Scale: 1/144

Set includes 2 rangefinders.

The 4-meter SL-8 rangefinder served the 105mm anti-aircraft battery of many World War Two, heavy German Navy warships including BismarckTirpitzScharnhorstGneisenau, and the heavy cruisers Prinz EugenAdmiral Hipper and Blücher.  These rangefinders likely would have been fit to the Graf Zeppelin class aircraft carriers, super-battleships of the planned H-Klasse and battlecruisers of the planned O-Klasse.  They were nicknamed "Wackeltopf" ("wobblypots") by their crews.
