StromBecker USS Gambier Bay CVE Escort Aircraft Carrier - (Casablanca Class), C18

Wood Model Kit,   Box Condition: Fair

$95   

Wonderful kit from the 1950s and that is 10 inches long when assembled. StromBecker was famous for this line of precarved hardwood and plastic kits. This model is made of quality Western Pine hardwood, not balsa. The carving is done to the final shape and when completed it makes an impressive desk top display. Never started. Inventoried 100% complete with all parts and plans present. The box is only 'fair' - there is heavy wear, writing as shown on the box top and all of the end panels are missing on the left side.
