1/450 3600-4-500 ITC SS France Ocean Liner - (Norway)
Plastic Model Kit, Box Condition: Good-
Very rare. First and only issue from 1963; very shortly after this kit was issued, ITC discontinued all plastic kit production. Large 1/450 scale kit of one of the most beautiful ocean liners of all time. Features very good detail for the 1960s, full hull that is 24.75 inches long, 124 parts, 2 winged funnels, 3 anchors, 4 propellers, 2 launches, 20 lifeboats, 2 whaleboats, detailed mast, kingposts and superstructure. Inside, the model has never been started. The kit is molded in black (hull), red (funnels and fittings) and ivory (promenade and superstructure) to minimize painting (like in the ITC United States). Kit also includes a beautiful letter (with a color painting of the France on the letterhead) from Georges Croisile, the Commandant of the French Line, introducing the kit and welcoming you onboard the real France one day. The kit has never been started. The red parts are still sealed in the factory bags. The other parts had tears in the bags due to age, so I opened them and did an inventory - NOTE: missing one tiny part, a lifeboat davit. Otherwise inventoried with all other parts present. Decals, flag sheet and instructions are included.
