Frog Grumman F8F-1B Bearcat Naval Fighter - VF-72 USS Leyte (CV-32) or GC1/21 French Air Force Bac-Mai (Hanoi) 1952 - (F8F1B), 1/72, F407

Plastic Model Kit,   Box Condition: VG+

Sold   

Includes decals for both versions. Like most Frog kits, this one is well molded and has fine panel lines only- no rivets. This makes for a realistic model when built up. 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.

MPM Misubishi J8M1 (Japanese Me-163 Comet), 1/72, 72037

Sold   

Well molded injection kit with fine recessed panel lines, photoetched details and an very good cockpit. Never started. Inventoried 100% complete with all parts, decals and instructions. The Japanese copy of the Me-163 Komet was a last ditch attempt to stop the B-29 raids. Gliding tests went well, but on it's first powered flight, the motor quit and the aircraft crashed. The end of the war stopped further development.

WWS Unknown Battleship Design Imperial Japanese Navy, 1/700, 6

Resin Model Kit,   Box Condition: VG+

Sold   

Unusual subject that appears to be a Japanese battleship or battlecruiser design that did not go beyond the drawing boards. I am not certain of this, however. NOTE: this kit is not complete. To complete it I would purchase a 1/700 FUSO or the like. This kit has a very low piece count from the factory, like most models of 'proposed' (never built) ships. The instructions are 5 pages but all in Japanese. The 5th page has assembly illustrations. I can say for sure that (2) of the (5) turrets are missing along with the main gun barrels and the front superstructure. The two missing turrets are identical to the 3 turrets that are present. There may be other small parts missing as well, such as searchlight platforms, etc. Again, another 1/700 early IJN battleship kit would go a long way to make this whole. Never started and sold 'as is.'

Tri-ang HMS Queen Elizabeth

Metal Model Kit,   Box Condition: VG+

Sold   

Factory built and painted; not an assembly kit. Part of the famous ocean liner series from Tri-ang. This example is very nice, with all original paint in fine condition and with the original masts and funnels. Usually the masts are missing and the funnels are warped, but not with this example. The paint shows light wear as shown but displays very well. There is no box, and it will be shipped with the masts removed for safety. They simply slide back into the deck holes.
