Crown Boeing B-52H Stratofortress with Microscale 14-152 Decals - GMA-87A Skybolt / AGM-69 SRAM / AGM-28 Hound Dog / ADM-20 Quail Missiles, 1/144, 524-1000

Plastic Model Kit,   Box Condition: Exc

Sold   

Plaese note this kit includes the Microscale 1/144 part number 14-152 decal sheet. It includes markings for 'Big Country Bomber' 96th BW Texas, 'Lavender Panther' 92 BS Washington and 'Orlando' 367th BS Florida. Hard to find model. Excellent kit with great extras. Has all recessed panel line detail. Features all the missiles listed and 5 extra clear display stands for each. Has decals for two different aircraft in camo or SAC Anti-Nuclear Flash white and silver. The Skybolt was a plan to deliver an ALBM (Air Launched Ballistic Missile) from a B-52 to greatly enhance it's survivability. Skybolt failed 5 of 6 initial tests, but finally was successful. However, the program was canceled due to the availability of the Polaris SLBM. Plans to equip the RAF Vulcan with Skybolt fell through and left with British with no modern nuclear force, causing them to adapt the Polaris SLBM and passing strategic nuclear capability from the RAF to the RN. AGM-28 Hound Dog was a sleek design to help B-52 penetrate thick SAM defenses. Hound Dog could use it's engines to help the B-52 during take off and then could be refueled from the B-52's tanks. This was an important point as the B-52 carried 2 of these missiles at 5 tons each. Hound Dog had a range of 200 to 500 miles (depending on launch height) at Mach 2.0 and an accuracy of one mile at those ranges. The warhead was 4 megatons. SRAM was a nuclear-armed short range missile carried in quantity of 20. SRAM was designed to blast holes in defenses in front of the B-52 and for the final target. Quail was a decoy that would mimic the B-52 with radar reflectors, infrared, radar repeaters and chaff decoys. Quail did reach operational status and operated on some Hound Dog-equipped B-52s. Never started. Factory sealed bag or inventoried 100% complete with all parts, decals and instructions. Has factory decals for two aircraft - one on the box art and the camo version.

Megow 1938 Megow Catalog Number 4 - 51 Pages

Cardstock Paper Model Kit,   Box Condition: VG

Sold   

Rare Great Depression era Megow catalog. The cover has average wear but no tears or tape. Inside, there are no tears but there is an occasional 'check' mark by a kit that a lucky young builder may have owned - the owner of the catalog was the prolific builder and collector Theodore Allen Grant. The catalog includes a wonderful and detailed description of the 'Megow Organization' and photos of Mr. Megow, his staff and the factory. Features the full line of Megow gas, rubber powered flying and solid static scale models, gas motors, metal accessories for solid scale models and flying models, a large line of ship kits, ship motors and fittings, steam engines, saws, a spot welder, the 'Model Maker' with 6 power tools in one and since Megow was a distributor for hobby shops, there are other items 5 pages such as 8mm cameras and projectors, tools, stamps, etc. Fred Megow was a famous pioneer in the model aircraft field from the late 1920s till 1949. His product lines of semi-prefabricated, solid and stick and tissue kits won him national and extensive world wide distribution - possibly the first modern model manufacture to achieve this. His fascinating story involves trying novel and untested marketing ideas in the Great Depression, followed my explosive world-wide growth. Mr. Megow was a true pioneer in the early days of modeling and a leader in the low price field so that every boy could afford a kit during those difficult times. Megow also produced scale operating train and trackside kits, ship models (large and small) and automotive subjects. Megow's catalogs claim that they were pioneers in HO scale, and there is documentation to support this fact. Megow's early HO train kits served not only to promote this now-popular scale nationally, but were among the very first train kits.

Frog Supermarine S-6B Trail Blazers Issue, 1/72, F164

Plastic Model Kit,   Box Condition: VG+

Sold   

Very finely molded model. This kit has never been started. It is either still in the internally sealed factory bag or has been 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.
