Bernd Villhauer shows what can be done with an older kit. This is the Airfix 1:600 scale kit of Scharnhorst. What makes this kit unique is that it depicts the ship in 1939, as built with an
almost straight cutwater, flat funnel top and aircraft catapult on Caesar turret. This configuration proved to be very wet on the forecastle, so both ships were sent back to the yard to add a
clipper,
Atlantik, bow, raked funnel cap and deletion of the turret catapult.
