I just saw this looking at an upcoming release for an airplane model.

However, I can't read Chinese. So, I used Google Translate.
For the name it came up: "German Empire Navy Cypriot Battle Cruiser"



It sure looks like Seydlitz to me.

Here is the link:

Hi Gaz -

nice find for sure, and nice work with your google translate - however - the link you provided, upper right corner has a setting 'english', than you'll find the July/August 2017 updates, and you'll see SMS Seydlitz clearly written down

That could be a nice one!!

Cheers,
Jan

Looks Great,

If it is up to the standard of the Danton & Dunkerque it will be very nice indeed.

Cheers

This is great for me because she is my favorite warship all-time.

I tried to scratch-build one back in the eighties using some weak line drawings from a Jane's book. There were no hull contour drawings and I used pictures from the Doolittle bombing experiments to get me part-way there. At 3-feet long I had a lot of detail to find. In the end, I gave up due to a lack of resources.

I've shied away from Combrig because too much resin horrifies me. And 1/700 offerings are way too small for me to countenance.

So, this is nothing short of a godsend for me. I reckon this will be the first time ever that I pre-order a model.

Great to see another interesting release from Hobby Boss!

They really are coming out with some interesting subjects: Danton/Dunkerque, Lord Nelson/Agamemnon and now Seydlitz.

Good find Gazza!
