Ideal Aeroplane & Supply CV-7 USS Wasp Aircraft Carrier - 18.5 Inch Long Wooden Ship Kit
Wood Model Kit, Box Condition: Fair
Very rare kit from 1941. Measured 18.5 inches long when assembled. Nicely designed kit that includes a very unusual detailed hanger deck assembly. Issued shortly before the war, the model was not reissued after the war since the Wasp was lost off Guadalcanal by what is likely the most damaging submarine torpedo salvo in history. Includes completely pre-molded and shaped wood-material hull in excellent, solid and straight condition, 5 sheets of very neatly done printwood, wood stock in a variety of shapes and sizes and a fittings packet. Features excellent full size plans and instructions. The plans show numerous detail view of the ships substructure and a detailed view of the hanger deck, flight deck with pre-war markings and island. Never started. NOTE: All the wood parts are complete but it is missing one (of four) paper-fi fibre prop. otherwise inventoried with all other parts and excellent plans.
