Nichimo U-Boat Type IXB Wolfpack U-107 Submarine - Motorized, 1/200, U-2009-500

Plastic Model Kit,   Box Condition: Good-

Sold   

Large 1/200 scale kit that is very nicely molded and well detailed. Molded in two colors, red and gray. Features complete deck fittings, removable torpedo magazine covers with torpedoes inside, rotating deck gun, hand rails and five crew members. Includes all hardware for motorizing; the motor (common FA-130) must be purchased separately as Nichimo did not provide it with the kit. The kit has never been started. All of the small plastic parts are still in the factory sealed bags; the hull was never sealed and is present. The hardware bag was opened so I inventoried it and NOTE: missing (2) small screws. These are stock (generic) items and easy to replace. Otherwise included all other hardware, decals and instructions.

Frog Martin Baltimore Bomber - RAF - Green Series, 1/72, F339

Plastic Model Kit,   Box Condition: VG

Sold   

Green Series issue that shares dramatic Jo Kotula box art with the Air Lines issue. Finely molded without rivets - just fine panel lines. Features rotating turret, crew of three and some interior detail and optional position landing gear. Never started and inventoried complete with all parts and includes decals and instructions. The box would grade slightly higher than the 'very good' rating but there is a 3/4" x 3/4# price tag tear on the short left side. 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.

RS Models Tachikawa Ki-94 II - Japanese High Altitude Interceptor, 1/72, 92038

Plastic Model Kit,   Box Condition: Sealed Mint

Sold   

Still factory sealed. This excellent kit is crisply molded and features all fine recessed panel lines, resin details, many brass PE parts, an excellent cockpit, detailed wheel wells and optional parts to build either the prototype or the planned production version. Includes two sets of decals. The original Ki-94 (the 'I' variant) was to be a twin-boom design intended to intercept the B-29 Superfortress. However, the Japanese Army Air Force decided that it was too complicated, made too many 'leaps forward' and that the performance over overly optimistic. The 'II' variant (this kit) was a much more conventional design that still offered a great improvement over existing interceptors. It was designed for high-altitude battle and had a pressurized cockpit and very heavy armament. This design was approved by the Koku Hombu, and the aircraft was designated Ki-94-II (the scrapped earlier Ki-94 design was named the Ki-94-I). An order was placed for one static test airframe, three prototypes, and eighteen pre-production aircraft. Only 2 prototypes were built; the first was equipped with a single Nakajima Ha-44 engine driving a 4-blade propeller because the 6-blade prop was not ready. The second prototype was to be fitted with the correct propeller. But as with many other project, the approaching end of the war and shortage of resources brought a halt to the construction of the second prototype. At the end of the war, the first prototype still being readied for its maiden flight and although complete, probably did not fly.
