Navis Neptun 1/1250 Gorizia Italian Zara Class Heavy Cruiser 1531

Navis Neptun September 2015 release, quality 1/1250 die-cast metal model of an Italian Zara Class Heavy Cruiser,Gorizia from World War 2

Gorizia survived until she was taken over by the Germans after Italy left the war in 1943. In that year, her armour had the only opportunity to display its effectiveness, when the ship was hit by three bombs, launched by American bombers, but the main deck resisted them all and the ship continued to fire against the high-flying aircraft. Later she was able to reach La Spezia, but the damage to the mid-ship was heavy, with almost all the structures over the armor belt devastated and a 100 mm (3.9 in) turret thrown into the sea. Ironically, at beginning of 1941, a modest British attack, at night, over Naples hit sister ship Zara. There were only two 113 kg (250 lb) bombs, launched at low altitude, but they pierced the hull and almost sank the ship. Gorizia was sunk 26 June 1944 at her moorings in La Spezia, in yet another twist of fate by Italian manned torpedoes, after the Italians joined the Allies.

Navis Neptun 1/1250 Zara, an Italian Heavy Cruiser sunk off Cape Matapan 1532

The four heavy cruisers of the Fiume class were the best in the Italian fleet in WW2. Three of them had the misfortune to be overwhelmed by gunfire from HMS Warspite in the night action off Cape Matapan.


The model best represents Zara as operating in 1938, Fiume & Gorizia were similar while Pola was originally fitted as a flagship and had a bridge linked to the forward funnel (see NN1530).

Navis Neptun 1/1250 Bolzano an Italian Heavy Cruiser 1939 1534

Good looking model of the heavy cruiser that was a member of the Trento class but with enough alterations to almost appear a separate class. Armed with 8 x 8" main guns in four turrets, Bolzano was a powerful cruiser, serving many of the same missions as her sister ships. Hit three times by 6" rounds from the British cruiser HMS Neptune in the battle of Calabria, two deaths and minor damage below the waterline was sustained but quickly repaired. Another round hit "B" turret but the guns continued to fire undeterred while a third round struck the torpedo room, where the two fatalities took place. At the beginning of the battle of Spartivento, her Ro.43 flying boat was the first to spot the British fleet 20 miles off Algeria. On 25 August 1941, while returning from an abortive attempt to intercept minelayer HMS Manxman, used by the British on ressuply missions, Bolzano was damaged by a torpedo from the British submarine HMS Triumph near the Straits of Messina. With steering damaged, she was towed to Messina for repairs lasting three months, but hit again during an air raid.

In August 1942, when participation in the interception of the Pedestal convoy had been cancelled, she was again torpedoed while returning to base. Bolzano and the light cruiser Muzio Attendolo were both seriously damaged by torpedoes from the British submarine HMS Unbroken off the Aeolian Islands on 13 August. The damage required her magazines to be flooded and she was beached at the island of Panarea. After a month, she was salvaged and taken to Naples, then to La Spezia for repairs. At La Spezia in September the Italians surrendered and Bolzano was captured by the Germans but her damage made her unusable and subsequently she was sunk by human torpedoes in a combined Italian and British raid on 21 June 1944, being refloated and sold for scrap in 1947.

Navis Neptun 1/1250 Freccia, Italian fleet destroyer, 1932 1563

Only two ships (Freccia & Saetta) had clipper bows, the other two members of this class (Dardo & Strale) had straight stems. The class as a whole were dissapointing because they could not maintain their trials speed, were poor sea boats and they spent WW2 as convoy escorts.
