  • Vintage 1/32 HAWK Model Kits: Chaparral II / Maseratti 5000 GT

    FYI...Saw these on eBay.
    Starting bid is $9.95 with no bidders so far.
    Seem like "good bones" for a slot car project.

    Not my listing, just another "HRW public service announcement".

    Dang! I just bought that Chaparral II on eBay for a pretty penny. I gifted the one I used to have to a friend many years ago.

      Just an FYI,....... both of the Hawk kits shown, are the early version kits.......solid 1 piece plastic wheels and tires , and no "Glass" for either car.

      The later series (same body mold) did come with black vinyl tires, separate wheels, and clear windshields,.......while the wheels/tires are not an issue for "slotisizing" either car, the lack of a windshield sure makes a difference.

        Both of mine must have been later issues. They each came with a clear plastic windshield, vinyl tires and separate plastic wheels. They also each included a standing driver figure. The one I just purchased is molded in an almost translucent white. It's not quite opaque. I thought the one I gifted years ago was opaque, but I may be incorrect about that. I'm going off a years-old memory. Anyway, good info to know. Thanks Chris.

      We bought these off the shelf in the local slot car shop and hobby store for 99 cents or less, back in the day. Glad I kept one of each for the collection, because the asking prices today are getting a bit out of hand, to say the least. Not super detailed kits, but a great starting point for slot car bodies. Hope everyone seeking these can get them for a reasonable price. Enjoy! -- Ernie
