1/240 333-198 Pyro USS Olympia - C6 Protected Cruiser Admiral Dewey's Flagship
Plastic Model Kit, Box Condition: Good
Rare early hardbox issue from the late 1950s showcases some of Pyro's best box artwork. This kit features a full hull with rudder and propeller detail, deck fittings, main and secondary guns, light guns, lifeboats, ventilators and more. Includes a display stand and this is the issue with the larger decal sheet with gold bow detail, draft markings, rear stern name, flags, bow shield and big stand decal. Molded in gloss white. The kit has never been started. It has been inventoried complete with all parts and includes decals and instructions. Please note that the box is only 'good' - it has moderate to significant edge wear, litho chips, a small stain at the top center (and on the adjacent long side). In addition to her more famous role in the War with Spain, Olympia went on to active service in World War I, the Allied intervention in Russia, and as flagship in the Mediterranean, 1919. She is preserved today as a museum ship and one of the very few protected cruisers left in the world.
