The Tirpitz was the second largest battleship ever built in Europe, although perhaps it didn’t achieve the same fame as its sister ship, the Bismarck. Named after Admiral Alfred von Tirpitz, this battleship never actually fired its guns against an enemy vessel. The Tirpitz and Scharnhorst bombarded Allied defenders on the island of Spitsbergen, Norway as a battalion of German troops landed in a temporary occupation. After this operation the battleship moved south, where it lurked in German bases. At this time the Tirpitz was dubbed the ‘Lonely Queen of the North’ until it was sunk by Tallboy bombs dropped from Lancaster bombers on November 12, 1944.

Trumpeter often recommends using Tamiya X and XF paints – click here to purchase!
