1960 hardbox issue with artwork by Bill Campbell. The Gee Bee was designed and built by Granville Brothers Aircraft Inc. of Springfield, Massachusetts. The radical design has a wingspan of only 25 feet and a length of 19 feet and 9 inches. The power plant was a supercharged Pratt & Whitney Wasp with an output of 800 hp through a Smith controllable-pitch propeller. Designed specifically to win air races and set speed records, the Gee Bee was a very fast but aerodynamically unstable aircraft. It's most famous pilot, Jimmy Doolittle, flew the ship to victory then walked away, saying that he would never fly it again. Many lost their lives in this legendary but unforgiving aircraft. Never started. 100% complete with all parts decals and instructions.

Rare. From 1956. The hard-to-find 'Picture Gallery' series was Hawk's first move away from the thin one piece boxes and to full color artwork. The artist doing this early work fell sick and Hawk needed the artwork immediately, hence the short run. Bill Campbell was immediately contacted and did box art for Hawk from that point on with Tom Morgan. Molded in correct, beautiful dark gloss blue plastic. Never started. Inventoried 100% complete with all parts, decals and instructions.

Hawk T-6 Texan Trainer 'Picture Gallery' Issue, 1/72, 610-50

Plastic Model Kit,   Box Condition: Good++

Hawk Supermarine Swift K-4 - One Piece Box Issue, 1/72, 607

Plastic Model Kit,   Box Condition: Good++

$59   

Rare one-piece 'flip top' box issue from the late 1940s/early 1950s. Very cleanly molded kit that builds very nicely. Molded in the correct gloss silver with green-tinted clear canopy. The kit has never been started. Inventoried 100% complete including decals and instructions. The Swift was a very early jet fighter to replace the Supermarine Attacker. A very capable aircraft, the Swift suffered numerous accidents early on. As a result, less than 200 were ever built and it did not see combat. It did hold a world speed record for a short time, only to have a Douglas Skyray take the record a few hours later. The problems were ironed out, but by then the Hawker Hunter was proving very capable and there was no need for the Swift and it's RAF service life was short. The most successful version was the PR variant.

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.

Hawk F-84F Thunderstreak Picture Gallery, 1/72, 606-50

Plastic Model Kit,   Box Condition: VG+

$48   

Rare early issue hardbox Hawk kit. The rare 'Picture Gallery' series was Hawk's first move away from the thin one piece boxes and to full color artwork. The artist doing this early work fell sick and Hawk needed the artwork immediately - Bill Campbell was contacted and did box art for Hawk from that point on. Hawk was a manufacturer of 1/48 constant scale solid wooden models well before plastic, but they jumped on the plastic band wagon very early. The kit is molded in the correct glossy silver with the early style stand and correct instructions and decals. Never started. Inventoried 100% complete with all parts, decals and instructions. Thanks to Jean-Claude who told me that the boxart shows a standard F-84F but in reality the model inside is of prototype YF-96A, (aka YF-84F), s/n 49-2430. this aircraft was later modified to become the YRF-84F parasite fighter in combination with GRB-36F.It is on display at the USAF Museum, Wright Patterson AFB, Ohio.

Hawk Silly Surfers Hodad Makin' The Scene With A Six Pack, 543-100

Plastic Model Kit,   Box Condition: Good-

$32   

This is the original 1964 Hawk issue, not the common reissue. Very nicely molded with base and features stupendous, smelly stogie, detailed personable pelican, finely sculptured features ("charming - debonair"!), six pack, crushed cans, clam and more. The poem on the instructions really puts this into perspective with Hodad's '...dirty hair and greasy fingernails...and messy trails.' The kit has never been started. It has been inventoried complete with all parts and includes instructions. In 1962, Bill Campbell thought that kids may be tired of the same old modeling subjects, and he created the Weird-Ohs, which lead to the Silly Surfers. Of course it was not that simple - it never is. Please read Bill's own account of the Weird-Ohs on this website. Regardless of the path, the Weird-Ohs became an overnight sensation that helped launch the 'monster' and the 'figure' phase of modeling.
