  Frog Model Kits

Frog Westland Wessex I (S-58) - Royal Australian Navy or Royal Navy - Red Series, 1/72, F247

Plastic Model Kit,   Box Condition: Good

$22   

Molded in light gray-blue. Very nicely molded model. Includes decals for both versions. The kit has never been started. It has been inventoried with all helicopter parts and includes decals and instructions. NOTE: box is graded lower than it looks because there is a big tear and much missing cardboard on the right small side flap. 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.

Frog Handley Page Victor B.1. Crescent Wing 'V Force' Bomber, 1/96, 355P

Plastic Model Kit,   Box Condition: Good

$185   

Rare. Classic 1950s Frog kit in large 1/96 scale of this famous 'V Force' Bomber. The box displays well with very nice color and gloss, but is graded only 'good' because one corner is split and has clear tape on it, there is clear tape on the sides where someone taped the box shut, and there is general wear as shown. Nicely molded kit with all recessed pane lines and full landing gear that can be installed up or retracted. The kit is molded in off-white and clear with the large, black Frog stand that was unique to the bigger kits. The decals are flat and in excellent condition - even the clear wax paper covering is intact. Instructions are excellent also. There is even an unopened tube of FROG Polystyrene Cement! The kit has never been started. Inventoried 100% complete including decals and instructions. Frog is considered the father of injection molded model kits.

Frog Lockheed Ventura PV-1 Bomber/Reconnaissance, 1/72, F240

Plastic Model Kit,   Box Condition: VG+

$450   

Very rare. Near the end, Frog had projected several future kits. In the case of the Ventura, the kit was never released but the molds were made. Around 40,000 boxes were made anticipating production. Most of the boxes were destroyed. A unknown number of decals sheets were produced. There are no instruction sheets reported. The mold was put in the machine and 100 test shots were run - the only Ventura run at Frog. The 100 test shots were not sold but some found their way into collectors hands. This example is in a 'very good+' box with four solid corners and light general wear. It contains the decals and all parts. It is molded in gloss dark blue and clear, which is correct for the test shots. The kit has never been started and is complete. Please note there are no instructions as none were ever made. Shipping insurance is required for this kit.

The Buccaneer was the world's first purpose designed low level 'below the radar' bomber.

Kit features opening unique rotating bomb bay, folding wings and working arresting hook.
