Hawk Curtiss Racer R3C-1 - One Piece Box Issue 1946 - (R3C1), 1/48, 600

Plastic Model Kit,   Box Condition: VG+++

$175   

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, added box artwork and molding the kit in bright yellow acetate plastic. That makes it the second issue, still from 1946, and that is this kit for sale here. The box is in very good condition with great colors. There is tape on both end flaps. The box has not been crushed or flattened, which is unusual. These came in one-piece boxes and they are not very strong. Inside, the kit has minor assembly. The fuselage 1/2s have been glued. The quality of assembly is excellent - there are no gaps and no glue showing. There is no other assembly. The kit is 100% complete with all parts. The small parts are still sealed in the 'crinkle' bag. The instructions are in as new condition. Please note that Hawk did not issue decals with this issue of this kit.

KP Marcel Bloch Aero MB-200 Bomber, 1/72, 21

Plastic Model Kit,   Box Condition: Fair+

$24   

Well detailed and cleanly molded older kit. Never started. It has been inventoried complete with all parts and includes decals and instructions. During the mid 1930s the Czech Air Force became aware of a need for a modern bomber aircraft. In order to shorten production times, they decided to look abroad for designs that could be built in-country. The French were cooperative but the bomber choices were not as the Czechs had hoped for. However, they settled on the MB-200 all metal high wing monoplane. Some copies were delivered assembled, but most were produced in state by Aero and afforded an excellent learning experience with all metal aircraft production. The airplane served well during the late 1930s, but was obsolete for WWII. The Germans distributed many to Romania and Bulgaria.
