Renwal 75mm Anti-Aircraft Gun SKYSWEEPER, 1/32, 552

Plastic Model Kit,   Box Condition: Exc

Sold   

Fantastic kit with 134 parts and a Combat Crew of 5. Kit has almost all the moving features of the real weapon.

The gun system was radar controlled and fully mobile. It could be set up on any terrain and ready to fire in 2 minutes. The unit was considered very advanced an complex at the time; it took army maintenance crews 37 weeks each to train on the system at Aberdeen. Never started.

Hawk Supermarine S6B, 1/48, 700

Plastic Model Kit,   Box Condition: Good-

Sold   

Very rare kit for the advanced collector. 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 changed the Curtiss box to two colors and added box artwork while molding the kit is 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. Hawk made the switch to polystyrene in 1949. This kit is the one in polystyrene in about 1950 but is evidently the second box art issue as the first one showed an aircraft in the air and on the water. Like the first issue, this is a one-piece 'flip-top' box. The box is only in fair condition - there is significant wear and clear tape - but the kit inside has never been started and is in mint condition.

Still factory sealed. The Buccaneer was the world's first purpose designed low level 'below the radar' bomber.

Solido Nord Griffon II - Bagged Kit - No Box, 1/54

Plastic Model Kit,   Box Condition: No Box

Sold   

Bagged kit - Box is not included and is shown for reference only. Very rare kit of the unusual Mach 2+ ramjet/turbojet design. Solido produced a small line of plastic kits in the early 1960s but by 1967 all production ended. Very cleanly molded and large 1/54 scale kit in sliver, black, clear and red plastic. Decals and instructions are excellent. NOTE: the kit has minor assembly. The two engine 1/2s have been neatly assembled. Quality of assembly is excellent with no gaps and no glue showing. There is no other assembly. The kit is missing the stand and red missile - otherwise it is complete with all other parts, decals and instructions. Shipping insurance is required with this kit. The Griffon was dual propulsion like the Leduc 022; a turbojet was used for takeoff and got the airplane to speed, where the ramjet took over. The Griffon performed well, reaching a top speed of Mach 2.19 in 1958. However, there were difficulties with the ramjet design. The program was canceled in favor of the Mirage family of fighters by Dassault.
