Ideal Aeroplane & Supply S.S. Normandie Super Detail Model 32, 1/380

Multimedia Model Kit,   Box Condition: Good

Sold   

Very rare near 1/350 scale large model of the greatest Ocean Liner in history. The Normandie represented the finest artistic achievement in ocean transportation, ranging from her fine lines, and uncluttered deck to her record speed and unequaled art-deco interior magnificence. This is still the largest and finest kit of the Normandie that has ever made and dates from the mid to late 1930s. The Ideal Aeroplane & Supply Company Super Detail kits were unsurpassed in detail and accessories for that time period. The model contains full size drawings (34" x 44"), many sheets of printed balsa wood details, shaped balsa wood hull, dowels, split bamboo, 30 cast metal life boats, 24 cast metal stairways, 16 cast winches, aluminum life boat davits, 3 metal anchors, 4 brass propellers, two turned wooden stands, detailing pins, hawse lips, 1 printed fibre sheet, 7 glass bottles of Ideal paints, glue, shellac, etc (still wrapped in the original paper, and some still good), sandpaper, colored flags and printed lifeboat covers. Please note: The kit is complete except for the following: 5 davits are missing (55 are present; easily made from flat plastic stock) and the eyelet portholes are missing. There are perhaps the easiest of all parts in the kit to replace.

Pyro Civil War Blockade Runner (Cutter 'Lavinia') - (ex-Harriett Lane), 1/124, B375-400

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.

Plastic Model Kit,   Box Condition: Good

Sold   

Rare Factory/Desk Promotional model produced by Topping for McDonnell. These models were given to Air Force 'Project Decision Makers' and pilots as promotional items by McDonnell. Model is complete with the original stand. It has never been broken and there are no cracks. Paint and decals are 100% original with no touch up. The paint has great gloss and minimal wear. I would grade the paint as 'Exc++' and the decals as 'Exc'. There is general light decal wear, the worst of which is one of the 'FB-494' number on the lower right engine and one underside camera panel. This can be repaired if you have the ability to make simple decals on an inkjet printer. The stand would rate NM with the "McDonnell RF-101 Voodoo" and stylized aircraft as mint.

Paint and decals are 100% original with no touch up. I would grade the paint as Exc++++ and the decals the same. The only decal wear is one of the straight black panel lines on the wing for about .6 of an inch. This can be easily repaired. The stand would rate NM with the "Grumman EA-6B" script as mint.
