Ideal Aeroplane & Supply RMS Queen Mary 'Super Detail' Wood and Metal Model - 32 inches long, 1/380

Wood and Metal Model Kit,   Box Condition: Fair-

Sold   

Ideal was a famous producer of early model kits. In 1911 they released their first aircraft kit, which put them among the first USA model companies. Ideal was unique also in that they released large ocean liners in a 'Super Detail' series - giving us the only large scale Normandie, SS America, Rex and RMS Queen Mary models ever made. This model is from 1938. The Queen Mary measures almost 32 inches long when assembled. It has a solid wood hull that is pre-carved, cast metal fittings (stairs, winches, lifeboats), pre-cut davits, assorted wooden stock, many printwood sheets and printed cardstock. The plans are full size and very good. The assembly procedure is detailed in writing and with the drawings. Sectional profiles are included as well as detail views. Please note that three wooden parts have been cut out. Quality of the work is excellent. There has been no assembly or other cut parts. The kit is complete with all wooden parts and rigging material - the metal parts are still sealed as well as the davits. The plans and cardstock have the typical yellow tint but are otherwise excellent.

Frog Arado Ar-234C-2 Four Engine Bomber with V-1/ Ar-234B-2 Twin Engine Bomber / AR-234C-3 Four Engine Blitz Bomber, 1/72, F417

Plastic Model Kit,   Box Condition: Sealed Exc++

Sold   

Still in the factory seal, but the seal has split. Includes parts and decals to make all three versions - Ar-234C-2 with Fi-103 Flying Bomb, Ar-234B-2 Blitz 9 Staffel, III/KG 76 Achmer 1945 (the first aircraft to be shot down and captured by the Allies for evaluation at RAE Farnborough) or Ar-234C-3 Production Machine early 145 (the war ended before it could be used operationally). 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.
