Product Description
Catalog (click here)

Scale: 1/100

Recommended for:
  • and more! 

This model represents the 15cm L/55 (5.9"/55 caliber) twin-gun turrets (without rangefinder) of the World War Two-era Deutsche Kriegsmarine battleships Bismarck, Tirpitz, Scharnhorst and Gneisenau.  The turret is properly known as the SK C/28.  This version has integrated rangefinder armored hoods.  A 15cm turret with integrated barrels and blast bags is available separately (click here).  Versions representing Bismarck's and Tirpitz's middle pair of turrets with rangefinders are available separately (please see the catalog).

For a detailed description of the actual weapons, click here.

Features:
  • overall dimensions scaled from Krupp factory drawings.  The 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
  • separate barrels on a trunnion allowing the modeler to set the barrels to any realistic elevation from -10 degrees to +40 degrees, just like the real turret
  • accurately sized and positioned bolthead detail

NOTICE: this product is available in either "White Strong and Flexible" nylon or "Frosted Ultra Detail" acrylic.  If you choose to have this product printed in the more economical "White Strong and Flexible" plastic, a kind of nylon, please be advised that customers are generally unhappy with this material for static display models where surface smoothness and detail are more important than durability. 

"White Strong and Flexible" nylon is waterproof and durable, a good choice for Radio Control models that get wet.  When compared to "Frosted Ultra Detail" acrylic, sharp edges appear less defined and more rounded when printed.  Being nylon, the material is generally not sandable and fewer types of paint will adhere to it.  Care is recommended in choosing a paint that will adhere to, and fully cure upon, nylon.  

Customers report that White Strong and Flexible nylon, when compared to Frosted Detail plastic, will have noticeable striations (print lines).  Applying thin layers of primer meant specifically for nylon can help create a smoother surface.  Google "primer for nylon" and "paint for nylon" to find good choices.

For static display models where surface smoothness and fine detail are more important than strength and durability, please choose "Frosted Ultra Detail" acrylic instead for much better surface smoothness and detail.
