HMS Hero 1-2

F124 or 124PK ?


As part of Frogs 1964 releases the 1/500 scale Warship HMS HERO is unique in that on the box front it carries the catalogue number 124 PK but on the box ends F 124.

Between 1964 and 1974 220,00 kits were produced both in Merton and later in Margate. Other interesting points to note are that the early International Model Aircraft logo appears on the box end as well as the words: A TRI-ANG Product.

Interestingly this packing survived into the 1970’s. See some more illustrations of this model below.
