Shortly after being declared ready for service, she took part in the Norway campaign. Despite alert defenses, Blucher and Lutzow sailed up the narrow passage with hopes of landing their infantry on target. The Norwegians were not fooled opened fire with 15cm shore batteries, immediately scoring hits on Blucher and then Lutzow. Blucher ran from the arc of the guns but stumbled onto an alert shore torpedo battery, which scored two devastating hits. The Blucher had the distinction of of being the only capital ship sunk by a shore-based torpedo battery during WWII. It is interesting that the old adage about shore based guns and ships was tested yet again and found to be true. It is reported that the Germans did not even know where the fire was coming from. Such long term, completely immobile defenses should have been well documented.

Sold   

Original issue in superb 'near mint' investment-grade condition. The box has factory-new color and gloss, four solid corners, no repairs, no fading, tags or tape (other than the factory sealing tape) and no torn/missing litho. The only flaw is very light surface wear. Large 1/350 scale full hull kit. ITC issued this kit in 1961 and capitalized off the success of the movie about the Spee; however, ITC discontinued all larger plastic models in 1962 which makes this kit hard to find. Many sources list this model as 1/350; it may be 1/366 depending on several finer factors. The kit has never been started. Inventoried 100% complete including decals/stickers and instructions.

Sterling Taylorcraft - 21 Inch Wingspan Flying Aircraft, Peanut, K5

Wood Model Kit,   Box Condition: Sealed Exc+

Sold   

Still factory sealed. A well engineered, highly prefabricated model featuring all die-cut quality balsa parts, a large number of completely formed parts including fuselage sides, top and bottom, wing sheet covers, tail feathers, etc, finished wheels, plastic cowl & prop, rubber motor, hardware set, clear window material, colored tissue, color decals, full size plan and separate teaching instructions sheet. The Taylorcraft BF12-65 was first manufactured in Alliance, Ohio in 1941. Many of these sharp looking airplanes have been kept in great condition by faithful owners across the country. The Taylorcraft was an easy aircraft to flyl and was very forgiving. The glide radio was an impressive 22 to 1. With the 65 hp Franklin engine, the aicraft has a cruising speed of 96 mph and a top speed of 112 mph. My father's first aircraft was a used Taylorcraft. He purchased it around 1954 while he was in high school. The airport manager allowed him to make payment, which he did by working as a delivery boy for the local grocery store and by waxing cars at $5 each. The airplane still exists and is flown today from it's base in New York.

Hobbyboss SMS Seydlitz Battle Cruiser With Scaledecks Wooden Deck, 1/350, 86510

Plastic Model Kit,   Box Condition: Exc++

Sold   

Includes the factory sealed Scaledecks.com laser cut, real wood deck for this kit. The actual model is from completely new molds. It is very highly detailed and finely molded. Includes three large frets of PE details including railings. The kit has never been started. The parts are still in the internal factory sealed bags and includes decals and instructions. SMS Sydlitzs played a very active part in the Kaiser's WWI Navy and has the distinction of very likely being the world's most heavily damaged ship to make it home on her own power. German WWI ships were tough to sink, but this has been incorrectly attributed only to the design. Indeed, the designs were effective in resisting catastrophic events (like magazines explosions), but the German damage control was truly superior and efficient, with and emphasis- above all else -of keeping the ship afloat. While that sounds rather obvious, very often other factors were allowed to interfere.

Lindberg Sea Witch Clipper Sailing Ship (ex-Marx), 1/96, 813

Plastic Model Kit,   Box Condition: Sealed NM

Sold   

Still factory sealed. 1979 issue that used the original Marx Sea Witch/Swordfish molds. A beautiful and well detailed model with over 500 parts that measures 33 inches long when assembled. The world's largest toy manufacture, Louis Marx, spared no expense in this early 1950s entry into the growing field of plastic models. The model claims to the first time that anyone could build a museum-quality large ship at home. The claim is correct since the kit pre-dates the Revell 1/96 Cutty Sark. Full hull kit features complete deck fittings, extensive standing and running rigging instructions, optional billowing sails (in 'excellent' condition'), crew members, rigging thread and metal chain. It is usually molded in several colors (I can't confirm that as it is still sealed) just like the original Marx issue.
