OH SWEET NOSTALGIA!
SMN looks back
For the more mature model maker out there, then these old kits might bring back a memory or two. Once upon a time Hawk kits, sporting the distinctive logo, were a popular choice in the local model store. And as for that Revell F-102A, the addition of included ground equipment turned a model jet kit into a diorama, before the word was even invented... Well, maybe not quite that, but you know what we mean.
Seriously, the Delta Dagger was a reasonable kit, turned into kit-plus by the addition of some intelligent brainstorming in the sales department, followed up by extra parts in the box. We were never sure about featuring grinning youths though!
