The Ship Model Shop USS Arleigh Burke DDG51 Guided Missile Destroyer - 22 Inches Long, 1/250

Wood and Metal Model Kit,   Box Condition: VG

$245   

Very rare and highly detailed model from Allen Baker's legendary Ship Model Shop. This was the last kit he issued, and there are two personally signed letters from Mr. Baker included with the kit. Very high quality kit features 90% factory finished hardwood hull, perfectly cut and crisp wood superstructure parts, a vast number of cast metal fittings, a large sheet of photoetched brass details, wood, plastic and metal stock as required, a beautiful set of dry transfers designed by Mr. Baker and custom made by Chartpak. Paperwork includes instructions, plans, sales material, color photos and various photocopies of plans. Carefully inventoried against the included parts list and NOTE: missing (2) of (16) small bitts and the (4) flat Aegis Antenna Enclosures; very easily made by cutting them from sheet styrene. All original paperwork is included but please NOTE: Mr. Baker had difficulty in releasing this final kit. So the instructions are generic (from the FFG7 kits) and a set of assembled plans. He apologizes in the letter for the standard of documentation. I only recommend this model if you are comfortable building a ship from plans.

Ideal Aeroplane & Supply Sloop-Of-War Ferret 1812 - With Prefabricated Rat Lines, 2502-89

Wood Model Kit,   Box Condition: Exc++

$79   

Very rare. This early plastic model kit is dated 1955. It also may be the first all-plastic ship kit ever issued by Ideal Aeroplane & Supply Company, which was simply known as 'Ideal' at this time. Under both names Ideal was famous for their extensive line of military and civil ships made with wood and metal. Although the exact story of how this kit came to will probably never be known, we can take an accurate guess. Since ideal was a manufacturer of model kits, they certainly noticed the Gowland & Gowland Highway Pioneers and how they had launched a new sector of the Hobby Industry. After seeing Varney, early Revel or Gowland & Gowland's small ship models (likely the latter), Ideal decided to make plastic kit of their own. A subject was chosen - most likely based on their successful wood and metal kit of the Sloop-of-War Ferret, which was a 23.5 inch long model. Scaling this down, Ideal designed and had molds cut to what was a high standard for that time. The model measures 8.5" long when assembled. Credit also goes to Ideal's market research who realized this model had a different audience than all their other kits; instead of the boring two or one color boxes, this one features full color illustration and even the instructions are a work of sketch art with pirates assembling the ship and much more. This is far superior to the Pyro kits of this size which were produced in the later 1950s. The Ideal Ferret features over 40 pieces (many of them quite small), a realistically mold and scale one-piece full hull, almost all deck fittings separately molded, a display stand, completely factory made fabric rat lines (a real plus and nicely done) as well as vividly illustrated instructions and an excellent painting guide. Never started. It has been inventoried complete with all parts and includes instructions in 'excellent' condition.

Lumba-Lumba means 'porpoises' in Malay. This ship was commissioned by Caltex Pacific Oil Company in 1961 to speed personnel and freight from Sumatra to Singapore. She was designed by the famous naval architects Sparkman and Stephens who created the Columbia (winner of the New England yacht races). NOTE: this kit must be shipped insured.

Wood and Metal Model Kit,   Box Condition: Exc

A superb model that sells new for $340. Of all aspects of New England fishing in the late 19th century, none was more distinctive than the mackerel purse-seine fishery with it's specialized gear, exacting techniques and fast, handsome schoolers built specifically for this seasonal work.

If you specify, I will be glad to pack it inside a box but extra shipping will apply.
