i am hoping he will have a stall or something during KEEL WEEK, so i can spend too much money!
: Yes, this version was the first one produced
: by Neptun. It shows up with some frequency
: on eBay and depicts the ship in the mid to
: late 1930s. Sometime in the late 1980s or
: early 1990s when they had to redo the
: moulds, they revised the model to show it
: circa 1941. It is worth getting.
: --Previous Message--
: The only version of this model I have ever
: seen depicts her as she appeared at Pearl
: Harbor...more specifically with the gun and
: radar mount details on top of the gun
: control directors.
: However, the Neptun website shows an earlier
: version of the ship without these
: details...which is one I would like to have.
: So, I have come across something on eBay I
: never seen...a version of the model shown on
: Neptune's website.
: I asked the seller in my best Google
: translated German if the photos were
: actually taken by him or if they were stock
: photos. In his best translated English I
: think he has stated that I would be getting
: the model in the photos, which could still
: mean anything.
: I mostly buy planes and avoid purchases of
: harder to find models from sellers who use
: stock photos because while the description
: may be what I'm looking for, they use a
: generic photo of a more recent release and
: it's not what I'm looking for.
: So did this version actually exist? Has
: anyone purchased from this seller and know
: him to sell what is actually pictured (not
: questioning his integrity here)?
: Thanks for any help!
