Comet USS Gridley (DD380) Destroyer, K9

Wood Model Kit,   Box Condition: VG+

$34   

Dated 1945. Almost everyone has heard of the Comet flying aircraft kits that boys and men built from stick and tissue, but few know that Comet had a line of ships also. Very nicely done wooden kit that measures 12 inches long when assembled. The hull had been very neatly factory machine cut to the overhead (beam) dimensions only. Also includes three sheets of printwood, mast and gun barrel material, a large bottle of Comet gray dope that is still good and full size plans. The plans are superior to most ship plans of the day with 3 hull sections, full size top and side drawings, illustrated instructions and a very large number of detail drawings. The kit has never been started. It has been inventoried complete with all parts and includes instructions.

Email for availability.

Rare, highly pre-fabricated kit from 1946. Very high quality wood and metal scale LST measuring 14 inches long when assembled; the given 1/135 scale is approximate. Features a completely pre-carved hardwood hull, wooden hardwood superstructure parts that are completely cut and shaped, preformed gun tubs, details such as anchors, guns, vents, lockers, ammo boxes, rudder, propellers, life rafts, bow ramps and much more that are all made from metal, wood, heavy embossed bristol board and other materials as well. Includes full size plans with detailed parts list and instructions. The kit has never been started. It has been inventoried 100% complete with all parts, internal cardboard presentation material and large, detailed instructions with plans. Rogers was an early producer of miniature gas engines for free-flight and early radio control model kits and often had large adds for these engines in hobby magazines. The full company name on the box is listed as 'Rogers Motor Company Detroit Michigan' and the 'Scale Model Division' is listed as Tawas City, Michigan. Right near the end of WWII, Rogers made a very short journey into kit manufacturing. As you would expect from an engine manufacture, the kits were all highly prefabricated, had excellent detail and were fairly complicated. Rogers produced at least four kits - the M4 Sherman Tank, 40MM AA Gun and Carriage (1/16 scale), Army Weasel and LST. These kits were likely produced in that order, with the LST being released around late 1945/early 1946. I have seen several of these kits built and they make excellent displays.
