Classic "Great Western" Ship Model Kit (Airfix) *SOLD*
[RARE]
$165.00

(Sorry, out of stock...SOLD for $165.00) Classic "Great Western" Ship Model Kit, from Airfix. This is the LARGE BOX version of this scarce kit, with fantastic artwork (possibly Roy Cross) on the boxtop. The Great Western was the first ship specifically built for the Atlantic Ferry Service and was designed by I.K. Brunel (who designed the Great Eastern). When launched in 1837, she carried 120 first class, 20 second class, and beds could be set up for an additional 100 if needed. The crew was 60 men. The first crossing of the Atlantic Ocean was in April of 1838 and took just over 15 days. After crossing the Atlantic 64 times, she ran for 10 years between Southampton and the West Indies before being broken up in 1857. This INCREDIBLY RARE British kit is in MINT CONDITION, from over 40 years ago...all parts still in factory bag, includes billowing sails, ratlines, and flag. A wonderful piece for the model collector! Out of stock.
