Resin Model Kit, Box Condition: VG
Rare. Kit number 25 of a very limited run from Planes With Pants located in Erie, PA. The founder was David Thompson and this was his first kit; others were planned but apparently not produced. This kit has been listed as an A5M2 by some sources, but David crossed that out on the instructions and wrote 'Model 4.' John Burn's guide says the Model 4 never appeared, but clearly it did. This is an excellent resin model with very clean castings and all fine recessed panel detail. It features very nice cockpit and engine detail, separately molded rudder, gun camera, optional drop tank and a vacuform clear canopy. There is even a resin plug if you need to make another canopy. The kit has never been started. NOTE: missing the rudder pedals. Easily made. Includes all other parts and well-illustrated instructions.

Multimedia Model Kit, Box Condition: Good-
Rare, large 1/12 scale highly pre-fabricated kit from 1945. Very high quality wood and metal scale Weasel measuring 10.5 inches long when assembled. Features pre-cut and precarved hardwood parts for the main body and deck fittings, completely formed bogie wheels, die-cut fibre bogie chassis, numerous other very thick fibre parts, metal screen and metal stock as needed, complete interior, numerous other die cut parts, completely formed tread links, clear windshield, full decals and much more. Rogers spent a significant amount of time on the 'Photo-Plan' instructions, providing photos for each step and detailed text, full size plans and parts list. The kit has never been started. Inventoried as good as possible and appears complete with all parts, decals and full instructions with plans. There are no part numbers and assembly is by the plans; so inventory is very difficult at best. All the major parts are there but a small (easily made) wood part or two may have been overlooked. 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 Sherman M4 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.

Plastic Model Kit, Box Condition: Good
Rare and likely from the late 1970s. One of at least two Kemziv issues, and probably the earliest of the two known. Large almost 1/48 scale kit of the popular and successful AN-2, the world's largest single engined biplane. The model has never been started and all parts are still sealed in the factory 'krinkle' clear plastic bags. Includes color insignia sheet and full instructions. The insignia are CCCP and Aeroflot for a civil AN-2 transport. This model is the Ex-MEE 1/50 AN-2 kit that was sold as a built up display model and a kit. Production ended at MEE in about 1984. Some molds passed to Genton at that point, and obviously Kemziv got them at some point. Thanks to Tom Marino for help on this.

The Army Raiders kit contains parts for more than one set, but is missing the jeep, tank and troop carrier. The Model Tanks has all the tanks but is missing the jeep. The Ace Whitman tank is an actual scale model and is made from printed cardstock and wood; it has not been started and is complete but the outer box is poor. The Amphibian Jeep is about 85% present and has been started (wheels and a few other parts) and is missing several parts but nothing you cannot make if you are ambitious.
