Frog North American OV-10A Bronco - Tri-Service 6th Pre-Production Aircraft / USAF 4410th Combat Crew Training Wing Elgin AFB - (Frog-Hasegawa), 1/72, F265

Plastic Model Kit,   Box Condition: Good

$18   

Rare Frog-marketed Hasegawa kit from the 1970s. Well detailed and includes a full color painting guide (on the back of the box) and decals for both versions. Never started and the parts are still in the internal factory sealed bags and includes decals and instructions. While the box is rough, the kit inside and all paperwork is fine.

Frog Blackburn Skua Dive Bomber - Red Series, 1/72, F162

Plastic Model Kit,   Box Condition: VG

$30   

This is a Frog 'Red Series' issue with very colorful box artwork. It is finely molded in medium gray and features separately molded ailerons, elevators and rudder. This kit has never been started. Never started and inventoried complete with all parts and includes decals and instructions. The box would rate higher than 'very good' but has short pieces of masking tape on the lower part of three sides. 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.

Frog Douglas DC-7C BOAC, 1/96, 351P

Plastic Model Kit,   Box Condition: Exc+

$395   

Very rare. 1950s two piece hardbox issue. Very close to 1/100 scale and still the largest injection molded DC-7 kit. Nicely molded with very fine raised panel line detail and recessed control surfaces and doors. The box has great color, no stains, no rips, 3 solid corners and 1 closed split side corner and very minor general wear only. Inside, the special cardboard side housing is still held in place with the original staples and contains an unopened green capsule of cement and a glass vial of white paint with the factory cork. The paint is still a liquid - it has not turned solid. The very long decal sheet is intact and near mint. The decals have not rolled and are in excellent condition - they have very little of the typical yellowing. The instructions are excellent with light yellowing and have no tears or writing. The kit is molded in the correct gloss silver and clear plastic with a large dark blue stand. The kit has never been started and has been inventoried complete with all parts, decals, instructions, glue and paint. The propellers are on the original cardboard holder and the blades are not broken. Shipping insurance is required on this model.
