Re: Trumpeter "Barbarossa" Battlecruiser.
The name is made up for the kit. The model is based on the planned follow up battlecruisers Germany was planning for Plan Z. They were of course never built.
Hey! Thank you,
Has anyone else seen or heard of this warship?
My local store has Trumpeter's 350 scale Barbarossa Battlecruiser on the self.
I thought - am I missing something here? A new kit?
Just wondering if anyone has bought this, thoughts, opinions?
I thought the Kriegsmarine's only ships of this type in the 1930's & '40's were the Scharnhorst Class.
Reading Trumpeter's spill on the box the Barbarossa had the same type of main guns as Bismarck & Tirpitz, but a Battlecruiser. They were going to replace the Deutschland Class.
Barbarossa was never built though.
