Plastic Model Kit,   Box Condition: VG+

$32   

1960 hardbox issue with artwork by Bill Campbell. The Gee Bee was designed and built by Granville Brothers Aircraft Inc. of Springfield, Massachusetts. The radical design has a wingspan of only 25 feet and a length of 19 feet and 9 inches. The power plant was a supercharged Pratt & Whitney Wasp with an output of 800 hp through a Smith controllable-pitch propeller. Designed specifically to win air races and set speed records, the Gee Bee was a very fast but aerodynamically unstable aircraft. It's most famous pilot, Jimmy Doolittle, flew the ship to victory then walked away, saying that he would never fly it again. Many lost their lives in this legendary but unforgiving aircraft.

Hawk Supermarine Swift, 1/72, 607

Plastic Model Kit,   Box Condition: Good++

$24   

Very cleanly molded kit that builds very nicely. The model has excellent fit and recessed and raised panel lines. Can be assembled with or without landing gear. The kit has never been started. It has been inventoried complete with all parts and includes decals and instructions. The Swift was a very early jet fighter to replace the Supermarine Attacker. A very capable aircraft, the Swift suffered numerous accidents early on. As a result, less than 200 were ever built and it did not see combat. It did hold a world speed record for a short time, only to have a Douglas Skyray take the record a few hours later. The problems were ironed out, but by then the Hawker Hunter was proving very capable and there was no need for the Swift and it's RAF service life was short. The most successful version was the PR variant.

Hawk Mig-15, 1/48, 707

Plastic Model Kit,   Box Condition: NM+

$125   

Very rare early injection molded kit. This kit is from 1952, so it was made at the same time that the Gowland & Gowland 'Highway Pioneers' were released. Hawk was a producer of wooden kits ( with metal or plastic details) before and after WWII, and was one of the handful of manufacturers to produce such kits (known as 'solids') in a consistent 1/48 scale. Hawk made aircraft, ship and train models in this fashion. The very first injection molded aircraft kits in the United States may have been made by Varney in 1946, but 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 may have issued the 1/48 Curtiss R3C-1 with wheels and in 1948 the 'Evolution of the Jet' gift set. In 1949, they issued several kits - the Supermarine S6B, Gee-Bee, Howard Ike, F-84G and the Constellation. In 1952, the Mig-15 was released in 1/48. As with the previous kits, this is in the Hawk two-tone one-piece flip box. This model is molded in the correct glossy silver with a unique early stand. Molded in gloss silver and green-tinted clear. The box is in exceptional condition. The kit has never been started. The contents have been inventoried 100% complete with all parts, decals and instructions.
