Model kits were not their primary business but an important sideline and they established an early international presence. Major countries of distribution were Hong Kong, Great Britain, New Zealand and Australia. Through specialty hobby shops, they often found their way to the West Coast of the USA. As early as 1956 Lincoln reissued about 16 Hawk kits from the USA, often with 'Picture Gallery' artwork. Although not their primary business, they established quite a line of plastic before discontinuing production in the late 1960s/early 1970s. Many molds moved to Kader, also in Hong Kong, who reissued the line. Some molds eventually found their way to the USA either through ATP (who purchased the excess kit stock when Kader sold out) or IM.

Plastic Model Kit,   Box Condition: Fair

$29   

Rare Arii model from the 1960s. The box is complete and intact but has the obvious stains as shown.

The parts are still in the internal factory sealed bags and includes decals and instructions.
