Plastic Model Kit,   Box Condition: Good-

Sold   

Great builder, please read carefully. Dated 1998 and from the excellent original Monogram 'Flak Bait' molds. This release features a super-detailed resin cast cockpit/ bombardier areas, nose gear well, complete top turret, main wheel well bulkheads and gear well plates and extensive decals for three aircraft, 'Miss Manchester', 'Thumper' and 'Miss Mary.' NOTE: this kit had minor, neat assembly. Two resin side panels were painted and glued into the cockpit at the correct locations. However, the glue got old and they dropped cleanly out. There is no other assembly or painting. NOTE: missing #46 rear gunner's bulkhead. Otherwise inventoried with all other parts, decals and instructions present.

Comet Martin B-26 Marauder, 1/64, M2

Wood Model Kit,   Box Condition: VG-

Sold   

Rare. In the 1930s and 1940s, most modelers built the flying stick and tissue type models with rubber, co2 or gas power. But there were a small but measurable percent that built solid aircraft display models of great detail. This required great skill worthy of the shipbuilders of old, especially considering the limited offerings. Many manufactures issued blocks of wood and a plan - the famous (or infamous) 'Make Wood Look Like Plane' kits. A few manufactures made expensive super detailed kits with metal accessories (like Dyna-Products). Comet came in the middle and struck a nice balance of detail and cost. The B-26 features a beautiful 3D cut fuselage, 2D cut wings and nacelles, 2D cut horizontal and vertical stabilizers, fully finished wheels, two sheets of quality printwood, full template sheet made of cardstock, wood stock, sandpaper, full color decals for 'Stinky' and a very large and detailed sheet of drawings including detailed and illustrated construction steps. Never started and complete. Comet was a famous manufacturer of stick and tissue flying and static models. In the 1930s Great Depression, they lead the low-priced kit revolution with the "Dime Scale" kits and famous advertisements in Model Airplane News magazine and others. Comet reached its peak in the 1930s when they acquired the services of Carl Goldberg. Goldberg was a highly accomplished modeler with articles in Model Airplane News and famous designs that won him several National level competitions in the 1930s and beyond. (Carl Goldberg went on to found his own company and produced well designed and popular free-flight and RC aircraft). Comet survived the post World War economic slump and continued kit production until they were bought out by long-time competitor Guillow's in 1998.

Sold

It is either still in the internally sealed factory bag or has been 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 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 1914 Mercedes Racer, 1/16, 6605

Plastic Model Kit,   Box Condition: Good-

Sold   

Big scale issue from 1977. Features engine, rolling chassis, interior, body and decals. Molded in bright yellow and black. The kit has never been started. It has been inventoried complete with all parts and includes decals and instructions. Please note this is the very old Saunders Swadar kit from the 1950s. Saunders Swadar Toy Company was located in Aurora, Illinois. In the early 1950s they decided to make a line of cars which they called 'Classics of Road and Track.' Theses were possibly the largest injection-molded car models to date, measuring in at 1/16. Although they had a low piece count, they were revolutionary at the time, having much greater scale fidelity than the Revell Highway Pioneers.

The F2A saw extensive and successful service in WWI and sported many interesting paint jobs from dark green, red and white and dazzle paint or 'Jazz Patterns.' The early flying boats of the RNAS were largely due to the design talents of Lt. John Porter. Porter had worked in America for Glenn Curtiss, and he returned to England in 1914 when WWI started. He reported to Felixstowe where he redesigned the 'Large America' flying boat into the F2A.
