1/216 H345-300 Revell Clipper Stag Hound 'The Largest Merchant Ship of Her Day'
Plastic Model Kit, Box Condition: VG+
The Stag Hound was designed by the famous Donald McKay and was launched on December 7, 1850. She is famous for her great speed and turned a nice profit for her owners. The most notable event was when the Stag Hound was asked to take a copy of President Lincoln's inaugural address to London. During this run, she raced the steamer 'America' and won easily. Shortly after this she was lost off Brazil to a spontaneous combustion of her coal cargo. The crew successfully abandoned ship. The captain was the last to leave. He lowered the American Flag, wrapped it around himself and jumped overboard. Very nicely detailed like all early Revell sailing ships. Full hull kit with premolded ratlines, optional sails and full rigging instructions. Molded in three colors. Kit is 100% complete but has some painting and assembly. Painted areas: deck roof tops and figurehead. Assembled areas: main deck house walls, rear deck, hatches, wheelhouse and masts. Quality of assembly is excellent with no gaps or glue showing. Perfect builder.
