Hawk Nieuport 17 - Flip-Top Box Issue, 1/48, 706

Plastic Model Kit,   Box Condition: Exc+++

$48   

First issue from the 1950s in the one-piece box. The box is in excellent condition. Inside, the kit parts are still sealed in the original factory crinkle bag. Molded in high gloss yellow and black. In the 1920s/30/s/40s Hawk made constant scale 1/48 aircraft kits from wood. In 1946 they added plastic injection molded kits to the line and were possibly the first injection molded kit manufacturer in the USA. When Hawk made an early jump to all-plastic kits they kept the 1/48 scale and created these new one-piece boxes with two color artwork. The model has not been started. Complete with instructions and all parts. This is from the early part of the first issue, and Hawk did not issue decals until later.

Never started. The parts are either inventoried 100% complete or still in the internal factory sealed bag. Includes decals and instructions. From Dusty Rhodes - "The lively fuselage and nose art seen on the box art aircraft commemorates the historic rivalry between the Italian 12th Bomber Squadron (badge = three mice) and the 51st Fighter Squadron (badge = black cat). It particularly refers to a 1938 exercise in which the 51st's G-50s successfully intercepted a simulated attack by the 12th's SM-79s. Prior to the introduction of the G.50, the SM79s had easily outpaced the Cr-32s flown by the 'cats.'"

Plastic Model Kit,   Box Condition: Sealed Exc+

Amazingly rare factory sealed first issue from the early 1950s. This is the first time I have seen this kit factory sealed. Box color and gloss are as new and the box grades a very strong 'Excellent+' overall. It displays as "Near Mint++" but I have graded it lower because there is a small (1/2" x 1/8") litho pull on the lower long side and some very light wear. The kit features movable ailerons, elevators and rudder, 'good' cockpit for that time, pilot figure and rotating wheels and propeller.
