On 18 June 1935 a bilateral agreement between Great Britain and Germany, which set German naval strength at a ratio of 1/3 of the size of the Royal Navy was signed. Hence the Germans were allowed to maintain the fleet of the tonnage of 421,000 tons. It enabled the construction of 5 warships, 2 -3 aircraft carriers, 5 heavy cruisers, 5 light cruisers and 28 destroyers. Soon after the agreement had been signed the construction of two battleships and two so-called "Washigton" heavy cruisers, provisionally named "G" and "H". The cruiser "H", later named Admiral Hipper was built in Blohm&Voss shipyard in Hamburg. The ship was laid down on 6 July 1935 and launched on 6 February 1937. On 29 April the ensign was raised. This addition to the Super Drawings in 3D series provides intricate, full color drawings of this impressive ship, meaning it is the perfect addition to any collection and a useful tool for all those who are keen to learn more about the ship.


"Another new set of super 3D ship images from Kagero, this time for the German Navy heavy cruiser Admiral Hipper... the attraction from any ship modellers, are the detailed, full colour 3D images of every detail of the vessel that you might want. Even small things like where the rails were fitted, the main and secondary armament, along with range-finders, radar arrays and even the binocular mountings on the look out stations. Around the command tower and bridge, even details like the scuttles to cover the porthole glass is included, and floats for mine sweeping stowed round the turret barbettes. Stowage of the ships boats, the Arado aircraft mounted on its' catapult, even the graceful shape of the so-called 'Atlantic bow' are all beautifully rendered."
