Bluejacket Liberty Ship EC2-S-C1 - 27 Inch Long Wood and Metal Ship, 1/192, 1025

Wood and Metal Model Kit,   Box Condition: Good

$219   

Museum quality craftsman kit. Features hardwood, kiln-dried, precarved hull, extensive high quality cast Britannia fittings and other hardwood and metal parts as required. Includes very detailed full size plans and instructions. This issue is from the late 1980s or early 1990s. The kit has never been started. The parts that were never factory sealed (hull, wood and metal stock) have been inventoried complete. Most of the fittings are still in factory sealed bags in the factory box; the few fittings bags that were opened have been inventoried complete. Includes plans and instructions. The Liberty Ships were built in vast numbers very quickly in response to the emergency shipping requirements of WWI. German U-Boats put tremendous pressure on Britain and the USA to maintain supply lines. Generally British in design, the Liberty Ship borrowed much from later WWI designs and was adapted to American mass-production techniques. Over 2700 were built, easily making is the most produced ship (of one class) in history. The replacement in 1944 was the Victory Ship, of which Bluejacket also makes a model.

Billing Boats Bluenose II Racing Schooner - Plank on Frame Wood Ship, 1/100, 600

Wood and Metal Model Kit,   Box Condition: Sealed Mint

$119   

"Still factory sealed. Scale model of this world-famous and beautiful schooner originally from 1929. 1:100 scale kit measures 16.93""H x 20.47""L x 3.35""W. From the Billing website - ""All of the 600 Series Model Boat Kits (item numbers 600-609) include an easier way of building the hull. The hull is assembled in halves, on a table. This allows for easier assembly and is quite useful in learning plank-on-frame or plank-on-bulkhead construction! Once each half is done you join the two for a completed hull. Make sure you work each half in opposite directions so that when joined they marry up evenly!"" The schooner Bluenose has a very special place in the history of navigation and yachting. Built to fish off the Newfoundland coast, the ship soon turned out to be such a fast sailer that she won all the great classical regattas along the USA's Eastern coast. She was built in Nova Scotia in 1929, and shipwrecked near Haiti in 1946. A true copy - Bluenose II - was launched in 1964"

Comet USS Perch SS-176 Porpoise Class Submarine, 1/300, J4

Wood Model Kit,   Box Condition: Good

$44   

Rare. The plans call this the Perch but have a 'P5' designator on the conning tower. From the layout I believe it to be SS176 - but there was a time when "P" codes were used on American submarines. This model measures 12 inches long when complete and features a factory 3D carved hull that needs sanded to the round shape, two sheets of quality printwood, wood stock, sandpaper and even full decals. The plans are excellent and show hull sections, many detail drawings and have instructions and paint guide. The kit has never been started. It has been inventoried complete with all parts, decals and instructions/plans.

Ace Whitman USS Seadragon SS194 Submarine (Sargo Class) - Balsa Ship Model Kit, 1/169, 2994

Wood Model Kit,   Box Condition: Good-

$79   

Rare, large scale 22 inch long hollow display model likely from the 1940s. It builds up with hull bulkheads and stringers and is intended to be tissue or silk covered, although it would be much wiser to either cover it with thin balsa or plank it like a plank-on-frame ship model. The photos (on the back of the box and on the plans) of the built model are impressive and realistic; no doubt, you can make an incredible, almost one-of-kind kit from it. However, there is a great deal of scratch building expected, which is typical of kits from that time. It is certainly not recommended for beginners. The builder should be highly experienced with stick and tissue methods and scratchbuilding fittings and more.
