Plastic Model Kit,   Box Condition: VG

$20   

Late 1970s final logo issue. Includes parts and decals to make either version/aircraft. Excellent full color painting guide is located on the bottom of the box. Typical high quality Frog kit with fine panel lines and no rivet detail so it builds up to a realistic model. This kit has not been started. NOTE: missing display stand. Otherwise inventoried with all airplane 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.

Hawk Supermarine Swift, 1/72, 607-60

Plastic Model Kit,   Box Condition: Sealed VG++

$28   

Still factory sealed but the seal has split. Very cleanly molded kit that builds very nicely. The model has excellent fit and recessed and raised panel lines. Can be assembled with or without landing gear. The Swift was a very early jet fighter to replace the Supermarine Attacker. A very capable aircraft, the Swift suffered numerous accidents early on. As a result, less than 200 were ever built and it did not see combat. It did hold a world speed record for a short time, only to have a Douglas Skyray take the record a few hours later. The problems were ironed out, but by then the Hawker Hunter was proving very capable and there was no need for the Swift and it's RAF service life was short. The most successful version was the PR variant.

Inside, the kit is as it left the factory. It is molded in dark green, black and clear and all parts and decals are still sealed in the factory bag. Even includes the original glue. Complete with instructions, which are also excellent.

O-lin North American F-86 Jet Fighter, 1/48, 505

Plastic Model Kit,   Box Condition: Good+

$55   

Very rare kit for the advanced collector. This is a very hard-to-fine original O-line kit in the small box and advertisement for O-line cement on the side. Produced in 1949 or just before. The box has excellent color but general wear as shown. The kit is molded in the correct off white with a red nose piece and clear canopy. It has never been started. NOTE: the kit is missing the stand base. Otherwise inventoried with all other parts, decals, decal instructions and other factory paperwork present. The instructions are on the back of the box and are in VG condition. One drop tank fin has broken cleanly away but is present. O-Lin (Olin) was founded by Paul Lindberg and a Mr. Olsen - hence the company name. Although a producer of flying models in the 1930s, O-line produced some of the earliest American injection molded kits in the late 1940s. In 1950 the partnership may have ended, because all branding was changed to Lindberg and Paul Lindberg. To learn more about the first American Plastic Kits, please see the article on this website. Thanks to Dusty Rhodes, here is some information on the real airplane from the box art of this kit: "F-86A-1-NA s/n 47-617: 1/18/1949 First flight. 1/1949: Used for cold weather tests in Alaska. 1949: USAF 3200th PTG.3/30/1949: Crashed near Whitehall, MT.

Strombecker Temco TT-1 Navy Primary Trainer, 1/48, D36-100

Plastic Model Kit,   Box Condition: Good+

Rare kit in good condition. The notoriously thin Strombecker box was preserved with very good color and four solid corners. This model was unique in that a customer could lift the hinged, full-color 'Pin-Up' artwork to view the kit inside. The kit was (originally) sealed with a clear cellophane panel glued to the inside of the box lid. The inner cellophane is intact. Nicely molded kit with recessed panel lines and very complete decals. Features crew, ejection seats, instrument side and main panel detail, opening canopy and optional position landing gear. Never started. Inventoried 100% complete with all parts, decals and instructions. Strombecker was most famous for making the finest in wooden kits. During the short time that they made wooden kits, they released many interesting subjects that are desirable today.

$24   

Very high quality cast resin kit. Includes all necessary parts and instructions. The kit has never been started. The parts are still in the internal factory sealed bags and includes instructions.

The RFC version is the one modeled. Includes painting color information. Please note that some small parts were not included by Roseplane; you will need to supply these from your spares box. For example, I see all major airframe parts included but do not see any cockpit or prop.
