Revell BB-38 USS Pennsylvania - Battleship Sea Power Issue, 1/426, H422-198

Plastic Model Kit,   Box Condition: VG+

$85   

Hardbox is dated 1961. Rare kit of the Arizona's sister ship. Very nicely molded and detailed full hull kit. It can be superbly super-detailed with the Gold Medal Model PE detail set. The kit has never been started. Inventoried complete with all parts including decals and instructions. Please NOTE that the instructions have light bug damage and the decals have bug damage to the backing paper, but the the actual transfers have no damage. Also, part #19 had a chip out of it, so I included another #19 in mint condition from a later issue. The Pennsylvania was in dry-dock during the December 7th Pearl Harbor attack and survived with minimal damage. She was rebuilt and saw significant action in the Pacific in WWII, steaming over 150,000 miles from 1941 to 1945. It is thought that she may have fired more ammunition than any ship in history. She never once reported 'Not Ready' for any operation or need. After being used as a nuclear test ship at Bikini, she was towed to Kwajalein and sunk.

Revell SMS Dresden Light Cruiser - WWI German East Asiatic Squadron / Coronel / Falklands, 1/350, 05001

Plastic Model Kit,   Box Condition: Exc

$85   

Very well detailed and molded full-hull kit. Never started. Factory sealed internal bag with instructions, decals and flag sheet present. The story of Dresden's short career in WWI is fascinating. She was serving with the German East Asiatic Squadron; near the start of hostilities they made a voyage across the Pacific Ocean hoping to go around South America and return to Germany via the Atlantic. The squadron came across Sir Christopher Cradocks British Squadron in the South Pacific at Coronel. There the Germans won a great victory over Cradock; the problem was that now the Germans were sited and their intentions known. The British positioned battlecruisers at the Falkland islands in anticipation; they did not have long to wait. When the Germans were sighted, the British casually got ready then sailed, knowing their superior speed and gun range could make short work of the biggest ships the Germans had. The British were correct; the Germans were soundly defeated off the Falklands. However, the Dresden was the only German ship to survive. She went back around Cape Horn in the Pacific and successfully hid for several months, only to be eventually found near Mas a Tierra (Chile) by Glasgow and Kent. Knowing that escape was impossible, the Dresden was scuttled by her crew. The wreak still lies in the harbor today.

Revell HMS Campbeltown (USS Buchanan) Destroyer, 1/240, 2502

Plastic Model Kit,   Box Condition: VG

$59   

Advent issue. Large scale and highly detailed kit of the historic four-pipe destroyer. 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. Never started. Inventoried 100% complete with all parts, decals, flagsheet and instructions.
