Frog Canadair Sabre Mk6 or Mk 32 (F-86) - Luftwaffe or Royal Australian Air Force - Bagged, 1/72, F267

Plastic Model Kit,   Box Condition: No Box

Sold   

Bagged kit. Molded in silver and clear, and contains decals for both air forces. This kit has never been started. It is still in the internally sealed factory bag and includes 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.

Wagon Masters Chuck Wagon - 'Wagons of the Old West' - With Wagon Masters Ox Team Kit, 106

Wood and Metal Model Kit,   Box Condition: Good++

Sold   

Also includes Wagon Masters #952:298 Ox Team, which includes two hardwood oxen fully carved to the scale of the wagon. Never started and complete with all parts, yoke and instructions. Box is 'Exc+'. The wagon kit is very nicely done and from the late 1950s or early 1960s. The Chuck Wagon is a large and fairly elaborate kit with very good scale details for it's time. Measures 8 inches long when assembled (wagon only) or 16.5 inches long (wagon with rear table down and tongue). Kit consists of California redwood and sugar pine wooden parts all completely cut to shape, pre-assembled hardwood front and rear wagon wheels with spokes, canvas wagon cover, rope, scale hand tools and metal and brass stock as needed. Features metal sprung seat, full underside detail with axles, brake beam and shoes, reach, hound, cross bed tie, double tree and single trees, hand brake, water barrel, hinged rear board (table), tool box, interior shelves, wire frame, canvas cover and tongue with neck yolk. The kit has never been started. The metal fittings bag is still factory sealed. The parts that were not factory sealed have been inventoried complete with instructions. Wagon Masters was out of 12551 Telegraph Rd, Sante Fe Springs, California. No zip code was listed, so the kits are definitely pre 1964. Wagon Masters had a ambitious line of wagons done in hardwood and metal; some had plastic details. Kit in the series included kit #100 Covered Wagon, #101 Conestoga Wagon, #103 Stage Coach, #102 Buckboard, #104 Ore Wagon (with genuine copper ore), #105 Ranch Wagon, #1-6 Chuck Wagon, Yellowstone Wagon, Jerkey Wagon, Sheepherder's Wagon, Drummers' Wagon, #950 Horse Team, #951 Mule Team and #952 Ox Team. All kits were done in the same scale, but the scale was not listed. Other kits may have been issued. In the mid 1960s it appears that the entire line was sold to CraftMaster. CraftMaster put their stickers on some of the later model Wagon Master boxes before converting over to all CraftMaster artwork.
