Dated 1979. Nicely detailed kit for that time with markings for the three aircraft listed above. Never started. Never started. Inventoried 100% complete with all parts, decals and instructions. Lufthansa was a pioneer in trans-oceanic mail services and the Do-15 and Do-18 grew to fit this need. Given the German interests in South America, it was no surprise that they established one of the first airmail services between Europe and that continent. This kit will build one of those aircraft, the Lufthansa South Atlantic Mail Aircraft (1938) D-AANE 'Zyklon' or the military version. The Do-18 was an improved D0-15 'Wal' and set several records during it's long useful life.

1970 final log issue is nicely detailed and molded featuring fine raised surface detail, no rivets, crew of three, optional position landing gear, two wing pylons with bombs, separately molded ailerons, elevators & rudder and more. Incluces decals for the two different aircraft listed and a 3 view color painting guide on the back of the box. This kit has never been started. It is still in the internally sealed factory bag with 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.

Please note that Revell lists this kit as 1/54 but I have noted it as 1/69 because the built missile measures 8" tall and the actual missile is 45.9 feet tall. That comes out to be 1/69.

Kemziv Antonov AN-2M - (ex-MEE), 1/50

Plastic Model Kit,   Box Condition: Good


Rare and likely from the late 1970s. One of at least two Kemziv issues, and probably the earliest of the two known.

The model has never been started and all parts are still sealed in the factory 'krinkle' clear plastic bags. Includes color insignia sheet and full instructions. The insignia are CCCP and Aeroflot for a civil AN-2 transport. This model is the Ex-MEE 1/50 AN-2 kit that was sold as a built up display model and a kit. Production ended at MEE in about 1984. Some molds passed to Genton at that point, and obviously Kemziv got them at some point. Thanks to Tom Marino for help on this.

Cavacraft Fokker D-7 - Factory Built Control Line Flying Model 1/2A Engines - 14 Inch Wingspan - (DVII), G-3

Wood Model Kit,   Box Condition: Exc


Very rare and from 1955. This is a very highly prefabricated model. Cavacraft used a generic box (with a SE-5 and DVII) for all of these and the only way to know the contents is by the ink stamp on the side. This box is correct for the DVII. NOTE: build only, please read very carefully for the condition. 1950s wood pre-fab flying model for gas power U-Control. I am almost certain that the box artwork was originally painted by Jim Cox who also did all of the early Aurora box art paintings. Regardless of the manufacturer he was working for, Mr. Cox had a strong tendency to show the D-VII and it's pilot in horrible, certain death situations. Here the Scout pilot pours lead directly into the unfortunate Luftstreitkrafte pilot while his stricken engine spews oil and smoke. Cavacraft pulled out all the stops on this model. When you open the lid, the first thing you see are the factory-built wings installed in the fuselage with the tail feathers in place. It is literally ready to assemble. Everything is sheeted but the wings, for which covering material is provided. All of the main balsa parts are pre-carved and finished, while the flat ones are die-cut. includes a die-cut plywood firewall, fully formed wire landing gear, completely finished wheels, hinge material, covering tissue for the wings and some hardware. This kit has not been started. NOTE: missing the plans/instructions and missing the decals, as well as the screws for mounting the engine of your choice (the engine was not included with the kit). I believe that the model is complete other than those things listed; this collector loved to remove the instructions and decals from his kits for 'safe keeping' but that location was never discovered. Please be aware that this is sold AS-IS as I cannot do a complete inventory as there are no instructions. Although I have not seen them, this box and art were clearly used for more than one kit. The only way to identify what is inside is by the ink stamp on the left and right sides of the box. The kit number "G-3" implies there may have been at least three kits, and one of them may have been a Sopwith Camel. Thanks to Dusty Rhodes, we know that G2 was the British SE-5.
