Scale: 1/96   (1/8 inch = 1 foot)

Set includes 2 barrels properly spaced on a 1.04 cm diameter trunnion, enough to equip 1 turret.

This set of scale cannon barrels represents the 38 cm (15") main battery of the World War Two-era Deutsche Kriegsmarine battleships Bismarck and Tirpitz, more properly known as 38cm L/52 SK C/34 naval rifles.  The weapons were installed within Drh L C/34 mounts (turrets).  These weapons were also intended to be fit to a reconstructed battleship Gneisenau.  For more information about these weapons, see:


  • overall dimensions match Krupp factory drawings as published in Anatomy of the Ship: The Battleship Bismarck by Jack Brower
  • details confirmed by careful study of photographs of the real ships
