La Belle D&RG 28 Foot Caboose HOn3 Narrow Gauge - Craftsman Model, 1/87, HOn3-37

During the golden era of realistic train models, La Belle Woodworking Company created perhaps the very finest scale kits of early American equipment. The kit features die cut hardwood parts (no balsa) such as pre-cut and scribed sides with all windows factory cut, car ends done in the same fashion, clear window material, excellent underside and cast metal details, building instructions and plans and decals/transfers. I have seen these models built and they look identical to the real prototypes. The kit has not been started and is complete with two packets of small parts envelopes and all other parts inventoried complete with transfers and instructions. Please read the article on this website about older HO train kits and the modeling revolution they caused in the late 1930s/1940s.

Airlane Luscombe Sedan - 14 Inch Wingspan Pre-Fabricated Flying Aircraft, Q7

Wood Model Kit,   Box Condition: NM++


Rare and in investment-grade "Near Mint++" condition. From the early 1950s. This kit is fresh from old store stock that was carefully stored; as a result, it is in exceptional, almost never touched condition. The boxes are as they left the factory with new colors and no damage - even the tabs and box ends are intact and perfect. Inside, this is a 14" wingspan flying wooden model aircraft that is prefabricated along the lines of the Comet Struct-O-Speed. Features all die-cut parts, one-piece balsa wings & tail feathers, fuselage bulkheads & sides, top and bottom in balsa, other balsa parts, completely finished hardwood wheels and thrust button, fully formed wire landing gear struts and prop shaft/rubber retainer, a beautiful bright red plastic 4" prop, cut-out red decorations for dual fuselage and horizontal stabilizer stripes, red cowling, cabin windows and windshield and full instructions. Since this model is all balsa, there is no tissue. Never started. The inside is exactly as it left the factory, including a white letter paper protector for the parts. It is 100% complete. Little is known about Airlane Model Company, but they attracted some of the top model aircraft talent in the country. They were located at 318 W. 29th Street, Chicago, IL. These plans were drawn by Bill Gough, who is a well known Model Aviation Hall of Fame Inductee. He was involved almost from the start with model airplane design and development from 1925 onward. He designed kits for Comet from 1935 to 1938, and after the war developed plastic kits for Monogram and Lindberg. He wrote early articles on model aviation for Sunday newspapers; at one point, he was in 17 national papers. His designs often appeared numerous magazines, especially in "Model Aviation" where he was known for brilliant, innovative and beautiful models that flew well. Bill was a competitive flier for more than 50 years. Starting in 1932 as a Junior Birdman, he competed for years in Chicago area contests. Later, he took parts in the AMA Nats and continued right up until 1984. His list of competition wins is too long to list here. As for Airlane, they had a series of wooden boat kits, a series of wagon (old west style) models, sold glue with their name on it (in 5 and 10 cent sizes) as well as two lines- "R" (larger wingspan, 50 cents) and "Q" (smaller, 25 cents) flying kits which included R1 through R9 Taylorcraft, Betty Skelton Little Stinker, Luscombe Sedan, Ercoupe, Spitfire, Curtiss Helldiver, A2D Skyshark, F-86 Sabre, Mig-15 and Q1-Q12 Cessna 170, Stinson Voyager, Taylorcraft, Piper Cub, Beech Bonanza, Aeronca, Luscombe Sedan, Bellanca Cruisemaster, Ercoupe, Tempest, XP81 and the F8F Bearcat.

Frog Canberra Mk.8 / 12 Low Level Bomber South African or RAF, 1/72, F203

Plastic Model Kit,   Box Condition: Sealed VG


Still factory sealed. Final Frog logo from the late 1970s. Has parts and decals for either version- RAF No.88 Sqn, Wildenrath Germany 1960 or South African Air Force No.12 Sqn, Waterkloof, 1969. 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, Blue, 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.
