Model Expo American Civil War Rucker Ambulance by Guns of History Inc., 1/16, MS4017

Wood and Metal Model Kit,   Box Condition: VG++

Sold   

Retails for $89.95. Very highly detailed kit that is historically accurate and perfectly scaled. Features cleanly cast Britannia metal components, laser-cut ply and basswood platform and chassis, spoked wooden wheels with machined metal hubs and excellent instructions. The kit has never been started. The parts that were factory sealed are still in the sealed bags. The few larger parts that were not factory sealed have been inventoried complete including decals and instructions. The carnage of the Civil War made transporting the wounded from the battle grounds a matter of life or death. The ambulance wagon designed by Brigadier General D.H. Rucker proved to be the most valuable innovation. Used during the later half of the war, it was able to carry patients in seated or prone positions. The ambulance body rested on platform springs designed to reduce both for and aft and side to side jostling. The suspension also included a horizontal draught spring under the fifth wheel to reduce the sudden lurch of the wagon when the team started to pull it.
