PRESIDENT JACKSON: 1940 - Rare Van Ryper wood model

Product Description

American President Lines – An 11” long wood model, circa 1940, of the PRESIDENT JACKSON made by the famed ship model firm of Van Ryper.

The scale works out to around 1:500th.  Van Ryper’s simple but well-made detailing shows through with cargo booms, hatch covers, lifeboats with davits, and even the APL eagle logo on the funnel.   

APL contracted for seven C-3 combo liners in the late 1930s.  The PRESIDENT JACKSON took her maiden voyage in October 1940 and made two around-the-world voyages before being taken over by the Navy in June 1941.  This ship and four later sisters never returned to civil duty.  Only the last two, PRESIDENT POLK and PRESIDENT MONROE, came back to APL after the war.  The PRESIDENT JACKSON and her four Navy sisters went to the scrappers in 1973. 

This rare model was probably made by Van Ryper in 1940 or 1941 during the short time the ship was in civilian service. 

Excellent condition with a little bend to one set of cargo booms.
