About This Replica

This is the German Cruiser Prinz Eugen. Sitting at a MASSIVE part count of 17,136 parts, or roughly considering the assembled file to this corrupted on me (which funnily enough is why the screenshots feel so awkward). She to date is my largest craft ever made in terms of pure part count, and the most detailed. She has so many little weird details that I literally cannot show them all. Though her AA guns are missing due to part count.

Happy Birthday, Eugen!

Admiral Hipper Class

The class was to replace the older vessels of the late Kaiserliche Marine, as per the Treaty of Versailles. Each of this class was to weigh at 10,000 tons, which slotted for 5 vessels, though in actuality it ranged from 15-19 000 tons each.

The vessels had eight 20.3cm SK C/34 cannons in twin turrets, with an assortment of AA guns, although earlier in their lives the AA was not the greatest. All of the completed (3) had 4 triple launchers that could reload exactly once.

Some History

Prinz Eugen was launched on August 22nd, 1938, and commissioned on August 1st, 1940.

Her first operation outside of training was Operation Rheinübung, where she was escorted by German Z type destroyers until she reached the battleship Bismarck, where they decided to dash through the Denmark Strait. The ships sailed until they met some heavy cruisers and eventually met the battleships Prince of Wales and Hood, where the British ships mistook Prinz Eugen for Bismarck, biding time for Bismarck to fire upon (and destroy) Hood, though against the commanding officer’s orders.

Her next operation was the Channel Dash. She and the battleships Scharnhorst and Gneisenau, with escorts rushed through the English Channel to north Germany, where Eugen was eventually torpedoed (though not during the Dash) and damaged heavily. After this, she was mainly used as a training vessel until the midwar where she was used as a gunnery platform.

She eventually surrendered to the British, and was then given to the USA as a war prize, and was redesignated to USS Prinz Eugen (IX-300), and was used in Operation Crossroads, where she was nuked twice. She eventually capisized and she still sits in Kwajelein Atoll to this very day, rusting away.
