1/96 813 Lindberg Sea Witch Clipper Sailing Ship (ex-Marx)
Plastic Model Kit, Box Condition: Good-
1979 issue that used the original Marx Sea Witch/Swordfish molds. A beautiful and well detailed model with over 500 parts that measures 33 inches long when assembled. The world's largest toy manufacture, Louis Marx, spared no expense in this early 1950s entry into the growing field of plastic models. The model claims to the first time that anyone could build a museum-quality large ship at home. The claim is correct since the kit pre-dates the Revell 1/96 Cutty Sark. Full hull kit features complete deck fittings, extensive standing and running rigging instructions, optional billowing sails (in 'excellent' condition'), crew members, rigging thread and metal chain. It is molded in several colors just like the original Marx issue. The kit has never been started. All the parts that Lindberg sealed from the factory are still in the factory sealed bags. The hull, stands and mast/yard tree were never factory sealed, but I have inventoried them complete. Includes flag sheet, transfers and excellent instructions.
