You are bidding on a FANTASTIC and VERY RARE example of a WW2 German Kriegsmarine 1:100 Construction Blueprint!  Covering the Bismarck’s Main Deck, this is a HAND-DRAWN period tracing from the original.


Bismarck was the first of two Bismarck-class battleships built for Nazi Germany’s Kriegsmarine. Named after Chancellor Otto von Bismarck, the ship was laid down at the Blohm & Voss shipyard in Hamburg in July 1936 and launched in February 1939. Work was completed in August 1940, when she was commissioned into the German fleet. Bismarck and her sister ship Tirpitz were the largest battleships ever built by Germany, and two of the largest built by any European power.


Made of a very lightweight drafting paper, this is a SUPERB representation of one of the most iconic classes of warships of World War 2.  Hand-drawn in 1:100-scale, it depicts the deck layout, armament, superstructure, and railing layout of the Bismarck.  A period tracing from the original builder’s plan, it is drawn in black ink, and bears the title, “Schlachtschiff Tirpitz – Bismarck”, and features both top-down and starboard profile depictions of the ship as completed, with every detail clearly depicted, including boats and observation aircraft, armament, gun turret traverse and elevation angles, superstructure, masts, anchors, and especially the layout of the railing.  Above the main drawings are several additional detail diagrams showing an end-on section view of the ship, demonstrating the bracing and construction of the railings at various points along the main deck. The drawing is unsigned and undated, but GUARANTEED as being an original  period item (probably a working design drawing).  Some slight wear, marks, and fold to the age, but nothing that detracts.  A MASSIVE 36″ x 100″ size, it would make a VERY RARE addition to any collection, or display!

——————- TERMS OF SALE —————–

Most of my items are vintage, and as such are AS-IS, so you must therefore expect a degree of wear due to age and/or usage.

All sales are final, so please make sure your questions are answered to your satisfaction before you purchase.


——————- ABOUT ME —————–

Although my passion is the Me109, I do offer many other German Aircraft (Fw190, Me262, etc.), as well as USAF and Japanese items. Occasionally I do offer many non-vintage items such as prints and art relating to the time period. As a private collector myself, I am constantly on the lookout for historical memorabilia, authentic photographs, artwork or anything unique relating to military aircraft.
