727G-K Frog Slingsby Skylark Lightweight Flying Sailplane Model Kit
Wood Model Kit, Box Condition: Exc++
FROG is famous for creating the very first injection molded plastic models just before WWII. Before this, FROG (International Model Aircraft, Ltd.) was very well known for it's stick and tissue gliders and rubber-powered models. FROG actually stood for 'Flies Right Off the Ground' - in American competition, 'ROG' was actually a category in completion during the 1930s - the model had to 'Rise Off the Ground' on it's own. Frog even had a line of pre-fabricated rubber powered aircraft that could be flown right out of the box. The box cleverly incorporated a winding device. This model is a stick and tissue glider kit with a 27 inch wingspan. Includes a vac canopy. The model has not been started. The parts are either in factory sealed bag(s) or inventoried 100% complete with all parts and instructions.
