Scharnhorst ready for battle

January 26, 2012

So, my 1-144 scale battleship is ready for action. She is the German ‘Pocket’ battleship Scharnhorst. It carries 3 turrets with three barrels each containing 7/32 inch bearings. Generally, she can hold about 150 bearings per turret. I am continuously working on it, but recently I worked my butt off to get it ready for battle in Newcastle.

Here she is from another angle, on the bench at home after I gave it a paint job.
