Item Description
13-3/8x20.5x2.5" deep cardboard box w/nicely illustrated lid label depicting "The New Erector" zeppelin docked at "Erector" tower w/cutaway image of airship at lower left. Box contains set that was unnumbered, being pieced together at the end of Gilbert's Zeppelin line in 1931 and sold as in 1932 in this cardboard box rather than a wooden box. Box shows obvious wear along edges/corners of lid w/splits, tears and noticeable fading at edges. Small portion of one corner missing. Box lid is Good/VG. Lid label has a few scuffs and is Fine. Rest of box has three corner splits (two w/tape repairs to interior) and fading to bottom. VG. Set contains unused and complete parts for assembling detailed zeppelin. This includes illustrated instructions, patent sheet, metal struts, nose cone, tail section w/fins (which have either "Erector" name or star decals), propellers as well as inner support structure and outer cloth covering w/"The New Erector" name and cardboard box labeled "Parts Box." All remains unused and Exc. This is the only known boxed example. Rare. Barry Lutsky Collection.
