USS STONEWALL JACKSON MODEL

Postby swiz1611 » Wed Aug 18, 2010 6:41 am

Hello everyone!

I have a few questions regarding this submarine model that I obtained from a friend. My friend's Dad was in the Navy and died recently and left all his Navy stuff to his son. Well my friend told me to take what I wanted for yourself because he was giving the rest away to charity.

Well I took the this submarine model because it looked pretty cool. Its a model of the USS Stonewall Jackson about 26" to 27" in length. It has a plastic case around it mounted on a wooden board.

From what he told me he said he built it himself but I don't know if you had a modeling kit or bought one and put it together. Another thing I have no idea if he just bought it from a dealer.

I'm just trying to find out the value of this thing. Can anybody help me out if you might know a general value or someone I can talk to that can tell me?

Having looked this thing over, I suspect it only has a very limited value. I suspect it to be a plastic kit. A bad plastic kit, with not much care taken to asccurately portray Stoney J.
We didn't have vertical stabilizers when I was on it (78-80), in overhaul at Portsmouth, NH, and the screw is pitched backwards! That is the one on the model is set up for counterclockwise rotation. All US boats rotate clockwise. If I looked closer, I'm sure I'd find more boogers.

Oh, yeah! The draft marks and hull numbers are the wrong style and size, too!
