1/381 H5203 Revell N/S Savannah Nuclear Merchant Ship - Revell Germany Issue
Plastic Model Kit, Box Condition: VG+
Rare 1980 German issue with unique box art. Kit features viewable detailed reactor, rotating props, movable rudder and 12 booms, cargo pallets with barrels/sacks/crates that fit into the holds, display stand and full decals. Very well molded kit and probably the best of all NS Savannah models between this and the Adams and ITC offerings. The Savannah was the wonder of her time and she operated without incident, carrying cargo and passenger around the world. Although outfitted as a merchantman, she was given luxury quarters for passengers as a promotion of the peaceful uses of atomic power. The waiting list to ride as a passenger on the Savannah was years long, but worth the wait. If you are interested, there is an excellent National Geographic article (from the 1960s) about her and contains great photos. This model has not been started. NOTE: part 14, reactor piping, has a section broken off and that section is missing. A replacement can be fabricated from stock round plastic or pulled sprue. Complete with all other parts, decals and instructions.
