The 203mm SK C/34 battery was placed in four twin turrets, two forward and two aft.
The Hippers were also armed with 4 x 3 533mm torpedo tubes (12 total), 12 105mm SK C/33 AA guns, up to 3 aircraft, and a host of medium and light AA weapons, increased through the life of these ships.
Prinz Eugen's Dimensions: Trumpeter's new 1/350 DKM Prinz Eugen fill s a long present void in the lineup of plastic ship models.
Now, you can have an escort for your Bismarck, or the newly announced Dragon DKM Scharnhorst.
This heavy cruiser kit appears in a 1945 fit, instead of a 1941 or 42 fit.
Presumably, this choice was made because the best data for the model came from archives in the United States, dating from after the war when Prinz Eugen was in the US hands.Eugen's hull is molded in Trumpeter's standard 2-piece hull; grey upper hull, red plastic lower, with an red hull plate for the waterline option.All the parts fit very well together, with virtually no seam- the best I've seen from Trumpeter yet.The upper hull has no mold lines, flash or other defects.Other fine details are the scuttles with brow, armor belt and degaussing coil.The lower hull exhibits Trumpeters usual heavy mold marks, but appears to have the proper bulbous forefoot of the Hipper class.
