Original WWII U.S. Navy Miniature Teacher Models of German Fleet in Case - Complete Set of 16 Ships
Original Item: Only One Available. This is both amazing and interesting. Manufactured during WW2 specifically to assist both Naval personnel and aircrews to identify German WWII ships from a distance.
There were instances of attacks taking place on friendly war ships so with these models pilots could become familiar with vessels from a great altitude and sailors from a distance on the horizon.
This set is contained in a wood chest measuring 16 inches by 11 1/2 inches that opens like a book to display 16 individual slots each containing a German Fleet model vessel. Each vessel is made from lead is marked with the ship's name or class on the bottom.
In all this set has 16 vessel models ranging from Aircraft Carrier to battleships to mine sweepers. Everything is painted battleship grey. Each model has incredible detail, however, just a few may be missing a small fitting or two.
The original U.S. government issued wood chest is stenciled in black paint:
