Heller THREE Yak-9 Normandie-Niemen / THREE Polikarpov I-153, 1/72, L090

Plastic Model Kit,   Box Condition: VG

$24   

SALE!! Includes all 6 kits in the two boxes shown. NOTE: Sold AS-IS and not inventoried. This collector was very meticulous and of his kits that I did inventory, 95% are complete. But on these kits he cut the sprue (trees) with the part numbers still attached to each number, so the parts are loose. Because of that, I have not inventoried these kits. NOTE: he built minor sub assemblies (cockpit tubs, wing halves, etc) to 'professional' quality. He also almost always removed the displays stands (if provided). Again, these kits are sold not inventoried and AS IS hence the very low price. Early Heller 'L' issues with wonderful, full box artwork. From the mid 1960s.

Revell Junkers Ju-88 Mistel ONLY, 1/72, H113-130

Plastic Model Kit,   Box Condition: Exc

$18   

NOTE: this kit is a Mistel conversion partially done to 'professional' quality. The base kit is the Revell model as shown and the conversion is the resin one from Airmodel. The fuselage is done with the Mistel nose, engines are assembled, the wing halves are assembled and the nacelle and wheels halves are assembled. The braces and scissors are assembled to the struts. In other words, all the major sub-assemblies are done but are still loose, i.e. not glued to each other. It has been inventoried complete with all parts and includes decals and instructions. The special Mistel struts for the fighter aircraft are included as well as the the Airmodel instructions.

Frog Supermarine S-6B (S.6B) Floatplane - Trail Blazers Issue, 1/72, F164

Plastic Model Kit,   Box Condition: Good+

$34   

From the 1960s and a finely molded model kit for that time. This box has artwork from the famous Jo Kotula, who did much of the artwork for Aurora and Air Lines. This kit has never been started. 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.
