Hawk Mig-15, 1/48, 707

Plastic Model Kit,   Box Condition: NM+

$125   

Very rare early injection molded kit. This kit is from 1952, so it was made at the same time that the Gowland & Gowland 'Highway Pioneers' were released. Hawk was a producer of wooden kits ( with metal or plastic details) before and after WWII, and was one of the handful of manufactures to produce such kits (known as 'solids') in a consistent 1/48 scale. Hawk made aircraft, ship and train models in this fashion. The very first injection molded aircraft kits in the United States may have been made by Varney in 1946, but 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 may have issued the 1/48 Curtiss R3C-1 with wheels and in 1948 the 'Evolution of the Jet' gift set. In 1949, they issued several kits - the Supermarine S6B, Gee-Bee, Howard Ike, F-84G and the Constellation. In 1952, the Mig-15 was released in 1/48. As with the previous kits, this is in the Hawk two-tone one-piece flip box. This model is molded in the correct glossy silver with a unique early stand. Molded in gloss silver and green-tinted clear. The box is in exceptional condition. The kit has never been started. The contents have been inventoried 100% complete with all parts, decals and instructions.

AMT Triceratops Dinosaur, 8737

Plastic Model Kit,   Box Condition: Sealed NM

$22   

Still factory sealed. From 1993. The scale and size are not given, but the box is 10 x 8.5 x 3 inches. In regards to the scale, Dusty Rhodes emailed me this- 'I understand from several sources the length of an adult Triceratops is supposed to be about thirty feet or so. So I'm thinking, if the box is anything like (most) AMT kits, the kit body length might be around 8 inches orsomething, which would put the kit possibly around 1/48. Now that's significant...Because it opens up all kinds of diorama possibilities with the Aurora armor series, in celebration of those 60's era comic books depictingSgt. Rock or somebody and his U.S. Army squad fighting dinosaurs. ' Fantastic!! Has this type of diorama been done yet?

Berkeley is a very famous manufacture of flying model kits from the Golden Age of flying aviation, about 1932-1954. Founded in 1933 by William Effinger, the company was quite progressive in producing quality kits - it was likely the Berkeley 'Buccaneer' was the first gas powered model in kit form. In the later 1930s, Effinger acquired the services of a very talented Henry Struck. Struck went on to design numerous award-winning kits under the Berkeley name. Berkeley weathered the post WWII recession and emerged as a major kit producer in the late 1940 and 1950s. These were great years for Berkeley and they produced some incredible and large kits. The company went bankrupt in about 1960 however. Fox engines (Duke Fox) bought the company and released the kits alongside his own FOX models and engines. This arrangement did not last, and in the early 1960s the Berkeley name disappeared from hobby shop shelves.
