1/456 710-249 Aurora German Sea Raider Atlantis 'The Rattlesnake of the Ocean'
Plastic Model Kit, Box Condition: Good+++
Please read carefully as this kit is missing parts. First issue. The hardbox is dated 1959 and has the "Famous Fighters" in the oval 'Northern Lights' logo. Dramatic Jo Kotula artwork. This is the only model ever made of the famous (or infamous) German WWII converted merchant raider which was the subject of several books and a major movie called 'Under Ten Flags'. The long WWII voyage was legendary, and the ship is well represented in this full hull model. Covers can be removed to reveal hidden guns, torpedo tubes and the Ar-196 floatplane. The box has four solid corners, no repairs and vibrant color - but there is wear and creases as shown. The model has never been started. NOTE: missing four parts - (3) small stanchions (they look like vents and can be easily made) and (1) box gun cover. Otherwise inventoried with all other parts, decals and instructions. Shipping insurance is required.
