Carl Goldberg was a gifted designer of model aircraft, and his career spanned the evolution of flying models. His designs and number of titles won in competition at the Nationals is legendary. His first competition was the 1928 Nationals, where he received honorable mention. By 1934 he won the indoor Nats and in 1935 he opened a Hobby Shop, among the first in the nation (the first one was probably opened by Cleveland Models Ed Packard). Awards came quickly. He wrote articles for Model Airplane News, and was Comet's top designer from 1939 till 1945. After Comet, he worked with Mike Schlesinger and Sid Axelrod on what eventually became Top-Flite Models. In 1955 he founded Carl Goldberg Models and released a still-popular line of scale, rubber, gas, glider and RC models.

Frog Blackburn Shark Torpedo Bomber - FAA RNAS Ford (1940) / Portuguese Navy Lisbon 1936 / 820 Sq FAA HMS Courageous 1937, 1/72, F179

Plastic Model Kit,   Box Condition: Exc

$34   

Final logo issue from the late 1970s just before Frog ceased production. Nicely molded kit contains parts and decals for all three versions. Features extended or folded wings, separately molded control surfaces, prop, wheels, optional floats or wheeled version and torpedo and bomb loads. With color painting guide and decals for the three aircraft listed. Never started. It has been inventoried complete with all parts and includes 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.

Final issue with the late 1970s Frog logo. Includes decals for both historic aircraft and a color painting guide as well. The kit has never been started.

Frog Westland Wallace Red Series, 1/72, F167

O-Lin Republic Seabee Amphibian - (Lindberg), 1/48, 503

Plastic Model Kit,   Box Condition: VG

$119   

Very rare kit. The Seabee was produced as a high performance sport amphibian. This is a very hard-to-fine original O-lin kit in the small box and advertisement for O-lin cement on the top. Produced in 1949 or just before. The model has not been started. Inventoried 100% complete with all parts, decals and instructions. O-Lin (correctly spelled with a hyphen) was founded by Paul Lindberg and a Mr. Olsen - hence the company name. Although a producer of flying models in the 1930s, O-lin produced some of the earliest American injection molded kits in the late 1940s. In 1950 the partnership may have ended, because all branding was changed to Lindberg and Paul Lindberg. I have not seen a catalog of O-lin, but from some instructions we know that the kit line sometime during the late 1940s was #100 C&NW Pioneer Locomotive and Tender, #500 F-80C Shooting Star, #501 Piper Cub Special, #502 Stinson, #503 Republic Seabee, #504 Beechcraft Bonanza, #505 F-86 Sabre Jet Fighter, #506 Ercoupe Club-Air and #507 Ryan Navion. More kits were issued as the 1940s came to a close and O-Lin ended all production. At some time in 1950 all kits were branded Lindberg only. It is common to see the earliest Lindberg kits with un-marked O-Lin instructions and "O-Lin Products Chicago 25, Ill." on the bottom of the teardrop stand. Paul Lindberg was careful to use up all the old materials on hand at O-lin.
