Hawk 1909 Hupmobile - Highway Classics, 1/24, 635-50

Plastic Model Kit,   Box Condition: Good

Sold   

Rare hardbox kit from 1964. Hawk did not issue many automobile kits, but when they did they chose interesting subjects. Molded in 1/24 scale in bright yellow plastic and black wheels. There has never been any assembly but NOTE there is minor and very neat painting to some small parts. The seat cushions, 'brass' parts, axles, spring, radiator, fuel tank and one wheel are painted. Quality of paint ranges from 'excellent++' to 'professional.' There is no other painting. Inventoried 100% complete including instructions. The 1909 Hupmobile was among the first cars to look 'long, low and lovely' with a racy appearance. Rarely seen now, the Hupmobile was very popular in that day due to good performance, looking a bit like a Mercer or Stutz but sporting a much lower price tag. And this kit has a very interesting history also! The molds were originally cut by Kaysun in Japan @ 1954. The kits were a huge advance over the 'Highway Miniatures' and if put side to side put the Revell offerings to shame. I do not know of other kits from Kaysun beyond the two cars. Later in the 1950s Strombecker purchased these molds and issued them in very colorful boxes. However, Strombecker discontinued all plastic kit production in the late 1950s. In 1964 Hawk somehow located these molds. Always with an eye to quality, the Mates brothers knew these were perfect kits for their expanding line of models. The called the Rambler and Hupmobile 'Highway Classics' and issued them in full color boxes that sported photos of the actual built models. There were at least three issues; one at 50 cents, one at 60 cents and one with a special case. However good the kit, the subject matter simply did not catch on and eventually the kits were withdrawn from the line. Polks Hobby Modelcraft found and purchased the molds in 1982 but did not issue the kits. In 1988 Mandrill Manufacturing purchased the Strombecker molds and it is possible these two Kaysun kits is among them.

Guillows Curtiss P-40 Warhawk - 27 inch Wingspan Gas/RC/Rubber Powered Balsa Wood Kit, 1/16, 405-500

Wood and Plastic Model Kit,   Box Condition: NM

Sold   

In rare investment-grade 'Near Mint' condition inside and out. Purchased new on May 23, 1967 in Northern Ohio. One of a very popular 1/16 scale series with a 27 and 7/8 inch wingspan. Stick-and-tissue flying model designed for gas power, radio control (RC) or rubber power. Features quality die cut balsa parts, stripwood and spars, excellent plastic nose, spinner, exhaust, radiator cowl, outer gear well parts and much more, beautiful clear vac canopy that is still like new, die-cut plywood parts for gas operation and U-Control, fully formed wheels and thrust button, rubber motor, plastic prop, metal prop shaft and hardware packet, U-Control line, metal stock, a very large decal sheet in 'new' condition, superb plans with instructions and covering tissue. The kit has not been started and is complete. 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.
