Bluejacket NS Savannah - 37.5 Inch Long Wood And Metal Ship Model, 1/192

Wood and Metal Model Kit,   Box Condition: Exc

Sold   

Very rare and the larges, most detailed kit ever made of this stunning ship. Museum quality craftsman model in large scale. Features hardwood, kiln-dried, factory-carved hull, hardwood factory-carved superstructure, extensive high quality cast Britannia fittings and other hardwood and metal parts as required. Includes very detailed full size plans and text instruction booklet. The kit has never been started. The fittings are all still in the factory sealed bags. The parts that were never factory sealed (hull, wood and metal stock) have been inventoried complete. Includes all paperwork. NS Savannah was the first nuclear-powered merchant ship. She launched on July 21, 1959. The total cost was $46.9 million which including a $28.3 million nuclear fuel reactor. Funding was from United States government agencies. Savannah was a demonstration project for the potential use of peaceful nuclear energy. The ship was named after the first steamship to cross the Atlantic ocean, the SS Savannah. She was in service between 1962 and 1972 as one of only four nuclear-powered cargo ships ever built. Savannah was deactivated in 1971 and after several moves has been moored at Pier 13 of the Canton Marine Terminal in Baltimore, Maryland, since 2008. Fortunately, she is being restored as a museum ship and some tours are available with special arrangements. I was fortunate enough to tour the ship when she was docked at Patriots Point, South Carolina back in the early 1990s. Much of the interior was in such poor condition that the museum had locked or disabled all doors leading into the ship so that visitors were restricted to the outside only. Leaving portholes open to staterooms and general lack of funds to keep the ship lead to the neglect.

The Wickes-class destroyers were a successful class of 111 destroyers built between 191719. Along with the 6 preceding Caldwell class and 156 of the very similar Clemson class destroyers, they were commonly known as "flush-deck" or "four-stackers". Although built very quickly (some set a record, like the USS Ward), only a few were completed in time to serve in World War I, including USS Wickes, the lead ship of the class. These Four Stackers saw a great deal of service; the Ward fired the opening shots of WWII and the Ruben James was the first US ship sunk. After the transfer of many of these ships to the British (who were terribly short on destroyers), one of the Lend-Lease ships, USS Buchanan became the HMS Campbeltown which rammed and destroyed the French docks that were big enough to repair the Bismarck class battleships.

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.
