Description

This is an injection-plastic ship model kit.

From the manufacturer:

The battleship Konig belonged to the number of the most illustrious ships of the Kaiser's German Navy of the WWI period.  "Konig" (the King) was laid down at the Imperial Shipyard in Wilhelmshaven on Oct. 3, 1911, launched March 1, 1913 and commissioned Aug. 9, 1914.

Battleships of the Konig type were mighty vessels, excellently geared for North Sea conditions.  The four sister ships formed the 3rd Squadron of the Open Sea Navy (Hochseeflotte). The Konig became the flagship of Rear Admiral Benke.  The 3rd Squadron of Battleships took part in all battle operations of the Open Sea Navy after WWI started.  One of the sorties caused the Battle of Jutland, May 31-June 1, 1916, the greatest and fiercest sea battle of WWI.  British battleships Warspite, Valiant and Malaya were severely damaged.

Konig took part in the Moonsund operation in the Baltic Sea against the Russian Navy in September and October of 1917. After the armistice was signed, the German Navy was interned by alliances at Scapa-Flow, where almost all vessels, including all 4 Konig sister ships, were scuttled by their crews on June 21, 1919. 

Kit will be 25.2cm long when assembled; includes 214 parts. Decals included.
