The stand parts are still wrapped in the factory tissue paper. The kit has never been started. Inventoried 100% complete including 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.

Sold

Monogram B-52 Stratofortress with Jet Sound Vietnam Camouflage Issue Factory Sealed, 1/72, PA215

Plastic Model Kit,   Box Condition: Sealed NM++

Sold   

Factory sealed kit in investment-grade condition. These models were designed with a major selling point - an internal parts display that could be seen by potential modelers at the store. The display showed major parts of the kit, glue and motor and called out numerous selling points. Then the factory shrink-wrapped these kits inside. Then box lid was installed and it was not shrink-wrapped again, so that the kit could be inspected at the point of sale. Outer cover is near mint; inner box is mint and sealed. Rare issue has Vietnam-style boxart on a high-gloss box. 2nd release of this kit and the last with 'Jet Sound'. At this point (1968), Monogram had ceased making 'Monoglue', but the B-52 presentation cardboard has a spot for glue and it was designed to be seen - so the factory put in a tube of 1968 Testors glue with rubber bands in the Monoglue spot. Contains 207 parts. Very nicely detailed. Features crew of three, detailed cockpit, elevating and traversing rear turret, opening and closing bomb bay doors, operating wing flaps, operating spoilers, optional position entry hatch and landing gear, and optional parts to display one nacelle open to show the jet engine.

Bandai Star Trek USS Enterprise Pre Painted with Light Kit, 1/850, 0116192

Plastic Model Kit,   Box Condition: Exc+

Sold   

Discontinued and hard to find. This is an amazing kit, please read carefully. All parts are precision and professionally painted at the factory. The 'Aztec' pattern is perfectly duplicated. All markings (example: NCC-1701) are all painted also. The paint job is flawless and stunning. There are a few detailed photos of the dozens and dozens of parts . The entire hull, saucer and warp engines are lit internally with the included lighting kit. The amazing part is that the model was designed from the ground up to be lit, so it has the following features: parts are molded in black plastic or have the inside surfaces painted so there is no light bleed through - there are numerous clear plastic light diffusers so the lighting is distributed evenly for a perfect effect. Where special effects are needed with lighting, such as the warp engines or navigational deflector, the pattern is molded into the clear piece and if needed, the clear is tinted blue, etc for the proper effect. The base holds the batteries. All parts are very carefully factory sealed so there are no scratches. The assembled model is 14 inches long. Never started. All parts are still sealed in the original factory sealed. Complete.
