KMS Munich in 1/72 scale

Post  Haratio Fales on Thu May 03, 2012 11:46 pm

Hello to everyone, My name is Haratio, I am currently Building a Replica of a Ship that was Laid down in 1938 and never completed. It was going to be the first Z plan light cruiser for the Kreigsmarine of which 4 were to be built and an aditional 4 of a slightly modified class were planed to follow.

The first thing I did was to gather as much information about the Ship I was planing to build as posible. including weapons systems that were planned for it. and line drawings and blueprints. I contacted an old freind in germany that had an uncle whom worked for th ship yard in Keil and obtained the basic plans for the ship.

A slightly to large gun turret with an old ME 109 that my 7 year old crash landed a few times, on top of a mid section of a Japanese light cruiser RC hull section. fo scale referance.
