The Großer Kurfürst Diorama

A lonely German battleship sails the seas, seeking enemy cargo ships and worthy opponents! The largest and most powerfull ship of the Kriegsmarine is out for prey! 90,000 tonnes of steel, massive guns and bloodlust. A mercyless foe to encounter, thats's for sure...

The H class was a series of battleship designs for Nazi Germany's Kriegsmarine, which were intended to fulfill the requirements of Plan Z in the late 1930s and early 1940s. The first variation, "H-39," called for six ships to be built, essentially as enlarged Bismarck-class battleships with 40.6 cm (16.0 in) guns. The "H-41" design improved the "H-39" ship with still larger main guns, with eight 42 cm (16.5 in) weapons. Two subsequent plans, "H-42" and "H-43", increased the main battery yet again, with 48 cm (19 in) pieces, and the enormous "H-44" design ultimately resulted with 50.8 cm (20.0 in) guns. The ships ranged in size from the "H-39", which was 277.8 m (911 ft 5 in) long on a displacement of 56,444 t (55,553 long tons), to the "H-44", at 345 m (1,131 ft 11 in) on a displacement of 131,000 t (129,000 long tons). Most of the designs had a proposed top speed in excess of 30 knots (56 km/h).

Due to the outbreak of World War II in September 1939, none of the ships were ever completed; only the first two of the "H-39" ships were laid down. What work that had been accomplished was halted; the assembled steel remained on the slipway until November 1941, when the Oberkommando der Marine ordered it be sent for scrap and used for other purposes. Contracts for the other four "H-39" type ships had been awarded, but no work was begun on any of them before they were canceled. None of the subsequent designs progressed further than planning stages. (from wikipedia)

Size: 310 L 39 W 69 H
Armament: 4x3 420mm main battery, 10x2 128mm and 4x2 150mm secondary armament
German engineering!

Most of the details were based on the World of Warships model of this ship. It is not a completely accurate H-42, as that would have 480mm guns. In this case, the designation is based on the size of the ship, which would be same as the real H-42.

Built in: 1.10.2

Scale: 1:1

Interior: no

World download: yes

Special thanks to Sixshot for the render!

This project is for the Watercraft contest, the usual schematic file will be availabe after the contest! I have to say, having a due date can really push a person, but I also almost bit off more than I could chew....
Since I only have my weak laptop now, no images with shaders are made and even the shadows ar not set to fancy... oh welll!

You are free to download my builds, but if used on a public server, please note that it is not your build :-)
