Plastic Model Kit,   Box Condition: VG

$26   

Nicely molded, quality Frog kit - no rivets, just fine panel lines for a realistic model. Features separately molded ailerons, elevators and rudder. Decals and paint guide for both the RAAF and RCAF aircraft are included. Never 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, 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.

Dolphin Scire Submarine - Gibralter and Alexandria Assault Version - Adua Class 600 Italian Navy, 1/400, 003

Resin Model Kit,   Box Condition: Sealed NM

$74   

Still factory sealed. Very rare. Dolphin made the only kit of Italy's most renowned submarine, famous for the amazing attacks in Gibraltar and Alexandria harbors using 'Chariots.' This is a resin, metal and PE model kit of the attack version. And thanks to Dusty Rhodes who wrote that Scire was lost to depth charge attack by HMT Islay, and shore battery gunfire, in Haifa Bay, 10 August 1942. In 1984, a joint Italian-Israeli team recovered a hull section and artifacts, which were shipped to Italy and incorporated in a memorial to the boat and her crew. The Gibraltar operation is interestingly depicted, with a degree of artistic license, in the 1959 docudrama film, The Silent Enemy.

'Miniature Masterpieces' was formed through an alliance of Lew Glasser (Revell) and Steve Adams (Adams Action Models) in 1953.

Originally there was no evidence of the parent company on the surface. The State Coach of England was the first kit - without figures and horses, issued in 1953. More kits of excellent quality followed. Revell completely took over the line in 1954 and in that year and the next, kits were labeled 'Revell' with a 'Miniature Masterpiece' label on the box top also. 1954 advertisements from Revell list the complete line as the H506 State Coach of England, H510 Ranch Wagon, H503 Covered Wagon, H502 Marquis de Lafayette Carriage, H504 Roman Racing Chariot, H501 Wells Fargo Stage Coach, H509 Western Figures and H507 Chuck Wagon.
