This kit models the famous winner of the 1908 New York to Paris Race. Originally, the Thomas Motor Company was building bicycles in the 1890s as so may other automakers did. Erwin Ross Thomas, the founder, was experimenting with high speed gasoline engines. From 1898 to 1900 they built commercial engines and gasoline powered tricycles. Then Thomas moved to motorcycles, creating the "Auto-Bi", which was the first practical motorcycle commercially built in the USA. By 1902 he was the largest manufacture of motorcycles. Very shortly after this, the first Thomas Car, the "Buffalo Junior" was produced and 100 sold the first year. The Thomas was originally an advanced car and well known for it's high speed. In 1906, E.R. Thomas entered his cars in the Vanderbilt Cup and Glidden Trophy. The Thomas completed the 2000 mile tour without any mechanical adjustments. That year saw further race victories. In 1907 Thomas had several models with a new four cylinder engine; the G70 from that year was known as the fastest production car in the world. At this time, Rolls-Royce made some public statements about the superiority of the 6 cylinder engine. This caused E.R. Thomas to challenge Rolls Royce to a race from NY to Chicago - Rolls Royce, however, backed out. But four European manufacturers took Thomas up on his challenge, and the Paris newspaper Le Matin sponsored the great event for 1908. This race laid a course from Buffalo, NY to San Francisco, then to Alaska down the Yukon across the Bering Strait on ice, then rerouted to Japan due the thaw, to Siberia and then across Europe to Paris. The Thomas entry was a stock Touring car with George Schuster as the driver. After 169 days and 21,000 miles, the Thomas was the winner. Today it is still considered the greatest automobile race ever.

Hawk Supermarine S.6B - Acetate 1948 One Piece Box Issue - (S6B), 1/48, 700

Plastic Model Kit,   Box Condition: Good-

Sold   

For the advanced model collector. This is the first issue in acetate from 1948. The acetate is a high-gloss medium gray and has only the tiniest amount of warping. All parts fit together perfectly with very little pressure.. This is very unusual as acetate usually warps badly. The kit has never been started. The small parts are still factory sealed in the clear 'krinkle' bag and the big parts that were never factory sealed have been inventoried complete. The instructions are in 'very good+' condition and are the rare, original first issue with text only and no illustrations. One side of the box is 'Good+' (as shown in the photo) and the other side is only 'Good-.' There are neatly done internal repairs and two small price tags on one side - hence the overall 'good-' grade. All end flaps are present and attached, but two are internally taped into place. The box has not been crushed, bent or flattened, which is unusual, as the one-piece boxes were not very strong. Please note that Hawk did not issue decals or a clear windscreen with the first issue of this kit. This model has 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 added two-color art work to the Curtiss box and molded the kit in 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 of the early acetate examples from 1948. (Hawk made the switch to polystyrene in 1949.)

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

Plastic Model Kit,   Box Condition: Exc

Sold   

For the advanced model collector. This is the second issue of the famous Hawk Curtiss Racer. It is molded in and amazingly high-gloss yellow acetate plastic. The parts are not warped, which is amazing as acetate is known for warping. The instructions are the correct second issue which are dated October 4, 1946 and Phillip Mates' (reproduced) signature is on the instructions. The kit has never been started and the parts are like new. All the small yellow parts are still factory sealed in the original 'krinkle' bag. The few large parts that were never sealed (fuselage halves and two wings) are in perfect condition and complete. The instructions are complete and only have moderate yellowing; however, there are closed splits on the folds and edge wear on the lower side with several closed, short tears. Please note that Hawk did not furnish decals with these earlier kits. The box is only in 'fair' condition with wear and stains. I have shown the best side in the photo. The other side has a larger and darker stain plus a piece of maksing tape on the end Please note that Hawk did not furnish decals with this issue of this kit. 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.

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 molded the kit in bright yellow acetate. That was the second issue, (this model for sale and pictured) still from 1946. By 1948/49 Hawk was using injection molded styrene plastic.

Monogram White Wall Drag Slicks - Custom Accessories For 1/8 Scale Cars, 1/8, AK206-100

Plastic Model Kit,   Box Condition: Good

Sold   

Very rare and dated 1963. First and only Four-Star issue of this rare accessory for customizing and of Monogram's large 1/8 car kits or any other larger car kit. Includes one pair of M&H Racemaster Dragster 8:00-15 white sidewall drag slicks molded in a rubber-like plastic, hollow and flexible. The tires and their whitewalls are mint, as they left the factory. Never used and complete with instructions. The clear cellophane window on the back is in mint condition. In an attempt to make the superb but very expensive 1/8 car molds pay off, Monogram issued some parts separately as accessories for any larger car models. The entire line came out in 1963 and consisted of AK201-59 Six Carb Assembly, AK202-59 Oval Gas Tank, AK203-79 Drag Race Set, AK204-79 GMC Blower Set, AK205-79 Chrome Wheel Set, AK206-100 White Wall Drag Slicks and AK207-79 White Wall Tires. Sales were very weak because all of the 1/8 scale car kits were very expensive for that time, so and the line was discontinued.
