Second issue of this kit. Dated 1968. Please note the three Iron Crosses on the box top design. This box has a factory 'Mattel' sticker over the 100 price extension on one side.

Inventoried 100% complete including decals and instructions.

Vacuform Model Kit,   Box Condition: Good+++

Inventoried 100% complete with all parts, decals and instructions. The Pe-8 was a famous and successful USSR heavy bomber that was designed in 1934 and first flown in 1936. Since the USSR did not have a definitive heavy bomber doctrine, only between 81 and 93 were built, but they lead active service lives. In use, the PE-8s performance matched Western Heavy Bombers designed during the same time. In August of 1941, PE-8s bombed Berlin. They were used to attack long range targets in German-held Eastern Europe, as well as for tactical support during the battles of Stalingrad and Kursk. It was a PE-8 that flew over German airspace between May 19th and June 13th in 1942 to deliver USSR Foreign Minister Molotov and his delegation from Moscow to London and then to Washington DC and back for talks on grand strategy against Nazi Germany. As a testament to the soundness of the design, PE-8s remained in service till the 1950s, even after the Tu-4 was available.

Inventoried 100% complete with all parts decals and instructions. Frog is considered the father of injection molded model kits. The Lines Brothers opened Frog in 1932, capitalizing on the fever caused by Lindberg's solo transatlantic flight. Almost overnight the western populations became 'Air-Minded', and anything aviation was in high demand. Frog created a quality line of stick and tissue rubber powered aircraft and gliders as well as innovative ready-to-fly rubber powered aircraft that required no assembly. The box even contained a built-in rubber motor winder and fuselage holder. Model airplane flight competitions were popular in Great Britain, and one category was 'Rise Off the Ground', or ROG. By changing this to 'Flies Right Off the Ground', the FROG name was born. In 1936 Frog created a line of injection molded plastic models, the first such kit line in the world (Hawk sold a line of injection molded aircraft models in 1934 but they were factory assembled and painted). Named 'Penguin' after the bird that does not fly, the kits were innovative beyond the means of production. At a time when models were simply built by wingspan, the Penguin line was a constant 1/72 scale. Furthermore, a large 1/72 Short S.30 Empire class flying boat contained a full interior and lights! A line of accessories such as AA guns, tractors, hanger, ambulance, sound locator, searchlights and lighting kits were quickly added to the line. WWII caused a pause in production. After the war the box color changed from silver to green, and Penguin kits were also marketed in the USA. Production ended in 1950. Frog quickly expanded and released the Red, Orange, Black, Green, Gold Token, Spin and Comet series as well as Trail Blazers and several others. It is noteworthy that while most manufactures in the 1940s/50 were making toy-like models, Frog attempted to make very realistic models. For example, 'detailing' kits with excessively large rivets was once very popular. Frog ignored this trend and continued to mold aircraft with fine panel lines and no rivets. As a result, Frog kits can be built into very realistic replicas. Production ended in the late 1970s, but Frog molds are still in use around the world.

Comet Sparky - 32 inch Wingspan Wakefield-Style Balsa Flying Model Airplane, R9-59

Wood Model Kit,   Box Condition: Exc


Rare large flying model in the 'Coca-Cola' bottle box. These aircraft were common in the 1930s when the sport of free-flight model airplanes reached it's zenith. It was not uncommon for these models to fly for 45 minutes or more on rubber power alone - many flew out of site, and it became common practice to write your name, address and phone number on the covering tissue. Comet was a famous manufacture of stick and tissue flying and static models. In the 1930s Great Depression, they lead the low-priced kit revolution with the "Dime Scale" kits and famous advertisements in Model Airplane News magazine and others. Comet reached it's peak in the 1930s when they acquired the services of Carl Goldberg. Goldberg was a highly accomplished modeler with articles in Model Airplane News and famous designs that won him several National level competitions in the 1930s and beyond. (Carl Goldberg went on to found his own company and produced well designed and popular free-flight and RC aircraft). Comet survived the post World War economic slump and continued kit production until they were bought out by long-time competitor Guillow's in 1998. Kit features traditional wood/tissue construction, detailed full size plans, building instructions, hardware, wheels and canopy material (if required), tissue and propeller. The model has not been started. The parts are either in factory sealed bag(s) or inventoried 100% complete with all parts and instructions.
