Heller Strasbourg Battlecruiser, 1/400, L1030

Plastic Model Kit,   Box Condition: Sealed Mint


Still factory sealed. Rare. The Dunkerque-class Battlecruisers were the French response to the German Graf Spee-class and the fast and well-armed Italian ships at the time. If the 1900 to 1930 span of French shipbuilding could be defined as lacking a clear vision or plan, the Strasbourg and her sister decisively ended that period. The products of superior design and engineering, the two sisters would re-define fast capital ships as would their near-sisters Battleships Richelieu and Jean Bart after them. But world events would conspire against these beautiful ships and there visibility in naval history. The Strasbourg was begun in 1934 at St. Nazire, launched in 1936 and put into service in 1939. She never navigated in peacetime. Displacement was 26,500 ton and top speed was 30 knots. Main armament was (8) 330mm guns and (16) 130 mm dual purpose. The main and secondary guns were mounted in the first quadruple turrets. Both main 330 mm turrets faced forward so that all main guns could fire when the enemy was sighted or in pursuit. Her superior speed would allow her to escape anything that she could not out-gun. Like most ships of the day she featured the 'All-Or-Nothing' armor design or 'armored box'. The compact design and placement of the main and secondary armament allowed unusually high armor protection for a battlecruiser. Serious consideration was also given to underwater protection, and the ships had a unique and effective (as events would prove) anti-mine/torpedo system with a novel water-exclusive material. At Mers-El-Kebir, her sistership Dunkerque was pinned at the pier. In an unlucky set of events, a ship moored next to her was sunk along with it's load of depth-charges. Later, a torpedo set off the huge explosive cargo. The damage to Dunkerque was immense. Other ships would have sunk, but she did not. Strasbourg was the only capital ship to get underway during the disaster at Mers-El-Kebir. Her superior speed allowed her to escape while two other French Battleships were sunk. She fled to Toulon, where she was eventually joined by the hastily repaired Dunkerque. However, when the Germans threatened to seize the ships, the entire fleet including the two sisters was scuttled in the harbor. The Italians raised the Strasbourg and stripped her of her guns; but she was bombed and sunk by Allied aircraft. In 1945 she was raised again, but salvage was beyond hope. In 1955 she was sold for scrap.
