1/390 755-49 Lindberg Decoy Ship - (Q-Ship / Sea Raider / USS Atik / SS-Carolyn)
Plastic Model Kit, Box Condition: Good
Very rare. Very desirable kit with Ray Gaedke artwork. This is 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). 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. The kit has never been started. NOTE: missing 5 of 16 vents and one box. The vents are standard vents and could be borrowed from other kit, or resin cast from the remaining vents. The box is simply a rectangle used to cover the deck gun. The other box is present if you wish to copy it in resin. Otherwise inventoried with all other parts, decals and instructions.
