$14

The kit has never been started. The parts are still in the internal factory sealed bags and includes decals and instructions. The box displays better than the 'good-' grade but it is rated as such because there are two closed tears on the long sides, and one extends up on the box top. There is also plenty of other general wear.

Lindberg F7U-1 Cutlass - (F7U1), 1/48, 510-98

Plastic Model Kit,   Box Condition: Exc++

$89   

1956 or '57 Gaedke artwork with three aircraft and the carrier. The box top has like new color and gloss, four solid corners, no repairs, no price tags, no fading and no litho tears. General and even light wear are the only flaws. The model is molded in a stunning, high-gloss dark blue and clear plastic and includes decals for the box art aircraft including red and white checkerboards for the rudders. Never started. Inventoried 100% complete with all parts decals and instructions. Dating early Lindberg kits is problematic to a near complete lack of release information; early catalogs normally do not have dates, and there are no dates on early boxes or instructions & decals. However, by records kept when the kits were purchased new, we know this kit was issued either in 1956 or 1957. The early part number of '10' after the 5 would support such an early date, as Lindberg initially used sequential numbers. Please note that the instructions for this kit contain multiple factory mistakes! The pilot sits on a seat, not the 'board' shown in the instructions. The pitot tube is not even shown on the assembly page, but is present with the kit.

Master Modell Antonov AN-14 Bienchen Clod - Aeroflot / Soviet Air Force / East German Air Force DDR, 1/72, 1026

Plastic Model Kit,   Box Condition: Exc+

$26   

Older but nicely molded kit of this very useful and long-lived aircraft. Features very good cockpit, full cabin with floor, seats and bulkheads (with a clear window in the cockpit bulkhead), separately molded control surface hinges, rotating wheels and propellers, optional opened or closed rear loading doors with staircase, and a paint guide & very large and extensive decals sheet for the three versions listed. The Antonov AN-14 'Little Bee' was developed to fulfill an Aeroflot need for a small, twin engined, short-ranged aircraft holding 5 to 6 passenger or 500 kg of freight for an airport to city shuttle service. The aircraft was also designed to be suitable for hire, agriculture, medical service and pilot training. Design emphasis was placed on low-maintenance, STOL performance and rough field take offs and landings. The prototype was completed in spring of 1958 and flight testing started on March 15 of the same year. After solving some typical problem, the aircraft entered series production and was very successful, fulfilling many more duties than it was ever designed for. The AN-14 was eventually phased out but replaced by the An-14M with PTL engines. At present, it's successor model, the AN-28 went into production in Poland. In 1993, PZL-Mielec developed its own improved variant, the PZL M28 Skytruck.

Revell Republic F-84F Thunderstreak Whip-Fly, 1/54, H152-98

Plastic Model Kit,   Box Condition: VG++

$69   

1960 issue of the rare 'Whip Fly' series. Hardbox artwork for this series was 'action' photos by Tom Kelly. Whip-Fly kits contain the aircraft model with nose ballast, a metal control ring, 12 feet of control line and a control handle so that you could spin the aircraft around in circles. This kit has never been started. It is either still in the internally sealed factory bag or has been inventoried 100% complete with all parts, decals and instructions. The long side of the box shows the complete Whip-Fly series with the action box art. Included are H151 F9F-8 Cougar, H152 F-84F, H153 F-89D Scorpion, H154 F8U-1 Crusader, H155 F-39 Airacobra and H156 F-101A Voodoo. Although not listed yet, there was also a Whip-Fly Canberra, F-106 and Yak-25 Flashlight. The Whip-Fly series seemed like a good idea...at first. Revell quickly realized that spinning heavily-ballasted, sharp objects at dizzying speeds in or outside the home near groups of children was not the best idea. The series was quickly discontinued.

Air Lines Airspeed Oxford Trainer - (ex Frog), 1/72, 7906

Plastic Model Kit,   Box Condition: Good-

$22   

Well molded kit features separate ailerons, rudder and elevators. The kit has never been started. Inventoried 100% complete including decals and instructions. Box art is by the famous Jo Kotula who did 1930s covers for the magazine 'Model Airplane News' and later the Aurora box art of the late 1950s. Air Lines kits are all Frog molds that the Lines Brothers imported to the USA between 1964-1966. The kits, decals and instructions were made in England, then imported to the USA where Testors created the boxes with the colorful trading cards on the back. There are two trading cards on each box which show the boxart but not the advertising/logo. Some kits contain a Testors color painting guide also, but it is not specific to any model.

Frog Junkers Ju-88A-4 - Green Series, 1/72, F160

Plastic Model Kit,   Box Condition: Exc

$34   

1960s issue with a desperate box art scene. Ground crew flee for their lives as Typhoons lob rockets into an airfield of gassed and about-to-be armed bombers. Well detailed and molded. Features 74 parts and separately molded ailerons, elevators and rudder. Never started. The parts are still in the internal factory sealed bags 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.
