Comet USS Gridley Destroyer - DD380, K9

Wood Model Kit,   Box Condition: Good

$25   

Dated 1944. 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 wooden ships also. This destroyer 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 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. NOTE: Comet used too narrow of a 'block' when machine-cutting the hull. As a result, there is a 9" strip of wood that is short on one side by about 1/4 to 3/8". You will need to glue a strip to this or use filler to rebuild it. The Comet 'Fleet' shown on the box side included K11 Aircraft Carrier, K7 Cruiser, K10 Battleship, K9 Destroyer and K12 Submarine. From the gaps in the part numbers there may have been other kits as well.
