The kit has never been started. The small parts that were factory sealed are still in the sealed bags. The parts that were not factory sealed (larger wood parts and sheets of wood) have been inventoried complete including decals and instructions. Please note that the decals have bug damage to the backing paper but the actual transfers are undamaged. The plans have light, even bug damage as well which will not affect building the kit. Berkeley is a very famous manufacture of flying model kits from the Golden Age of flying aviation, about 1932-1954. Founded in 1933 by William Effinger, the company was quite progressive in producing quality kits - it was likely the Berkeley 'Buccaneer' was the first gas powered model in kit form. In the later 1930s, Effinger acquired the services of a very talented Henry Struck. Struck went on to design numerous award-winning kits under the Berkeley name. Berkeley weathered the post WWII recession and emerged as a major kit producer in the late 1940 and 1950s. These were great years for Berkeley and they produced some incredible and large kits. The company went bankrupt in about 1960 however. Fox engines (Duke Fox) bought the company and released the kits alongside his own FOX models and engines. This arrangement did not last, and in the early 1960s the Berkeley name disappeared from hobby shop shelves.

Features 7 sheets of richly illustrated building instructions. Never started; nothing has been cut out and all the sheets are in excellent condition. 100% complete. From Wikipedia: SMS Baden was a Bayern-class dreadnought battleship of the German Imperial Navy built during World War I. Launched in October 1915 and completed in March 1917, she was the last battleship completed for use in the war; two of her sistersSachsen and Wrttembergwere incomplete when the war ended. The ship mounted eight 38-centimeter (15 in) guns in four twin turrets, displaced 32,200 metric tons (31,700 long tons; 35,500 short tons) at full combat load, and had a top speed of 21 knots (39 km/h; 24 mph). Along with her sister Bayern, Baden was the largest and most powerfully armed battleship built by the Imperial Navy. She was scuttled a Scapa Flow. However, she was the last ship to begin scuttling, and the British were alerted. As a result, she was the only capital ship not successfully sunk in the scuttling. The ship was refloated in July,[4] after which she was towed to the British naval base at Invergordon. The British, painfully aware of the shortcoming of some of their designs, examined Baden patiently and completely. In the end, naval historian Arthur Marder wrote in 1969 that it was his "considered opinionwhich I know coincided with that of others engaged on the same jobthat, considered as a fighting machine, anyhow on balance the Baden was markedly in advance of any comparable ship of the Royal Navy". The ship was expended in weapons tests, where it proved to be as tough at the other legendary German WWI designs.

Wilhelmshaven TS Bremen (V) Ocean Liner 1958 - (ex-Pasteur 1938), 1/250, 1000

Cardstock Paper Model Kit,   Box Condition: Exc+

$32   

"Large scale, very highly detailed cardstock model. Beautifully color printed on 6 exceptionally large sheets of quality cardstock. No painting required - just build! Includes full instructions in German. Never started; nothing has been cut out and all the sheets are in excellent condition. 100% complete. NOTE: due to the very large sheets, this kit will be shipped rolled up in a tube unless you request otherwise. From Wikipedia: After a very active career as the French ocean liner Pasteur, she was acquired by North German Lloyd and renamed TS Bremen in 1957, she was extensively rebuilt at Bremer Vulkan in Bremen for approximately 65 millions DM. Her size was increased to 32,336 GRT and the load-carrying capacity with 8,700 tdw. She received new boilers and four turbines with a maximum output of 60,000 HP rendering a maximum speed of 26 knots. Economical output of 53,500 HP gave a very useful speed of 23 knots. Three 1,375 KVA generators had an output of 6,600 kilowatt. One very noticeable change was the new drop-shaped funnel, which was much more in proportion with the ship than the original tall funnel. To enhance comfort, two 4,50 m Stabilizers were fitted. In June 1959, she underwent new sea trials. The ship was very popular. She was sold January of 1972. After another refit, which changed her tonnage to 23,801 tons, the TSS Regina became the flagship of Chandris Cruises and inaugurated her Mediterranean service, calling at Limassol for the first time on May 19 and taking passengers from Cyprus to Beirut, Haifa, Heraklion, Piraeus, Katakolon, Corfu, Dubrovnik and Venice. Regina continued calling at Limassol regularly every two weeks and her cruises became extremely popular.She cruised the world until 1974, when she was laid up in Piraeus because of rising fuel costs and the loss of emigration charters to Australia. She later sank while being towed to the breakers.
