OldModelKits SS Normandie Ocean Liner 1935, 1/350

Resin Model Kit,   Box Condition: VG

$950   

Oldmodelkits.com has received exclusive license from French Lines/CGT to produce and sell the SS Normandie in 1/350 scale. This nine-year project is a 100% new kit. Seven of those years were spent accurately modeling the ship from scratch in TurboCAD. All this design work was done by a master modeler and engineer who helped pioneer industrial CAD and 3D printing at GM. This limited-run kit represents the Normandie from her 1935 maiden voyage to New York and has over 1,100 individual parts. The hull and larger parts are pressure-cast resin from de-aired molds. There are two large photoetched brass sheets (one for railings, ladders, details, etc. and one for the davits), three sheets of laser-cut, real wood printed decking (from Scale Decks), decals, flag sheet and a DVD with detailed, highly illustrated instructions including painting guide, step-by-step rigging instructions and research material. NOTE: this kit must be shipped insured.

Heller Bloch 174, 1/72

Plastic Model Kit,   Box Condition: VG+

$32   

Old high-gloss 'L' type box issue from the 1960s with no part number. Excellent armed reconnaissance bomber that first flew in January of 1939. By the time of the German Invasion, only 50 had been made and only one unit operated the aircraft exclusively. The excellent performance allowed the existing 174s to be used extensively with little losses. After the Armistice, it continued to operate with the Vichy forces. Some saw action along side the Allies during TORCH in North Africa. The kit has never been started. Inventoried 100% complete including decals and instructions.

Rogers Motor Company LCI Landing Craft Infantry, 1/135, 196

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

$125   

Rare, highly pre-fabricated kit from 1946. Very high quality wood and metal scale LST measuring 14 inches long when assembled; the given 1/135 scale is approximate. Features a completely pre-carved hardwood hull, wooden hardwood superstructure parts that are completely cut and shaped, preformed gun tubs, details such as anchors, guns, vents, lockers, ammo boxes, rudder, propellers, life rafts, bow ramps and much more that are all made from metal, wood, heavy embossed bristol board and other materials as well. Includes full size plans with detailed parts list and instructions. The kit has never been started. The small parts that were factory sealed are still in factory sealed bags. The other parts that were never factory sealed have been inventoried complete with the internal cardboard presentation material and large, detailed instructions with plans. Rogers was an early producer of miniature gas engines for free-flight and early radio control model kits and often had large adds for these engines in hobby magazines. The full company name on the box is listed as 'Rogers Motor Company Detroit Michigan' and the 'Scale Model Division' is listed as Tawas City, Michigan. Right near the end of WWII, Rogers made a very short journey into kit manufacturing. As you would expect from an engine manufacture, the kits were all highly prefabricated, had excellent detail and were fairly complicated. Rogers produced at least four kits - the M4 Sherman Tank, 40MM AA Gun and Carriage (1/16 scale), Army Weasel and LST. These kits were likely produced in that order, with the LST being released around late 1945/early 1946. I have seen several of these kits built and they make excellent displays.

Frog Westland Wessex I (S-58) - Royal Australian Navy or Royal Navy - Red Series, 1/72, F247

Plastic Model Kit,   Box Condition: Exc-

$28   

Molded in light gray-blue. Very nicely molded model. Includes decals for both versions. This kit has never been started. Inventoried 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 manufactures 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.

Lindberg Lockheed F-80C (P-80) Shooting Star, 1/48, 500-98

Plastic Model Kit,   Box Condition: VG

$45   

From original O-lin molds. 1950 kit with Ray Gaedke hardbox artwork. Never started. NOTE: missing pilot seat. Otherwise inventoried complete with all other parts, decals and instructions. It is true that earlier versions of this kit did not come with a seat and/or pilot - at one point it was not even shown on the instructions. The first seat was a simple horizontal 'plank. I have seen so many of these with no seat at all that I feel these may be old O-Lin kits that Lindberg wished to use up, so he put them in new Lindberg boxes with new instructions. Paul Lindberg got his start in 1930s model aviation by designing, building and flying stick and tissue aircraft. His plans appeared in Popular Aviation magazine and he soon made a name for himself. When injection molding showed the way to increased kit sales in the late 1940s/early 1950s, he quickly teamed up with Mr. Olsen to create 'O-lin' models. Ray Gaedke was one the the early artists for O-lin, and he help pioneer dramatic and colorful box artwork. In the early 1950s Paul Lindberg was running the company and had the logo changed to his name. The first logo was circular, with 'Lindberg' in middle and 'Products' 'Incorporated' arched across the top and bottom. The second logo is the 'Yellow Square' that is on this kit. Ray Gadke continued his bold and colorful artwork for Lindberg and did this F-80C boxart as well.

MPM Kawanishi N1K1 'Shinden' George, 1/72, 72123

Plastic Model Kit,   Box Condition: Exc++

$20   

Kit features fine, all recessed panel line detail, many photoetched parts and decals for four aircraft. Never started. Factory sealed bag or inventoried 100% complete with all parts, decals and instructions. During construction of the NiK1 Kyofu (Strong Wind) float plane, the design team at Kawanishi did a study of converting that aircraft to a land-based fighter. The design seemed very promising, but the Japanese Navy rejected it. Kawanishi decided to privately fund the building of prototypes regardless. The aircraft flew and flew well, but the navy was unimpressed as they ordered the J2M Raiden into production. Kawanishi, undaunted, built four additional prototypes. The IJN was finally won over, and funds were released to produce the fighter. Production problems were solved in time for the Shiden (Violet Lightning) to see action before the end of the war, but not in significant numbers to change the tide. The Shiden was an excellent aircraft, but a modified version, NiK2-J may have been the finest Japanese Naval fighters of the war.
