Identifying model battleship


Recommended Posts

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?

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.

Borodino (1:200 Card, Current Build)

Admiral Nakhimov (card 1/200)

Mazur D-350 Artillery Tractor (1:25 Card) 

F-8 Crusader (1:48 Aircraft, Plastic)

Hi Captain Slog, Gary and Robin Lous,

Thank you all for your help!


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