Email for availability.

Built in Japan 1936-38 on a Soviet contract, Soya's delivery was canceled due to tension between the Empire and the USSR. Purchased by the IJN in 1939, Soya survived multiple US and British attacks in WW II, with damage and crew losses. Postwar, the vessel helped to repatriate refugees from Japanese territory seized and occupied by the USSR. Postwar, Soya enjoyed a long career as an ice breaker and rescue ship. In 1959, news outlets around the world reported Soya's rescue of two huskie dogs after severe weather had forced an earlier expedition to leave them behind. She is now a museum ship, restored to her original, 'as launched' commercial freighter configuration. The long career of this ship exemplifies the recovery and resurgence of the spirit of modern Japan. This model is from all new molds and does justice to this historic vessel. Full-hull model has 323 pieces and includes all deck fittings, float plane, helicopter and more. The kit has never been started. The parts are still in the internal factory sealed bags and includes decals and instructions.

Plastic Model Kit,   Box Condition: Good+

Frog Bristol Beaufighter Mk.21 Spin Issue - 31 Sq 77 Wing Dutch East Indies 1944 / 22 Sq RAAF Australian Air Force Sanga Sanga Phillipines Late 1944 - Green Series, 1/72, F291Spin

Plastic Model Kit,   Box Condition: Good+

$29   

Hard-to-find 1970s 'Spin' version. This kit contains the extra parts required to accept the Frog F20 Spin-a-prop motorizing kit (not included). Nicely molded kit with no rivets for a realistic model when built. Has load-out and markings for the two aircraft listed. The kit has never been started. The actual airplane has been inventoried complete with all parts and includes decals and instructions. NOTE: missing display stand. 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.
