1/216 H345-400 Revell Stag Hound Clipper - The Largest Merchant Ship of Her Day - With Revell Glue
Plastic Model Kit, Box Condition: Exc
The Stag Hound was designed by the famous Donald McKay and was launched on December 7, 1850. She is famous for her great speed and turned a nice profit for her owners. The most notable event was when the Stag Hound was asked to take a copy of President Lincoln's inaugural address to London. During this run, she raced the steamer 'America' and won easily. Shortly after this she was lost off Brazil to a spontaneous combustion of her coal cargo. The crew successfully abandoned ship. The captain was the last to leave. He lowered the American Flag, wrapped it around himself and jumped overboard. 1966 hardbox issue that is very nicely detailed like all early Revell sailing ships. Even includes a factory-sealed medium size tube of Revell cement that is still good. The kit is molded in black, wood tan and white and includes very realistic pre-molded ratlines, running and standing rigging thread, vacuform sails (in excellent condition), cutting guide for the ratlines and detailed diagrams for standing and running rigging. Never started. It has been inventoried complete with all parts and includes decals and instructions.
