Round 2 (i.e., Lindberg) has announced the reissue of Pyro’s classic Mayflower.
One of the early units of Pyro's "Antique Ship" series from the 1960s, the Mayflower was designed for younger modelers with simple, fast construction and a minimum of parts. The ship was later issued by Life-Like and by Lindberg.
According to Round 2:
“This famous ship of the Pilgrims set sail from England to the New World on September 6th, 1620. With a crew of 30 and 102 passengers, the Mayflower took 66 days crossing the Atlantic to America landing in Cape Cod. On December 16th, 1620 the Pilgrims dropped anchor in Plymouth Harbor, where they founded the Plymouth Colony, one of the first English settlements in America. This plastic model kit release from Lindberg pays tribute to this historical vessel.
“This month set sail with the Pilgrims on the Mayflower. Build this 1:250 replica of the famous ship that establish the first English settlement in the new world. The Mayflower is joining Lindberg’s growing fleet of small scale sailing ships. At 5.5 inches long the kit is packed full of detail with molded flags, preformed sails, decorative hull and wood grain deck”.
The Mayflower includes new packaging featuring the 1963 boxart, easy-to-follow instructions, display base with nameplate and Cartograf decals. The new decal sheet includes flags, name for display and stern decoration.
The ship is available from various on-line retailers ranging in price from $9.00 to $12.00 (US) plus shipping.
