Sterling Golden Hind - 9.75 inch long Solid Wood Ship Kit with Cloth Sails and Metal Fittings, G5

Wood and Metal Model Kit,   Box Condition: VG+

Also included are full size plans, two sheets of printwood, fully shaped wooden parts, numerous cast metal fittings, pre-cut blocks, hardwood dowels, instructions, standing and running rigging line, rigging diagrams, printed cloth sails and a large, colorful decal sheet.

The fittings bag was sealed but it split while I was inspecting it - I have sealed it in a ziplock. The other parts that were never factory sealed have been inventoried complete with all parts and includes decals and instructions.

Ideal Aeroplane & Supply Revenue Cutter - 12 Inches Long, 1110

Wood Model Kit,   Box Condition: Good-

$38   

The plans are dated 1938. This kit is part of Ideal's famous '12 Inch' series of ship models with the composition molded hull. This eliminated all the work of forming the hull from a block of wood. This hull is in 'near mint' condition with no warping and no damaged, just a few tiny edge chips at the top hull line. Also includes two sheets of printwood parts, bamboo strips, wooden dowels, full plans/instructions which include rigging details. The kit has never been started. It has been inventoried complete with all parts and includes the plans/instructions. The box is generally very nice but is missing the large flap on the left side. The parts are still wrapped in the plans exactly as they left the factory; the plans do have a little wear, mainly in the corners and are in 'very good' condition.

Ideal Aeroplane & Supply Barquentine - 12 Inch Long, 1107

Wood Model Kit,   Box Condition: Fair

$38   

The plans are dated 1939. This kit is part of Ideal's famous '12 Inch' series of ship models with the composition molded hull. This eliminated all the work of forming the hull from a block of wood. This hull is in perfect condition with no warping or chips. Also includes two sheets of printwood parts, bamboo strips, full plans/instructions which include rigging diagrams. The kit has never been started. It has been inventoried complete with all parts and includes the plans/instructions. The box is very fragile and damaged, missing one inner flap (of four) but including both end flaps. The parts are still wrapped in the plans exactly as they left the factory; the plans have age wear and light damage to the corners and short tears on some long sides. Overall they are 'good' and certainly fine enough to use if you choose to build the model.
