1/390 3658-2-1198 ITC CV-65 USS Enterprise - Motorized and with Cam-A-Matic Action
Plastic Model Kit, Box Condition: Exc
Rare action kit from the early 1960s. The ship sails in the water with an electric motor driving all four propellers. You can program the steering via the Cam-A-Matic drive to steer any number of patterns. While underway, the aircraft elevators move up and down and the ship launches aircraft. Inside, the kit has never been started and is like new. The original display cardboard is present and all parts and decals are still sealed in the factory bags. Instructions are included and as in new condition. The kit is advertised 'For the Advanced Hobbyist' on the box top and I would agree. There are a great many parts and no shortage of moving features and complications. ITC did not shy away from making advanced kit like this and the diving Halibut submarine (dives, surfaces, steers patterns and launches a Regulus II missile) but many kits were returned by frustrated parents and children who did not have the experience to build more complicated models. However, when built properly, they worked and they worked well.
