- overall dimensions scaled from Krupp factory drawings. The dimensions match drawings published in Anatomy of the Ship: The Battleship Bismarck by Jack Brower
- details confirmed by careful study of photographs of the real ships
- accurately sized and positioned bolthead detail
- accurately shaped and detailed rangefinder, visible within:
- accurately shaped armored rangefinder hoods with open shutters
- Turret "Anton", the forward-most turret on the ship, accurately has its rangefinder removed and the openings blanked.
- Turrets "Bruno", "Caesar" and "Dora" have accurate armored rangefinder hoods with open shutters. The rangefinders are visible within the hoods
Note: the armored rangefinder hoods are thin and are somewhat fragile. Caution during handling is recommended.
These model turrets were designed from official drawings of the real turrets. They are NOT 3D-printed copies of any plastic or resin kits' parts therefore they may be sized and shaped differently than the parts in your plastic kit. Some adjustment to your kit's parts or other aftermarket sets such as photo etch may be needed for best fit.
