Hawk 1959 Studebaker Lark Daytona Convertible or Coupe - General Mills Trix Cereal Premium Issue, 1/32, 630-631

Plastic Model Kit,   Box Condition: Exc+

Sold   

Very rare. This is a General Mills premium of the scale Hawk Lark kit, which can be built as a coupe or convertible and is motorized with a unique rubber band drive which includes the winder. The model is molded in gloss dark red and silver plastic, has never been started, and is inventoried 100% complete with all parts and instructions, right down to the original rubber bands (2 lengths) and a letter from the General Mills Executive Offices apologizing that they decided not to include the small glue capsule - due to a fear that smaller children may think it was candy or a pill and eat it. And if you were unhappy, you could return the kit and get your original 10 cents back along with the cost of postage! The kit is in the original mailing box that it came in. This was a Trix piece as the instructions include the fact that your 'Trix Trailer' can be hooked right up to the Lark, and that the Lark rubber motor has plenty of power to pull them both! (The trailer was inside Trix and not included with the kit.) A great piece for the advanced collector.

Guillows Rumpler C5 - (C-V) 24 inch Wingspan RC/Gas/Rubber Kit, 206

Wood Model Kit,   Box Condition: Good

Sold   

Large-scale, well detailed kit and one of the harder Guillow's kits to find. Can be flown rubber free flight, gas free flight, or converted to electric RC using modern small, light servos and receivers. Well detailed with scale plastic wheels, plastic propeller, vacuform nose/cowl and engine, full color decals, colored tissue, die cut balsa parts, rubber motor, plywood firewall and excellent full size plans. The kit has never been started. It has been inventoried complete with all parts and includes decals and instructions. Guillow's founder, Paul K. Guillow, was a WWI naval aviator. In 1926 he began producing wooden model airplane kits. His 'Shelf Models' were some of the earlier non-flying models in production. Guillow's grew during the model boom of the 1930s, and when the Depression hit the hardest, Guillow's responded with lower prices and became one of the low price leaders, frequently advertising in Model Airplane News and other leading publications. During the war, like most manufacturers, Guillow's was forced to alternative materials such as cardboard and pine. Guillow's survived the post WWII slump by creating many inexpensive profile flying rubber powered aircraft and gliders in the 1950s (along with North Pacific) which became famous - some are still available today. The stick and tissue lines have been updated with laser cut parts and are still in production as of 2009.

Aurora P-38 Lightning, 1/48, 99-98

Plastic Model Kit,   Box Condition: Exc

Sold   

Very rare. Of all the P-38 variants, this one seems to turn up the least. I even doubted the existence of it for a time. This would be the fourth issue and is most likely from 1957. It uses the same artwork as the 1955/56 Third issue, but Aurora dropped the rectangular 'Aurora Line' logo and Famous Fighters of All Nations logo. Molded in a very high gloss olive drab and clear, with the correct clear two-piece 'World' triangle based stand. Inventoried 100% complete with all parts, exceptional condition decals and instructions. As with typical with Aurora, they used the 1956 instructions, replaced the old logo with the new, added the Parent's Magazine seal but left an illustration of the old stand (for which 1956 was the last year).

Hawk Lockheed U-2 Spyplane, 1/48, 209-200

Plastic Model Kit,   Box Condition: Near Mint

Sold   

Dated 1962 and most likely the very first issue because it is a hardbox and has the price prefix on the kit number. The box is in investment-grade 'near mint' condition and is the finest one I have seen. Very light general wear is the only flaw. From the mid 1960s with Bill Campbell artwork. Features good detail including fine raised panel lines, 'good' cockpit with pilot, two piece canopy that can be displayed opened or closed, full landing gear and outriggers, standing pilot, optional position air brakes, optional antenna and 'sniffer' pod, decals and 22 inch wingspan. This kit is actually the basis for the Testors U-2 variants in this same scale. Molded in a very dark blue and clear with a large gold stand. The kit has never been started. It has been inventoried complete with all parts and includes decals and instructions.

Hawk Laird Solution 1930s Racer - One-Piece Box, 1/48, 603

Plastic Model Kit,   Box Condition: Exc+++

Sold   

Very rare. For the advanced model collector. This is a model kit with 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 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. This kit is the one in bright yellow acetate and is from 1948. (Hawk went to polystyrene in 1949). The box is in excellent condition with great colors. The box has not been crushed, bent or flattened, which is unusual since this type of box is not very strong. Inside, the kit has never been started. The model is 100% complete with all parts. The instructions are in excellent condition. Please note that Hawk did not issue decals with this issue of this kit.

MPM Hansa Brandenburg W-29 Of Friedrich Christiansen - (W.29), 1/72, 72058

Plastic Model Kit,   Box Condition: Good+

Sold   

Accurate model of Friedrich Christiansen's aircraft. Includes photetched parts. The kit has never been started. The parts are still in the internal factory sealed bags and includes decals and instructions. Ob erleutnant zu See Friedrich Christiansen is one of the best known German Naval Aviators. He was born on December 12, 1879 in Wyk-on-Fohr and the son of a sea captain. He was captivated by flying and earned his pilot's license in March of 1914. He became and instructor and was called up as a naval aviator in August at the 'old' age of 35. In September 1917 he took command of the Naval Air Station Zeebrugge and by December 11 he was awarded the Blue Max (Pour le Merite). Friedrich flew over 440 operational missions including raids on Dover and Ramsgate, rescue sorties, shipping attacks and more. He achieved at least 13 victories - including one submarine and one airship, but some sources credit him with as many as 27 victories. At least six of his victories were achieved as the commanding observer of the HB W.29. On July 4, 1918, he claimed two Felixstowe F2A flying boats as his first W.29 confirmed victories. After the war he rejoined the navy and became a pilot for Dornier, flying the world-famous DO-X, then easily the largest seaplane in the world. One of my relatives met the aircraft on it's South and North American tour. She was a waitress and she with a friend were selected to provide the food for a lunch on board the DO-X in Miami. The Germans contracted with the restaurant that employed her for the food, but wanted it served on the special and unique DO-X china, made just for this aircraft. My relative and her friend 'liberated' two medium size bread plates - one of which I received back in the late 1990s. Always underpowered and short on range, the flying boats were retired but one survived the scrap yard and found a home in the 1930s in the Berlin Air Museum, but it and the remaining china was destroyed in a Allied air raid.

Aurora Boeing 737 PSA, 1/72, 387

Plastic Model Kit,   Box Condition: Good

Sold   

1974 block letter 'AURORA' logo issue. This is still the only 1/72 scale injection molded 737 kit to ever be made. Includes clear cockpit windows, full landing gear, display stand and a large PSA decal sheet. The kit has never been started. Inventoried 100% complete including decals and instructions. NOTE: the decals are neatly cut in half because they were stored separately, flat in plastic, in a filing cabinet and in a climate controlled location- and they would not have fit unless cut as such. The box displays better than the 'good' rating but is graded as such because there are closed splits on the sides that are taped closed.
