We have for sale a vintage TMY wood battery operated destroyer. This came from a nice clean non-smoking estate. The previous owner served in the military for many many years. This actually came off of the shelf in the basement.
We have not cleaned it or detailed it or done anything with it. This is exactly the way we found it sitting on the shelf. This is what I can tell you. Overall length is approximately 25-1/2 inches. At its widest point, it measures close to 5.In the title I listed this as TMY and ITO. As I understand the history of these models, I do know that some of these had different parts by different manufactures intermixed. The motor clearly is marked TMY.
I do not know if the rudder or propeller was made by ITO or not. I did include the ITO in the title to help people find this listing. Parts may be made by them or not.On the end of the wood crate it is printed PO:BJ 62382 1B-1018-8 DESTROYER. The wood crate measures 28-3/4 x 6-5/8 x 7-1/8 tall. Also on the end is what I would imagine the price? It is labeled 8.35.
On top written in pencil is Capt. As stated, we have not cleaned this or done anything with it.
I really thought about detailing it and dusting it. On second thought, this is exactly the way we received it out of the estate and we want to pass it on to an expert like yourself to clean and or restore as you see fit. We have not put batteries in it and we have not tested it.
This is out of the 1950s and does have a few chips here and there. Thats to be expected from a vintage item.We will carefully bubble wrap this and take the best care we can to ensure its safe arrival to your location.
