The masts are original and the radio wires are still there. The wires will need to be reattached as they were only draped for the photos. This piece is in great all original condition with no restorations, repairs, or touch ups that we could detect. The lithos and paint are in great overall condition with the usual patina, scratches, fading, dings, scuffs and chips that are seen with age and display. There is a dime sized chip and dent on of the right side of the hull.This particular model is a challenging paint coloration to find and comes from a well esteemed collectors estate.
