K10 Comet USS New York or USS Texas Battleship
Wood Model Kit, Box Condition: VG
Dated 1945. Almost everyone has heard of the Comet flying aircraft kits that boys and men built from stick and tissue, but few know that Comet had a line of ships also. Very nicely done wooden model that measures 10 inches long when assembled. The hull had been very neatly factory machine cut to the correct height and overhead (beam) dimensions. Also includes three sheets of printwood, wooden smoke stack, wood mast and gun barrel material, sandpaper and full size plans. The plans are superior to most ship plans of the day with 5 hull sections, full size top and side drawings, illustrated instructions and several detail drawings. The kit has never been started. It has been inventoried complete with all parts and includes instructions. Please note that Comet does not identify the kit as the New York or her sister Texas but I have identified the class from the drawings. The kit represents them after the 1930s refit with a single funnel. The instructions have a closed tear on the right that is hard to see unless you know it is there.
