Set includes 3 rangefinders.
The 10.5-meter and 7-meter rangefinders served the 380 mm main battery guns of the World War Two-era German Navy battleships Bismarck and Tirpitz. These models represent the original, as-built appearance of the rangefinders and the boxy, armored stations surrounding them. Two of the rangefinders are similarly shaped. Install the shorter of the two aft.
- overall scaled dimensions match drawings published in Anatomy of the Ship: The Battleship Bismarck by Jack Brower
- details confirmed by careful study of photographs of the real ships
- accurately sized and positioned bolthead detail
- accurately shaped rangefinder and viewfinder ports
These model rangefinders are NOT 3D-printed copies of any plastic, wood or resin kits' parts therefore they may be sized and shaped differently than the parts in your plastic, wood or resin kit. Some adjustment to your kit's parts or other aftermarket sets such as photo-etch may be needed for best fit.
