Lindberg British Bomb Ketch, 1/150, 896

Plastic Model Kit,   Box Condition: VG+

Sold   

1980 issue. From original Pyro molds 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. NOTE: this kit has minor very neat assembly. The hull halves and decking have been assembled, as well at the lower and upper masts. Quality of assembly is 'professional.' There is no other assembly and zero painting. 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 was originally 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'. Kits in the $1.00 line in '66 included the Skipjack, Cutty Sark, Charles W. 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.

The Pyro company chose many of it's kit subjects based more on historical significance than popularity. Luckily for us, Pyro not only made these kits but did an excellent job for the time. To this day they are often the only kit ever available of such subjects.
