Notes from our tech department:
This is a 1/350 Plastic German Battleship Bismarck from Tamiya.
It's for ages 10 and up.

On May 24th, 1941 the Royal Navy dealt one of its most shattering blows.
The 42,000 ton German battlecruiser Hood was destroyed after an attack that
lasted only eight minutes. The Bismarck was the largest and most modern ship
in service with the German fleet. Three days after the most celebrated sea
chase of the Second World War, which involved no fewer that three British
battleships, two battlecruisers, two aircraft carriers, nine cruisers, and
countless destroyers, the Bismarck was reduced to a blazing hulk. This came
only nine months after she was commissioned.


Plastic pieces attached to sprues and molded in gray.
Ready to assemble precision model kit.
Exterior surface of hull is covered with minute engraved details.
The deck of the ship is brimming with startling details like:
-Railings and windows
-Huge turrets
-Life boats
-Ladders and stairs
RE-280 Motor is not included.
If you can't afford to build your own 41,700 ton battleship but
still want one, then pick up this highly accurate model.
A large plastic stand with a "Bismarck" nameplate is included for
display purposes.
