$28

After 17 days he was convinced that this was not the route to the Indies. The following year, he sailed for the English with the same mission. Hudson sailed more northerly this time and discovered the great bay which now bears his name. His ship was frozen for the winter. When the spring thaw came, he tried to continue north but his crew mutinied and set him adrift in a small boat with his son and some crew members who did not join the mutiny. They disappeared forever among the ice flows of the Arctic. No trace was ever found. The crew returned to England to face trial.

Plastic Model Kit,   Box Condition: Good

$39   

1966 Pyro issue from original molds. In the early to mid 1960s the Pyro company chose many of it's kit subjects based more on historical significance than popularity.

The Pyro car models are based on the actual cars that Pyro engineers and designers had access to, in this case Gary Cooper and Clark Gable's automobiles. This was the Duesenberg Company's last great automobile before going out of business in 1937. The Model J was a superb automobile and the fastest and finest car of it's day. Never to be outdone, the two brothers made two supercharged 'Super-Duesenbergs' from J models and are referred to by the public as SSJs. (The term SSJ was never used by the factory) The output was a whopping 400 bhp. The model includes rubber tires, wire wheels, a tree of chrome plated parts, colored injection molded parts and clear parts.

Nicely molded small scale ship model features full hull, separately molded deck cannons, anchors & masts, billowing sails and display stand. Measures about 7 inches long at the longest point. Never started and inventoried complete with all parts and includes instructions.
