Modelo : Seasider
The Seasider is a Wave 3 release and utilizes the standard US casting. The base and motor do not appear to have the final of zinc plating and tend to be duller than the
domestic examples. The paint colors on the CIPSA versions differ from the US versions. The black trim paint on the front grill and lower side panels of the US version
is omitted on the CIPSA version. The CIPSA interior is white and the glass has a blue tint whereas the interior in the US version is black and the glass is clear. The
authenticity of the boats is unknown.
- Mustard Yellow
- Metallic Red
- Metallic Blue
- Metallic Green
- Medium Caps in front
- Large Caps in rear
The first CIPSA Seasider showed up on eBay on March 30, 2005. Most Seasiders are in poor condition but remarkable, one or two in each metallic color have been found in near mint
condition. All Mustard Yellow enamel examples are in lesser condition. The motor is missing in some Seasiders due to to poor quality spins. The Seasider is relatively rare for CIPSA.
