Life-Like HMS Bounty Famous Mutiny Ship, B250-125

Plastic Model Kit,   Box Condition: VG++

Sold   

The famous mutiny ship of Captain Bligh and Fletcher Christian fame. About 8" inches long when assembled. Very nicely detailed medium-size kit from Pyro's line of sailing ships. The medium models were originally called the '$1.00' ship line, which were a significant step up in size and detail from the '50 cent' series. Very nicely molded with wood planking and grain detail, full deck with many separately molded fittings and cannon, one piece masts, separately molded ratlines and billowing sails as well as a display stand. NOTE: kit has minor assembly. Hull halves have been assembled; quality is professional; no gaps and no visible glue. There is no other assembly. 5mm of the port half of the figurehead is broke off the hull and missing; the starboard side is intact, so it is difficult to see this defect. The deck and sails have been neatly painted. You can use them as-is or paint directly over them. The kit has never been started. It has been inventoried complete with all parts and includes instructions.

Heller Richelieu French Battleship, 1/400, L 1015

Plastic Model Kit,   Box Condition: VG++

Sold   

Early issue with superior mold quality. The French Battleships Richelieu and Jean Bart were striking beautiful and powerful ships. Both benefited from the design of the Dunkerque-class Battlecruisers, which were exceptionally well engineered and very difficult to sink as proven by the Dunkerque herself at the tragedy of Mers-El-Kebir. As the Dunkerque-class, these ships had extensive underwater protection and a unique water-exclusion material in the voids. The Richelieu-class carried all of it's main armament forward in two quad turrets with 380mm guns. The heavy secondary guns of 152 mm were carried aft. A high speed of 30 kts was proven and was not at the sacrifice of armor protection as on other capital ships. Richelieu escaped the fall of France and served with Allied forces throughout WWII and was present in Tokyo Bay at the end of WWII. Her sister Jean Bart was completed after the war and the two served with distinction in the post-war French Navy into the 1950s. Never started. Factory sealed bag or inventoried 100% complete with all parts, decals and instructions.

Heller Strasbourg French Battlecruiser, 1/400, 1030

Plastic Model Kit,   Box Condition: VG

Sold   

The Dunkerque-class Battlecruisers were the French response to the German Graf Spee-class and the fast and well-armed Italian ships at the time. If the 1900 to 1930 span of French shipbuilding could be defined as lacking a clear vision or plan, the Strasbourg and her sister decisively ended that period. The products of superior design and engineering, the two sisters would re-define fast capital ships as would their near-sisters Battleships Richelieu and Jean Bart after them. But world events would conspire against these beautiful ships and there visibility in naval history. The Strasbourg was begun in 1934 at St. Nazire, launched in 1936 and put into service in 1939. She never navigated in peacetime. Displacement was 26,500 ton and top speed was 30 knots. Main armament was (8) 330mm guns and (16) 130 mm dual purpose. The main and secondary guns were mounted in the first quadruple turrets. Both main 330 mm turrets faced forward so that all main guns could fire when the enemy was sighted or in pursuit. Her superior speed would allow her to escape anything that she could not out-gun. Like most ships of the day she featured the 'All-Or-Nothing' armor design or 'armored box'. The compact design and placement of the main and secondary armament allowed unusually high armor protection for a battlecruiser. Serious consideration was also given to underwater protection, and the ships had a unique and effective (as events would prove) anti-mine/torpedo system with a novel water-exclusive material. At Mers-El-Kebir, the Dunkerque was pinned at the pier. In an unlucky set of events, a ship moored next to her was sunk along with it's load of depth-charges. Later, a torpedo set off the huge explosive cargo. The damage to Dunkerque was immense. Other ships would have sunk, but she did not. Strasbourg was the only capital ship to get underway during the disaster at Mers-El-Kebir. Her superior speed allowed her to escape while two other French Battleships were sunk. She fled to Toulon, where she was eventually joined by the hastily repaired Dunkerque. However, when the Germans threatened to seize the ships, the entire fleet including the two sisters was scuttled in the harbor. The Italians raised the Strasbourg and stripped her of her guns; but she was bombed and sunk by Allied aircraft. In 1945 she was raised again, but salvage was beyond hope. In 1955 she was sold for scrap. Kit has never started. Factory sealed bag or inventoried 100% complete with all parts, decals and instructions.
