Battleship Admiral Graf Spee

The Ship The armoured warship Admiral Graf Spee went into service on the 6th of January 1936, as the new flagship of the German navy. On 13th December 1939, at the mouth of the River Plate, the Graf Spee ran into a British cruiser squadron. The Graf Spee was able to break out of the battle that followed to her own advantage, but had to make a run for the neutral harbour of Montevideo in order to repair the damage.

On the 17th of December, after makeshift repairs, Captain Langsdorff had to leave the harbour. He subsequently scuttled his own ship. Public attention was recently focussed on the wreck of the Admiral Graf Spee again, when it became known that Uruguayan contractors wished to raise a major part of the ship. The Model Construct your own Admiral Graf Spee battleship with this 1:720 scale model kit from Revell.

The model can be built as a full hull or waterline model and features: detailed decks and superstructure, two 280 mm triple gun turrets, lifeboats, one Arado seaplane, AA and MG mounts and two propellers. The battleship also comes with a display stand and decals.
