Life-Like HMS Bounty Famous Mutiny Ship, B250-125

Plastic Model Kit,   Box Condition: Good

$22   

The famous mutiny ship of Captain Bligh and Fletcher Christian fame. About 8" inches long when assembled. Very nicely detailed medium-size kit from Pyro's line of sailing ships. The medium models were originally called the '$1.00' ship line, which were a significant step up in size and detail from the '50 cent' series. Very nicely molded with wood planking and grain detail, full deck with many separately molded fittings and cannon, one piece masts, separately molded ratlines and billowing sails as well as a display stand. NOTE: kit has minor assembly. Hull halves have been assembled; quality is professional; no gaps and no visible glue. There is no other assembly. 5mm of the port half of the figurehead is broke off the hull and missing; the starboard side is intact, so it is difficult to see this defect. The deck and sails have been neatly painted. You can use them as-is or paint directly over them. The kit has never been started.
