Entex De Havilland No.1 (DH-1) 1910 / Antoinette 1908 Monoplane / Voisin Farman 1908 Biplane 'The Pioneers of the Air' (Ex-Taimei), 1/72, 8448

Plastic Model Kit,   Box Condition: VG

Sold   

Rare and highly detailed kits from original Taimei molds. These are unique and accurate kits. The original internal frame structure and details of the aircraft is built from injection molded plastic. When complete, it is covered with a very strong fabric which is included. The result is a very realistic aircraft. Never started. Factory sealed bags complete with instructions. Fuji also released this kit from ex-Taimei molds, and since Entex lists the kits as being made in Japan (and uses Fuji's box art), it is likely that Fuji molded the kits for Entex. Some of these molds found their way to Renwal, where they may have been the inspiration for the famous Aeroskin series.

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 manufacturers 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.

Ideal Aeroplane & Supply SS City of Flint (EFC 1022 Design / 'Hog Islanders') Freighter/Steamship, 1115

Wood Model Kit,   Box Condition: Exc

Sold

Also includes full size plans/instructions, wood stock and dowels as required and two sheets of printwood. The kit has never been started. Inventoried complete with all parts and plans. The SS City of Flint was launched in 1919 as an EFC 1022 designed cargo freighter. She became famous as the first American ship captured by the Germans in WWII. Her first war experience was in picking up survivors from the British Steamer Athenia in September of 1939. In October of the same year, the City of Flint and her Great Britain bound cargo was captured by the German pocket battleship Deutschland (Lutzow). The story of the events after the capture and the Flint's eventually release is well worth reading.

Revell 1953 MG Model TD - Highway Pioneers Series 4, 1/32, H52-69

Plastic Model Kit,   Box Condition: VG++

Sold   

1953 early issue from the 'Foreign Car Models' collection molded in ivory plastic. The kit has not been started. It is still internally sealed in the factory 'crinkle' bag with the instructions. Before the 1950s 'model building' never made the top 10 list of boy's activities. Hobbies were nothing new to America in the 1930s/40s, but they were not mainstream. Shortly after the turn of the century, many dedicated modelers built flying or static airplanes, ship, train, automotive or other subjects. Basic kits existed, but the majority of these models were built from scratch, which demanded a high talent level developed from years of experience. That changed in the early 1950s. The phenomenon of the Revell/Gowland & Gowland 'Highway Pioneers' car kits was a significant force in proving that model building as a hobby could have mass appeal, provided that the kits were easy enough to build and finish. These 1/32 scale vehicles could be built in an hour after dinner and looked much like the real car. The Highway Pioneers series lead to the production of other subjects in plastic and the effect was revolutionary. By the early 1960s, model building was the #1 past time of American boys.
