Marx The 'Sea Witch' Full-Rigged Clipper Ship 33 Inches Long, 1/96

Plastic Model Kit,   Box Condition: VG++

$189   

Rare and beautiful original issue from the 1950s. Measures 33 inches long when assembled as has over 500 parts and excellent detail throughout. The world's largest toy manufacture, Louis Marx, spared no expense in this early 1950s entry into the growing field of plastic models. The model claims to the first time that anyone could build a museum-quality large ship at home. The claim is correct since the kit pre-dates the Revell 1/96 Cutty Sark. Prior to this model, only wood kits were available for sailing ship enthusiasts. These required a great deal time, skill and craftsmanship. A great deal of thought went into the design of this large and complicated kit to make it easier to construct. The most complicated painting areas, the hull and deck, were dealt with in an exceptional fashion. The hull was factory assembled and painted. The plastic is black, and the under the waterline is factory painted copper and inside above the decks is white. This paint is in excellent condition. The three main decks were tin lithographed, which means the decks are completely finished with all the detail of wood; boards are of different shades and divided by perfect, thin black lines. These decks are in near mint condition with minimal if any wear. The rest of the parts are molded in three colors of plastic to further minimize painting. The vacuformed billowing sails are in very good condition as well. The kit has never been started. The parts are still in the factory bags with the exception of the white parts which were never factory sealed; those parts have been inventoried complete. Including the booklet about the Clipper Ships, the box containing the 'Captain and Crew' figures, different rigging materials, decals and more. The instructions are a work of art themselves. They are a very large and well-produced affair with numerous photos of the assembled kit, enlarged drawings, detailing tips and standing/running rigging instructions. A beautiful kit in excellent condition. Another of Marx's rare kits is the large Chris Craft Constellation. It had fantastic detail for that time but also suffered from an initial high price which resulted in poor sales for both kits (and rarity today).

Plastic Model Kit,   Box Condition: Exc+

$38   

Very finely molded and detailed kit for the time. Has decals for both aircraft. The kit has never been started. It has been inventoried complete with all parts and includes decals and instructions. In the 1930s Pan Am was a household word in the USA for their romantic foreign routes and the glamorous 'China Clippers' that crossed the Pacific Ocean, stopping at such ports as Wake Island. Pan Am's attention soon turned to the Atlantic. Since non-stop service would be needed, a new aircraft was designed. The Boeing 314 was chosen. This huge flying boat started flying the Atlantic mail in 1939 with a trip over 26 hours long. Before the war, the 314 fleet flew the Pacific, Atlantic and other routes. The airliner was a palace compared to the cramped jets and limited service of today. The flight deck compared to the bridge of a ship and housed 6 crew. It was connected to the passenger cabin by a spiral staircase. The luxurious cabins were divided into 5 standard compartments, each seating 10 passengers, a dining salon for 14, a special compartment for four and a deluxe bridal suite. 74 could be carried on day trips and 40 when sleeping quarters for all passengers was required. Chefs prepared gourmet meals while passengers lounged in deeply cushioned wicker chairs and enjoyed a grand view of the scenery from about 5,000 feet. The age of the Clippers ended shortly after WWII when land planes could operate at much higher speeds than the flying boats.
