Lindberg Monitor and Merrimac with Diorama Seascape Base, 70886

Plastic Model Kit,   Box Condition: VG++

Sold   

Very nice package with both kits, a full color poster of the battle from the original Ray Gaedke box art done in the 1950s, a nice brochure with an illustrated history of the battle, paints and brush, blue plastic seascape battle display base and full decals. Merrimac measures just shy of 13 inches long and the Monitor measures 8.25 inches long. The kit has never been started. It has been inventoried complete with all parts and includes decals and instructions. These are the two American Civil war ships that spelled the end of the wooden ship age. In March of 1862, the Merrimac put to sea to raise the Union Blockade off the St. James. There she sank the Cumberland and Congress. The Monitor, the Union's only ironclad and the first turret ship, was rushed to the scene. The epic battle between the two iron-clad ships ended in a draw, with the Merrimac suffering a little more damage than the Monitor. The Merrimac was blown up to avoid capture; the Monitor sank in a gale in 1862.

Airfix HMS Ark Royal Aircraft Carrier, 1/600, 04208

Plastic Model Kit,   Box Condition: Exc

Sold   

Perhaps the best injection-molded Ark Royal kit. Full hull kit that is very nicely detailed and molded. Includes airwing. The kit has never been started. It has been inventoried complete with all parts and includes instructions. This aircraft carrier was the third vessel of the Royal Navy to be named Ark Royal - the first ship took part in the defeat of the Spanish Armada, and the second was being constructed as a tanker when the Royal Navy took it over and converted it to become the first seaplane carrier. The Ark Royal III was launched in April 13, 1937 and was very active during WWII. She was reported sunk several times by German sources. She took part in the defense of Norway. In October of that year, she and Renown went to the South Atlantic to hunt for the Graf Spee. Later her Skuas took part in a gallant but failed attack the Scharnhorst. She then moved to Gibraltar with Force H. In May of 1941, she took part in the search for the Bismarck. Her Swordfish torpedo aircraft scored two hits, one of which jammed the rudders of the German Battleship while she was in a tight turn. This hit sealed the fate of Bismarck, and she was sunk. If this hit would not have occurred, she would have made safe haven at Brest. In November of 1941, the Ark Royal was working the dangerous escort of Malta convoys when she was struck by a torpedo from U-81. Despite all attempts to save her, she went down. Only one sailor lost his life.
