Product Description
Highly detailed 1/128 Scale DKM Graf Spee Turrets 28cm/52 (11") SK C/28. These are highly detailed replacement parts, each turret is unique as modelled from plans and many reference photographs and information. These parts are NOT lifted from computer game models like some other Shop Owners parts. Check to see which sellers show separate renders of their items not just the Shapeways default render. Barrels are printed seperately and can be angled as desired.

Details include:
  • Accurate armour thickness on all faces.
  • Accurate sighting ports (open), rivets, hatches and rangefinders
  • Slight differences from Scharnhorst/Gneisenau Main Guns
  • Rangefinder hatches open revealing rangedfinder detail
  • Barrels printed separately and can be angled as desired
  • Available in all other scales

This weapon was used on the famous Panzerschiffes or "Pocket Battleships" Lützow (ex-Deutschland), Admiral Scheer and Admiral Graf Spee. The turrets were fitted with RPC only for elevation.

The shells used for these guns had inferior ballistic characteristics when compared to those for the later 28 cm SK C/34.

These guns had 28 cm Psgr.m.K. L/3,7 armor-piercing projectiles, which were more or less a 'warmed-over' Krupp 28 cm Psgr.m.K. L/3,4 post-1911 World War I AP projectiles with a slight decrease in weight, a blunter nose, a thicker AP cap and a more pointed windscreen to increase range. They were still just as poor at oblique-angle impact as their older brothers, having the same '0.5-caliber-KC-penetration-at-500 mps-and-30°-obliquity' specification as did the pre-World War I design. Both the older projectile and this newer one barely met that requirement. These guns also had a very blunt-nosed SAP-type Common projectile (Spgr.m.Bdz) with only light AP penetration ability, though the blunt nose shape gave it good thin-deck (British and French 'Treaty' cruisers) penetration at long range, which was probably what it was for.Nathan Okun

The construction of this weapon was similar to that of the 28 cm SKC/34, but the jacket was in one piece.

All German 28 cm guns had an actual bore diameter of 28.3 cm (11.1").

Cleaning Information
Some part cleanup will be necessary. The 3D printing process uses a waxy substance to support certain part features during the printing process. Although the parts are cleaned by Shapeways, some waxy residue may remain.  It can be safely removed with water and a mild aqueous detergent like "Simple Green" using an old, soft toothbrush, Q-tips or pipe cleaners. During the printing process, liquid resin is cured by ultraviolet light. Microscopic bits of resin may remain uncured.

Let your parts sit in direct sunlight for a few hours to fully cure the resin.  
Water-based acrylic paints meant for plastics is strongly recommended. Other paints, especially enamels, may not cure on Frosted Detail 3D-printed plastics.
Use dedicated model sprue cutters to remove parts to minimise the risk of damage to parts.
