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.

Pyro Chevrolet 1937 Custom Convertible, 1/32, C299-50

Plastic Model Kit,   Box Condition: Exc-

$39   

Late 1960s Pyro issue from original molds. In the early to mid 1960s the Pyro company chose many of it's kit subjects based more on historical significance than popularity. Luckily for us, Pyro not only made these kits but did an excellent job for the time. The Pyro car models are based on the actual cars that Pyro engineers and designers had access to. This model is nicely detailed and has a tree of chrome parts and clear parts also. The box states that it can be converted to a 'road racing' or slot car. Never started. Factory sealed bag or inventoried 100% complete with all parts and instructions. NOTE: one very small bumper brace on the body has broken off and missing - the other side is intact so one can be scratch built from stock plastic.

Guillows Cessna L-19 Bird Dog - 18 inch Wingspan Flying Model, 50-3

Wood Model Kit,   Box Condition: Good

$28   

The plans are dated 1954. Nice smaller kit features Includes die cut balsa parts, vacuform nose, plastic wheels & propeller, hardware (prop shaft, bearing), vacuform clear canopy and windows, insignia (on the plans) and full size plans with building instructions. The model has not been started. Inventoried 100% complete with all parts and instructions. Guillow's founder, Paul K. Guillow, was a WWI naval aviator. In 1926 he began producing wooden model airplane kits. His 'Shelf Models' were some of the earlier non-flying models in production. Guillow's grew during the model boom of the 1930s, and when the Depression hit the hardest, Guillow's responded with lower prices and became one of the low price leaders, frequently advertising in Model Airplane News and other leading publications. During the war, like most manufacturers, Guillow's was forced to alternative materials such as cardboard and pine. Guillow's survived the post WWII slump by creating many inexpensive profile flying rubber powered aircraft and gliders in the 1950s (along with North Pacific) which became famous - some are still available today. The stick and tissue lines have been updated with laser cut parts and are still in production as of 2009.

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.

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.
