This image of this ship was borrowed from a site dealing in 1/1250 ships. I am interested in a three view of this ship.
It is no doubt some kind of Pocket or Panzer ship project. Perhaps by Zenker.
Any help in obtaining a three view or direction to a book in English or German which elaborates on the topic would be greatly appreciated.

Looks like a monitor. What about looking here?

A monitor, or one of the German projects which led eventually to the pocket battleships.
But I'm away from my library and can't look for a week or so.

Thanks for all of your responses.

I stand corrected then as I assumed it must be German. Swedish, English, or German I really like this vessel. it very much resembles am oceam going tank.

Now I don't claim to be any sort of expert on naval matters but I wouldn't describe a monitor as an ocean going tank as I thought they were for coastal bombardment. I wouldn't see them faring very well in an ocean battle.

Just being picky... ;)

Seems the Germans on Marine-Forum were able to I.D. it reasonably.

Thanks all for the help!
It seems it is definitely not German to which I am slightly chagrined. However what a neat ship nonetheless.

OK not quite Ocean-going, more like leisurely coastal cruising! :p

Then it's a British monitor?

You'll find it here ;)
