Frog Dornier Do-17 Z-2 - Finnish or German Markings - Orange Series, 1/72, F205

Plastic Model Kit,   Box Condition: VG-

Sold   

Build rare Finnish Air Force variant from PLeLv 46 (1943) or German 1 Gruppe KG3, France (1940). Very nice kit done to high Frog standards. Can be build to a very realistic model as there are no rivets and only very fine panel lines. This kit has never been started. 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, Blue, 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.

ITC Halibut SSGN 587 Cam-A-Matic Submarine - (Electric Powered Diving Motorized Regulus Sub), 1/175, 3660-998

Plastic Model Kit,   Box Condition: Good

Sold   

From 1960. This model is the zenith of the ITC Design and Engineering Team, and maybe of all operational plastic model kits. It is not only rare but is considered the most complicated operating model ever produced. The large 24.75 inch submarine sails from the power of a large electric motor driving twin geared propellers. It changes headings, dives, surfaces, and a Regulus II missile comes out of the hanger and launches...all automatically. The engineering on this kit is fantastic and a major break-through for its time. The model worked, and did work well, but was certainly not a toy for inexperienced model builders. The high price ($9.98) and difficulties that youngsters had with assembly and operation made for a short production run. The fact the ITC left the model business for good shortly after releasing the kit contributed to the scarcity as well. The boxtop grades 'good' with four solid original corners and excellent color. It would grade higher than 'good' but there is red spray paint on the right short side and a very small, fine amount near it on the box top. There is light to medium general wear as shown. Inside, the kit is in excellent condition and as new. It has never been started. All the parts that were in factory sealed bags are still factory sealed. The hull halves and battery holder were never sealed and are in 'new' condition. The blue display cardboard is all present and in 'excellent' condition. The decals and instructions are 'excellent' as well.

ITC Halibut SSGN 587 Cam-A-Matic Electric Powered Diving Motorized Submarine - (Regulus Sub), 1/175, 3660-998

The high price ($9.98) and difficulties that youngsters had with assembly and operation made for a short production run. The fact the ITC left the model business for good shortly after releasing the kit contributed to the scarcity as well. This kit is unusual in that it never had the common 'Seen on TV Maverick' sticker on the box top. The box is not perfect, but is the best I have seen. It has factory-new color and gloss, no fading or stains, one price tag on a long side and two small pieces of clear tape on each long side. Two corners are solid, and the other two have been properly and expertly repaired from the inside. There is light general wear as shown. Inside, the kit is in exceptional, factory-new condition. It has never been started. All of the parts that were factory sealed are still in the factory sealed bags. The two hull halves and batter holder are still in place in their cardboard display. The blue display cardboard is 100% present and in near mint condition as well. The instructions are in superb near-mint condition as well, with none of the usual yellowing.
