This is the Tamiya 1/700 scale Scharnhorst with a Hobby boss U-Boat. This commission of the Scharnhorst kit was stress free  as the Tamiya kit even though its old, is still sharp and captures the lines of this elegant ship quite nicely so it is only the case of adding a bit of extra detail mainly on the bulkheads of the ships superstructure to make it visually more interesting. The  small U-Boat alongside the ship enhances the sense of the size difference between those two vessels in real life.
