The Christie, Airfix 20442, Scale 1:12 Airfix

£80.00

Product description

The Christie is an Airfix injection-moulded plastic kit with the full title of 'The Christie: 1911 American Steam Fire Engine'. It has the model number 20442, from 1982, and is manufactured to a scale of 1:12.

The box has been opened, but the kit is complete and all of the polythene packs remain sealed (some were not originally sealed). There are two scuff marks on the top part of the box where sellotape was attached - one on the top/side and the other on the side. All of the corners have been knocked. The bottom, un-illustrated, part of the box is less damaged from knocks. There is also a separate protective sheet of corrugated card inside the box. The box measures 660 x 385 x 90mm approximately. It has a large photograph of an assembled model on the top with other angles and close-ups on the sides.

The contents are:
(i) three sellophane packs of silver effect components (originally unsealed);
(ii) a sellophane pack of gold effect components (originally unsealed);
(iii) a sellophane pack of four sets of black components (sealed);
(iv) a sellophane pack of four sets of red components (sealed);
(v) a sellophane pack of two sets of red components (sealed, but some of the components have become detached from the sprues);
(vi) a sellophane pack of three sets of grey components and the two parts of the base (sealed, but some components have become detached from the sprues);
(vii) a strip of clear plastic components for the lamps/headlights;
(viii) a sheet of decals, which are in good condition apart from a few near one edge;
(ix) an instruction booklet.

According to the blurb on the box, "The backbone of America's fire fighters prior to World War I, the Christie was in service in most major cities across the country. The Christie was actually a modernisation of the turn-of-the-century horse drawn steam pumpers using a front-wheel drive tractor designed by Walter Christie, best known as a race car designer and the 'father' of front wheel drive technology. Christie's design extended the useful life of the colourful steam units well into the gasoline-engine era. The Christie was designed from an actual vehicle restored by the Community Fire Company No. 1 of Wayne, new Jersey."
