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.

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.

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.
