add Tirpitz to this
You can add Tirpitz too. If I remember rightly the Airfix model had deck-mounted torpedo tubes, which I am sure the ship never had.
However, we should remember these models, and all the other Airfix models, were likely tooled in the late 1950s or early 1960s, and it's unlikely their model engineers had accurate drawings, but I might be wrong here.
Neverthe less, they were fun to build.
I remember Pyro models too, I couldn't afford Eaglewall.
So we've had the question below what was your thoughts on the 1st most accurate ship model, so what do you think is most INACCURATE model you ever had?
Don't get me wrong, I love Airfix and their range of 1/600 scale vessels (I think I built most of them) but my vote on the most inaccurately proportioned ship model ever was their BISMARCK and TIRPITZ. I'd be interested to hear how they got 'em so wrong.
Love you Airfix.
