1/150 80804 Heller Pamir
Sealed Exc+++ Injection Molded old
Still sealed. Very, very large and highly detailed kit. Measures 75 cm in length and 40 cm high. 738 parts. Has billowing vac sails and full rigging supplies and instructions. The Pamir was bulit in 1905 at Blohm & Voss shipyards to become the 51st ship in the fleet of R.F. Laeisz of Hamberg ("The Flying P Line" was a reference to the starting letter of most of the ships names and the numerous records that they held). She was a four masted barque of 4425 tons with a crew of 33. She saw extensive trade service between the wars and served in both World Wars. After WWI she was given away as compensation; however her original ower bought her back in the 1920s. Before WWI she was sold to a Finnish cereal shipping fleet. Her beauty saved her from torpedos from a Japanese Submarine - the Commander simply could not sink so wonderful a ship. In her 40th year of existance, the Pamir was bought with the Passat by a Dutch demolition crew. Yet at the last moment the West German merchant marine bought both ships to train cadets in the 1950s. The Pamir was lost in an Atlantic storm in 1957.
