Huma Model Flettner Fl-282 - Bagged, 1/72

Plastic Model Kit

$32   

Successful German WWII helicopter design, and the first with counter-rotating intermeshing blades (in 1938). A further development of the Fl-265, flight tests showed that the Fl-282 was an excellent helicopter. It even flew from destroyers and minelayers while underway in the Baltic and Med. 1000 were ordered, but by the end of WWII only 24 had been built. The kit has never been started. All parts are either still in the factory sealed bag or have been inventoried complete. With decals and instructions.

Merlin Models Hawker Hart Frog Penguin Replica, 1/72

Plastic Model Kit,   Box Condition: Exc

$29   

Have you ever wanted to build the world's first injection molded plastic kits? Well, now you can and for an affordable price. As you know, Frog in England produced the world's first plastic model kits starting back in 1938. Merlin Models receive permission for this very limited edition, exact replica of this historic Frog Penguin kit. Nicely molded. Also includes photocopies of the original Penguin instructions. The kit has never been started and is complete with all parts and paperwork. In the late 1930s, before WWII, Frog created the world's first line of injection molded plastic model kits. Since Frog stood for 'Flies Right Off the Ground' and Frog had a famous line of flying models, the world's first all injection molded kits were called Frog Penguin for the bird that does not fly. The Penguin Hart was among the early pre-war releases by Frog.
