Revell Germany 1/700 scale Battleship Tirpitz

Adding aftermarket decals and photoetched-metal railings, AA guns, radars, and other fittings could make this model kit a contender in any contest.

Sister ship of Germany’s legendary battleship Bismarck, the Tirpitz was launched in the spring of 1939. Although she was about three meters longer than Bismarck — making her Germany’s biggest battleship — she was largely held from action for fear of her being sunk as Bismarck was in May 1941. Tirpitz spent most of the war moored in Norway, where she was attacked several times before finally being sunk by Royal Air Force Lancasters in November 1944.
