Item Description: Translate description
Professionally built wood model of 1934 J-Boat yacht designed by William Starling Burgess and built for Harold Vanderbilt. RAINBOW won the Cup that year but was defeated in the defender trials in 1938. She was scrapped in 1940. The model is 18 in long and 25 in tall, has excellent detail, and comes with a beautiful class case and wooden stand. BUT, at some point in its life the model was vandalized by an angry child (?), a jilted lover (?), or maybe a spouse or ex-spouse (?) who cut all of the rigging. However, a competent model builder can repair the damage with skill, patience, and eyesight well beyond mine. The model also comes with a well-padded shipping container if you decide you want to send it off to a pro for repair. OR, display like it is and enjoy the beautiful lines of the yacht.
