Bluejacket Smuggler 1877 Gloucester Schooner - 33 Inch Long Wooden Ship Model - O Scale, 1/48, 1012

Wood and Metal Model Kit,   Box Condition: Exc

Sold   

A superb model that sells new for $340. Of all aspects of New England fishing in the late 19th century, none was more distinctive than the mackerel purse-seine fishery with it's specialized gear, exacting techniques and fast, handsome schoolers built specifically for this seasonal work. Smuggler, with her extreme clipper hull, was one of the most beautiful of them all. This is a wood and metal model of the highest quality. When assembled, it measures 33 inches long and 25.5 inches high. Features a pre-carved basswood hull, laser cut hardwood parts, finely cast Britannia pewter fittings, all materials needed for deckhouses, spars and rigging material as well as three sheet of superb full-size plans. The kit has never been started. All parts are still in the factory sealed internal bags and includes plans (in mint condition) and the large instruction book (which is slightly used, it looks to have been studied). NOTE: unless you specify otherwise, this kit will ship in the original (very sturdy) model box wrapped in brown paper. If you specify, I will be glad to pack it inside a box but extra shipping will apply.

Frog Handley Page Hampden, 1/99, 397P

Plastic Model Kit,   Box Condition: Good+

Sold   

Rare near 1/100 scale Frog aircraft kit from the 1950s with wonderful box artwork. Finely molded with all recessed panel lines. Includes clear stand and glue capsule. There is no assembly but NOTE: the inside of the fuselage is very neatly painted interior green. There is no other painting. Inventoried 100% complete with all parts, decals and instructions present. NOTE: decals are photocopies. 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.
