Ideal Aeroplane & Supply CV-7 USS Wasp Aircraft Carrier - 18.5 Inch Long Wooden Ship Kit

Wood Model Kit,   Box Condition: Exc

$155   

Very rare kit from 1941. Measured 18.5 inches long when assembled. Nicely designed kit that includes a very unusual detailed hanger deck assembly. Issued shortly before the war, the model was not reissued after the war since the Wasp was lost off Guadalcanal by what is likely the most damaging submarine torpedo salvo in history. Includes completely pre-molded and shaped wood-material hull in excellent, solid condition, 5 sheets of cleanly done printwood, wood stock in many shapes and sizes, a sealed fittings packet (I can tell that it contains at least the oval funnel) and two packs of Casco Glue. Features excellent full size plans and instructions. The plans show numerous detail view of the ships substructure and a detailed view of the hanger deck, flight deck with pre-war markings and island. Never started. Factory sealed fittings bag with the other parts inventoried complete with instructions.

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.

The parts are still wrapped in the plans exactly as they left the factory; the plans have age wear and light damage to the corners and short tears on some long sides. Overall they are 'good' and certainly fine enough to use if you choose to build the model.
