SMS Seeadler - Wooden Sailing Ship Model by Billing Boats
Model of the World War I German raiding ship commanded by Felix Von Lückner.
Possibly the only warship to fight under sail in World War One, and probably
the last. A very successful raider that posed as a Norwegian Lumber ship.

The completed model will measure ~34" X 21".

Kit contains all original parts including complete set of cut and sewn
sails, 8 spools of rigging thread, planking, nails, ship and rigging plans.
NO metal deck furniture or fittings included. This kit has been discontinued
by Billing Boats and is no longer available. http://www.billingboats.com
