AMT Beechcraft G17S Staggerwing, 1/48, T638

Plastic Model Kit,   Box Condition: Good+

$38   

This well molded model from the 1970s includes interior detail, full engine, optional position landing gear and more. Never started. It has been inventoried complete with all parts and includes decals and instructions. Please note that the box displays better than the 'good+' rating but is graded as such because there is a narrow 1.5 inch long tape pull on the other side on the far right. The Staggerwing is still considered one of the finest civil aircraft designs to reach mass production. The brainchild of Walter Beech, the G17S had a top speed of over 200 mph and landed at 60 mph - all in 1932. It was faster than many fighter planes of the day.

Lindberg F-80C Shooting Star - (P-80), 1/48, 500-98

Plastic Model Kit,   Box Condition: NM

$64   

1950s issue. The hardbox is in exceptional investment-grade "near mint" condition with fantastic color and gloss, four solid corners, no fading and no tears. Very slight wear (mainly on the corners) is the only flaw. Molded in the correct silver and clear with the early O-lin style teardrop-based stand. The kit has not been started and is complete with all parts, decals and instructions. Paul Lindberg got his start in 1930s model aviation by designing, building and flying stick and tissue aircraft. His plans appeared in Popular Aviation magazine and he soon made a name for himself. When injection molding showed the way to increased kit sales in the late 1940s/early 1950s, he quickly teamed up with Mr. Olsen to create 'O-lin' models. Ray Gaedke was one the the early artists for O-lin, and he help pioneer dramatic and colorful box artwork. In the early 1950s Paul Lindberg was running the company and had the logo changed to his name. The first logo was circular, with 'Lindberg' in middle and 'Products' 'Incorporated' arched across the top and bottom. The second logo is the 'Yellow Rectangle' that is on this kit. Ray Gadke continued his bold and colorful artwork for Lindberg and did this F-80C boxart as well.

Lincoln Bristol Helicopter Sycamore, 1/64, 110

Plastic Model Kit,   Box Condition: VG+

$48   

Nicely molded, larger scale model from the late 1950s or early 1960s. Never started. The small parts are still in the internal factory sealed bag, and the larger parts that were never sealed have been inventoried complete including decals and instructions. Lincoln was based in Hong Kong. Plastic kits were not the primary business, but they established quite a line of them before discontinuing production in the late 1960s/early 1970s. Many molds moved to Kader, also in Hong Kong, who reissued the line. Many molds eventually found their way to the USA either through ATP (who purchased the excess kit stock when Kader sold out) or IM.

MPM Kawanishi N1K1 'Shinden' George, 1/72, 72123

Plastic Model Kit,   Box Condition: Exc++

$16   

Kit features fine, all recessed panel line detail, many photoetched parts and decals for four aircraft. Never started. Factory sealed bag or inventoried 100% complete with all parts, decals and instructions. During construction of the NiK1 Kyofu (Strong Wind) float plane, the design team at Kawanishi did a study of converting that aircraft to a land-based fighter. The design seemed very promising, but the Japanese Navy rejected it. Kawanishi decided to privately fund the building of prototypes regardless. The aircraft flew and flew well, but the navy was unimpressed as they ordered the J2M Raiden into production. Kawanishi, undaunted, built four additional prototypes. The IJN was finally won over, and funds were released to produce the fighter. Production problems were solved in time for the Shiden (Violet Lightning) to see action before the end of the war, but not in significant numbers to change the tide. The Shiden was an excellent aircraft, but a modified version, NiK2-J may have been the finest Japanese Naval fighters of the war.

Frog Handley Page Hampden, 1/99, 397P

Plastic Model Kit,   Box Condition: VG+

$69   

Rare small-scale Frog aircraft kit from the 1950s with wonderful box artwork. Finely molded with all recessed panel lines and includes clear stand and glue capsule. Never started. It has been inventoried complete with all parts and includes 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, 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.

Eagles Talon Yokosuka E14Y Glen - Submarine Aircraft, 1/48, ET204

Vacuform Model Kit,   Box Condition: Good

$68   

Sale Pending
Sign up for the Hotlist.

Rare 1/48 model and still the only Glen in this scale. Features main parts cleanly vacuformed in white plastic with a clear canopy and resin details. Never started. The kit has been inventoried and NOTE missing the straight float struts. Because they are simple and flat, they are easily made from stock or sheet plastic. Includes all other parts and instructions. Although many countries attempted to develop submarine float planes, only one country that succeeded in making them operational. The Japanese E14Y met all requirements for quick assembly/disassembly, storage in a drum on the submarine deck, taking the stress of catapult launch & open sea landings and yet still having enough speed and weapons load to be a viable combat aircraft. The first prototype was flown in 1939 and was followed by 125 production aircraft. The E14Y was first used operationally (in war) for post-strike evaluation of Pearl Harbor on December 7, 1941. Based on I-7 thru I-11 and I-15-I-35, the Glen was used for anti-shipping flights as well as reconnaissance flights over Australia, New Zealand, Africa, Madagascar, the Aleutians and the US Mainland. It is most famous for carrying out the only bombing of the US Mainland on September 9th and 29th, 1942. As time went on and radar became widespread, the E14Y was removed from front line use. From that point on, it was used extensively on the home front at a patrol bomber.
