1/58 B374-400 Pyro Gulf Star Tuna Clipper
Plastic Model Kit, Box Condition: Good-
Mid 1960s hardbox issue. Modeled from the two Tuna Clippers (sister ship is Sea Magic) of the Avondale Marine Ways Company of New Orleans. These hard-working 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. Model has a hull length of 13.5 inches. Very nicely detailed kit for that time. Even includes rigging material and rigging instructions. NOTE: kit has minor and neat assembly; hull halves are assembled. Quality of assembly is 'professional' (no gaps, no glue on the outside portion and great alignment). There is no other assembly and zero painting. Many parts are still in the factory sealed bags; the parts not sealed have been inventoried complete. Includes instructions.
