Pyro 1914 Mercer Raceabout, 1/32, C452-100

Plastic Model Kit,   Box Condition: VG

$39   

1967 Pyro issue from original molds. In the early to mid 1960s the Pyro company chose many of their kit subjects based more on historical significance than popularity. Luckily for us, Pyro not only made these kits but did an excellent job for the time. The Pyro car models are based on the actual cars that Pyro engineers and designers had access to. In some cases, the specific car and owner is on the box. This car is an exact reproduction of the car owned by Ralph T. Buckley, owner of the Antique Auto Shop of New Jersey. This shop specialized in rebuilding Mercer automobiles to factory new condition. The car was part of the Gene Zimmerman display of over 150 such cars in Holiday West PA. The model includes rubber tires, brass plated parts, colored injection molded parts and clear parts. Features detailed chassis, complete motor and interior and a removable hood or 'bonnet.' Molded in deep red, brass plating, clear and with rubber tires. Never started. Inventoried 100% complete with all parts and instructions.

Sankyo Sankyo SR Single Servo 'Carry' / OS Minitron Escapement / Receiver / Perfect Gas Tank / Kato Model Aircraft 110 CC Clunk Tank (TWO) and Kato 240 CC Clunk Tank Antique R/C Parts - All NOS

Other Materials,   Box Condition: VG+

$65   

Most likely from the late 1950s or very early 1960s. Includes all seven item in mint, NOS condition. Never used. The SR 'Singl Servo Carry' is still in the original factory clear bag and packing material. The OS Escapement is still in the factory clear bag and packing material. The other escapement box appears to contain an NOS receiver - that is my guess since it has a significant antenna. The Perfect gas tank is the #23 Long Senior Wedgetank with a 2 oz capacity; this is a soldered metal tank. The three 'Clunk Tanks' are all new in the box. I believe they are fuel bottles.

Frog Bristol Beaufighter Mk.21 Spin Issue - 31 Sq 77 Wing Dutch East Indies 1944 / 22 Sq RAAF Australian Air Force Sanga Sanga Phillipines Late 1944 - Green Series, 1/72, F291Spin

Plastic Model Kit,   Box Condition: Good+

$29   

Hard-to-find 1970s 'Spin' version. This kit contains the extra parts required to accept the Frog F20 Spin-a-prop motorizing kit (not included). Nicely molded kit with no rivets for a realistic model when built. Has load-out and markings for the two aircraft listed. The kit has never been started. The actual airplane has been inventoried complete with all parts and includes decals and instructions. NOTE: missing display stand. 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.

NOTE: this kit has minor assembly. The capstan, a short post and a bulkhead have been glued to the main deck. There is no other assembly. The kit is missing (1) of (8) #8 Kevels - looks like a large cleat. 3 of the eyebolts are a darker plastic - they are from an earlier issue of this same kit.

Aurora Curtiss Hawk P-6E, 1/43, 116-130

Plastic Model Kit,   Box Condition: Sealed Mint

$75   

Still factory sealed. The kit is dated 1958, but this is obviously a later issue as the Aurora logo does not say 'Famous Fighters' in the border and has no sunburst - due to the 130 price extension, it is most likely from 1961 or '62.

Orange Crush-Revell 1915 Ford Model T, 1/32

Plastic Model Kit,   Box Condition: Good-

$69   

Very rare kit with a fascinating history. Around 1958/59, Orange Crush of Mexico offered a promotion. They offered free, colorful, plastic model cars if you collected correctly-marked Orange Crush bottle caps. The models are 1/32 scale Revell Highway Pioneer series - although there is no mention of Revell or Lodela anywhere on the box. Orange Crush had the boxes and even the instructions specially made for them with no mention of a manufacturer. They were never given numbers. The boxes were very thin and fragile cardboard. This has contributed to wear and you must be very cautious with them. The kit has never been started. The parts are still in the internal factory sealed bag and the instructions are sealed in the bag as well. You could redeem your caps two ways - at the Orange Crush truck and at a Modelandia Hobby House. The box sides show the 18 cars in the series. Orange Crush also released two full-color booklets and a complete paint set for the cars. A colorful cardboard box held 7 colors of paint in glass bottles, complete with 'Orange Crush' screw-on caps! The entire promotion was done in coordination with Modelandia Hobby House which had up to 19 stores. Modelandia's name appears on each of the boxes and the paint as well. Robina S.A. was the bottler or distributor of Orange Crush in Mexico at that time. The box side lists the other 18 kits with small color pictures of each and shows three sizes of OC - Family Size (Familiar), Grand (Grande) and Normal. You could also obtain models with Titan bottle caps. Titan was also bottled by Robina and came in large (Titan) and smaller (Titancito) sizes and apparently more than one flavor. We do not know how Orange Crush had access to the plastic kits or who sealed the internal bags with the Crush instructions inside them. We can assume that it may have been Lodela, since they would have had access to the Revell molds. It is not know for how long the promotion lasted, but Orange Crush was one of the most dominant soft drinks in Mexico at that time. Here is one clue: some boxes claim that Modelandia had 13 locations; other boxes, which obviously came later on, claim 19 locations. This may indicate that this promotion went on for a significant amount of time.
