1/400 DKM Prinz Eugen, Operation Sportpalast (Heller)

The model is the Heller 1/400 Prinz Eugen during Operation Sportpalast.

The model shows Prinz Eugen on February 21th, 1942 when together with the Admiral Scheer sailed from Germany to Norway executing Operation Sportpalast. This operation was more complex and assumed the 2 German ships to sail later with Tirpitz against allied convoy PQ 12, but Prinz Eugen got torpedoed on the stern that collapsed entirely close to Trondheim in Norway.
