Hawk Howard Ike Air Racer - One Piece Box Issue 1949, 1/48, 602

Plastic Model Kit,   Box Condition: Exc

$59   

Rare early one piece box issue from the 1949. Hawk was a very innovative model company that went into business in the 1920s with model aircraft made from wood with metal detail parts. Hawk also made ship and train models in this fashion. It is thought that the first injection molded aircraft kits in the United States were made by Varney in 1946, but they did not catch on quickly. Hawk was always an innovative and quality-driven company, and they took a gamble on injection molded kit well before they were popular. As early as 1946 they issued the 1/48 Curtiss R3C-1 with wheels. This may have been the first plastic airplane kit in the USA. Like Varney's Fleet Sub and PT-17, they were shunned by hobby dealers. Hawk persisted with the 'Evolution of the Jet' gift set in 1948. In 1948, they also issued the four racer kits - the Supermarine S6B, Gee-Bee, Howard Ike and Laird all in Acetate. The F-84G and Constellation were also issued but were the first Hawk kits molded in polystyrene. All were in the two-tone one-piece flip box or straight one piece box with opening ends like this one. This is the 1949 polystyrene issue. This model is molded in the correct glossy white with a unique early stand. The model was issued with instructions but did not come with decals. The instructions tell you that 'All license numbers are gold outlined in black'. The kit has never been started. The contents have been inventoried 100% complete with all parts and instructions.

Aurora Boeing KC-135 Stratotanker, 1/125, 143-130

Plastic Model Kit,   Box Condition: Sealed Mint

$79   

Still mint in the factory seal. Dated 1963 and from the larger (1/125 scale) of the two ex-Comet molds. Kit features cockpit and cabin clear windows and full landing gear and a 'tanker' rear end and flying boom (although the box art does not show it). Molded in gloss gray and clear. This model was given a clear Aurora two piece 'triangle world' stand, unlike many of the other Comet kits which only had a modified version of their original stands included. Of course this is not the production KC-135 but a model of the Boeing prototype.

Wood Model Kit,   Box Condition: Good+

$95   

Very Rare. From about 1943/44. Burkard kits almost never show up on the open market. They were exceptional solid wood display models for their time - highly prefabricated and very large scale. This one includes all the parts to build it as a land or seaplane and features a 16.7 inch wingspan, precut fuselage with sandwich construction, precut wings and stabilizers, beautiful pre-cut hardwood floats, fully formed wheels, other wood parts as required, die-cut heavy cardstock sheet with twin rudders and 16 water tight inspection hatches, clear front and rear canopy material , full color insignia sheet, two glass bottles (one of glue and one of dope paint) and 'excellent' condition full size plans with building instructions and cut out instrument panels for the cockpits.

AMT 1964 Ford Thunderbird 2 Door Hardtop Promo With Original Box, 1/25

Plastic Model Kit,   Box Condition: Good+

$79   

Very rare promotional in superb condition and includes the original box. The box is stamped "T-BIRD - HT RANGOON RED" on the bottom. The model was obtained on March 1, 1965 by a discriminating adult collector in Lexington KY. The promo has never even been displayed - it has been in the box wrapped with factory tissue since it left the factory. The color and gloss are factory new, but there are some box scuffs on the roof. The chrome is 'near mint.' There is no body warp and the clear is in 'excellent++' condition. I would grade this one 9 out of 10 with 10 flawless. The deduction is for the roof scuffs. The original box is complete and 'good+' with general age spotting.

Air Lines Hawker Sea Fury - (ex-Frog), 1/72, 4903

Plastic Model Kit,   Box Condition: VG+

$22   

Very finely molded in silver. Features separately molded ailerons, elevators and rudder. The kit has never been started. It has been inventoried complete with all parts and includes decals and instructions. Air Lines kits are all Frog molds that the Lines Brothers imported to the USA between 1964-1966. The kits, decals and instructions were made in England, then imported to the USA where Testors created the boxes with the colorful trading cards on the back. There are one or two trading cards on each box which show the boxart but not the advertising/logo. Some kits contain a Testors color painting guide also, but it is not specific to any model.
