Roseplane Nieuport 12 French and RAF WWI Fighter, 1/72

Vacuform Model Kit,   Box Condition: Good

$28   

Very high quality vac parts with full interior and vac windscreen. Extruded rod is included for struts. Never started and complete with all parts and plans/instructions. Roseplane did not furnish decals with this kit. The Nieuport 12 was a larger and more powerful Nieuport 10. Several hundred were built and served with RFC and the RNAS as well as the French Air Force. The unique feature of the aircraft was a transparent 'skylight' in the center upper wing.

Airframe Siemens-Schuckert D.IV (D-IV) or D.III (D-III) - Bagged, 1/72

Vacuform Model Kit,   Box Condition: Good

$10   

Still factory sealed. Basic vac kit with some molded in detail. Comes with alternate parts so you can build the D-IV or the D-III. Certain modeling skills are required to build vacuform kits. Not recommended for beginners. The D-III was renowned for it's incredible rate of climb, but was plagued by engine trouble. The D-IV was designed to have a higher speed in level flight, and in some respects was a better fighter than the famous Fokker D-VII.

Frog Supermarine S-6B (S.6B) Racing Seaplane, 1/72, F164

Plastic Model Kit,   Box Condition: Good++

$34   

Very finely molded model of the classic racer that paved the way for the Spitfire. The kit has never been started. Inventoried 100% complete including 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.

Revell 1907 Renault Limousine Highway Pioneers - Series Four, 1/32, H53-89

Plastic Model Kit,   Box Condition: VG

$44

The parts are still sealed in the original 'krinkle' bag and the kit is complete with instructions. Before the 1950s 'model building' never made the top 10 list of boy's activities. Hobbies were nothing new to America in the 1930s/40s, but they were not mainstream. Shortly after the turn of the century, many dedicated modelers built flying or static airplanes, ship, train, automotive or other subjects. Basic kits existed, but the majority of these models were built from scratch, which demanded a high talent level developed from years of experience. That changed in the early 1950s. The phenomenon of the Revell/Gowland & Gowland 'Highway Pioneers' car kits was a significant force in proving that model building as a hobby could have mass appeal, provided that the kits were easy enough to build and finish. These 1/32 scale vehicles could be built in an hour after dinner and looked much like the real car. The Highway Pioneers series lead to the production of other subjects in plastic and the effect was revolutionary. By the early 1960s, model building was the #1 past time of American boys.

Life-Like 1936 Duesenberg SSJ - LaGrande-Bodied Roadster (ex-Pyro), 1/32, 09450

Plastic Model Kit,   Box Condition: Sealed Mint

$32   

Still factory sealed. 1970s Life-Like issue from the original 1966 Pyro molds. Features detailed chassis, complete motor and interior and a removable hood. In the early to mid 1960s the Pyro company chose many of its kit subjects based more on historical significance than popularity. Luckily for us, Pyro not only made these kits but did an excellent job for the time. The Pyro car models are based on the actual cars that Pyro engineers and designers had access to, in this case Gary Cooper and Clark Gable's automobiles. This was the Duesenberg Company's last great automobile before going out of business in 1937. The Model J was a superb automobile and the fastest and finest car of it's day. Never to be outdone, the two brothers made two supercharged 'Super-Duesenbergs' were constructed from J models and are referred to as SSJs. The out put was a whopping 400 bhp. (The term SSJ was never used by the factory.)
