1/380 Ideal Aeroplane & Supply S.S. Normandie Super Detail Model 32
Multimedia Model Kit, Box Condition: Good
Very rare near 1/350 scale large model of the greatest Ocean Liner in history. The Normandie represented the finest artistic achievement in ocean transportation, ranging from her fine lines, and uncluttered deck to her record speed and unequaled art-deco interior magnificence. This is still the largest and finest kit of the Normandie that has ever made and dates from the mid to late 1930s. The Ideal Aeroplane & Supply Company Super Detail kits were unsurpassed in detail and accessories for that time period. The model contains full size drawings (34" x 44"), many sheets of printed balsa wood details, shaped balsa wood hull, dowels, split bamboo, 30 cast metal life boats, 24 cast metal stairways, 16 cast winches, aluminum life boat davits, 3 metal anchors, 4 brass propellers, two turned wooden stands, detailing pins, hawse lips, 1 printed fibre sheet, 7 glass bottles of Ideal paints, glue, shellac, etc (still wrapped in the original paper, and some still good), sandpaper, colored flags and printed lifeboat covers. Please note: The kit is complete except for the following: 5 davits are missing (55 are present; easily made from flat plastic stock) and the eyelet portholes are missing. There are perhaps the easiest of all parts in the kit to replace.
