Roseplane Martinsyde G.102 Elephant (G-102), 1/72, R301

Vacuform Model Kit,   Box Condition: Fair

Sold   

272 G100 and F102 Elephants were produced. Originally designed as a fighter, they served during WWI on the Western Front, Palestine (as an Australian Squadron) and in Mesopotamia.

They were phased out of combat in 1917, and the last one left service in 1919. Very highly detailed moldings with full interior. Includes metal details, strut material and full decals. Never started. Factory sealed bag or inventoried 100% complete with all parts, decals and instructions.

Plastic Model Kit,   Box Condition: Good

This kit has never been started. It is either still in the internally sealed factory bag or has been inventoried 100% complete with all parts, 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, 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.

Hasegawa General Dynamics (Convair) F-102A Delta Dagger - BAGGED, 1/72, JS-047

Plastic Model Kit,   Box Condition: No Box

Sold   

Bagged kit with no box. Box is shown for reference only. Has decals for the 68th FS (box art) and colorful 32nd FS. Features opened or closed missile bay, full Falcon missile load, optional position landing gear and wing mounted drop tanks. Never started. Factory sealed bag or 100% inventoried with all parts/decals and instructions present. When designed in 1950 the F-102 was a radical departure from conventional early jet fighter design. The delta wing allowed supersonic performance and good low speed handling. It was the first US Aircraft to be armed with missiles alone, 6 Falcons carried internally and 12 x 2.75 inch HVAR rockets in the weapons bay doors. The F-102 equipped all 25 of the ADC squadrons in the day, served in SE Asia and equipped many ANG units.

Unknown Imperator Four Screw Ocean Liner of the Hamburg American Line, 1/200, 312-326

Cardstock Paper Model Kit,   Box Condition: Exc

Sold   

During the rush for the biggest and best ocean liners in the early 1900, Dr. Albert Ballin, the director of HAPAG, knew that he could not compete with the Mauritania and Lusitania for the Blu Riband. But he knew that he could make the largest and most luxurious ships afloat. The result were the three German Superliners for the Hamburg-Amerika Line. The first was Imperator. The launch of the Imperator took place on May 23, 1912 from Vulcan Shipyards. She was the largest ship in the world in length and tonnage, far more than the Titanic. After fitting out, the sleek and beautiful ship entered service. She did sail before World War One, but was in New York when the hostilities broke out. The Germans decided that it would be safe to keep her there. This ultimately cost them the ship. When the US entered the war, they seized the ship. After the hostilities, they renamed it USS Imperator and used it to ferry troops back across the Atlantic. Ultimately, the Imperator was given to the British to replace the lost Cunard Liner Lusitania. The Imperator was renamed Berengaria by Cunard. Ironically, the Berengarias new running mates were Mauretania and the Aquitania, her previous peace-time foes. The three ships provided splendid and popular service - they soon became known as The Big Three. These were the glory days of the North Atlantic Ocean Liners. But things changed when the 1931 Stock Market crash hit. Many people simply did not have enough money. The Berengaria cut prices and went on "Booze Cruises" for thirsty Americans during Prohibition. She became known as the "Bargain-Area". Furthermore, her age was showing. She remained Cunard flagship till 1934, when White Star and Cunard combined. At this point she sailed briefly with another of Ballin's 3 Giants, the Majestic, which was originally built as her sister ship Bismarck. Majestic, being slightly larger and in better condition, became flagship. When the Queen Mary was built, there was little use for the Berengaria and her expensive upkeep issues. She was scrapped in 1938. This is a all card-stock model kit and is a reproduction of the original model. All sheets have been reprinted on matching 90lb cardstock (as per the original) using the highest photographic reproduction possible. The model is 1/200 scale and would be just over 4 feet (1.2 meters) when assembled. I believe the original model was from 1911-1912 as she has the original configuration for only 32 life boats; after the Titanic disaster in April of 1912 she was modified to carry 80 lifeboats. The original model was made in Germany and was drawn by Bruno Holz. The drawings are of high quality and in full color. It can be built as a waterline model or full hull. There are 15 original sheets to the model. When the sheets were copied, great care was taken to make sure that no parts were cut off; as a result, you get many extra parts. All parts are labeled as to their number and that number is repeated again where the part should be glued. Factory notes on construction are written in German, French and English. There are no formal instruction sheet.
