At rest at Narvik
Virtually all of the six Type 1936 destroyers were sent to Narvik, Norway, in 1940 to secure vital iron ore supplies for Germany. Five of the six remain there to this day, just significantly lower in the water than when they arrived. After initial success, sinking Norwegian coastal vessels and landing the invasion forces, German destroyers were low on fuel and ammunition and far from home. Bottled up by the British Navy, the German ships made a good fight of it but all were sunk. Kit features full or waterline hull, detailed guns, display stand, and detailed superstructure.
