$34

Monogram Boeing 727 TWA - (ex Aurora), 1/96, 5414

Plastic Model Kit,   Box Condition: Fair

$28   

1978 issue after Monogram bought and modified the Aurora molds. Monogram only reissued the best and most commercially viable models. In this case, they saw the molds could be improved and did so. The result is a much better and accurate kit, the best 'short' body 727 available in near 1/100 scale. Monogram added a network of very fine raised panel lines to the fuselage (the original had no panel lines), filled the deep e-doors over the wings and made them fine raised also, added wing fences and fine raised panel lines to the wings, added flap hinges to the wing undersides and added fine raised panel lines to the horizontal stabilizers. Monogram was evidently proud of the improvement, and even shows them on the assembly drawings. With full landing gear. Includes TWA full stripes and window decals. This kit has not been started. Inventoried and NOTE: missing clear cockpit windows. Otherwise complete with all other parts. Includes decals and instructions. NOTE: decals are damaged. There is enough left that you could restore them using the procedure outlined in the two articles on this website about how to save old decals. If not, you will need to provide your own decals.

Plastic Model Kit,   Box Condition: Fair+

$24   

Fujimi Mokei issue most likely from the very late 1960s or early 1970s. This is a quality model for that time featuring very fine raised panel detail, two pilots and decals for all three aircraft including the unique "1000th Production T-38A Talon." Never started. The parts are still in the internal factory sealed bags and includes decals and instructions. NOTE: decals are stuck fast to the back of the color painting guide. They will not be good, so be prepared to provide your own decals.

$28   

1970 final log issue is nicely detailed and molded featuring fine raised surface detail, no rivets, crew of three, optional position landing gear, two wing pylons with bombs, separately molded ailerons, elevators & rudder and more. Incluces decals for the two different aircraft listed and a 3 view color painting guide on the back of the box. This kit has never been started. It is still in the internally sealed factory bag with 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.

Monogram AC-47 Puff The Magic Dragon with Factory Camouflage Paint - Blue Box Issue, 1/90, PA148-150

Plastic Model Kit,   Box Condition: Fair

$34   

1966 issue with rare factory airbrushed camouflage paint and Tom Morgan boxart. Camouflage paint is in excellent condition. This kit has no assembly but NOTE: The lower intakes (on the bottom wing) are neatly painted black and the underside of the aft-most section of the rear fuselage is neatly airbrushed light gray. This is some overspray on the rudder, which can be removed with plastic polish (I recommend Novus brand, available on-line). There is no other painting. Inventoried 100% complete with all parts, decals and instructions.

Comet USS Gridley DD380 Destroyer, J6

Wood Model Kit,   Box Condition: Good+

Late 1930s or early 1945 issue. Almost everyone has heard of the Comet flying aircraft kits that boys and men built from stick and tissue, but few know that Comet had a line of ships also.

Also includes two sheets of printwood, solid, long balsa blocks for the superstructure, mast and gun barrel material, rigging material, decals and full size plans.

The decals are in amazing 'excellent++' condition and were not issued with the wartime kits. The large sheet includes the correctly-shaded hull numbers, hull portholes, superstructure square windows and even doors. The kit has never been started.
