Ideal Aeroplane & Supply USS Alexander Hamilton Revenue Cutter - 22 Inch Hull Wooden Ship Model

Wood and Metal Model Kit,   Box Condition: Fair

Sold   

Wood and metal kit from 1947. Completed model measures 22 inches long. NOTE: This is a builder kit only. It is not a collector kit. It has been started. The precarved balsa hull has been completed. Quality of the work is excellent. The hull is ready to seal and paint. 90% of the printwood parts have been cut out. Only the main deck was cut out neatly - the quality of the remaining work is fair to poor. Some parts were not cut straight and cuts extend inside the outlines. Some parts were glued then removed, and some of them broke. Several small parts are missing like one trailboard, skylight, one cabin side, one door and perhaps more. Luckily they can all be made from sheet balsa. It will take a talented and intrepid modeler who is not afraid of scratch building to complete this kit! Includes all of the round stock for masts, yards and square stock as well. I believe the metal fittings are complete - they include two whale boats, one lifeboat, two inclined ladders (stairs), two ships wheels, two eyelets and 6 cannon. The original running rigging thread is present and the full size plans are complete, readable and completely useable but only in 'good' condition. The Alexander Hamilton was a beautiful revenue cutter in service from 1871 to 1906. She took part in the Spanish-American War as part of the Havana harbor blockade fleet. After her service, she was sold to a private individual in 1906.

Plastic Model Kit,   Box Condition: VG

Nicely done kit with 67 parts. Includes decals for both historic aircraft and a color painting guide as well. This kit has not been started. The aircraft parts are inventoried 100% complete with all 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.
