AMT-Frog Westland Lysander - French or RAF, 1/72, A607-80

Plastic Model Kit,   Box Condition: Exc++

$22   

This model is part of a short-lived AMT marketing promo to boost AMT and Frog sales. AMT would import kits from Frog, re-box them and market them in North America. Features decals for the two versions listed and optional extra fuel tank for clandestine missions that the short-take-off-and-landing Lysander performed so well. The kit has never been started. The parts are still in the internal factory sealed bags and includes decals and instructions.

Still factory sealed and in investment-grade condition. This is the white-sided box variant. A well-holed and damaged FW makes a hasty power-off landing in this great box art. The emergency vehicles race down the runway ready to douse the flaming engine. The pilot has the canopy open to clear the smoke or to make a hasty exitor both. This is the larger format box version of this kit and has black sides. The smaller box is kit #6-39. There are at least three known Craftmaster box variants with this box art - the small box one 6-89 and two kits sharing #1223-50; one has black side panels and one has white.

Please NOTE that the box top displays 'excellent+' but I have graded the box 'very good' because there is clear tape on the sides and some tape tears on the sides also.

Frog Handley Page Victor B.1. Crescent Wing 'V Force' Bomber, 1/96, 355P

Plastic Model Kit,   Box Condition: Good

$185   

Rare. Classic 1950s Frog kit in large 1/96 scale of this famous 'V Force' Bomber. The box displays well with very nice color and gloss, but is graded only 'good' because one corner is split and has clear tape on it, there is clear tape on the sides where someone taped the box shut, and there is general wear as shown. Nicely molded kit with all recessed pane lines and full landing gear that can be installed up or retracted. The kit is molded in off-white and clear with the large, black Frog stand that was unique to the bigger kits. The decals are flat and in excellent condition - even the clear wax paper covering is intact. Instructions are excellent also. There is even an unopened tube of FROG Polystyrene Cement! 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.

Frog SE 210 Caravelle Air France, 1/96, F357

Plastic Model Kit,   Box Condition: Good

$159   

Rare, big scale kit from the 1950s. The box is nice with four solid corners but has creasing and wear as shown. Inside, the kit is molded in the correct clear and silver with the correct big Frog base that was unique to these larger kits. Even the original glue capsule is included. The kit has never been started. Inventoried 100% complete including decals and instructions. As often happened, the decals were folded at the factory; that and age have caused some minor lifting on the decals.
