Frog Miles Master III Advanced Trainer Blue Series, 1/72, 340P

Plastic Model Kit,   Box Condition: Good

$34   

Finely molded in dark yellow and clear. Includes a fold-up Frog catalog as well. This kit has never been started. It has been inventoried 100% complete with all parts, decals and instructions present. 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.

Plastic Model Kit,   Box Condition: Good-

$45

Monogram B-26 Invader - Four Star Issue, 1/67, PA6-98

Plastic Model Kit,   Box Condition: Exc

$65   

Early Monogram model dated 1955. The box is in excellent condition with brilliant, like new color and gloss.

The actual release for this kit is probably between 1961 and 1966. Although created to 'box scale' (1/67 in this case), this model was very popular and remained in the catalog right up into the 1970s. Molded in the correct gloss silver and clear. The kit has never started. Inventoried with all parts, decals and instructions present. NOTE: the following very small parts have broke off but are present: 3 wing machine guns, one nose machine gun and 1/2 of the ADF antenna.
