1/160 B237 Life-Like Robert E. Lee Mississippi Steam Boat - (ex Pyro)
Plastic Model Kit, Box Condition: Good
1970 issue from original Pyro molds. Very large and well detailed kit for that time. The race between the Lee and Natchez is considered a classic tale of The River. Although the Lee won, the circumstances were suspect and many people still considered the Natchez the fastest paddle-wheel packet ever. For example, the Lee carried no payload and the Natchez was carrying passengers and a normal payload. All details of the real ship, including the wooden railings and carvings are duplicated in plastic. Includes full rigging instructions and thread. Molded in tan and ivory plastic. The kit has never been started. The parts that were factory sealed are still in the sealed bags. The very few parts that were never factory sealed (the large ones and paddle wheels) have been inventoried complete including colorful flag sheet and instructions.
