Märklin Style Gunboat Late 20th century

A handsome and well-crafted bench built battleship inspired by and reminiscent of Märklin's best. Railed walkways, furthering the illusion of lower decks, flank rotating gun turrets and three recessed guns on each side. Deck centers multi-tiered superstructure featuring tall masts, twin funnels, elaborate walkways, hand-crank winches, and four whimsical tapering ventilators over double-barreled gun turrets fore and aft. Stern features railed terrace. Bow adorned with elaborate scroll and cornucopia figurehead.
