FineScale Modeler reviews the 1/700 scale plastic model ship kit

ICM has created a finely molded 1/700 scale model of the SMS König, launched in 1913 and depicted as armed in 1918. Having been part of the Imperial Grand Fleet, 3rd Battle Squadron at Jutland in 1916, the ship proved robust as it sustained 10 major shell hits yet managed to sail safely back to port. Not until the Imperial Grand Fleet’s internment at Scapa Flow did the Royal Navy find its Achilles heel. (Major warships of the Imperial Grand Fleet were found to be built without condensers and required water tankers to maintain steam.) Scuttled by its caretaker crew on June 21, 1919, and partially salvaged in 1962, König remains a dive destination to this day at Scapa Flow.
