Frog Bristol Beaufighter NF1/F6C/TF10 - 604 Sq F/Lt. Cunningham (14 kills) / Coastal Command 235 Sq / 227 Sq Malta 1942 P/O Schmidt - Green Series, 1/72, F191

Plastic Model Kit,   Box Condition: VG++

Sold   

Has parts and markings for all three version including the night fighter ace John Cunningham. This kit has never been started. The actual aircraft has been inventoried complete and includes decals and instructions but NOTE: missing the display stand. 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 Fokker D-VIII Flying Razor, 1/48, 135-69

Plastic Model Kit,   Box Condition: VG++

Sold   

First issue from 1959 with fantastic Jo Kotula artwork, FF logo and Parents' Magazine Seal on the lower right. A nice kit of the dreaded 'Flying Razor' of WWI. Molded in a beautiful metallic high-gloss green and black plastics. Never started. Inventoried 100% complete with all parts, decals and instructions. Please note that this box exists in two versions; one with the PM seal at the extreme lower right and one with it an inch or so to the left. The Fokker D-VIII was a great performer but it came too late to change the tide of the air war. It started life as the Fokker E.V, one of the first warplanes to have the cantilever wing. This advancement was the result of a long-term Fokker project to perfect this technology. In addition to greatly reducing drag, a properly built cantilever wing is very light and strong. This wing was first used on prototype V17 and then on V28 which took part in the Second Fight Competition (July 6-14 1918) where the most experienced German front line pilots chose new fighters for late war service. V28 was chosen for it's excellent flying properties and 200 of the production aircraft, known as the Fokker E.V, were ordered. Over 289 aircraft were delivery. The E.V began front line service on August 5, 1918; Lt. Emil Rolff of Jasta 6 reported an aerial victory on August 17. However, the day before, an E.V suffered catastrophic wing failure. Two days later, the same failure cost Lt. Rolff his life. All E.Vs were immediately grounded. A detailed investigation showed that there were fatal defects in the wing assembly caused by slack manufacturing processes. Although it was not his fault, Fokker took this opportunity to re-design and strengthen the wing. Existing E.V aircraft received new wings and newly built aircraft were designated D.VIII. Modified aircraft made it back to the front in November, too late for service. However, the aircraft saw active service after that war with the Freikorps air units, the Polish Air Force against Russia, the Dutch Air Force and an unspecified number went to France and the USA.

Lindberg 1961 Chevrolet Impala SS 409, 1/25, 72163

Plastic Model Kit,   Box Condition: Sealed NM

Sold   

Still factory sealed. The 1961 Chevy 409 is the car that everyone heard about but hardly anyone saw. Only 142 409 CID engines were produced in 1961. Popularized by the Beach Boy's song and numerous race wins, it is counted as one of the first muscle cars since it has a high displacement engine in a (relatively) light weight body. The 409 was a late-year production option intended to replace (and correct the faults) of the 348 V-8. Although it looked like a "W" block 348, it was not and differed internally and by casting numbers. Because of the late roll-out and the delay in obtaining the desired cylinder heads, many '61 409s were sent out the factory door with the high performance 348 cylinder heads (from the 3x2 carb configuration. It worked well, but as a result few '61 409s ended up with the intended heads. Not all '61 409s were SS (Super Sport) models. There were about 453 SS kits made vs. 142 409s. Some SSs were factory installed but many are thought to be dealer installed; they were mainly put on the 2DR HT, but a SS Convertible was found in a junkyard back in the early 1990s and documented to be original (shockingly, it has the original 409 in it also). 1961 409 attrition was severe, as many if not most were raced. Although a good engine, it was far from perfect and that did not help. It is believed that 6 remain of the 142 made. The block was altered for the '62 409 and new casting numbers were used, making the '61 409 castings and numbers unique to that year. The actual kit is from 1996 and one of Lindberg's finest efforts. Very well detailed and features a full 409 engine with correct factory fuel set up (4 bbl and dual snorkel air clearer), correct Muncie four speed manual transmission, good engine compartment detail, opening hood with scale hinges, detailed chassis with separately molded springs, front and rear suspension, drive shaft and complete exhaust, full interior with the correct 4 speed 61-only shifter plate, separately molded chrome door handles, fender ornaments, windshield wipers, SS spinners and an extensive decal set that covers from the valve covers to the speedometer and individual instrument faces. Molded in white, clear, red-tint clear, chrome plate and with rubber tires.
