Lindberg Caravelle French Jet Airliner - With Full Interior and Engines and Transparent Fuselage and Cowling - Cellovision Issue, 1/96, 553-149

Plastic Model Kit,   Box Condition: Poor

$169   

From the 1950s. First issue of this rare kit with beautiful Ray Gaedke box art of an Air France Caravelle departing over downtown Paris. The model is loaded with unique features. It can be built as a large scale non-visible or visible model with full interior. Features one clear fuselage 1/2 and one clear engine cowl, complete passenger compartment and cockpit, mens/womens bathrooms, passengers, pilots and hostess, retracting landing gear, movable wing flaps, moving control surfaces, jet engine, boarding ramp and display stand. Never started. Inventoried 100% complete with all parts, decals and instructions. Includes Air France decals. Please NOTE: the box looks much better than the grade, but is graded as 'poor' because it has been cut on the back along one long and one short side, as well as having other general wear and shorter closed tears. The later hardbox issue included United Air Lines, since United once bought the Caravelle for North American routes.

Hawk 1902 Rambler Model C Runabout - Highway Classics, 1/24, 634-60

Plastic Model Kit,   Box Condition: Good

$79   

Rare kit dated 1964. Hawk did not issue many automobile kits, but when they did they chose interesting subjects. 1/24 scale and molded in silver plastic with black wheels. The kit has never been started. Inventoried 100% complete including instructions. This is a very early car with an interesting history. The 1902 Rambler was the first car offered for sale by the Thomas B. Jeffery Company. This later became Nash Motors, which was then later purchased to become part of American Motors. The Model C had a one cylinder 8 HP engine and could speed along at 25 mph. Originally it had wire wheels, but these proved too fragile for the state of roads in the very early 1900s - the company soon changed these to wooden spoke wheels, which are represented on this model. The car had tiller steering and brakes on the rear wheel only. And this kit has a very interesting history also! The molds were originally cut by Kaysun in Japan @ 1954. The kits were a huge advance over the 'Highway Miniatures' and if put side to side put the Revell offerings to shame. I do not know of other kits from Kaysun beyond the two cars. Later in the 1950s Strombecker purchased these molds and issued them in very colorful boxes. However, Strombecker discontinued all plastic kit production in the late 1950s. In 1964 Hawk somehow located these molds. Always with an eye to quality, the Mates brothers knew these were perfect kits for their expanding line of models. The called the Rambler and Hupmobile 'Highway Classics' and issued them in full color boxes that sported photos of the actual built models. There were at least three issues; one at 50 cents, one at 60 cents and one with a special case. However good the kit, the subject matter simply did not catch on and eventually the kits were withdrawn from the line. Polks Hobby Modelcraft found and purchased the molds in 1982 but did not issue the kits. In 1988 Mandrill Manufacturing purchased the Strombecker molds and it is possible these two Kaysun kits is among them.

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

Plastic Model Kit,   Box Condition: Exc+

$65   

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.

Plastic Model Kit,   Box Condition: Sealed VG++

$34   

Sale Pending
Email for availability.

Still factory sealed. Has numerous features, but since I can't read Japanese, I will take a guess from the photos - so don't hold me to this. It appears that the suspension can be built one of three ways and that the headlights and tail lights operate. There is a detailed interior, removable clear T Tops and a detailed (molded) underside.
