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 sisters- Sachsen and Wurttemberg- were 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 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 opinion- which I know coincided with that of others engaged on the same job- that, 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.

Strombecker Lockheed VTO XFV-1 Vertical Take-Off Fighter, 1/72, C50-89

Wood Model Kit,   Box Condition: VG+++

$95   

Strombecker was famous as the premier hardwood preshaped model manufacturer before plastic kits were introduced. In the 1940s and 1950s, Strombecker kits were flawlessly engineered but not inexpensive. All wooden parts are hardwood and are precarved to shape - usually only a quick sanding would finish them. This kit is hardwood with many plastic injection molded parts, so it was produced in the transition from wood to plastic. The prop hubs, spinner, tip tanks and fuselage are wood, while the wings, prop blades, scoop and tank fins are red plastic while the canopy is injection molded in clear. Full color decals are furnished as well as a "Join the Strombecker Model-Makers Club" brochure. The kit has never been started. It has been inventoried complete with all parts and includes decals, instructions, sandpaper, sanding stick and club form present.
