1/390 780M-129 Lindberg Q-Ship - (Decoy Ship / Sea Raider / USS Atik / SS-Carolyn) - Motorized
Plastic Model Kit, Box Condition: NM-
Very rare. From the late 1950s. Fantastic condition kit with Ray Gaedke artwork. The box is near mint and has a very light wear and a light crease as the only flaws. This is the Motorized version of the Lindberg Q Ship, which has an unknown prototype but is suppose to be a WWI style Q-Ship submarine trap. The ship appears to be a WWI British Q Ship by the title, yet looks a little modern and has US numbers of 171 (which apparently mean nothing). This model was also issued as the 'Decoy Ship' and 'Sea Raider'. The Lindberg model actually has the layout of the AK-101 USS ATIK, which was formerly the SS-CAROLYN, built in 1912. The CAROLYN was recommissioned as the USS ATIK and at the start of WWI which was a real US Q-ship. This kit has never been started. It is either still in the internally sealed factory bag or has been inventoried 100% complete with all parts, decals and instructions.
