In very well-preserved condition. Complete, no broken elements.
Old exhibition model, therefore small and slight exposure flaws: the paper warps slightly at some places on the deck and there is a small lack of paint on the upper deck pool. slightly rippled waterline with a spot marked with blistered paint or glue residue, as well as a stain.
All without altering the general aesthetic.
The plexiglass case shows some fine scratches and traces of use.
The Michelangelo has a dual career: passenger pleasure transport and military transport for troop and quartering.
