Revell of Germany announces the January 2017 release of a 1/570 Scharnhorst Plastic Model Kit.
1/570 Scharnhorst Plastic Model Kit

Model No. - 80-5037
Skill level: 4
Scale: 1:570
Length: 406 mm
Parts: 122

MSRP - 18.99 US

(Unclear whether this is a re-boxing of the existing kit or retool at the time of this news story)

Scharnhorst was a beautiful ship with a good top speed and heavy main battery of nine eleven-inch guns. She also had the bad luck to be on the German side during WWII. Surface vessels contributed greatly to the German invasion of Norway, but shortly thereafter Allied radar and air superiority made venturing out on the surface deadly. Scharnhorst was cornered by British ships in the Battle of North Cape and sunk after heavy fighting. Kit features detailed deck, rotating turrets, 28 and 15cm guns, seaplane, display stand, and full decals.

I recognize this old girl from the instructions - this is definitely a rebox of the 1970s kit.

Thanks Tim! I was thinking that....especially after seeing the scanned instructions on the Revell site...LOL But you never know! I still get a chuckle from the odd scales! I don't have much OCD...but it drives me nuts looking at my stash with rounded numbers or 1/700 and 1/350...then there's the 1/534 carrier sticking out like a sore thumb!

Amazing the MSRP of $18.99 is about the same it was when I got mine for ten years ago. I built both this and Gneisenau. Good value for the money and lots of update bits out there.
