1/160 09238 Life-Like Natchez Mississippi River Boat Packet - (ex-Pyro)
Plastic Model Kit, Box Condition: Good-
Late 1960s issue from original Pyro molds. Very large and well detailed kit of the famous rival of the Robert E Lee. The race between the two is considered a classic tale of The River. Although the Lee won, the circumstances were suspect and many people still considered the Natchez the fastest paddle-wheel packet ever. (For example, the Lee carried no payload and the Natchez was carrying passengers and a normal payload.) Molded in high-gloss tan, burgundy, green and gray plastic. All details of the real ship, including the wooden railings and carvings are duplicated. Includes full rigging instructions and thread. The kit has never been started. The parts that were factory sealed are still in the sealed bags. The very few parts that were never factory sealed have been inventoried complete including decals, flags and instructions.
