Plastic Model Kit,   Box Condition: Exc

Sold   

"This kit has never been started and all parts, decals and resin parts are still sealed in the factory bags. Limited edition with instructions and resin parts for eliminating the lower radome pods and adding large vertical stabilizer fins to the wings. Thanks to Jun Oizumi for the following information about this special aircraft - 'Under a contract awarded in February 1977 by the Technical Research and Development Institute of the Japan Defense Agency, Kawasaki modified the 39th production P2V-7 to experimental configuration as a Variable Stability Aircraft (VSA). Seven major modifications were made to the basic P2V-7 aircraft:1. Installation of a fly-by-wire control system, with mechanical backup.2. Installation, with flight control computer monitoring, of variable stability system to measure (a) variable control feelings such as hysteresis, breakout forces etc; and (b) variable aircraft response, both lateral and longitudinal.3. Removal of outboard trailing-edge flaps and replacement with direct lift control (DLC) flaps of 14 ft 0 in (4.27 m) span, with 20 upward and 40 downward travel. Vortex generators added forward of DLC flaps.4. Addition of aerofoil-section, all-moving side force surface (SFS), extending above and below each wing, out-board of jet engine pod, with 30 travel to left or right. Each SFS was 14 ft 5.25 in (4.40 m) high.5. Attachment of perforated airbrake to inside of each weapons bay door.6. Removal of all ASW equipment, including APS-20 radome, though retaining MAD tail cone.7. Installation of flight instrumentation and recorders, including angle of attack/sideslip sensors above nose. Addition of two control operators' consoles in tactical compartment of fuselage.The aircraft, which had the company project designation KA-353, made its first flight at Gifu on December 23, 1977, and was handed over to the 51st Air Squadron of the JMSDF for evaluation in 1978. After two years of experimental flying, it became a training aircraft for JMSDF test pilots, and was used, among other things, to develop STOL approaches, with the aid of ventral airbrakes, at glide slope angles of up to 6-7. The aircraft was withdrawn from use in 1982.'

Frog Black Widow P-61 - 'Double Trouble' or 'Lady of the Dark', 1/72, F170

Plastic Model Kit,   Box Condition: Good+

Sold   

Orange Series. Very nicely molded kit with fine raised panel detail - no rivets. 61 parts. Features separately molded ailerons, elevator and rudders as well as optional position landing gear, crew and crew stations and detailed motors. This kit has never been started. Inventoried 100% complete with all parts, decals and instructions. NOTE: decals are from the FROG/AMT release and are for 'Double Trouble' and 'Lady of the Dark'. 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, Blue, 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.
