The Koenig-class battleships were famous vessels of the Kaiser German Navy during WWI. There were four sisterships: Koenig, Grosser Kurfuerst, Markgraf, and Konprinz, all commissioned in 1914-1915. These battleships took part in all battles against the British Grand Fleet. In the Battle of Jutland (May 31, 1916) they formed the Third Squadron of the German Fleet and damaged many British ships. In 1917 they participated in campaigns against the Russian Navy in Moonsund. After the armistice was signed the Koenig-class battleships were interned at Scapa Flow, where crews sank them on June 21, 1919.
ICM's big 1/350 kit of the WWI German Koenig-class battleship Grosser Kurfuerst will measure 50.3cm long when assembled.
