WW1 Imperial German Navy

Imperial Germany's High Seas fleet. Potent and well-commanded challengers to the Royal Navy. Thwarted by the global reach of the British empire and growing United States military power, making their final stand with the scuttling of the ships at Scapa Flow, preventing them from falling into the hands of foreign powers.
The Royal Navy returned to the Flow in time to beach Baden. She was re-floated and was used for trials. It was found that the armour was not of better quality and that the 15" guns were not as powerful as the British equivalent. Subdivision and pumping capacity were better than British designed ships and lessons learnt were applied in the design of Rodney & Nelson.

A 1/1250 scale metal model of the German battlecruiser Hindenburg, a Derfflinger class battlecruiser of the German navy in WW1. Hindenburg saw little action, having entered service after the battle of Jutland but she was interned in Scapa Flow and scuttled in 1919. Although she settled in shallow water that did not allow her to capsize and her decks were awash at low tide, she proved most difficult to salvage because she was top heavy and tried to capsize as she was refloated.  Eventually, after removing most of the superstructure, Cox succeeded in refloating her and she was towed upright to Rosyth for scrapping.

A 1/1250 scale model in metal of the last German battlecruiser design of WW1. Based on the Mackenson class but with 15" guns and the funnels trunked together, the intention was to counter the British "Admiral" class, of which HMS Hood was the only one completed. Although the design staff continued to tweak the design into 1918, there was no realistic possibility of the ships being built and no names were allocated (Ersatz Yorck meaning replacement for the armoured cruiser SMS Yorck).
