PRINZ EUGEN
German heavy cruiser model

The Prinz Eugen was the third and last heavy cruiser commissioned by the Kriegsmarine.  She became famous on her first war mission in May 1941 with the Bismarck.  During this Atlantic sortie, the two German ships sunk the mighty Hood and damaged the Prince of Wales. 

The Prinz Eugen's finest hour came when her shells held back advancing Red Armies, allowing a mass German exodus from the Baltic. With this task, the Prinz Eugen performed its longest mission--from 20th August 1944 to 8th April 1945.

The design of the Prinz Eugen was ahead of its time.  The propulsion system consisting of three sets of four boilers and three three-stage geared turbines operated at 450C and 73 bar steam pressure.  The quality of the artillery and of the fire control systems has never been surpassed to date.  The German quality of this ship resulted in her survival of two atomic bombs tests in Bikini Atoll in July 1946. 

The Prinz later capsized on December 22, 1946 because of a leak when being towed to Kwajalein Atoll.

 



 

Like all of our warship models, this Prinz Eugen model has the following qualities:

- Plank-on-frame, hollow hull construction (very important), weighing less than 15 lbs  (A solid hull of this model would be over 50 lbs, requiring 2 people to handle and a fortified table to accommodate.)

- The hollow superstructure is comprised of many individual thin pieces of wood glued together, not several solid pieces of wood stacking on top one another.

- Windows are cutouts (not black decals), thanks to the hollow structures.

- Light rust appearance to portray a tough heavy cruiser, not a shiny toy.

- >95% of parts are wood and metal

    49" long x 16.5 tall x 6" wide       $4,900   S & H is $150
 

"FedEx came today and successfully delivered the 3 models. I setup Prinz Eugen today. You guys have outdone yourselves again; She is an excellent model! She somehow got small splashes of blue spilled on her hull, I'll send pictures, I'm sure it can be easily repaired here, I just want to be careful to not damage, what is otherwise and amazing model.

 I am so happy you put my success story on your website still! Our lawyer told us to remove our full names from online websites. Thank you so very much!! We will commission two new ships from you before Christmas... it just a hard decision to pick just 2, for I love them all, and never thought I could get such AMAZING custom models at such low prices.

Sincerely, Al

p.s. The Hood has been my favorite ship of all time since I was a child. It is an honor to get the first Hood of its class from you all."
