Unternehmen Rheinübung (Battleship Bismarck and Heavy Cruiser Prinz Eugen)
This is the recreation of the two ships Bismarck and Prinz Eugen.
About this creation
Operation Rheinübung ("Rhine Exercise") was the sortie into the Atlantic by the new German battleship Bismarck and heavy cruiser Prinz Eugen on 18–27 May 1941, during World War II. This operation to block Allied shipping to England culminated in the sinking of Bismarck.

I build the german battleship Bismarck and the heavy cruiser Prinz Eugen. Both in a scale of 1/700.

Quoting Michal Hennel Oh wow, I am sorry for overlooking this ... these two ships were the target of that famous pursuit after they sunk HMS Hood. I am glad to see them :) Battleships were always questioned for their effectivity, and this clash was one of few battleship battles. I wonder how would it be if Bismarck had somehow survived and would become a museum ship as American battleships are ... model is great, I am amazed how you can make something as composite as battleship into such great scale ... Maybe you could make some MOC as reconstruction of naval battle :) 5/5
thanks. The Bismarck survived? I dont know what would happen but as far as I know, the Prinz Eugen survived as the only big vessel the war and was sunk during a Nuke test in the Bikini atoll in 1946.

Quoting Matt Bace Wow! Absolutely amazing renditions of these two famous warships, done at a very reduced scale. The details are at a level that I would expect from models several times the size. Is there any chance that you'll be adding to this collection with a Scharnhorst/Gneisenau or Admiral Scheer/Graf Spee?
I would say, why not? :)

Quoting Achintya Prasad Oh, well. I don't know of any other way, really, to get a gun like that. Will you be photoshopping some images? If not, I would be willing to give it a shot ;-)
Why not. :)

Quoting Achintya Prasad This: http://www.bricklink.com/catalogItem.asp?P=4592c05 Or maybe Mini-figure screwdrivers: http://www.bricklink.com/catalogItem.asp?P=6246a
I tried them all... the levers are too short, the screwdrivers a little bit too small too. :/ U dont know how much different versions i have of the main turrets.

Quoting Achintya Prasad Would mini figure levers not work?
They are too small :/ Or what u mean?

Quoting Achintya Prasad Heh, it appears that we both had the idea to build battleships at about the same time ;-D Anyways, nice work, as usual Locutus! Only thing, if this is in 1/700 scale, shouldn't the main guns on the Bismarck be a shorter? Those appear to be roughly the same length as the ones I used on my 1/350 scale.....
Not really. both mocs are a little bit older. Remember my first bismarck here? The 1,000,000th one here on mocpages? This is maybe version 2.0 of it. Yes the barrels should be a little bit shorter but they are about the same length as the rest of the turret structure.

Quoting Michael K. Great job on all the superstructure details, I was just reading an article about these ships the other day.
