Armed: DKM Tirpitz

The amount of time and energy involved in constructing and outfitting one of these behemoths, warrants special recognition.  The DKM Tirpitz is the first 1/72 Battleship fully outfitted and 100% ready for combat.  At over 11 feet long and armed with 8 rotating 1/4″ guns, the Tirpitz is the most heavily armed ship anyone in the club has produced to date.  Originally built by Deryk Haole in 1999 and detailed by a former member.

The above pictures are just a small sampling of the detail that is on this ship.  Next we will provide photos of the internal systems, including the gun that are in the ship.
