KP Letov S-328 - Floatplane or Landplane, 1/72

Plastic Model Kit,   Box Condition: Good++

$14   

Very attractive 1930s float plane. Contains markings for Czech Air Force. Never started and inventoried complete with all parts and includes decals and instructions. And thank you to Ales Pakosta for the following information- The actual use of the S-328 floatplane was quite unique- it was used as a training target tug plane during the CzechoslovakAnti-Aircraft Artillery maneuvers in the contemporary Yugoslavia, in theBoka Kotorska (Bay of Kotor, now in Montenegro). In fact, it was not navalartillery training, but the arrangement was done in this manner so thatshells fired from shore fell into the sea to preventdamage on the land. As there was no appropriate airfield nearby, thetarget tug aircraft had to operate from the sea surface. About three piecesof this aircraft were produced as a modification of the contemporaryCzechoslovak light bomber-scout biplane. They replaced the classic fixedundercarriage with a pair of floats purchased from the British Shortcompany. The seaplanes remained in use for a several years in their specialrole. The land-based versions of the S-328 (which can be built from the kitas well) were very popular in the Czechoslovak Air force in the midthirties; many were seized by Luftwaffe in 1939. The last knowncombat use of these machines came in 1944 during the Slovakian NationalUprise, when their pilots had to fight such planes as Messerschmidt Bf109G.

Lindberg 1961 Chevrolet Impala SS 409, 1/25, 72163

Plastic Model Kit,   Box Condition: Sealed NM

$36   

Still factory sealed. The 1961 Chevy 409 is the car that everyone heard about but hardly anyone saw. Only 142 409 CID engines were produced in 1961. Popularized by the Beach Boy's song and numerous race wins, it is counted as one of the first muscle cars since it has a high displacement engine in a (relatively) light weight body. The 409 was a late-year production option intended to replace (and correct the faults) of the 348 V-8. Although it looked like a "W" block 348, it was not and differed internally and by casting numbers. Because of the late roll-out and the delay in obtaining the desired cylinder heads, many '61 409s were sent out the factory door with the high performance 348 cylinder heads (from the 3x2 carb configuration. It worked well, but as a result few '61 409s ended up with the intended heads. Not all '61 409s were SS (Super Sport) models. There were about 453 SS kits made vs. 142 409s. Some SSs were factory installed but many are thought to be dealer installed; they were mainly put on the 2DR HT, but a SS Convertible was found in a junkyard back in the early 1990s and documented to be original (shockingly, it has the original 409 in it also). 1961 409 attrition was severe, as many if not most were raced. Although a good engine, it was far from perfect and that did not help. It is believed that 6 remain of the 142 made. The block was altered for the '62 409 and new casting numbers were used, making the '61 409 castings and numbers unique to that year. The actual kit is from 1996 and one of Lindberg's finest efforts. Very well detailed and features a full 409 engine with correct factory fuel set up (4 bbl and dual snorkel air clearer), correct Muncie four speed manual transmission, good engine compartment detail, opening hood with scale hinges, detailed chassis with separately molded springs, front and rear suspension, drive shaft and complete exhaust, full interior with the correct 4 speed 61-only shifter plate, separately molded chrome door handles, fender ornaments, windshield wipers, SS spinners and an extensive decal set that covers from the valve covers to the speedometer and individual instrument faces. Molded in white, clear, red-tint clear, chrome plate and with rubber tires.

Plastic Model Kit,   Box Condition: VG

$38   

1960s Pyro issue from original molds. In the early to mid 1960s the Pyro company chose many of it's kit subjects based more on historical significance than popularity.

The Pyro car models are based on the actual cars that Pyro engineers and designers had access to. later issues of this kit state on the side that it can be converted to model road racing (slot car). The model includes beautiful deep maroon injection molded parts, clear parts, detailed molded chassis and complete interior. Never started. Inventoried complete with all parts and instructions.

Frog JU-87G Stuka Red Series, 1/72, F195

Plastic Model Kit,   Box Condition: VG+

$20   

Very nicely molded kit with very fine raised panel detail. Kit includes cockpit and crew of two, two underwing anti-tank cannon and decals for either Hungarian Air Force 102/1 Dive Bomber Sq or Stab/Stukageschwader 2 Hans Rudel with 1000 Tanks Destroyed. Inventoried 100% complete with all parts 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.
