I WILL TRY TO NOTE ANY THAT I SEE, BUT OTHERS MAY EXIST. PLEASE LOOK AT THE PHOTOS. Battleship in 1/1250 scale. This is a model of the American Battleship of World War One and Two, the USS TEXAS (BB-35). TEXAS was the last Battleship built prior to World War 1 and was completed in 1914. TEXAS served first in the Incident at Tampico, Mexico after commissioning, and during the First World War served with the Grand Fleet in the Atlantic in the North Sea, escorting several convoys. The battleship was declared a National Historic Landmark in 1976. This model is of TEXAS circa 1945. She was 573 feet long, 95 feet wide and of 27,000 tons displacement, and was capable of speeds up to 21 knots. TEXAS was originally armed with ten 14 guns, twenty-one 5/51 guns and four torpedo tubes. By 1945, her 5 guns were reduced to six. Their AA armament was increased with 20mm and 40mm guns during the war. She carried two aircraft. TEXAS had a crew of 1,810 seamen and officers. This model was made by renowned model firm NEPTUN owned by Rudi Kraus of Germany, who also makes the fine NAVIS and COPY line of shipmodels. This model is in 1/1250 scale and is approximately 5 3/4 long. This is a waterline hull version and comes painted. These are highly detailed scale models made for the Adult collector. THESE ARE NOT FOR CHILDREN. This model is in very good condition. I may have made an effort to improve the condition of the model by straightening and touch up small chips. There may be a few 20mm barrels damaged or missing. These models do not have the original box and packing. Models will be packed and secured safely for transit to you.
