Hi everyone,

 

I found this model battleship in a local op shop last weekend. It's 16.5 inches (42 cm) long and it doesn't have any identifying labels. I don't know much about ships. Could anyone please let me know what ship this model represents?

 

Cheers,

Chris

Hi Chris,

It looks like the Bismarck in what I believe is the Baltic colour scheme.

There are a number of build logs of the Bismarck in the kit build log section of the forum.

Cheers
Slog

Hi Chris,

Looks like the Bismarck or Tirpitz, if you google you will find images.

Hi Captain Slog, Gary and Robin Lous,

Thank you all for your help!
Cheers,
Chris

 

*EDIT: this webpage compares the Bismarck and Tirpitz - https://www.bismarck...vs_tirpitz.html - the model matches the Bismarck more closely based on the placement of the cranes and also fewer AA guns
