Frog Avro Lancaster Heavy Bomber, 1/96, 359P

Plastic Model Kit,   Box Condition: Good-

$65   

Very rare 1950s issue. Features clear turrets and canopy, rotating propellers & wheel, paint guide and decals for Lancaster WPF or VNN. Includes the correct large format display stand and glue capsule. Never started and inventoried complete with all parts, decals and instructions. Decals and instructions are in amazing 'excellent++' condition. NOTE: as is typical with these kits, the glue capsule burst and melted one short section of of one lower landing strut. While all four propeller are present, one propeller blade was melted completely away. I have included another early black plastic propeller that has only slightly larger blades; it could be used to fabricate a replacement blade if you wish. The box is 100% complete and solid with four original corners, no tears, missing litho, price tags or tape (other than age marks from the original factory sealing tape). However, it has been darkened as shown.

Hornets from 80 Squadron Kai Tak (not depicted in the Frog kit decals) are scrambled and the first to locate the survivors. Two days later, 7th Fleet AD-1s splash two Lavochkins in the same area.

Frog Douglas B-26B Invader, 1/122, 385P

Plastic Model Kit,   Box Condition: Good

$60   

From about 1957. Rare first logo Frog kit in a small scale. Molded in silver and clear with all recessed panel lines, full decals and correct early display stand. 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, 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.
