The “Bismarck”, at 42,343 tons was, for her time, the largest and most up-to-date battleship in the world (next to the “Hood”). On 24th May 1941, in a sea battle, together with the heavy cruiser “Prinz Eugen”, at the pack ice frontier of Greenland, with a direct hit by the 5th salvo from her 380 mm guns she sank the largest British battle cruiser the “Hood”. Launched on 14th February 1940 at the Blohm & Voss shipyard, Hamburg, together with the similar “Tirpitz” she was the most up-to-date and prestigious ship of the German navy. With a length of 251 m the top of the mast stood 52 m above the surface of the sea. She was protected by a total of 17,450 tonnes of steel armour plating. The newly designed heavy artillery fired 800 kg projectiles up to a range of 34.2 km and were capable of penetrating 350 mm armour at 21 km. Although the “Prinz Eugen” suffered no direct hits in the battle of 24th May, the “Bismarck”, which was damaged in the bow, made for a French harbour. In the subsequent pursuit by British ships and aircraft, on 27th May 1941 a torpedo hit the rudder and after being hit by the superior numbers of the Home Fleet she was disabled and sunk in the Atlantic about 800 km off the French coast. Of the 2,092 men on board, 115 survived.

    As you can expect with Revell products it’s realy nice to make but has some flaws here and there, but nothing you can not fix with a bit of work. I aint building it like the box says but with some PE and lighting in it, this kit is ideal for doing this as you have so much space for it all.
    Arived well in time and was good packaged, but the kit had one part that was broken, still looking into getting a replacement for it.
    Would recoment using PE for the extra details.

    I am giving this kit 5 stars because it is the best kit I have ever assembled, and at 80 yrs of age I have assembled more than a few. The parts are a perfect fit , and very detailed.it is a pleasure to fit each part, imagining it is the real. I know it was necessary, but to sink such a magnificently beautiful ship was heartbreakingly sad. Still building it so still enjoying every minute of it.

    Very nice kit, without question the most detailed kit in the cheaper 1/350 range, nice that all underwater inlets are included, rails all present, main deck windows and doors all there, the other 1/350 Bismarck built but another leading model maker is missing all that detail, also main deck is a single sheet, this is a nice feature as no sanding down to try and get the decks flush, excellent detail in the decking, nice decal sheet, also good painting guide, only critisism is had a bit of difficulty fitting to main deck to the hull on the port bow, just did not fit perfectly, overall a pleasure to build and look at – I would recommend to anyone
