Pyro British Bomb Ketch, C256-100

Plastic Model Kit,   Box Condition: Good

Sold   

Dated 1966. Full hull kit with very good molded detail, pre-molded ratlines, detailed deck, billowing sails and display stand. Measures just over 9.5 inches inches long when assembled. Molded in swirl wood tan and off-white. The box drawing serves as a rigging diagram. Never started. Inventoried 100% complete with all parts and instructions. The British Bomb Ketch was often called 'a ship without a foremast'. A heavily padded well was built into the deck in place of the usual foremast. A heavy mortar was tied down into this well. These ships were used to bombard shore installations that smaller cannons had no effect on. The bombs weight about 200 pounds as compared to the usual 48 pounds from the largest naval guns of the time. The entire ship was aimed to fire the mortar. The mortar first used in this type vessel was used until the second world war with very little change in design except for the the controls and firing mechanism. This is one of the 'intermediate' line of Pyro ship kits, which in 1966 Pyro called '$1.00 Models'. All were roughly the same size and were a significant increase in detail from the '50 Cent Models'.

Morgan, HMS Bounty, HMS Ark Royal, USS Constellation, British Bomb Ketch, Chinese War Junk, Elsie - Gloucester Fisherman, Burma River Pirate, Racing Yawl, Polynesian Outrigger and others. 50 Cent kits in 1966 included the Mayflower, Barbary Pirate, USS Constitution, Santa Maria, Golden Hind, Half Moon, Bon Homme Richard, Brig of War, HMS Victory, Flying Cloud, Nina, Pinta, Santa Maria and others.

Lindberg LST (Landing Ship Tank) by Paul Lindberg, 1/250, 702-198

Plastic Model Kit,   Box Condition: VG++

Sold   

Rare first Lindberg issue from the 1950s with Ray Gaedke artwork. The box has the correct first circle logo. This kit was originally produced by Varney in 1944. It was novel at the time as it had a wooden hull, cardstock but all injection molded tenite deck parts and details. When the early Varney aircraft and ship kits did not sell well, Gorden Varney sold the molds for the kit to O-lin (Olsen and Lindberg). O-Lin reworked the kit using a vacuform hull, cardstock deck, metal railings and tenite parts. When Lindberg took full control of O-lin, he modified the molds for a third time so the kit has metal railings and all other parts are injection molded. That is this model. NOTE: this kit has some assembly. Some deck fittings (winches, vents, aft gun tub and gun) have been glued as well as the upper rear superstructure. Quality of assembly is very good. The kit has been inventoried complete with all parts, decals, flags, metal railings and correct first logo instructions.

So please note that the instructions have three holes for a binder and the decal sheet was neatly cut so the decals could fit in a protective envelope. Only the blank backing paper is cut and none of the transfers are damaged.

Berkeley is a very famous manufacturer of flying model kits from the Golden Age of flying aviation, about 1932-1954. Founded in 1933 by William Effinger, the company was quite progressive in producing quality kits - it was likely the Berkeley 'Buccaneer' was the first gas powered model in kit form. In the later 1930s, Effinger acquired the services of a very talented Henry Struck. Struck went on to design numerous award-winning kits under the Berkeley name. Berkeley weathered the post WWII recession and emerged as a major kit producer in the late 1940 and 1950s. These were great years for Berkeley and they produced some incredible and large kits. The company went bankrupt in about 1960 however. Fox engines (Duke Fox) bought the company and released the kits alongside his own FOX models and engines. This arrangement did not last, and in the early 1960s the Berkeley name disappeared from hobby shop shelves.
