Hawk F-84F Thunderstreak Picture Gallery, 1/72, 606-50

Plastic Model Kit,   Box Condition: VG+

$48   

Rare early issue hardbox Hawk kit. The rare 'Picture Gallery' series was Hawk's first move away from the thin one piece boxes and to full color artwork. The artist doing this early work fell sick and Hawk needed the artwork immediately - Bill Campbell was contacted and did box art for Hawk from that point on. Hawk was a manufacturer of 1/48 constant scale solid wooden models well before plastic, but they jumped on the plastic band wagon very early. The kit is molded in the correct glossy silver with the early style stand and correct instructions and decals. Never started. Inventoried 100% complete with all parts, decals and instructions. Thanks to Jean-Claude who told me that the boxart shows a standard F-84F but in reality the model inside is of prototype YF-96A, (aka YF-84F), s/n 49-2430. this aircraft was later modified to become the YRF-84F parasite fighter in combination with GRB-36F.It is on display at the USAF Museum, Wright Patterson AFB, Ohio.

Hawk Spad C-13 Picture Gallery, 1/48, 705-69

Plastic Model Kit,   Box Condition: Exc

$49   

Hard-to-find kit from the mid 1950s. The 'Picture Galley' issues had a colorful but short life. When Hawk moved from wooden kits to injection molded kits, they utilized the one piece 'flip top' boxes with one or two color printing. Sales were initially poor. Realizing that more color was needed, they went to the 'hardbox' design, which was medium weight cardboard with a colorful litho 'slick' glued to it. The litho slick allowed more colors to be used, so Hawk sought out an artist who began painting Hawk's first hardbox artwork - the Picture Gallery. After a short period of time, however, the artist became ill- hence the short production run. Artist Bill Campbell was contracted to fill his shoes. Hawk was so happy that Bill was used from that point on with other artists as well. Molded in gloss dark green. Includes early correct decals and instructions showing slightly different part design that was utilized at this stage. The kit has never been started. Internal factory sealed bag or inventoried 100% complete including decals and instructions.
