I WILL TRY TO NOTE ANY THAT I SEE, BUT OTHERS MAY EXIST. PLEASE LOOK AT THE PHOTOS. Light Cruiser in 1/1250 scale. This is a model of the American Light Cruiser of World War Two, the USS NASHVILLE (CL-43). The NASHVILLE was of the BROOKLYN class Light Cruisers completed in 1937-38. This class of seven Cruisers served in most theaters during the World War Two. None were sunk in action during the war, but several were heavily damaged. They were all decommissioned in 1946-47, but five were transferred to South American navies where they served for many more years. The Argentine GENERAL BELGRASNIO (ex-PHOENIX) was sunk during the Falklands war in 1982. This model is of NASHVILLE circa 1943. She was 606 feet long, 62 feet wide and of 9,767 tons displacement, and was capable of speeds up to 32.5 knots. NASHVILLE was originally armed with fifteen 6 guns and eight 5/25 guns. Their AA armament was increased with 20mm and 40mm guns during the war. NASHVILLE had a crew of 868 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 6 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 fine to very good condition. I may have made an effort to improve the condition of the model by straightening masts and guns, and touch up small chips. These models do not have the original box and packing. Models will be packed and secured safely for transit to you. Please look at our other Listings!
