1/232 H331-300 Revell SMS Seeadler (Sea Eagle) German WWI Commerce Raider
Plastic Model Kit, Box Condition: Exc-
Rare 1966 kit of a fantastic subject - the famous WWI sailing commerce raider of Count Felix Von Luckner. The SMS Seeadler was a unique WWI raider in that it was not designed to elude the British blockade and break out to sea...it was designed to pass right through the blockade within full view of the British before attacking allied shipping around the world. No detail was overlooked in the Seeadler's preparation, right down to a Norwegian-speaking crew. The plan went perfectly - and the Seeadler passed inspection at the British Blockade. Her non-threatening appearance helped her in an active and colorful raiding career that nearly went around the world. I highly recommend reading any of several books that you can find about this ship. Von Luckner himself became quite a celebrity for his exciting exploits. Very well detailed kit. Never started. All parts are still in the factory sealed bag. Instructions and all other paperwork is present and still sealed in the factory bag.
