Revell Frigate USS United States Old Wagon - With Billowing Sails, 1/96, H396

Plastic Model Kit,   Box Condition: VG

$195   

Rare 1976 release that is 36 inches long and 27 inches high when assembled. Highly detailed and has the correct changes for this ship. Includes sails and full rigging. Inside, the kit has never been started. All parts except the hull (which was never sealed) are still sealed in the factory bags. All instructions, rigging diagrams, vacuform sails and pre-formed ratlines are included. The vacuform sails grade 'excellent' condition which is well above average. The Revell model depicts the vessel as modified for use as a flagship, with a much enlarged, rebuilt stern and "roundhouse." Writer Herman Melville's (apparently unenthusiastic) service on this vessel, including many details of equipment and life aboard, is detailed in his autobiographical novel, "White-Jacket"(1850).

Gowland & Gowland Bon Homme Richard Shipyard Ships in Miniature, 312-S

Plastic Model Kit,   Box Condition: Exc

$34   

Rare, early, small-scale ship kit from 1952. Very nicely detailed and molded, especially for that era. Includes waterline model, molded set display base, sails and ratlines finely printed on clear plastic sheet. The scale is not given, but the sea base measures 6.5" x 2" and the ship is approximately 5 inches long. Includes beautiful color instructions with the ship history, illustrations of assembly, how to set the sails and photos for rigging. Never started. It has been inventoried complete with all parts and includes instructions. The box sides illustrates and names the 10 kits of this line. All were available in standard issues (such as this kit) or 'Ship In A Bottle' versions with a clear plastic bottle; the 'Bottle' was also available separately. The entire set consists of the Santa Maria 1492, Golden Hind 1588, Mayflower 1620, Bon Homme Richard 1779, SS Savannah 1819, The Flying Cloud 1849, Charles W. Morgan 1850, Gertrude L. Thebaud 1929, Frigate Constitution 1797 and US Revenue cutter 1849. It appears that Gowland & Gowland has not received the credit that it deserves in the plastic kit revolution that took America by storm in the early 1950s. Gowland developed the first all plastic car made in the USA in 1950, the 1911 Maxwell. Even more interesting is that Kevin and Jack Gowland developed the 'Highway Pioneers' in 1951 which heralded the future for the American Hobby Industry. The reason that Gowland's name is not in the fore-front of model history is that Precision Specialties (later Revell) did the distribution for Gowland.
