HMS Hermes RN aircraft carrier 1930s (earliest Wiking casting)

Sale: £47.45
Save: 5% off
An extremely scarce model by the famous German maker Wiking from their very beginning of production -described on the Wiking history website as:

Produced 1932-34

Slate casting, gray with very dark gray flight deck, identification HE . Cast bipod mast, 1 wire crane made of very strong material behind the island, dinghies cast. No support strut between flight deck and fuselage. No guns

This model is in good original finish, paint a little worn but still very good, and appears slightly different to description with support strut under flight deck, but otherwise identical to description so possibly a transitional casting. Probably amongst the earliest Wiking you will find -I've certainly never seen one this early. A very fine model.
