  Hawk Model Kits

Hawk F4D Skyray Triangle Box, 1/72, 402

Plastic Model Kit,   Box Condition: Good+

$135   

Rare Triangle Box issue from about 1957/58. As a marketing experiment, Hawk tried this novel and colorful box only with the Skyray. Dealers found it difficult to stack with other kits and it was discontinued. Molded in correct gloss white with a green-tinted clear canopy and brown pilot. Never started. Inventoried 100% complete with all parts, decals and instructions. This box rates as 'good.' It is completely solid and free of repairs but has general wear and left upper corner damage as shown. Luckily, it is missing the factory tape seals that are usually across the top corners.

Hawk Mitsubishi Zero Fighter - Solid Wood Airplane Model, 1/48, 91

Wood Model Kit,   Box Condition: Exc++

$44   

This kit was found in the stock room of a long-closed hobby shop. For the advanced collector. The box has like-new color and gloss and only light wear and spotting as shown as the only flaws. Hawk was one of the few manufactures making wooden kits to a constant scale of 1/48 in the 1930s. Hawk kits were very complete and included metal details and superb quality drawings for the true scale enthusiast. This kit dates from early 1940s but still has the Hawk product line of railroad, airplane and ship models described on the box side. The model contains profile precarved wooden main fuselage, wings, rudder and elevator, turned cowling, wooden stock as needed, pre-carved wheels, plastic three-blade propeller, color insignia sheet, sandpaper and full size well-detailed plans and the original factory tissue paper. It also includes a nice fold-out paper called a 'Hawk Educational Sheet' on how and aircraft works (dated 1943). The model has not been started and is 100% complete.

Plastic Model Kit,   Box Condition: Good++

$38   

Late 1950s hardbox issue with great Bill Campbell artwork. Includes drop tanks and very colorful decals for the plane shown on the box. Never started. Inventoried 100% complete with all parts, decals and instructions. NOTE: the right 1/5 of the decal sheet has a stain on the backing paper (but not on the transfers) and one triangle fin for the drop tank is a different color of plastic. It is from a later issue of this same kit.

Hawk Laird Solution Racer - with Racing Pylon Stand, 1/48, 628-50

Plastic Model Kit,   Box Condition: Good++

Includes Pylon Racing Stand that is ideal for a 1930 Racing Diorama. Never started. Inventoried with all parts, decals and instructions present. The Laird Solution won the first official Thompson Trophy Race in 1930 at the Curtiss-Wright Reynolds Airport in Chicago. The Laird was the only Biplane to win the Thompson and it beat all the military aircraft. Charles 'Speed' Holman was the pilot and was the first civilian to attain a speed over 200 mph in a closed course event nationally. E. M. Laird Airplane Company built the aircraft for BF Goodrich. Construction began only 3 weeks before the race. There was only one 10 minute trial flight before the aircraft won the race.

Hawk F4U-1D Corsair (F4U1D) Picture Gallery, 1/72, 604-50

Plastic Model Kit,   Box Condition: Exc+

$36   

Very early issue with 'Picture Gallery' box artwork, solid one-piece wing, no landing gear, green tinted canopy, early instructions and 2 piece stand marked 'Corsair.' The artist producing the Picture Gallery series fell very ill. Hawk had to switch artist in a hurry and chose Bill Campbell. Bill did the art from that point forward, making the limited issue PG boxes very desirable for collectors. The kit has never been started. It has been inventoried complete with all parts and includes decals and instructions.

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.

Plastic Model Kit,   Box Condition: VG

$125   

Rare. This model is from 1956 and features the aircraft in the vivid colors there were originally released in. It also features the R3C-1 with landing gear; later issues had the molds modified to make it a floatplane. The Gee Bee is molded in bright gloss red, the Laird Solution in gloss dark yellow, the Ike in bright white and the R3C-1 in a brilliant light yellow. Inside, the kits have not been started. Two kits are still sealed in the original stapled bags and the other two have been inventoried complete. This is the early issue of this kit with a one-piece instruction sheet for all four aircraft and no decals. The instructions tell the builder what color to paint the raised insignia. Please recall that the earliest issues of these four aircraft did not have decals either and that is correct.

Hawk Curtiss Racer R3C-1 - One Piece Box Issue 1949 - (R3C1), 1/48, 600

Plastic Model Kit,   Box Condition: Exc

$75   

For the advanced model collector. This is a model kit with a fascinating history as it may be among the very first 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 and metal 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 princely sum of $25 each. The Mates brothers, who founded and ran Hawk, were quick to incorporate this new technology by adding 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 kit, like Varney's PT-17, met a very cool reception at hobby shops. Hawk quickly changed the box to two colors and added box artwork while molding the kit is bright yellow acetate. That was the second issue, still from 1946. By 1948/49 Hawk was using injection molded styrene plastic and still molding it in high-gloss yellow - that is this kit, the third issue. Other than the material, there are subtle changes to the box. It is still one piece but much larger, has much simpler (and larger) text on the end flaps and the box top says "All Plastic Airplane Assembly Kit" (instead of "...Construction Kit"). The box is in excellent condition with great colors. The box has not been crushed or flattened, which is unusual as the box was not very strong. Inside, the kit has never been started and has been inventoried 100% complete with all parts and instructions. The instructions are in excellent condition. Please note that Hawk did not issue decals with this issue of this kit.
