Carl Goldberg Models Ranger 28 - 28 inch Wingspan Flying Aircraft, D5-129

Wood Model Kit,   Box Condition: Good+

Sold   

Purchased new on March 3, 1966 at National Hobby Inc at 4526 Lorain Ave, Cleveland, OH. Quality rubber powered flying model with stick and tissue construction. Features die-cut balsa wood sheet parts, stripwood and spars, die-cut clear window material, light plastic nose cowl, plastic prop, rubber motor, fully finished wheels, plastic thrust button, formed wire gear struts, other wood stock as required, decals, tissue, full size plans and superb instructions. Never started and inventoried complete. Carl Goldberg was a gifted designer of model aircraft, and his career spanned the evolution of flying models. His designs and number of titles won in competition at the Nationals is legendary. His first competition was the 1928 Nationals, where he received honorable mention. By 1934 he won the indoor Nats and in 1935 he opened a Hobby Shop, among the first in the nation (the first one was probably opened by Cleveland Models Ed Packard). Awards came quickly. He wrote articles for Model Airplane News, and was Comet's top designer from 1939 till 1945. After Comet, he worked with Mike Schlesinger and Sid Axelrod on what eventually became Top-Flite Models. In 1955 he founded Carl Goldberg Models and released a still-popular line of scale, rubber, gas, glider and RC models. Needless to say, Goldberg's models are of the highest quality.

Frog Handley Page Victor B.1. Crescent Wing 'V Force' Bomber With Frog Glue, 1/96, 355P

Plastic Model Kit,   Box Condition: VG

Sold   

Rare. Classic 1950s Frog kit in large 1/96 scale of this famous 'V Force' Bomber. The box displays 'Very Good' with great colors, four solid corners and no repairs. Flaws include a closed 1.25" tear on one side, a scuff right on the edge at the right side and general, even wear as shown. Nicely molded for that time with all recessed pane lines and full landing gear that can be installed up or retracted. The kit is molded in off-white and clear with the large, black Frog stand that was unique to the bigger kits. The decals are in 'excellent' condition but curled. Even the clear wax paper covering is intact. Instructions are in 'excellent++' condition. There is even an unopened tube of FROG Polystyrene Cement! The kit has never been started. Inventoried 100% complete including 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.
