Rogers Motor Company Bofors 40mm AA Gun and Carriage, 1/16, 40

Wood Model Kit,   Box Condition: VG

$89   

Rare, large 1/16 scale highly pre-fabricated kit from 1945. Very high quality wood scale kit measuring 14 inches long when assembled. Features pre-cut and precarved hardwood parts, completely formed wheels, die-cut fibre detail parts, numerous other pre-shaped and factory cut parts and much more. Rogers spent a significant amount of time on the instructions, providing detailed assembly steps, a photo of the completed model, full size plans and a very large number of assembly detail drawings. The kit has never been started. The small parts are either still in factory sealed paper bags or inventoried complete. The parts that were never factory sealed have been inventoried complete with full 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 at 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 true scale, highly prefabricated, had excellent detail and were fairly complicated. Rogers produced at least four kits - the 40MM AA Gun and Carriage (1/16 scale), Army Weasel, LST and an amazing huge scale M4 Sherman tank with over 780 parts. 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. And thanks to kit builder and collector Fran Fierko for some new and important kit history! Fran was able to track down the son of the designer of the five Rogers kits. Mr. John Hoenle Jr. was a master model builder who received a deferment from the draft in WWI to build recognition models for the military- some of which may still be on display at Wright-patterson AFB in Ohio. Mr. Hoenle is believed to have designed one other early kit, a civilian Chris Craft cabin cruiser. It is unknown if this kit was issued or not. Mr. Hoenle left Rogers to design promo models for Jo-Han, which is famous for their 1950s line of car kits.
