Hi everyone!
I've decided that I will try to scratch build one of these notorious vessels. I already have the ship plans from Koop/Schmolke. I have found thus far:
1. 12-15 full hull photos online
2. Some not very useful pictures taken of Brummer encrusted with years of marine growth
3. One upper-deck photo used in a 1969 copy of Warship International magazine donated by Kapitan P. Schmalenbach of the Bremse. Unfortunately all searches for Schmalenbach take me to an officer of Bismarck.

There are no models larger than 1/1250 that I have found online.

Does anyone else have any useful detail photos? Feel free to contact me via PM.

Thank you for reading.

There is a 1/700 kit of the class by HP Models available:

There is a plan of the class drawn by Klaus-Peter Schmolke (Planmappe: Kleine Kreuzer 1903-1918: BRUMMER-/BREMSE-Klasse), but I do not have it and therefore I do not know, if it is useful.

There is a Russian article in Morskaja Kampanija N°2 2010 about the class containing many photos and drawings.

Thank you for the links. I wonder why I can't find these myself? I've googled page after page after page, day after day and gotten zilch. Is it a question of search engines, I wonder?

I purchased the Schmolke drawings months ago. They are the foundation of my scratch building plans. I'll search for the Russian Publication in a bit.

Still...it irks me that my search engine seems blind.
