The collection of World War II Warships from DeAgostini at 1/1250 scale come already assembled and painted. There is no assembly or painting needed. They are constructed of diecast metal and plastic parts. They have no moving parts. Each ship is attached to a removable display stand and each display stand has a metal nameplate. The base of the stand measures 4.75" by 1.75".
These models are made for display and are not really toys. They are very fragile and will not last long if played with. The recommended age is 14 years and older.
Prinz Eugen was an Admiral Hipper-class heavy cruiser, the third of a class of five vessels. She served with Nazi Germany's Kriegsmarine during World War II. The ship was laid down in April 1936, launched in August 1938, and entered service after the outbreak of war, in August 1940. She was named after Prince Eugene of Savoy, an 18th-century general in the service of Austria. She was armed with a main battery of eight 20.3 cm (8 in) guns and, although nominally under the 10,000-long-ton (10,160 t) limit set by the Anglo-German Naval Agreement, actually displaced over 16,000 long tons.
