Before using any older kits decals please read the two articles on this website about saving old decals. In 1971, air lines were highly regulated on both sides of the Atlantic. Freddie Laker thought he could fly passengers across the 'Pond' at a fraction of the current ticket prices. Using his successful experience from operating one of the most profitable UK charter airlines, Laker battled for years for permission to run his service at 1/3 of what the existing carriers charged. After 6 years, he finally won. On September 26, 1977, the Laker DC-10s began the first daily discount cross Atlantic flights from London to New York. Although Skytrain service has been long discontinued, Laker helped created the regulatory and business model for modern discount airlines, such as Southwest)

Topping Martin P6M-1 SeaMaster - Topping Factory Model - (P6M1), 1/102

Plastic Model Kit,   Box Condition: Sealed Exc++

Sold   

Rare. Mid 1950s model made by Topping Models of Akron, OH for the Glen Martin Company. Martin presented these to various Navy brass and pilots as a marketing tool for the project. Made in a large 1/102 scale, this SeaMaster is 16 inches long and comes with it's original blue translucent water base which displays the P6M up 'on the step', with the majority of the hull out of the water. This is the early version of the SeaMaster - with the straight, staggered exhaust. On the -2 variant, the exhaust was angled slightly outward and grouped differently. The base and aircraft are 100% original - there has been no repainting and the decals are from the factory. The only decal wear is one the top of the horizontal stabilizer. The paint is excellent with very little wear. At some point, the horizontal stabilizer (a weak point on this model) broke off. It has been repaired and the quality of work is very good. There are no other issues - it is a beautiful model that displays very well. This item must be mailed with insurance.
