Plastic Model Kit,   Box Condition: Good+

$29   

Hard-to-find 1970s 'Spin' version. This kit contains the extra parts required to accept the Frog F20 Spin-a-prop motorizing kit (not included). Nicely molded kit with no rivets for a realistic model when built. Has load-out and markings for the two aircraft listed. The kit has never been started. The actual airplane has been inventoried complete with all parts and includes decals and instructions. 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, 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.

Yellow Cat Japanese Navy Particular Type 2 Motor Launch Ka-mi Late, 1/35, 35024

Resin Model Kit,   Box Condition: Exc

$119   

Very, very rare and highly detailed model cast in high definition resin. Never started. The parts are still in the internal factory sealed bags and includes instructions. The Special Type 2 Launch Ka-Mi (Toku-ni-shiki uchibitei kami) was the first amphibious tank of the Imperial Japanese Navy (IJN) in WWII. However, too few were produced too late for it to have an impact. The Ka-Mi was designed, initially, to assault islands. However, by the time it entered service, the Japanese forces were already on the defensive. They were used for infantry support, sometimes as moving pillboxes. Three formed the 1st Yokosuka Special Naval Landing Force based at Saipan, while two saw action in Leyte in 1944. They were affected to various naval garrison detachments in the Southern Pacific and East Indies. The USMC encountered the Ka-Mi when assaulting the Marianna and Marshall islands, at Guam, Aitape and Biak in New Guinea, and during the invasion of Leyte. Some sources claim that, off the coast of Leyte, USMC LVTs attacked and destroyed some Ka-Mis. Two survived to this day at the Kubinka Museum and on Palau island.

Sterling British SE-5 Scout - With Profile Book And Williams Bros Wheels And Machine Gun - 40 Inch Wingspan Scale RC Airplane, FS-22

Wood Model Kit,   Box Condition: VG

$195   

Includes the following aftermarket parts: Williams Brothers #131 3 3/4 Inch Wheel Set (hollow rubber tires and plastic solid wheels), Williams Brothers #161 2" Scale (1/6 scale) Lewis Machine Gun .30 Cal plastic kit (still factory sealed) and Profile Publications Number 1 The SE5A in very good condition. The actual kit is a very large full-scale model- even the rib spacing in the wings and tail is correct to the original, as is the stringer spacing of the fuselage. The only exception to scale is the modern airfoil cross section. Designed for R/C or control line with a .19 to .29 gas engine and measures 30.5 inches long with a 40 3/8 inch wingspan. Highly detailed. Features all die-cut sheet wood parts of very high quality balsa, numerous plastic details and metal radiator parts, wood and metal stock as needed, dowels, blocks and cut to shape wood, a great deal of hardware, three huge full color decal sheets and superb full size plans with instructions on them. The kit has never been started. It has been inventoried complete with all parts and includes decals and instructions. Sterling was a famous manufacturer dating back to the 1930/40s flying model craze. Although they continued to produce kits for decades after the flying model slump following World War II, they eventually fell victim to the general lack of interest in modeling that occurred in the early 1980s. I personally considered Sterlings to be 'deluxe' kits.

Dr Zooch Saturn 1 - Flying Model Rocket, SA-5

Multimedia Model Kit,   Box Condition: Exc

$65   

Out of production. Dr. Zooch was famous for making very good looking flying rockets that didn't cost and arm and a leg while still covering fascinating subjects that no other manufacture dared to do. The Saturn 1 is what he called 'Ant Scale' which means it is roughly 9 or 10 inches tall. Very nicely detailed for that size and a very complete model kit. Never started. The small parts are still in the factory sealed bags; the larger parts have been inventoried complete. Includes color body wraps and excellent, detailed instructions.

Aurora SE-5 Scout, 1/48, 103-69

Plastic Model Kit,   Box Condition: VG

$55   

First issue from 1956 with Northern Lights logo. This logo only appeared for one year. In 1957 it was replaced with the famous oval 'Famous Fighters' Sunburst logo. The artwork is by Jim Cox. This kit was one of a very famous line of 1/48 scale WWI aircraft kits introduced by Aurora at this time. Due to the popularity, subjects were still being released into the 1960s. Molded in glossy olive green and black. Inventoried 100% complete with all parts, decals and instructions.

Aurora Nieuport II French Fighter, 1/48, 101-100

Plastic Model Kit,   Box Condition: VG

$39   

Dated 1956, but this is a 1960s issue with the later John Steel artwork and blue oval 'Aurora' logo with no 'Famous Fighters'. Never started. Inventoried 100% complete with all parts, decals and instructions. This is part of the famous Aurora WWI series of 1/48 scale aircraft. The series began in 1956 and Aurora added new kits into the early 1960s. The line proved incredibly popular, so these kits were included in the 'mold upgrade' in the 1970s before Aurora went out of business.

Aurora Sopwith Camel, 1/47, 102-79

Plastic Model Kit,   Box Condition: Exc

$54   

Rare early 1960s issue and harder to find than the original 1956 release. This was only made for a year or two before the new artwork release. Please note the full, original artwork (the only issue with such) due to the 'transparent' new simplified oval logo at the lower right. The side logos still have the old 'Famous Fighters' in the border. Molded in the correct gloss olive drab and black plastic and with the chock ground base and pilot & mechanic figures. Never started. Inventoried 100% complete with all parts decals and instructions.
