Frog DH-60G Gipsy Moth Trail Blazers - with Amy Johnson Figure, 1/72, F169

Plastic Model Kit,   Box Condition: Good+

Sold   

Very nicely molded kit. Includes a realistic standing figure of the famous Amy Johnson. 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, 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.

Airframe Etrich Taube - Bagged, 1/72

Vacuform Model Kit,   Box Condition: Good+

Sold   

Still factory sealed. Basic vacuform kit. Never started. Complete with all parts and instructions. Vacuform kits are not recommended for this without experience with this type of kit. The Taube was designed by Igo Etrich in 1910 in Austria. It was eventually built by several German aircraft companies and saw widespread service during WWI. For example, a Taube dropped bombs on Paris in August of 1915, with a note calling for the city to surrender. It was a Rumpler Taube that reported a Russian advance along the battle of Tannenberg in 1915, and a single Taube was operated from Tsingtao during the siege of that city by Anglo-Japanese forces from September to November of 1914.

Aurora-Heller Yakovlev Yak-3 (Yak-III) - Two USSR Aircraft - Normandie-Niemen French Squadron - Aurora Heller Issue, 1/72, 6610

Plastic Model Kit,   Box Condition: Exc+

Sold   

The Normandie-Niemen French Squadron was made up of French pilots who flew on the Eastern Front. Very nicely molded with recessed control surfaces and fine raised panel lines. The kit has never been started. The parts are still in the internal factory sealed bags and includes decals and instructions. Unusual Aurora-Heller kit. One of Aurora's last efforts was to market quality Heller kits with the "Aurora-Heller" name. It was a good fit - Heller made quality kits but did not have the extreme marketing reach that Aurora had in North America. The kits could obviously be produced without a significant capital expense for Aurora since Heller had already cut the molds. Heller molded the kits in France, shipped them to the USA, and Aurora added instructions and a box. Although this was a good idea, Aurora's problems went much deeper and it certainly was not enough to save the company.
