1/58 70896 Lindberg Tuna Clipper 'Ann' (Gulf Star) - (Ex-Pyro and Life-Like)
Plastic Model Kit, Box Condition: Sealed Exc+
Still factory sealed. From quality Pyro molds dating from the early 1960s. Modeled from the two Tuna Clippers (Gulf Star and Sea Magic) of the Avondale Marine Ways Company of New Orleans. Model has a hull length of 13.5 inches. Pyro actual designed these for water operation (with the Boat PowerPack which sold separately), so they make nice small R/C models. Hard-working tuna boats and crews roamed the ocean year-around in a dangerous business. Many vanished without a trace. The Gulf Star was wrecked on a reef off Peru.
