The kit has never been started. It has been inventoried complete with all parts and includes instructions. The front 2/3 of the bow tip is cleanly broken off and present; it is included and is an easy fix. The Harriett Lane was built in 1858 and named for President Buchanan's niece. The cutter was 180 feet long with a 30 foot beam and displacement was 670 tons. Armament consisted of 3-9 inch Dahlgrens and 1-30 lb Parrot Rifle. She was built at a time when steam was not fool-proof, so she is rigged for full sails. Harriett Lane served as the Presidential Yacht, the fired the first shot of the Civil War. She chased down blockade runners until January 1, 1863 when she was attacked by five Confederate gun boats and boarded. She was captured and renamed the Lavinia and was used as a blockade runner. Near the end of the war she caught fire at sea, and put into Havana Harbor. Federal forces took her again and rebuilt her in 1869 as the bark 'Elliot Ritchie'. She was abandoned at sea in 1884.

Superior Plastics The Seeing Eye Anatomical Model, 1/375, 3100-200

Plastic Model Kit,   Box Condition: Good++

$24   

Hard-to-find and dated 1961. A very nice kit featuring a very large eye (2x size) with life-like muscle movement, all internal and external parts, skull section that it fits into (doubling as a display base) and heavily illustrated, color instruction book. Molded in ivory and clear. The kit has never been started. It has been inventoried complete with all parts and includes decals and instructions. Superior Plastics Inc. listed their address as 426 N. Oakley Boulevard, Chicago12 , Illinois. They called themselves 'Custom Molders and Extruders.' From the sounds of things, Superior was an injection molding and extruding job shop which decided to go into the business of making model kits - and they did, cutting molds for a significant line of educational style model kits. Science kits appeared as early as 1962, and possibly earlier. Superior often referred to the kit line as 'Superlon' on the box top and instructions. The first building kit, 'Statue of Liberty', has a copyright of 1963. This kit was designed to be lit from the inside and came with lamp accessories. The second kit was the Taj Mahal and the third 'The Lincoln Memorial,' which could also be illuminated from within. Other kits included 'Yankee Stadium', 'United Nations Building', 'The Deep Sea Lobster', 'The Giant American Bull Frog', 'Unit of Life - Animal Vegetable Cell' and 'Amoeba.' They are best known, however for the anatomy series - 'The Thinking Man Human Skull', 'The Thinking Matter Human Brain', '3-D Human Body', 'Modern Man Skeleton', 'Vital Organs', 'The Beating Heart', 'The Mighty Molar', 'The Visible Pumping Heart', The Five Senses series with 'The Seeing Eye', 'The Listening Ear', 'Anatomy of Taste', 'Anatomy of Smell', 'Anatomy of Touch' and the 'World of Sensation', which was all five senses in one giant kit. The company was quite innovative and even had a patent on action for the Visible Pumping Heart. Sometimes the same kit was issued without a display case and sometimes with under a different part number. Other kits are said to exist are 'Grasping Hand' and the Skull and Brain together. Superior eventually sold off the molds, but the exact date is not know. Early boxes do not have zip codes, but later boxes list 60612, so production at least went into the later 1960s. The science kit molds were sold to 'Educational Products Inc' (EPI) and most of them were reissued. MDK bought the 5 building molds and reissued them all along with the Marx White House before the ceased production. The Statue of Liberty used to be for sale in the on-sight gift shop and still may be. Lindberg later purchased the all the science molds from EPI and have reissued many of them.
