Hawk Howard Ike Air Racer - One Piece Box Issue 1949, 1/48, 602

Plastic Model Kit,   Box Condition: Exc


Rare early one piece box issue from the 1949. Hawk was a very innovative model company that went into business in the 1920s with model aircraft made from wood with metal detail parts. Hawk also made ship and train models in this fashion. It is thought that the first injection molded aircraft kits in the United States were made by Varney in 1946, but they did not catch on quickly. Hawk was always an innovative and quality-driven company, and they took a gamble on injection molded kit well before they were popular. As early as 1946 they issued the 1/48 Curtiss R3C-1 with wheels. This may have been the first plastic airplane kit in the USA. Like Varney's Fleet Sub and PT-17, they were shunned by hobby dealers. Hawk persisted with the 'Evolution of the Jet' gift set in 1948. In 1948, they also issued the four racer kits - the Supermarine S6B, Gee-Bee, Howard Ike and Laird all in Acetate. The F-84G and Constellation were also issued but were the first Hawk kits molded in polystyrene. All were in the two-tone one-piece flip box or straight one piece box with opening ends like this one. This is the 1949 polystyrene issue. This model is molded in the correct glossy white with a unique early stand. The model was issued with instructions but did not come with decals. The instructions tell you that 'All license numbers are gold outlined in black'. The kit has never been started. The contents have been inventoried 100% complete with all parts and instructions.

Aurora The Blue Knight of Milan, 1/8, 472

Plastic Model Kit,   Box Condition: Sealed NM


Still sealed with the factory tape on both long ends. 1960s Aurora of Great Britain issue with brilliant box art. Kit contains large 1/8 scale knight, base, plume and instructions. In the mid 1950s, Aurora bought three 'Knight' molds from Crown Plastics and issued them as K1, K2 and K3. These were the very first Aurora figure kits and they sported the 1956-only rectangular 'Northern Lights' logo with the correct 'Crown Line' logo inside it. The sales success of the Knight prompted Aurora to launch an entire line of figure kits. The knights themselves stayed in production long after many other figures were discontinued.

Guillow, was a WWI naval aviator. In 1926 he began producing wooden model airplane kits. His 'Shelf Models' were some of the earlier non-flying models in production. Guillow's grew during the model boom of the 1930s, and when the Depression hit the hardest, Guillow's responded with lower prices and became one of the low price leaders, frequently advertising in Model Airplane News and other leading publications. During the war, like most manufacturers, Guillow's was forced to alternative materials such as cardboard and pine. Guillow's survived the post WWII slump by creating many inexpensive profile flying rubber powered aircraft and gliders in the 1950s (along with North Pacific) which became famous - some are still available today. The stick and tissue lines have been updated with laser cut parts and are still in production as of 2009.

Lindberg is a company with a fascinating history The original 'Lindberg Line' stretches back to the 1930s when Paul Lindberg drew plans for famous modeling magazines and marketed his balsa wood 'stick and tissue' by urging dealers to carry the '...Complete Lindberg Line'. After the war, Lindberg and Olsen had a strong hand in early United States injection molded kit development. Please see the article located on this website about early USA plastic kit manufactures.
