1506 Ideal Aeroplane & Supply USS O'Bannon DD450 - 18 Inch Long Fletcher Class Destroyer - Wooden Model Kit
Wood Model Kit, Box Condition: Fair
Rare ship model dated 1946 that features the Ideal 'Premolded Hull' which is a completely formed and finished hollow hull made from a wood composite. It is 'paint or primer ready', 18 inches long and in like-new condition with no warping and no cracks. Also includes a factory-sealed wax bag of fittings, three sheets of quality printwood, a wide selection of wood stock, dowels and bamboo as required, metal stock and full size plans/instructions. The plans are excellent and very detailed. They even include full text step-by-step building instructions. The kit has never been started. The fittings bag is still factory sealed. All other parts have been inventoried complete with all parts and plans. Although the upper and lower boxes are only 'fair' condition, the inside of the kit is like a time capsule and is exactly how it left the factory down to the original tissue packing material.
