Comet USS Gridley Destroyer - DD380, K9

Wood Model Kit,   Box Condition: Good

$25   

Dated 1944. Almost everyone has heard of the Comet flying aircraft kits that boys and men built from stick and tissue, but few know that Comet had a line of wooden ships also. This destroyer measures 12 inches long when assembled. The hull had been very neatly factory machine cut to the overhead (beam) dimensions only. Also includes three sheets of printwood, mast and gun barrel material and full size plans. The plans are superior to most ship plans of the day with 3 hull sections, full size top and side drawings, illustrated instructions and a very large number of detail drawings. The kit has never been started. It has been inventoried complete with all parts and includes instructions. NOTE: Comet used too narrow of a 'block' when machine-cutting the hull. As a result, there is a 9" strip of wood that is short on one side by about 1/4 to 3/8". You will need to glue a strip to this or use filler to rebuild it. The Comet 'Fleet' shown on the box side included K11 Aircraft Carrier, K7 Cruiser, K10 Battleship, K9 Destroyer and K12 Submarine. From the gaps in the part numbers there may have been other kits as well.

Features fully precarved solid hardwood hull, all basswood and metal construction, copper sheathing below the waterline, laser cut paddlewheel covers, brass and Britannia metal fittings and much more. The Harriett Lane was built in 1857 and named for President Buchanan's niece. The cutter was 180 feet long with a 30 foot beam and displacement was 670 tons. Armament consisted of 3-9 inch Dahlgrens and 1-30 lb Parrot Rifle. She was built at a time when steam was not fool-proof, so she is rigged for full sails. Harriett Lane served as the Presidential Yacht, the fired the first shot of the Civil War. She chased down blockade runners until January 1, 1863 when she was attacked by five Confederate Gun Boats and boarded. She was captured and renamed the Lavinia and was used as a blockade runner. Near the end of the war she caught fire at sea, and put into Havana Harbor. Federal forces took her again and rebuilt her in 1869 as the bark 'Elliot Ritchie'. She was abandoned at sea in 1884.

The Ship Model Shop USS Arleigh Burke DDG51 Guided Missile Destroyer - 22 Inches Long, 1/250

Wood and Metal Model Kit,   Box Condition: VG

$245   

Very rare and highly detailed model from Allen Baker's legendary Ship Model Shop. This was the last kit he issued, and there are two personally signed letters from Mr. Baker included with the kit. Very high quality kit features 90% factory finished hardwood hull, perfectly cut and crisp wood superstructure parts, a vast number of cast metal fittings, a large sheet of photoetched brass details, wood, plastic and metal stock as required, a beautiful set of dry transfers designed by Mr. Baker and custom made by Chartpak. Paperwork includes instructions, plans, sales material, color photos and various photocopies of plans. Carefully inventoried against the included parts list and NOTE: missing (2) of (16) small bitts and the (4) flat Aegis Antenna Enclosures; very easily made by cutting them from sheet styrene. All original paperwork is included but please NOTE: Mr. Baker had difficulty in releasing this final kit. So the instructions are generic (from the FFG7 kits) and a set of assembled plans. He apologizes in the letter for the standard of documentation. I only recommend this model if you are comfortable building a ship from plans.
