The Tirpitz and the Bismarck were the largest battleships in the Second World War. The Tirpitz, with a length of 251 m, went into service on 25.02.1941. On completion of the training runs, in January 1942 she was transferred to Norway in order to prevent an expected British invasion. First of all the Tirpitz operated against convoys, but at the end of 1943 she went out of use. Numerous British attacks had continued to inflict substantial damage. Ultimately, an air attack on 12.11.1944 led to the total loss of the ship. Finely detailed components with rivets and recessed panel lines give an authentic reproduction of this imposing battleship. A special feature of this model kit is that the numerous structural differences from her sister ship the Bismarck have been reproduced like the original.

Paint and thinners classify as flammable liquid and can only be sent via our specialised contract to Mainland UK as they are dangerous goods. The cost of this is rather high per parcel so we have a minimum paint/thinners order of 6 tins/bottles to allow us to reduce the postage cost to our customers.
The minimum order is 6 tins of paint or bottles of thinners or a combination of both. 1 bottle of thinners counts as 1 tin. The paint can be a combination of any colour and tins within coloursets count as individual tins. If you require any help with this please contact us.
We can send out orders of less than 6 tins/bottles but they incur an extra postage charge. Please contact us if you wish to order less than the minimum.
