Ideal Aeroplane & Supply Revenue Cutter - 12 Inches Long, 1110

Wood Model Kit,   Box Condition: Good-

$38   

The plans are dated 1938. This kit is part of Ideal's famous '12 Inch' series of ship models with the composition molded hull. This eliminated all the work of forming the hull from a block of wood. This hull is in 'near mint' condition with no warping and no damaged, just a few tiny edge chips at the top hull line. Also includes two sheets of printwood parts, bamboo strips, wooden dowels, full plans/instructions which include rigging details. The kit has never been started. It has been inventoried complete with all parts and includes the plans/instructions. The box is generally very nice but is missing the large flap on the left side. The parts are still wrapped in the plans exactly as they left the factory; the plans do have a little wear, mainly in the corners and are in 'very good' condition.

Otherwise inventoried with all other parts and instructions. Die-cut wooden parts have not been punched out and are intact in the sheets.
