Wood Model Kit, Box Condition: VG+

Features all pre-cut wooden main parts (fuselage, wings, wheels and vertical & horizontal stabilizers), wood stock as required, insignia sheet and full-size plans that include cross sections for templates. Never started and complete. Hawk was one of the few manufacturers making wooden kits to a constant scale of 1/48 (and sometimes smaller) in the 1930s. Hawk kits were very complete and included metal details and superb quality drawings for the true scale enthusiast. Before the plastic age there was a product line of railroad, airplane and ship models which are advertised on the side of this box.

Yes-the entire engine and transmission are missing.

Box is worn and stained, but the kit inside is like new. Same as the Testors issue, as Italaerei originally made the molds. Nicely detailed kit with a very fine fabric texture, full cockpit, complete interior including troop benches, wheels and skids and two paratroopers. Has markings for all three aircraft. Never started. Factory sealed bag with decals and instructions. Decals are 'near mint' as are the instructions. The Waco CG-4 was designed and initially built by Waco Aircraft Company of Troy, OH. It first saw action in Sicily and the operation was termed a disaster. This likely had more to do with planning than the actual glider. Missions in Europe, including D-Day, went much better. The glider was even deployed to Burma. It could carry up to 13 troops, or a jeep and four men, or a 75mm Field Gun.

Rare and likely from the late 1970s. One of at least two Kemziv issues, and probably the earliest of the two known. Large almost 1/48 scale kit of the popular and successful AN-2, the world's largest single engined biplane. The model has never been started and all parts are still sealed in the factory 'krinkle' clear plastic bags. Includes color insignia sheet and full instructions. The insignia are CCCP and Aeroflot for a civil AN-2 transport. This model is the Ex-MEE 1/50 AN-2 kit that was sold as a built up display model and a kit. Production ended at MEE in about 1984. Some molds passed to Genton at that point, and obviously Kemziv got them at some point. Thanks to Tom Marino for help on this.
