Plastic Model Kit,   Box Condition: Fair+

Full hull kit with very good molded plank & grain detail, copper sheathing detail below the waterline, separately molded whale boats and davits & deck houses, pre-molded ratlines, billowing sails and display stand. Measures 8.5 inches inches long when assembled. Molded in swirl wood tan and off-white. A photo of the built kit on the instructions serves as a standing rigging diagram. The kit has never been started. The parts that were factory sealed are still in the sealed bags. The parts that were not factory sealed have been inventoried complete including instructions. This is one of the 'intermediate' line of Pyro ship kits, which at the time were Pyro called '$1.00 Models' (later $1.25). All were roughly the same size and were a significant increase in detail from the '50 Cent Models'. Kits in the $1.00 line included the Skipjack, Racing Yawl, Persian Gulf Trader, Burma River Pirate, Polynesian Outrigger Canoe, Cutty Sark, Charles W. Morgan, HMS Bounty and HMS Ark Royal. 50 Cent kits in 1965 included the Mayflower, Barbary Pirate, USS Constitution, Santa Maria, Golden Hind, Half Moon, Bon Homme Richard, War Brig, HMS Victory and Flying Cloud.
