1/456 710-249 Aurora German Sea Raider Atlantis 'The Rattlesnake of the Ocean'
Plastic Model Kit, Box Condition: Fair
First issue. The hardbox is dated 1959 and has the "Famous Fighters" in the oval 'Northern Lights' logo. This is the only kit made of the 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 kit has never been painted but has minor assembly - the AR-196 floats have been glued to the floatplane. Quality of assembly is excellent with proper alignment and no excesses glue. There is no other assembly. Inventoried 100% complete with all parts decals and instructions. NOTE: three small deck fittings were taken from a unpainted built up 'Atlantis' to make this kit complete. The three parts came off very easily and are in excellent condition - the glue was so old that the locater pins are still intact. Shipping insurance is required.
