GHM Douglas C-133 Cargomaster with Decals, 1/72

Vacuform Model Kit

Sold   

SPECIAL ORDER KIT. The kit is produced when payment is received. Please allow 4-6 weeks for delivery. The most accurate and well-researched 1/72 C-133 kit available. The shape and dimensions of this kit are very accurate. Model includes two large and two small sheets of vac formed main parts, full sized plans, 36 pages of highly detailed assembly instructions (including many photos) and research material for detailing your model and a very large color decal sheet. The exhaustive instructions also serve as one of the best guides that I have seen to properly building and strengthening a large vacuform kit, as full details, photos and templates are included for a balsa wooden structure to help the fuselage correctly carry the load of the wings. There is an additional parts kit (with wheels, props, landing gear struts, etc) available for an additional $40.

The instructions also serve as the best guide I have seen on how to build any large vac kit. Shipping is by Priority Mail (in the USA) or Airmail for International.

Plastic Model Kit,   Box Condition: VG++

Sold   

After the initial issue, Pyro re-marketed the Harriett Lane as the "Lavinia", which was what the Confederates renamed her when they captured her and made her a blockage runner. 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 January 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. Never started. Factory sealed bag or inventoried 100% complete with all parts, decals and instructions.
