Novo Techna Soviet M Class Submarine, 1/400

Plastic Model Kit

$12   

Ex-Soviet Union kit that is very well molded for that time with very fine detail and hull drain holes. Full hull model measures 4.5 inches long when assembled and includes display stand and decals. The kit has never been started. The parts are either inventoried complete or still in the internal factory sealed bags, which is attached to cardstock that is folded in two. At times the factory workers had to get pretty creative because of a shortage of staples. Beyond staples, I have seen the bag of parts attached with tape, a clothing snap, a rivet or even sewn on with thread! This M class kit even has a color painting guide on the back with English colors.

Frog Miles Magister 1 Trainer, 1/72, F153

Plastic Model Kit,   Box Condition: Exc++

$36   

Finely molded in dark yellow and clear. Builds to an excellent model. This kit has never been started. It has been 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 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.

Athearn MKT 50 Foot Auto Box Car - Metal HO Craftsman Kit, 1/87

Metal Model Kit,   Box Condition: Exc

$42   

In the 1930s and especially during the 40s/early 50s there was a revolution in model railroading: high quality kits became available for the first time. Before this, there were few standard gauges and most railroads were scratch built to any gauge the collector desired. This kit is a classic Athearn model from that era. These kits build very realistic models because parts that are metal on the real box car are metal in the kit; same for the wooden parts. All sides are factory painted and decorated the correct colors, leaving very little painting. Includes wooden floor, metal roof and car ends as well as opening doors, metal underside and detail fittings such as AB brake set, brake wheel, etc. These make great stand alone models or high-quality rolling stock for your line. The kit has not been started. All small parts are still in factory sealed bags and all other parts have been inventoried complete with the car sides in as new condition.
