Rare Airfix Japan issue. The Mauretania and her sister Lusitania were considered the finest and most beautiful ships of the day, both inside and out.

Hawk Supermarine S.6B (S-6B S6B) Acetate 1948 One Piece Box Issue, 1/48, 700

Plastic Model Kit,   Box Condition: Good++

$175   

For the advanced model collector. This is the first issue in acetate from 1948. It has a fascinating history for it is among the early injection molded kits produced in the United States (please see the article about early USA kit production on this website). The Hawk model company was the most innovative in America and had been making constant 1/48 scale models in wood with metal accessories since the late 1920s. During the re-run of the World's Fair in 1933, Hawk may have made the world's first injection molded airplanes models - but they were not kits. The models were completely finished and were on display for the then-large sum of $25 each. The Mates brothers, who founded and ran Hawk, were quick to incorporate this new technology by replacing the metal detail parts with injection molded details to the wooden kits in the late 1930s. During the war, Hawk put it's injection molding knowledge to work making ID models for the US Armed Forces. Originally there was a nation-wide program to have children and adults make these from wood, but consistency was an issue - injection molded solved this problem. Immediately after WWII in 1946, Hawk made the Curtiss Racer model injection molded in black tenite. The box was a simple one-color affair. This may have been the first injection molded airplane kit produced in the USA; another contender is the Varney's PT-17. Both met a very cool reception at hobby shops. Hawk quickly added two-color art work to the Curtiss box and molded the kit in bright yellow acetate. In 1947, Hawk approached toy stores since hobby shops were giving the kit poor promotion. The toy stores did much better. Spurred on by toy store sales in 1947, Hawk added four classic racers in 1948, all molded in acetate - the Gee Bee, Howard Ike, Laird Solution and the Supermarine S6B. This kit is the one of the early acetate examples from 1948. (Hawk made the switch to polystyrene in 1949.) The acetate is a high-gloss medium gray and has very little warping. With a little pressure, all parts fit together perfectly. This is very unusual as acetate usually warps badly. The kit has never been started. The small parts are still factory sealed in the clear 'krinkle' bag and the big parts that were never factory sealed have been inventoried complete. The instructions are in 'near mint' condition and are the rare, original first issue with text only and no illustrations. One side of the box is 'excellent' (as shown) and the other side is only 'good.' - hence the overall 'good++' grade. All end flaps are present and attached. There is tape on both end flaps and a tape tear on one. The box has not been crushed, bent or flattened, which is unusual, as the one-piece boxes were not very strong. Please note that Hawk did not issue decals or a clear windscreen with the first issue of this kit.
