Great site, in the 1960's. My mom bought me my first model... Renwal. Hawk missle and launcher. Thank you i would never have discovered this model.
Best of luck

Wim, this is the first time I've come across your site. I was doing research to consider building the Hawk carrier. Just seeing your model has satisfied the urge in me to build one. I would imagine its the only one in the world! You did a fantastic job. The whole suite of Hawk system components is masterful. Your work is an inspiration. Like you I love scratchbuilding and "rectifying" vintage kits. Keep up the good work.
A kindred spirit, Mike G.

I build 1/25 and 1/24 scale US tanks and Vehicles There are very few kits. I have made IMAI M-5 with Long Tom and a scratch built High Speed tractor M-6 with a V-12 that can be seen from rear that towed The barrel of the Black Dragon 203mm. it is a longer version of the M-5. I also modified R/C 1/24 scale Sherman added a bulldozer blade on it. I made a resin spot light truck with a 43 Chevy cab, I tried to make a Holmes Wrecker a larger version with a resin Diamond T cab. But it was very hard to find all the winch parts .Any others out there that build this larger scale? I'm in the Arizona desert USA

I really admire your work, these are the models I tried to build as a kid. The Sky Sweeper is not a model for a 9 year old! BTW I worked with an engineer who, when he was in the US Army was a technician who maintained the Sky Sweeper.
Best Regards and have a great New Year!

A very nice site indeed and I recently got several finished and still boxed kits from my dad including Renwal and Monogram 1:48 airplane kits from the past. I'm looking forward building them and this site provides very nice background information.
