Flyhawk 1/700 Konigsberg 1940 (FH1125S)

This time we are going to talk about Flyhawk 1/700 Konigsberg 1940 (FH1125S). German cruiser in such scale might be a great choice for modelers who would like to keep their build in reasonable size. Nevertheless, we deal with Deluxe Edition here, so you can expect more items inside. Bonuses should include various metal add-ons which would improve detailing on your model. It might be tricky, but it would be completely worth it as you would see further in the article. Packaging is typical, so let's open it and take a closer look together.

We are going to start with the biggest parts in the set. Those are hull sections and deck panels. It is good to see them molded like this as such design should be easier to work with.

Yes, there is also a clear frame which carries aircraft parts. Kit features several types, and of course you don't have to use all at once.

As I mentioned in the beginning, this kit might be a good test of your skills. There is a crazy amount of small parts, so be ready to work with special tools.

It is good to see chimneys coming as single-piece parts. Just be sure to carefully separate them off the sprue.

Superstructures are also single-piece elements, what should speed up the assembly process.

Here you can see Deluxe Edition bonuses - PE fret and metal barrels. All these things will come handy for even more features on your project.

Decals come from Cartograph, so printing quality looks fine. Small envelope features lead weight which should be placed inside your ship.

Flyhawk also supplies special card with boxart. It might be a good addition to your work table. Assembly manuals are typical for this brand and you can check all pages in the video-review.

Today's kit should be already available. In my opinion it stays on the same level as the previous releases, so it is quite amazing kit to have. Nevertheless, this is definitely not the right choice for beginners, as they will struggle with tiny parts. Such project should be good if you have all the necessary tools and ready for some challenge. Yes, it might be a bit difficult, but final result should be absolutely worth it in my opinion.


  • Great molding quality
  • Amazing design
  • A lot of bonuses inside

  • Definitely not for beginners
