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

Plastic Model Kit,   Box Condition: Good-

Sold   

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.

Revell Avro Dam Buster Lancaster With Secret Bomb, 1/72, H202-198

Plastic Model Kit,   Box Condition: VG+

Sold   

First issue hardbox from 1963. Features specially modified Lancaster fuselage with Dam Buster bomb and release mechanism. Landing gear retracts, props and wheels turns and control surfaces move. The kit has never been started. It has been inventoried complete with all parts and includes decals and instructions. The Dam Busters squadron was famous for its daring raids on three German dams on May 16, 1943. Carrying the special Barns Wallis-designed bombs, the Lancasters flew very low over the water in the face of heavy flak to drop the rotating bombs perfectly. Many did not return. The bombs did perform as promised, first skipping over the water, hitting the dam, then rolling down 30 feet before exploding with tremendous force. In an airburst, these bombs would not have damaged the dams, but since water is incompressible, the dams were breached.
