Description

#5050/11D Germany, the real liner of which this was replicated was billed as the largest in the world, and this Marklin toy example is the largest in their toy fleet, it is almost overwhelming in detail with little exception to true scale and accuracy of appointments; as Mr. Claus points out, even the life preservers hangs on the rail across from the pilots house, the multi-level railing is quite unbelievable, and it continues with the flying bridge and all deck areas, ten lifeboats from a full scene of luxury liner necessities, two funnels replicate the original liner in true portrayal as the multiple ventilators, flags and overall color scheme; superstructure lifts to reveal a very sturdy steam engine. 46" long.

Condition

Absolute minimum of restoration to piece; includes two lifeboat replacements, enhancement in small areas of hull. Not often found in nearly this condition, a rarity. (Exc. Cond)
