Hawk Supermarine S6B Racer (S-6B S.6B), 1/48, 618-60

Sold   

Still factory sealed but the seal has multiple splits. Softbox issue dated 1958 with Bill Campbell artwork. Very nicely molded kit with fine recessed panel lines and raised rib lines. Excellent fit. The S6B was designed by RJ Mitchel for Schneider Trophy Races. The S6B was powered by a liquid cooled Rolls Royce V-12 with radiators on the bottom and side fuselage skins. The aircraft won the Schneider in 1931 at 341.8 mph and later set a world record as the first aircraft to exceed 400 mph. Mitchell incorporated the best parts of the S6B into his masterful creation, the Spitfire, which was completed just before his death. Mitchell saw the war coming and understood the need for the Spitfire. He knew that he was very ill, but was driven to complete this design for his country.

Frog Fiat G55 (G-55) - 1 Squadriglia I Gruppo Caccia Aviazione RAI 1944 and Erprobungskommando Unit Luftwaffe 1944, 1/72, F216

Plastic Model Kit,   Box Condition: Sealed Exc++

Sold   

Still factory sealed but the seal has splits. Final logo issue from the late 1970s, just before Frog ceased kit production. Very nicely molded kit. Contains decals for both aircraft. 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.

Kit features traditional wood/tissue construction, detailed full size plans, building instructions, hardware, wheels and canopy material (if required), tissue and propeller. Comet was a famous manufacturer of stick and tissue flying and static models. In the 1930s Great Depression, they lead the low-priced kit revolution with the "Dime Scale" kits and famous advertisements in Model Airplane News magazine and others. Comet reached it's peak in the 1930s when they acquired the services of Carl Goldberg. Goldberg was a highly accomplished modeler with articles in Model Airplane News and famous designs that won him several National level competitions in the 1930s and beyond. (Carl Goldberg went on to found his own company and produced well designed and popular free-flight and RC aircraft). Comet survived the post World War economic slump and continued kit production until they were bought out by long-time competitor Guillow's in 1998.
