1/48 629-60 Hawk Ben Howard 'Ike' Air Racer
Sealed NM Injection Molded old
Still factory sealed but the seal has splits. Mid-1960s hardbox issue with classic Campbell box art. Very well made kit with excellent fit and fine recessed and raised panel lines. Includes plyon display stand; excellent for use in a 1930s Air Racing Diorama. The Ike was built by Ben Howard near the Old Chicago Airport (now Midway) and first flew in competition during the Thompson Trophy Race in 1932. It finished 7th with William Ong at the controls. In 1933 she finished 3rd with Roy Minor as pilot at an average speed 8 mph above 1932. In 1934, she finished yet another 8 mph above '33 with Harold Neumann as pilot and finished 4th in the Thompson.
