Are these the same molds of the old Hawk kits that Testors had released or
are they strictly from the old Aurora molds?

I thought I remember (yeah, right> reading somewhere that they were all the
same molds. I still have a Spad XIII and Nieuport 17, the ones with the decal
locations in the plastic.

At $9.00 a pop I can see my unbuilt collection growing.

And yes, I do have one of those Glencoe DIIIs.
