Revell Western Figures Set - Miniature Masterpiece, 1/48, H509-98

Plastic Model Kit,   Box Condition: NM

Sold   

Rare early Revell kit from 1955 that is in amazing, investment-grade 'near mint' condition. Very well molded and detailed model containing everything you need for the western diorama as shown on the box top: nine animals, six cowboys, fence, saddle, pail, packs, rifle, skull, wagon wheel and more. Never started. The parts are still in the internal factory sealed 'krinkle' bag and includes instructions. 'Miniature Masterpieces' was formed through an alliance of Lew Glasser (Revell) and Steve Adams (Adams Action Models) in 1953. Although the molds were made at Adams and it had the appearance of an independent company, the firm was run by Revell down to the prototypes being made at the Revell plant. Originally there was no evidence of the parent company on the surface. The State Coach of England was the first kit, 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.

MPM Fairey Battle Tmk.I Trainer - RCAF Royal Canadian Air Force Kingston Ontario / Polish Flying Service Training School Hucknall 1941, 1/72, 72096

Plastic Model Kit,   Box Condition: VG

Sold   

A very nice kit of a rare subject. The Fairey Battle may have been state-of-the-art in 1936, but by the onset of WWII it was badly outclassed in every way. Losses were so high that by mid/late 1940 they were all but completely withdrawn from front-line service. However, there was a need for training and 100 Battles were built as dual-control trainers with separate cockpits. Another 266 target towing variants were also supplied. This is a very nice kit will all fine recessed panel lines, superb resin cockpits, detailed gear wells and more. Includes paint guide and decals for both aircraft listed. Never started. The parts are still in the internal factory sealed bags and includes decals and instructions.

Inventoried 100% complete with all parts, 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.
