Does anyone know of a source for a large scale graphic of the Gneisenau's crest? All I can find on the Internet are relatively small ones, less than 400 pixels. Purchasing an existing sticker or other graphic is also an option. I would like to scan it and use it as part of my display for my model of the Gneisenau. Thanks for any leads!

I can offer this. A bit pixelated when blown up, but it's the best I've got.

Thank you Dave, very kind of you. Of course, if even higher resolution images exist, they would be most welcome as well.

Out of curiosity, is there any difference between the Trumpeter 1/350 1940 and 1941 kits? I looked through the instructions posted on-line and didn't catch any differences beyond the painting guides and even the 1941 version had a 1940 era paint scheme.

Thanks,
Matt

I think the larger horizontally placed cylinders contain cleaning equipment for the 28cm main guns. These are visible in other photos also which makes sense.

WAG....they may be tubes to hold spare 20mm barrels for the extra AA fitted for the Dash?

Has anyone any knowledge as to what are the vertical tubes or pieces as circled in red in the photo (well screenshot from Youtube) of Scharnhorst's Anton and Bruno Turrets?

They only seem to be there for Operation Cerberus, The Channel Dash in 1942. They are not visible in photos from Operation Berlin in 1941 nor in photos from late 1942 or 1943 when Scharnhorst worked up in the Baltic and transferred to Norway.

Could they be tubes for spare barrels for the extra 20mm Flakvierlings that were embarked for Operation Cerberus? It is hard to find any clearer photo of them than the screenshot I have shown.

Done!

Thanks, Steve! The title has been there for many years but I was afraid to mention it... I have been fighting the 'Marinefleiger' spelling for years but have given up trying to teach Americans the difference between 'ei' and 'ie' in German...

Exactly, I was thinking about the new Flyhawk Scharnhorst 1943. I am not a big fan of releasing the same model at different time periods. I want a Scharnhorst April 1940 (Flyhawk might release one) but I know I will by the 1943. And it would suck if the differences are to big.

The questions likely refers to the new Flyhawk 1/700 kit of the 1943 version - and if that kit can be built as the ship was in April 1940.

If the question of 1940 and 1943 differences pertains to models, the Dragon kits of these two versions of Scharnhorst 1/350, captures all the differences except the catapult on turret C was gone by April 1940.

Say April 1940 and December 1943.
