Charmore F-86 Sabre - Trail Blazers of Transportation, 1/70

Plastic Model Kit,   Box Condition: Exc++

Sold   

Very rare kit for the advanced collector. Charmore was located at 126 Market Street in Paterson New Jersey. They issued a small line of kits in the early 1950s, at the dawn of US plastic kit production. All boxes have the same art - the name of the kit stamped on a side white panel. Inside, the kit has never been started. The contents are mint and complete in the original Charmore paper sacks. The main parts are the correct silver, while the canopy, stand and stand arm are clear. Includes decals and instructions. From toy historians, we know that Charmore was created by the toy giant Louis Marx Company after 1945. Evidently Marx hope to obtain retail buyer-level advantages and tax breaks from the arrangement. The company was named for Louis' brother's (David) wife, Charlene. It has been shown that Charmore and Marx mixed molds and products when it came to toys; however, it seems that the model lines were separate. Please email me if you have more details.

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

Wood and Metal Model Kit,   Box Condition: Exc+

Sold   

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. It has been inventoried 100% complete with all parts, 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.
