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

Plastic Model Kit,   Box Condition: Poor

$29   

First issue from the early 1950s in the one-piece box. Molded in high gloss yellow and brown. The model has not been started. Complete with instructions, decals and all parts. The earliest issues of this kit did not have decals; this one does. That dates is as late in the first release. In the 1920s through the 1940s 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. NOTE: The box is complete but has numerous tears, tape marks, tape stains etc as shown.

Hawk Boeing P-26A Peashooter - Solid Wood Model Airplane, 1/48, 17

Wood Model Kit,   Box Condition: VG+

$44   

For the advanced Hawk collector. Hawk was one of the few manufacturers making wooden kits to a constant scale of 1/48. However, the company was innovative as it quickly included injection molded accessories. This kit dates from the 1930s and contains a very nice three-dimension profile cut wooden fuselage (most manufacturers only cut them in two dimensions if at all), two dimension profile cut wings, wheel pants, rudder and elevator, completely finished wood cowl and wheels/tires, cast metal prop, sealed tube of glue, a cardstock pilot, backrest, throttle quadrant and instrument panel, full color insignia sheet, full size, well-detailed plans and two tubes of factory glass paint vials - one red and one blue. Each have the original cork stopper installed. The red one has spilled some paint on the inside of the box. The model has not been started. Inventoried 100% complete with all parts, decals and instructions. The box sides show 'Railroad Models', 'Airplane Models' and 'Boat Models' as part of the Hawk line, which probably places the date of this kit around the late 1930s.

Kyosho Cessna 172 - For R/C or Free Flight

Wood and Metal Model Kit,   Box Condition: VG

$55   

This is a Kyosho kit made and packed in Japan in the 1960s but marketed by Kayeff Inc in California. I estimate the wingspan to be about 36 inches. This is a beautiful classic kit with a high degree of prefabrication for it's day. The kit features completely precut ribs, wheel pants, firewall, elevator, rudder and many other balsa parts (thin and very thick), die-cut plywood fuselage bulkheads, formed wire main and nose landing gear, balloon tires, metal push rods (for control line linkage), a metal hardware pack that is still sealed, numerous other wood and metal parts as needed, window material, tissue covering and more. This kit has not been started. The parts are complete, with the factory sealed ones still bag sealed and many parts still wrapped with the factory Kyosho tape. NOTE: I have lost the plans to this kit. You will need to find a set of Kyosho plans to build this model.
