1/96 H364-995 Revell Cutty Sark Clipper Ship - 3 Feet Long
Plastic Model Kit, Box Condition: Good-
Rare first issue of this kit dated 1960. Large and highly detailed, measuring 36 inches long when built. Although older, this kit is the standard that all other large-scale plastic models of sailing ships are measured by. Since this is the first issue, the model has the factory painted copper hull below the waterline. The factory paint is in amazing 'excellent++' condition. Since this is a first edition it also contains the larger-format earlier booklet about the Cutty Sark. The model features highly detailed deck, deck houses, cargo holds and removable covers, masts, yards and booms, bilge pump, windlass, 20 crew figure, lifeboats with oars, life preservers, anchors and anchor chains. With draftline and transom decals, figurehead, finely detailed hull, preformed ratlines and molded deadeyes, pin rails and blocks, full standing rigging instructions and diagrams and thread & chain for rigging. Molded in three colors - black, ivory/white and dark wood tan. The kit has never been started. It has been inventoried complete with all parts present. Includes instructions, rigging plans and decals. Please note that the box displays better than the 'good-' condition grade. That is because there is significant litho loss on the left short side panel.
