Recommended to build the Scharnhorst class battleship Gneisenau from:
- Airfix 1/400 scale Scharnhorst -or- Gneisenau
- Heller 1/400 scale Scharnhorst
- Heller 1/400 scale Gneisenau
- JSC 1/400 scale German battleship Scharnhorst, tanker Ölschiff 4 (ex ADRIA)

This accurately shaped and detailed model represents the upper forward superstructure of the German battleship Gneisenau as it appeared during Operation Cerberus, "The Channel Dash", in early 1942. It includes an enclosed admiral's bridge. This model is a direct replacement part for Tamiya's 1/700 scale Scharnhorst class battleship Gneisenau kit. A separate design for 1941, as the ship appeared during Operation Berlin, is available separately (click here).
This model is scaled to represent the features of the actual ship based on the best, authoritative references available. It is NOT a 3D-printed copy of any plastic or resin kit's parts therefore it may be sized and shaped differently than the parts in your plastic or resin kit. Some adjustment to your kit's parts or other aftermarket sets such as photo etch or wood decks may be needed for best fit.
