Frog DH-60G Gipsy Moth Trail Blazers Issue with Amy Johnson Figure, 1/72, F169

Plastic Model Kit,   Box Condition: Exc

Sold   

Very nicely molded kit. Includes a realistic standing figure of the famous Amy Johnson. 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.

Aurora North American F-86D Saber Jet (Sabre Dog), 1/48, 77A-89

Plastic Model Kit,   Box Condition: Good++

Sold   

This Aurora kit is dated 1956, but it is probably from 1957. It utilizes the original artwork, but the rectangle 'Aurora Line' logo has been yellowed out and the 'Famous Fighters' oval logo with a sunburst has been added. Aurora quickly transitioned away from this box art within the next year or so to a Jo Kotula painting; this artwork may have been by Jim Cox. The model was molded in gloss silver with the older style Aurora Line clear rectangular (large) stand base and arm; the decals as well are the older issue without the stand base decal. NOTE: this kit has some assembly. The fuselage halves have been glued. Quality of assembly is very high - no glue showing and no gaps. The radome has been very neatly painted black. There has been no other assembly, and the kit is complete with all parts, decals and instructions. Instructions are photocopied.

Frog Airship R-100 with Mooring Mast and Display Base, 1/500, F128

Plastic Model Kit,   Box Condition: Good++

Sold   

Rare and excellent kit. Features a colored base, large Montreal Mooring Mast and detailed airship with clear engine pods and passenger gondola. The model includes a clever set of metal rods that allows the airship to be displayed 'floating' in mid-air from the mooring mast. R-100 measures about 17 inches long. The R-100 was built by a Vickers Subsidiary. The famous Barnes Wallis worked on her design, which lead to the innovative geodesic airframe used for the Wellington and two other aircraft. The R-100 made a successful Transatlantic flight. Although there were issues, the design was sound. However, the government-built R-101 was not as soundly engineered and crashed on her maiden voyage, forever bringing an end to the Airship in the British Isles. The R-100 was sold for scrap and R-102 was never built. Never started. Factory sealed bag or inventoried 100% complete with all parts, decals and instructions.
