Plastic Model Kit, Box Condition: Poor
First issue from the early 1950s in the one-piece box. Molded in high gloss yellow and black. The model has not been started. Complete with instructions, decals and all parts. The box is complete but has numerous tears, tape marks, tape stains etc as shown. The earliest issues of this kit did not have decal; this one does. That dates is as late in the first release. In the 1920s through the 1940s Hawk made constant scale 1/48 aircraft kits from wood. In 1946 they added plastic injection molded kits to the line and were possibly the first injection molded kit manufacturer in the USA. When Hawk made an early jump to all-plastic kits they kept the 1/48 scale and created these new one-piece boxes with two color artwork.

Rare 1954 original issue. Box color and gloss are as new with four solid corners and no price tags. Flaws include very light edge and corner wear, light scuffing and a tiny tape pull (1/4 by 1/4 inch) on one long side from the factory tape. Molded in dark wood brown. Like all Miniature Masterpieces kits, this one is very finely engraved and molded with excellent detail. The model includes detailed instructions, a rarity in the early 1950s. The kit has never been started. Inside it is like new with all parts still sealed in the factory 'krinkle' bag. 'Miniature Masterpieces' was formed through an alliance of Lou Glasser (Revell) and Steve Adams (Adams Action Models) in 1953. Although having the appearance of an independent company, the firm was run by Revell down to the prototypes being made at the Revell plant. However, there was no evidence of the parent company on the surface. The State Coach of England was the first kit, issued in 1953. More kits of excellent quality followed. Revell completely took over the line in 1954, making the one-year original issues very rare.
