• Accurate, scaled, and full colour drawings.Close-up look at detailed model work.

On 18 June 1935 a bilateral agreement between Great Britain and Germany, which set German naval strength at a ratio of 1/3 of the size of the Royal Navy was signed. Hence the Germans were allowed to maintain the fleet of the tonnage of 421,000 tons.

It enabled the construction of 5 warships, 2 -3 aircraft carriers, 5 heavy cruisers, 5 light cruisers and 28 destroyers. Soon after the agreement had been signed the construction of two battleships and two so-called"Washigton” heavy cruisers, provisionally named "G” and "H”. The cruiser "H”, later named Admiral Hipper was built in Blohm&Voss shipyard in Hamburg. The ship was laid down on 6 July 1935 and launched on 6 February 1937. On 29 April the ensign was raised.

This addition to the Super Drawings in 3D series provides intricate, full colour drawings of this impressive ship, meaning it is the perfect addition to any collection and a useful tool for all those who are keen to learn more about the ship.

REVIEWS

Another new set of super 3D ship images from Kagero, this time for the German Navy heavy cruiser Admiral Hipper. ... accompanied by a B2 size sheet of scale drawings of the ship, plus some specific detail elements which provides an extra double-sided reference that is invaluable for modellers.

The clarity of each rendering is what makes this series of books a must have for anyone interested in maritime history in general or these ships in particular. Very highly recommended.
