Ideal Aeroplane & Supply SS America Ocean Liner / Troop Ship USS West Point / S.S. Australis - Wooden Ship Kit, 1/330, 605

Wood and Metal Model Kit,   Box Condition: VG+

$325   

Very rare and an excellent example. Large wooden and metal kit builds to just over 26 inches long. This model is of the SS America Ocean Liner, which was designed by the famous naval architect William Francis Gibbs. She was laid down in 1938 and entered service on August 22 1940 as the flagship of the United States Lines. World War II interrupted her passenger service. The ship was active through the war. She narrowly escaped being sunk off Singapore during the Japanese invasion. After the war she resumed her North Atlantic route. The liner was the pride of the US Merchant fleet before the USS United States was commissioned. When the 'Big U' entered service, the two liners were stable mates and often appeared in the same travel agency posters and prints. By 1964 aircraft had taken a large section of the ocean liner travelers away, and the America was sold to Chandris Group and was renamed the Australis. She sailed for 14 years in a very successful career and was the last liner to sail from Southampton to Australia/New Zealand. She was laid up in 1977. She changed owners several times, but was never again successful. While being towed to Thailand, the lines broke and she ran aground in the Canary Islands, where the wreck broke up after time - but not before the locals rescued many items from the ship. The model box is very good and the kit inside is in as-new condition. Features pre-carved hull, metal fittings, very large full size plans, print wood and heavy cardstock, clear material for windows, color flag sheet, building instructions with perspective views and rigging material and diagrams. Never started. I believe that I was the first one to remove the parts from the box when I performed the inventory. All of the fittings are either still in factory sealed bags or inventoried complete. The parts that were never sealed are 100% complete including plans. You can convert it to the USS West Point if you have photos of the ship (which are on the internet) - the main difference is the addition of lifeboats and different paint. Photos of the S.S. Australis will provide the needed data to convert her to that ship, but this conversion will require more work than the West Point. Please NOTE: this kit must be shipped insured. The travel agency poster does NOT come with the kit and is used for illustrative purposes only.

Master Modelcraft Supply Co Brig Washington - Commodore Famous Ship Line - 17 Inch Long And 12 Inch High Highly Prefabricated Wood And Plastic Ship, C-2

Wood and Plastic Model Kit,   Box Condition: VG

$129   

Very, very rare model from 1954. Everyone knows of the Master Modelcraft aircraft kits. The ship kits are much rarer, and the Commodore Series was their 'flagship' of the modeling line. In an attempt to simply the difficult task of making wooden parts look like an intricate ship, they created perhaps the ultimate prefabricated classic ship models with completely finished wooden parts, metal fittings and numerous plastic parts. This model features a factory-finished wood hull, one sheet of die-cut printwood, and the rest of the parts are metal or plastic: there are 37 injection molded plastic parts from bulwarks to masts and yardarms and cast metal deck fittings as well. The model kit has never been started. The small metal and plastic parts (with the rigging thread) are still in a factory sealed clear bag. The other parts are still attached to the blue factory presentation cardboard or inventoried complete. With excellent instructions, large full size plan with two sides including many other drawings, rigging diagram, section view and step-by-step text instructions. Master Modelcraft Supply Company listed their address as N.Y. 66, New York during the early 1950s. The costly Commodore Series included C-1 Revenue Cutter, C-2 Brig Washington, C-3 Brig Boxer and C-4 Baltimote Clipper. Each was $2.95, a small fortune at that time for hobby kits. This contributed to their demise, low production numbers and rarity today. They also made a lesser line of ship kits that were prefabricated, but not to the level of the Commodore Series. They were all wood with metal fittings (part numbers B-1 through B-18). The Brig Washington was built in 1838 and was originally schooner rigged. In 1838 she was rerigged as a brig. During most her career she engaged in hydrographic work. Her 12 pound gun had a unique arrangement on a rotating turret-like platform amidships, enabling it to have a great field of fire. Upon the outbreak of the Civil War, the Washington was seized by the Confederacy and armed with one huge 42 pound carronade and impressed into the Confederate Navy. She was finally scuttled in 1862 near New Orleans to prevent capture by the Union Navy.

Ideal Aeroplane & Supply Golden Hind Flagship of Sir Francis Drake - 18 Inch Long, 318

Wood and Metal Model Kit,   Box Condition: VG+

$159   

Rare kit from 1950 that is in amazing condition. This is one of Ideal's rare top of the line ships, the 'flagships' of the line. Measures 18 inches LOA when assembled and features an 80%+ precarved solid wood hull, four large bags of numerous factory-sealed cast metal fittings (well over 100 pieces), realistic deck grate material, seven sheets of quality printwood, other completely precarved and shaped wooden parts, a large sheet of beautiful sail cloth, masts, yards and wood stock in many sizes, running and standing rigging material, full color flag sheet insignia and more. Includes excellent full size plans and instructions which look like they have never been opened. However, since I have seen the plans, I can tell you that they show numerous sectional and detail view of the ship and even a painting guide. There is a separate instruction sheet, which was unusual for Ideal. Inside, this kit is factory-new. The fittings are all sealed in the original clear factory bags, which are neatly stapled to the light blue Ideal 'parts card.' the sail cloth, masts & yards and printwood are all held together by the original factory rubber bands. The hardwood turned mast parts are still sealed in the factory wax paper bag. Even the original (wadded) factory packing paper is present. The box is the finest I have seen, but NOTE that the corners had split; I have correctly repaired them from the inside using cardstock and book binding glue.

Ideal Aeroplane & Supply Marion Sprague Three Masted Schooner 1899 - 29 Inches Long, 601

Wood and Metal Model Kit,   Box Condition: VG

$265   

Very rare, large-scale deluxe edition from the late 1940s/very early 1950s. This version is hardly ever seen. Measures 29 inches long and 16 inches high when built. Features a 90%+ cut factory wooden hull, four factory sealed bags of metal fittings (over 100 fittings total), a large sheet of beautiful sail cloth, numerous hardwood dowels and pre-cut square wood of many sizes, metal stock, two types of rigging thread, colorful flag sheet and fantastic full size plans that have detailed assembly instructions and rigging diagrams. Inside, the kit is exactly as it left the factory. The fittings are all in clear bags stapled to the original Ideal 'blue' backing cardstock. Sail cloth, printwood and wood stock are all held together with the original factory rubber bands. Even the original factory packing tissue is present. The box is complete and very nice, but the corners are repaired from the inside correctly as they had split. The plans have never been unfolded but have some damage to one side from the way they were packed by Ideal. They are still completely usable. The three-masted Marion Sprague schooner was built in 1899. Being far more economical to operate than the large, two-masted schooner, they soon monopolized all coastal trade up and down the US seaboard after the civil war. Ideal was a famous producer of early model kits. In 1911 they released their first aircraft kit, which put them among the first USA model companies. Ideal was unique also in that they released large civil ships and ocean liners.
