|The 2 Sqns of the 5 min fleet|
2 photos of one of the 5 Deutschland Class Ships, Schleswig-Holstein to give you an idea of the detail on the model.
There was just one of the preceding Braunschweig Class at the battle, the lead ship. Very similar to the Deutschland but some of the secondary guns were in turrets giving them better elevation.
|A couple of Helgoland Class made this batch|
I placed an order a while back with Magister Militum for the remaining 8 German Dreadnoughts required however following the sales at Salute they only had 2 left, so here they are. Great looking ships, not sure how much snapps had been drunk when they decided the turret layout, looks like a Friday Afternoon design to me !
