Heller Etendard IV Type M, 1/50, L500

Plastic Model Kit,   Box Condition: Exc++

Sold   

Large 1/50 scale Etendard IV. Nicely molded older kit featuring fine raised panel detail, cockpit, folding wings, working arresting gear, optional position landing gear and speed brakes and real rubber tires. Includes drop tanks and underwing weapons as well. This is the second issue of the very rare 'operating kit' of the Etendard IV. The original issue had automatic speed brakes and retractable landing gear. The model used a complex series of 6 cogs and gears with wire springs and twine to make functioning landing gear and speed brakes. When you lowered the arresting (tail) hook, the landing gear doors opened and the nose and main wheels extended. When you raised the arresting hook, the landing gear retracted and the doors closed. Furthermore, when you pulled out the parachute release at the tail, the speed brakes lowered. When you closed it, the speed brakes closed. Please note that although this model is from those molds, it does not have those action features - only the ones that I listed. This kit has never been started. It is either still in the internally sealed factory bag or has been inventoried 100% complete with all parts, decals and instructions.

The kit has never been started. Inventoried 100% complete including decals and instructions. Please note that the box would grade higher but is given a 'very good' rating because there is a small tape tear on the litho on the upper long side.

Frog Dornier Do-335 A-6 Night Fighter or A-12 Trainer - Luftwaffe or RAF Captured, 1/72, F235

Plastic Model Kit,   Box Condition: Good-

Sold   

Final logo issue from the late 1970s just before Frog ceased production. Nicely molded kit contains parts and decals for both versions. This kit has never been started. The aircraft has been inventoried complete with all parts, decals and instructions but NOTE: missing 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, 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.

Inventoried 100% complete including instructions. In the early to mid 1960s the Pyro company chose many kit subjects based on historical significance instead of popularity.

Silva Jr of the Silva Auto Engineering Shop in Massachusetts.

Gowland & Gowland Bonne Homme Richard - Shipyard Ships in Miniature

Plastic Model Kit,   Box Condition: VG+

Sold   

Rare early ship kit from 1952. Very nicely detailed and molded, especially for that era. Includes sails, molded base and clear sheet plastic with the ratlines printed on them to simplify assembly. The box sides illustrates and names the 10 kits of this line. All were available in regular (such as this kit) or 'Ship In A Bottle' versions. This kit has never been started and is still sealed in the original 'krinkle' bag. It appears that Gowland & Gowland has not received the credit that it deserves in the plastic kit revolution that took America by storm in the early 1950s. Gowland developed the first all plastic car made in the USA in 1950, the 1911 Maxwell. Even more interesting is that Kevin and Jack Gowland developed the 'Highway Pioneers' in 1951 which heralded the future for the American Hobby Industry. The reason that Gowland's name is not in the fore-front of model history is that Precision Specialties (later Revell) did the distribution for Gowland. The Shipyard in Miniature contains 9 ships total: Bon Homme Richard, Constitution, Revenue cutter, the Savannah, Flying Cloud, Gertrude L. Thebaud, Golden Hind, Mayflower and Santa Maria.
