Made by Atlas Editions, these beauties are 1:350 scale -- the most popular of the larger ship scales.  Pre-assembled and painted, each includes a display stand with a metal plate denoting the boat and the year depicted and, perhaps best of all, each features a cutaway bow section that reveals interior details!

The Bismarck class was a pair of battleships built for Nazi Germany's Kriegsmarine shortly before the outbreak of World War II. The ships were the largest warships built for the Kriegsmarine. Bismarck was laid down in July 1936 and completed in September 1940, while her sister Tirpitz's keel was laid in October 1936 and work finished in February 1941. The two ships were broadly similar to the World War I-era Bayern class, in that they mounted a similar main battery.

Both ships had short service careers. Bismarck conducted only one operation, Operation Rheinübung, a sortie into the North Atlantic to raid supply convoys sent from North America to Great Britain. During the operation, she destroyed the British battlecruiser HMS Hoodand damaged the new battleship Prince of Wales in the Battle of the Denmark Strait.Bismarck was defeated and sunk in a final engagement after a three-day chase by theRoyal Navy. Disagreements over the cause of the sinking persist with chiefly British sources claiming responsibility for the sinking of the ship. Evidence reviewed by Robert Ballard andJames Cameron indicates that her loss was most likely due to scuttling as originally claimed by her surviving crew-members.
