Frog Miles Magister 1 Trainer - Blue Series, 1/72, 153P

Plastic Model Kit,   Box Condition: Good++

$28   

Finely molded in dark yellow. 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.

Jo-Han 1956 Plymouth Belvedere Front Bumper / Rear Bumper / Four Wheels - Promo - Bagged, 1/25

Plastic Model Kit,   Box Condition: Exc

$18   

Includes the chrome plated parts shown in the photo. The chrome plating is in 'near mint' condition with only very slight and small flaws. These are from the original Jo-Han molds but are likely reproductions made in the 1990s. They came with a collection of promo bodies, windshields and chrome parts. I am 99% sure that these parts will also work on the Jo-Han model kit (and not just the promo).

Revell F-4EJ Phantom II - Japan JSDF Issue, 1/32, H3001-2500

Never started and the parts are still in the internal factory sealed bags and includes decals and instructions. NOTE: the decals were once stuck to the large fold-out color illustration. As a result the decals are only 'fair.' Most of the damage is between the transfers, but there is some damage on some of the smaller decals also. There is certainly enough there to make a new sheet using the instructions located on this website on how to save and reproduce old decals. The large foldout color guide is damaged on the front 1/2 as well.

From the original Aurora molds. The I-19 is famous for firing history's most successful torpedo spread off Guadalcanal. On September 14, 1942, I-19 was patrolling of the Solomons when the crew made visual contact with American forces. After working into position, she fired a 6 torpedo spread; three hit and sank the US Carrier CV-7 Wasp and the remaining three exploded against the BB North Carolina and the destroyer O'Brien. The destroyer sank and the North Carolina was under repair until November 16, 1942. The I-19's Glen seaplane also flew night reconnaissance on February 23, 1942 over Pearl Harbor for the planned second attack by Emily flying boats on that base. She was depth-charged and sunk by DD-446 Radford on 11.25.43, off Makin Island. This large scale kit is almost 16 inches long when assembled. It is an excellent model for that time from Aurora's improved quality and detail efforts of the late 1960s/early 1970s. Aurora knew that the older kits were outclassed and cut a new series of better molds including several ships, helos and subs. The result was higher mold quality and very good detail, such as this kit. Features full hull with excellent molded detail, deck with proper molded-in wood planking, complete propeller & rudder detail, periscope and cranes, Glen seaplane, conning tower, deck guns and more. Includes a display stand. The kit has never been started. It has been inventoried and includes all plastic parts and photocopied instructions. NOTE: missing decal and the original instructions.
