Plastic Model Kit, Box Condition: Exc++++
Dramatic Ray Gaedke artwork on this late 1950s issue. The hard box is in excellent condition and color and gloss are like new. Well detailed larger scale kit. Includes electric motor and hardware for water operation. The kit has never been started. Internal factory sealed bag or inventoried 100% complete including decals and instructions. This kit was originally produced by Varney in 1944. It was novel at the time as it had a wooden hull, cardstock but all injection molded tenite deck parts and details. When the early Varney aircraft and ship kits did not sell well, Gorden Varney sold the molds for the kit to O-lin (Olsen and Lindberg). O-Lin reworked the kit using a vacuform hull, cardstock deck, metal railings and tenite parts. When Lindberg took full control of O-lin, he modified the molds for a third time so the kit has metal railings and all other parts are injection molded. In the fourth and final modification (this kit), all parts are injection molded plastic.
