Plastic Model Kit,   Box Condition: Sealed Exc+

Still factory sealed. 2010 reissue of this large-scale and nicely detailed kit of the historic four-pipe destroyer. Full hull model has 128 parts, full propeller and rudder detail, complete superstructure and deck fittings, decals and more. On March 8, 1942, the Campbeltown sailed up the Loire River. Her mission was to destroy the Normandie Drydock, a possible haven for the Tirpitz which was holed up on Norway at this time. The Campbeltown was disguised as a German warship and the bow was packed with 8500 lbs of high explosive depth charges. Under a RAF diversion, Campbeltown fought her way up the river and rammed the dock doors at full speed. Charges at the stern sank the back of the ship and she was wedged in the dock. During a German inspection 8 hours later, the charges went off, scattering parts of the ship up to one mile away. The dock was rendered useless to the Tirpitz, who now had to stay in Norway.
