Initially released in 1956, the Cathedral is the most impressive of the churches that were produced by Bachmann.
The walls are held together by locking tabs located at the edges of each wall. These are often found broken. Also, it is very difficult to find this church with the paper felt "stained glass" window backings intact. This is especially true for the front wall (No. in the listing below).
In addition to this problem, are the small parts that are contained in this kit. The GOLD plated bell and cross are frequently broken or missing (No. and No. shown below). Also, the bell clapper (No. ), is often missing.
These problems make this the most difficult of the churches to find complete and undamaged.
The current issue of this church has a CHROME bell. The older issues came with a GOLD bell as is illustrated below.
