Frog Gloster Gladiator II - Norwegian Fighter Wing Stavanger Airfield Norway April 1940 or RAF 247 Sq Plymouth 1940, 1/72, F429

Plastic Model Kit,   Box Condition: Exc

Sold   

Final issue with the late 1970s Frog logo. Nicely molded kit for that time with fine detail. Includes color paint guide and decals for both aircraft. NOTE: this kit has minor, 'professional' quality assembly to 3 parts: two lower wing panels to the lower wing. There is no other assembly. The actual aircraft has been inventoried complete with all parts and includes decals and instructions, but NOTE: Missing display stand. 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.

Aurora Curtiss JN-4 Jenny, 1/48, 114-98

Plastic Model Kit,   Box Condition: Good-

Sold   

First issue dated 1957 with Jo Kotula art and the 'new' (that year) Famous Fighters oval logo with the sunburst inside. Molded in a wonderful gloss yellow, black and clear. The kit has never been started. Inventoried 100% complete with all parts, decals and instructions. Please note that the box displays much better than the 'good-' rating but is graded as such because there is a 1.5" x .5" sticker on the right short side (partially torn) and clear tape on both long sides at the bottom.

Aurora DeHavilland DH-4 - (DH4), 1/48, 112-98

Plastic Model Kit,   Box Condition: Good++

Sold   

First issue dated 1957 with classic Jo Kotula artwork. Part of the famous WWI 1/48 scale series of aircraft that Aurora issued starting in 1956. Molded in the correct gloss olive drab and black plastic, including figures and the ground base with chocks. Never started. It has been inventoried complete with all parts and includes decals and instructions. Besides it's distinguished career in WWI, the DH-4 saw extensive post war service in numerable ways. One of the most interesting was as a United States Post Office air mail service aircraft. The aircraft's likeness even graced an airmail stamp of the time. In about 1925, the Post Office decided to upgrade. The prototype was the Douglas M-1 and an improved version, the M-2, became the next mail carrier. The M-2 is also an Aurora kit in the same scale.

Airfix Super Mystere / OV-10 Bronco / THREE F-84G Thunderjet, 1/72, 03020-3

Plastic Model Kit,   Box Condition: VG to Exc

Sold   

SALE!! Includes all 5 kits in the boxes shown. NOTE: Sold AS-IS and not inventoried. This collector was very meticulous and of his kits that I did inventory, 95% are complete. But on these kits he cut the sprue (trees) with the part numbers still attached to each number, so the parts are loose. Because of that, I have not inventoried these kits. NOTE: he built minor sub assemblies on the three Heller kits and the Super Mystere (and major subassemblies on the Bronco) to 'professional' quality. He also almost always removed the displays stands (if provided). Again, these kits are sold not inventoried and AS IS hence the very low price.

KVZ TWO Sukoi Su-7 Fishpot - Russian / Polish / Czech Air Forces, 1/72

Plastic Model Kit,   Box Condition: Good+

Sold   

SALE!! Includes two models in one box. One kit is mint and never started. On the other kit, NOTE: it has 'professional' quality subassembly as follows: tail cone and instrument panel glued inside one fuselage half. Wing halves assembled. The actual aircraft have been inventoried complete and included decals and instructions but NOTE that the display stands are missing. In my opinion, this is one of the best KVZ kits to build. Has very good fit, finish and detail for that time. Cold-war model from the former German Democratic Republic and includes decals for three countries listed.

Aurora Nieuport 11, 1/48, 101-79

Plastic Model Kit,   Box Condition: NM

Sold   

Rare third issue in investment-grade 'Near Mint' condition. Although copyright dated 1956 on the side and sporting the original Jim Cox artwork, this kit is from the early/mid 1960s due to the blue boarder logo. Molded in the correct gloss olive drab and black plastic. Never started. Inventoried 100% complete with all parts decals and instructions. Thanks to Eugene DuBey, we know some history on the aircraft that Aurora modeled.

Aurora Fokker E111 Eindekker - (E-111), 1/48, 134-79

Plastic Model Kit,   Box Condition: VG

Sold   

Dated 1963. Nicely molded kit that was popular for decades. Feature great Jo Kotula box art, pilot and cockpit, detailed engine, ground crew member and ground display base with wheel chocks. Molded in tan and black plastic. Never started. It has been inventoried complete with all parts and includes decals and instructions. This is part of the famous Aurora WWI series of 1/48 scale aircraft. The series began in 1956 and Aurora added new kits into the early 1960s. The line proved incredibly popular, so these kits were included in the 'mold upgrade' in the 1970s before Aurora went out of business.

Wood Model Kit,   Box Condition: Good

Sold   

Very rare, 1950s model kit that is very highly prefabricated. The SUPERFORM kits were a few steps above the Jigtime models and priced so also.

There are full instructions for Jetex installation or using a rubber band launcher. The kit has never been started. It has been inventoried complete with all parts and includes decals and instructions. The only other advertised SUPERFORM kit listed is the F-86D Sabre Jet with a 13" wingspan.
