The scale is not listed, but the built model is about 12 inches long. NOTE: the main turrets have been snapped (not glued) in to the deck. There is no other assembly. NOTE: missing display stand.

Pyro Charles W. Morgan Whaling Ship, B249-125

Plastic Model Kit,   Box Condition: Fair+

$22   

Dated 1965 but this is the soft box issue with a '125' price extension, so it is from the later 1960s. Full hull kit with very good molded detail, pre-molded ratlines, detailed deck, billowing sails and display stand. Measures 8.5 inches inches long when assembled. Molded in swirl wood tan and off-white. A photo of the built kit on the instructions serves as a standing rigging diagram. The kit has never been started. The parts that were factory sealed are still in the sealed bags. The parts that were not factory sealed have been inventoried complete including instructions. This is one of the 'intermediate' line of Pyro ship kits, which at the time were Pyro called '$1.00 Models' (later $1.25). All were roughly the same size and were a significant increase in detail from the '50 Cent Models'. Kits in the $1.00 line included the Skipjack, Racing Yawl, Persian Gulf Trader, Burma River Pirate, Polynesian Outrigger Canoe, Cutty Sark, Charles W. Morgan, HMS Bounty and HMS Ark Royal. 50 Cent kits in 1965 included the Mayflower, Barbary Pirate, USS Constitution, Santa Maria, Golden Hind, Half Moon, Bon Homme Richard, War Brig, HMS Victory and Flying Cloud.

Mid 1960s hardbox issue. Modeled from the two Tuna Clippers (sister ship is Sea Magic) of the Avondale Marine Ways Company of New Orleans.

Pyro USS North Carolina Battleship - Table Top Navy, 1/1200, C385-50

Plastic Model Kit,   Box Condition: Exc++

$32   

Small scale ship kit from the Table Top Navy series. Very nicely done kits for their time. Can be built full hull or waterline. Features propeller and shaft detail, separately molded turrets, stacks, many superstructure parts and more. The kit has never been started. It has been inventoried complete with all parts and instructions. Many of the Pyro kits came from Eagle (then Eaglewall) molds in England. Eaglewall went out of business around 1962 and Pyro acquired at least some of the molds. Pyro reissued some of these kits in the mid 1960s with AJ Rudisill artwork. Evidently the line was successful, as Pyro then cut some of their own molds and expanded the series significantly. The earlier issues have the full color artwork and a three digit part number. Later issues have a 'B' or 'C' in front of the three digit kit number; some have simplified box art that is a modification of the original Rudisill paintings by painting out most of the background. Pyro issued these kits into the late 1960 when Life-Like took over the molds. Some were reissued by Life-Like.
