Hawk Model Company

1928 -     

Hawk Model Airplanes was founded in Chicago in 1928, initially producing wooden models, and (like International Model Aircraft in London) ended up buying an injection moulding machine in order to be able to make sturdy and lightweight propellers for their wooden aeroplanes. Having purchased the equipment, the company displayed some plastic aircraft models in 1934, and used the technology during WW2 to produce plastic model aircraft for the US military, for identification training. The year after the war ended, Hawk started selling plastic model aircraft kits.
