Revell 1/232 SMS Seeadler (Sea Eagle) German WWI Commerce Raider, H331-400 plastic model kit

1/232 H331-400 Revell SMS Seeadler (Sea Eagle) German WWI Commerce Raider

Plastic Model Kit,   Box Condition: VG+

Rare 1966 kit of a fantastic subject - the famous WWI sailing commerce raider of Count Felix Von Luckner. Very well detailed full hull kit. The parts are molded in three colors - wood tan, black and light gray. Features detailed deck, fittings and cabins, preformed rat lines, vacuform sails, running and standing rigging materials, flag sheet, full rigging instructions, silver braided anchor 'chain' and more. Never started. NOTE: missing the following deck fittings - #38 rectangular grate, #54 port cathead (starboard one is present to use as a master), (2) #55 anchor stocks and (2) #66 davits (two others are present to use as a pattern). Otherwise inventoried with all other parts, instructions and flag sheet. The SMS Seeadler was a unique WWI raider in that it was not designed to elude the British blockade and break out to 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. Instructions and all other paperwork is present and still sealed in the factory bag.
