Strombecker Lockheed XFV-1 VTO Vertical Take-Off Fighter, 1/72, C50-89

Wood Model Kit,   Box Condition: VG

Sold   

Strombecker was famous as the premier hardwood preshaped model manufacture before plastic kits were introduced. In the 1940s and 1950s, Strombecker kits were flawlessly engineered but not inexpensive. All wooden parts are hardwood and are precarved to shape - usually only a quick sanding would finish them. This kit is hardwood with many plastic injection molded parts, so it was produced in the transition from wood to plastic. The prop hubs, spinner, tip tanks and fuselage are wood, while the wings, props, scoop and tank fins are red plastic while the canopy is injection molded in clear. Full color decals are furnished as well as a 'Join the Strombecker Model-Makers Club' brochure. The kit has never been started. It has been inventoried complete with all parts and includes decals and instructions.

Aurora Wheeler Cruiser Sports Fishing Yacht, 1/43, 444-650

Plastic Model Kit,   Box Condition: Good

Sold   

Very rare kit with great box art by Mort Kunstler. Canadian issue dated 1967, which is also the date on the USA issue. Aurora did a beautiful job on this model, but it simply did not sell and was discontinued very shortly; which may be how it ended up in Canada so quickly. The high price of $5 US ($6.50 Canadian) and the esoteric subject matter were likely to blame. Large scale kit with excellent detail. Molded in white, medium wood tan, medium blue and chrome. Includes 5 figures and a display stand. The kit has never been started. The parts that were factory sealed (white, tan, blue) are still in the sealed bags. The chrome parts were never factory sealed have been inventoried complete. Includes decals and instructions. NOTE: box has wear and stains as shown.

Frog Lavochkin La-7 Fighter, 1/72, F404

Plastic Model Kit,   Box Condition: Good-

Sold   

Last issue from the late 1970s with the final Frog logo. Very cleanly molded kit with excellent fine panel detail and no unrealistic rivets. Includes decals for USSR or Czech Air Force (Red and White National Markings). The kit has never been started. It has been inventoried complete with all parts and includes 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.
