Monogram Stanley Mouses Fred Flypogger as 'Flip Out!' - The Beachcomber, MM105-100

Plastic Model Kit,   Box Condition: VG

Sold   

Rare kit from 1965 and the original issue. Monsters and wild figure kits were the rage in the 1960s, lead by Aurora. Monogram's limited entry into the field was done with typical high quality and Stanley Mouse was the designer. The kit features well detailed and high quality moldings of Fred Flypogger, a can of 'Canned Surf', blue tinted clear 'sweat' for the can or his chin, hair that can go in either direction, blue tinted clear eyes, a background of breaking surf waves, a shark, surfboard, starfish, fly and of course the mouse - and a display base. The kit has never been started. Inventoried 100% complete including instructions.

Monogram Predicta Personal Car by Darryl Starbird, 1/24, PC95-149

Plastic Model Kit,   Box Condition: Exc-

Sold   

Hard-to-find original hardbox issue from 1964. The kit features operating 'Unistick' steering, working bubble top, opening hood, detailed engine, deep dish chrome plated wheels and highly detailed interior. The kit is molded in dark red, white and clear with chrome parts and real rubber wheels. The red is an incredible glossy red, so this was likely an early run when the molds were still highly polished. Never started. Inventoried 100% complete with all parts, decals and instructions. The Starbird-designed Predicta was the crowd's favorite, travelling over 50,000 miles coast-to-coast and winning many car shows, including the famous Oakland Roadster Show. She was the first in the custom field to have an electrically operated full Lucite Bubble Top and 'Unistick' steering where the wheels are turned by a centrally-located aircraft style control stick. Power was provided by a 392 CID '57 Chrysler Fuel Injection engine.

Thousands of these were given away. They flew so well that a National Championship Contest was organized where awards were given for the best maneuverability and longest flights. The aircraft were re-introduced in 1966, and these excellent full color reproductions are from 1986. They have never been started and are complete.

Frog Vickers Supermarine Spitfire II, 1/72, 394P

Plastic Model Kit,   Box Condition: Exc

Sold   

1950s issue molded in medium blue. Finely done with all recessed panel lines, clear stand and complete with glue capsule. 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, 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.

Sold   

Rare motorized car kit from ITC (Ideal Toy Corporation). Includes electric motor, wiring, brass contacts, gears and switches for motorized operation. The car itself is molded in cream, silver, clear and with real rubber tires.

In previous publications the kit is listed as 1/24 scale - it actually measures out to about 1/21. The kit has never been started and is complete with all parts and instructions. The rubber tires cause typical small 'burn' marks on the right door, fender and hood.
