Lindberg British Battleship Hood Motorized, 1/400, 763M-500

Plastic Model Kit,   Box Condition: NM

$129   

Rare motorized 1st issue in investment-grade 'near mint' condition inside and out. The box has stunning, like-new color and gloss. There is no tape or price tags, and no marks from tags or tape. All four corners are solid and original and there is no fading, torn or missing litho and zero stains. The only flaws are very light wear in a few isolated locations. This is a large motorized kit that sails well. One electric motor drives the ship on a course that you pre-set - figure 8, straight or circle. While sailing at a good rate of speed, the four main turrets slowly swing from port to starboard together and the guns elevate. I remember sailing mine for years before the batteries died in the middle of the lake. There is no assembly. Inside, the kit is in 'factory new' condition and still packed exactly as it left the factory. The gray parts are still wrapped in the factory wrapping paper, while the small metal parts are in the factory sealed clear bag. Inventoried complete with all parts, color flag sheet and instructions.
