Pyro Gertrude L Thebaud Fishing Schooner, 206-298

After being initially defeated by the Blunose, the Thebaud won the Sir Thomas Lipton Trophy in 1930 in a hard-fought contest with her rival. The contest is still disputed to this day. Nicely detailed for that time and measures 20 inches long when built. Features 125 parts, full hull with display stand, deck fittings, rigging material and full rigging instructions. Molded in black and wood tan. The kit has never been started. It has been inventoried complete with all parts and includes decals and instructions.

Pyro Auburn 1935 Supercharged 851 Boattail Speedster, 1/25, C331-98

Plastic Model Kit,   Box Condition: Exc++

$39   

Likely the third issue of the only larger scale Auburn kit in injection molded plastic. The '35 Auburn weighed 4200 lbs. and was one of the few cars of that time to have hydraulic brakes. Power came from a 150hp (@4000) supercharged engine with three inch exhaust pipes that easily sped the car to over 100 mph. Ab Jenkins set a record with a stock issue 851 at Bonneville Salt Flats in July of 1935, and became the first one to pilot a stock car for over 12 hours at an average of over 100 mph. Molded in red and includes a fully positionable female driver molded in peach plastic. Features complete engine, hinging/opening hood and 'good' interior detail. Never started. Inventoried complete with all parts and instructions. This is a rather simple kit but I have seen it look excellent built up if you are willing to take the time to detail it.
