The Harriett Lane was built in 1858 and named for President Buchanan's niece. The cutter was 180 feet long with a 30 foot beam and displacement was 670 tons. Armament consisted of 3-9 inch Dahlgrens and 1-30 lb Parrot Rifle. She was built at a time when steam was not fool-proof, so she is rigged for full sails. Harriett Lane served as the Presidential Yacht, the fired the first shot of the Civil War. She chased down blockade runners until Januray 1, 1863 when she was attacked by five Confederate Gun Boats and boarded. She was captured and renamed the Lavinia and was used as a blockade runner. Near the end of the war she caught fire at sea, and put into Havana Harbor. Federal forces took her again and rebuilt her in 1869 as the bark 'Elliot Ritchie'. She was abandoned at sea in 1884.

Revell Clipper Stag Hound 'The Largest Merchant Ship of Her Day', 1/216, H345-400

Plastic Model Kit,   Box Condition: Good++

Sold   

The Stag Hound was designed by the famous Donald McKay and was launched on December 7, 1850. She is famous for her great speed and turned a nice profit for her owners. The most notable event was when the Stag Hound was asked to take a copy of President Lincoln's inaugural address to London. During this run, she raced the steamer 'America' and won easily. Shortly after this she was lost off Brazil to a spontaneous combustion of her coal cargo. The crew successfully abandoned ship. The captain was the last to leave. He lowered the American Flag, wrapped it around himself and jumped overboard. Very nicely detailed like all early Revell sailing ships. Kit is 100% complete but has some painting and assembly. Paint will need to be stripped in brake fluid (DOT 3). Painted areas: lower hull painted copper, deck painted dark wood and misc deck fittings painted. Paint is neatly done with the exception of the hull copper. Assembled areas: several small deck fittings and two deck houses. Quality of assembly is very good and clean.

Graupner 42' Long Graf Zeppelin Aircraft Carrier for Radio Control, 1/250, 2077

Wood Model Kit,   Box Condition: Fair

Sold   

Very rare and large kit of the 'Flugzeugtrager A' or 'Aircraft Carrier A". This German WWII carrier has a fasinating history. She was laid down in 1936, and launched in 1938. Raeder pressed for proper fitting out and completion, but ran into continuous and powerful resistance from Goring, who did not like the idea of the Navy having a mobile air-arm. Goring's interference proved conclusive and the ship, which was 95% complete, never entered service. The air wing was to be navalized Bf-109 Fighters and Ju-87 Dive Bombers. Work stopped completely in 1943 as Hitler became frustrated with the Navy. On April 25, 1945, the Germans scuttled the nearly complete carrier at Stettin just before the Russians arrived. What happened next has been unclear for years. It was generally assumed that the ship struck a mine and sank after the Soviets raised her. With the opening of Russian records, this story can be completed. In 1946 the Soviets raised the ship and towed it to Leningrad. There, they hoped to rebuild it and use it for it's intended purpose. This proved to be impossible at the time, so in 1947 it was towed to sea and used as an target. In 2006, the wreak was actually located. Kit has never been started and is complete. Primarily wood construction. Includes large plans and English Instruction book. For Radio Control. Box is missing one side panel and is only fair.

ITC Halibut SSGN 587 Electric Powered Diving Motorized Submarine (Regulus Sub), 1/175, 3660-998

Plastic Model Kit,   Box Condition: VG

Sold   

This model is not only rare but is considered the most complicated operating model ever produced. The large 24.75 inch long model sails from the power of a large electric motor driving twin geared propellers. It changes direction, dives, surfaces, and a Regulus II missile comes out of the hanger and launches...all automatically. The engineering on this kit is fantastic as was a major break-through in it's day (about 1960). The high price and difficulties that youngsters had with assembly/operation made for a short production run. The model worked, and did work well, but was certainly not a toy for inexperienced model builders. This kit is unique in that it did not have the common 'Seen on TV Maverick' sticker on the box top. The box top is very good. Inside, the kit is absolutely mint. All plastic parts except the main hull 1/2s are still sealed in the factory bags and the bags are still factory stapled to the box. The hull 1/2s were never sealed. The motor bag has been opened, so I inventoried the contents and it is complete. The blue display cardboard is all present and good. Instructions are near mint with minor yellowing. It would be hard to find a better example of this rare kit. (The white plastic parts bag had a small slit in it which I sealed with tape. I did a 100% inventory through the bag and all parts are in mint condition and present.)
