Heller Kurun 'Round the World' Norwegian Cutter, 1/60, 80614

Plastic Model Kit,   Box Condition: Exc++

$54   

Very nicely detailed large-scale full-hull kit with billowing sails. Features detailed deck with full fittings, rigging instructions and display stand. The kit has never been started. It has been inventoried complete with all parts and includes decals, vac sails and instructions. The Kuran was the result of the dream of a lover of the sea, Jacques-Yves le Tourmelin. As a young child, he had sworn to go around the world solo under sail. Jacques began construction of the Kuran immediately after World War II. In spite of the scarcity of raw materials, the ship was floated and ready for it's first trials on February 26, 1948. He set the sails for his epic journey on September 19, 1948 at 4 pm. On July 7, 1952, after 45 months sailing, the battle-scared Kuran arrived at the harbor of Le Croisic after circumnavigating the globe.

Dated 1975. One of Revell's finest early ships. It is from the original 'S' kits molds, which are a tribute to the research and skill of the mold maker. Beautiful full-hull model features finely engraved planking and plate detail, rotating main turrets and elevating guns, full secondary armament of 5", 1.1" and ten 5" casemate guns, complete deck fittings with searchlights, motor launches and whaleboats, range finders, ladders, cranes, masts and observations nests, two catapults with Vought O2U Biplanes, display stand and flags and decals for the ship and float planes. The kit has never been started. It has been inventoried complete with all parts and includes decals, flags and instructions.

MPC USS Iowa Waterline Series, 1/1200, 2-4001-110

Plastic Model Kit,   Box Condition: Good-

$12   

Nice quality kit from original Casadio molds. Features separately molded main and secondary battery turrets, catapults and aircraft, two helicopters, life boats and full-hull length camo decals. NOTE: the deck has been glued to the hull. Quality of assembly is 'very good' - there are no gaps but some visible glue on the hull (none on the deck) that will need to be sanded away. There is no other assembly and zero painting. Inventoried complete with all parts, decals and instructions. MPC did a very nice job marketing these kits - the box sides contain interesting ship history, and the instructions include specifications and a large, fold-out illustrated engagement map with battle details.

Aurora F8U-1 Crusader (F-8) - (F8U1), 1/48, 119-98

Plastic Model Kit,   Box Condition: VG+

Pyro Gulf Star Tuna Clipper, 1/58, B374-400

Plastic Model Kit,   Box Condition: Good-

$55   

Mid 1960s hardbox issue. Modeled from the two Tuna Clippers (sister ship is Sea Magic) of the Avondale Marine Ways Company of New Orleans. These hard-working boats and crews roamed the ocean year-around in a dangerous business. Many vanished without a trace. The Gulf Star was wreaked on a reef off Peru. Model has a hull length of 13.5 inches. Very nicely detailed kit for that time. Even includes rigging material and rigging instructions. NOTE: kit has minor and neat assembly; hull halves are assembled. Quality of assembly is 'professional' (no gaps, no glue on the outside portion and great alignment). There is no other assembly and zero painting. Many parts are still in the factory sealed bags; the parts not sealed have been inventoried complete. Includes instructions.

Life-Like Robert E. Lee Mississippi Steam Boat - (ex-Pyro), 1/160, B237-800

Plastic Model Kit,   Box Condition: Good-

$125   

1970 issue from original Pyro molds. Very large and well detailed kit for that time. The race between the Lee and Natchez is considered a classic tale of The River. Although the Lee won, the circumstances were suspect and many people still considered the Natchez the fastest paddle-wheel packet ever. (For example, the Lee carried no payload and the Natchez was carrying passengers and a normal payload.) All details of the real ship, including the wooden railings and carvings are duplicated in plastic. Includes full rigging instructions and thread. Molded in tan and ivory plastic. The kit has never been started. The parts that were factory sealed are still in the sealed bags. The very few parts that were never factory sealed have been inventoried complete including decals/flags and instructions. NOTE: parts are from the Life-Like issue, but the instructions and decals are from a newer Lindberg issue. This is ideal as a builder because you get the earlier mold quality, the Lindberg instructions are much better and the decals are fresh and also better than what Life-Like provided.
