1513 Ideal Aeroplane & Supply USS Essex Frigate
Wood Model Kit, Box Condition: NM
Very rare as the box is in amazing, investment-grade "Near Mint" condition. It has no more wear than if it just came off the assembly line. Ideal ship kits seldom surface, but almost never in this condition. Solid wooden ship model dated 1950. Features and excellent factory-carved hull, three sheets of printwood, numerous hardwood dowels and other strip wood stock, cast metal fittings, rigging beads, black standing rigging thread and superb full size plans. The plans also include complete text building instructions and assembly step/details drawings as well as rigging information. Measures about 15 inches long when complete. Never started. The fittings are all still factory sealed in a small bag. The other parts have been inventoried complete and includes plans. Please NOTE, the plans have never been used but due to age, they have closed splits on some seams and a closed tear.
