New for 2011! This unmodernised early cruiser as operating in 1928 in the Reichsmarine.
A fine model of the Kriegsmarine ship that was originally classed as a pocket battleship.Following torpedo damage during Norway operations, the pocket battleship was re-built, re-named and re-classified as a heavy cruiser. Modelled here in final 1944 mode at which time the ship was serving in the Baltic.
Other navies would have classed these as Escorts or Escort Destroyers but these were seen by the Germans as updated versions of WW1 torpedo boats and used them accordingly.

A 1/1250 metal waterline model of U505, the early type IXC submarine that was attacked and captured northwest of Dakar, ending up in a museum in Chicago after the war..
