Question about model of USS TUCUMCARI

Recommended Posts

Hi Guys,


Anyone know where I can get an example of the old AURORA or REVELL kit of the Hydrafoil TUCUMCARI? Not the newer 1:350 scale kits. But, either the AURORA or REVELL version?


Thanks,


Tim

Hello Tim:

An Aurora one just went recently on eBay (sadly, I didn't get it). I wasn't aware of Revell or anybody else doing a plastic Tucumcari kit. I'd love to see somebody reissue this kit.

 

Cheers,

Scott

For some reason, I thought it was. Was I wrong?

No mention of a Tucumcari in the list of kits at the end of the Thomas Graham's Remembering Revell Model Kits book, but it only goes up to the end of the 70's.

 

However, there's an Aurora one on Ebay right now listed for $49.99 with 3 days left and no bidders. Find it here:

Hi Ron,

 

Thanks!!!!!! At some point, I'll get that kit too. And, now - with 3D printers, I can replace its 40mm and make more accurate 50s and the turreted 3-inch 50 too!
