ITC CV-65 USS Enterprise - Motorized and with Cam-A-Matic Action, 1/390, 3658-2-1198

Plastic Model Kit,   Box Condition: Exc+

Sold   

Rare action kit from the early 1960s. The ship sails in the water with an electric motor driving all four propellers. You can program the steering via the Cam-A-Matic drive to steer any number of patterns. While underway, the aircraft elevators move up and down and the ship launches aircraft. Inside, the kit has never been started and is like new. The original display cardboard is present and all parts and decals are still sealed in the factory bags. Instructions are included and as in new condition. The kit is advertised 'For the Advanced Hobbyist' on the box top and I would agree. There are a great many parts and no shortage of moving features and complications. ITC did not shy away from making advanced kit like this and the diving Halibut submarine (dives, surfaces, steers patterns and launches a Regulus II missile) but many kits were returned by frustrated parents and children who did not have the experience to build more complicated models. However, when built properly, they worked and they worked well.

The parts are either still in the factory sealed bag or 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.
