Absolutely stunning Jim - you have outdone yourself!

Very coincidental timing for me - have just finished reading Fritz-Otto Busch's book "The Sinking of the Scharnhorst."

Thanks Tim, a few wee tweeks tomorrow, funnel tops and raise the right horizon. I'm in two minds whether to make it further on in the battle. I read abit 'Sharnhorst was on our Stbd beam as the destroyers commenced their torpedo run' might just do another pic from the Destroyers side.

I did this one a while back
HNoMS Stord Going in to within 400 yards of the SHARNHORST to fire her torpedoes. Stord was the ex HMS Success and later purchased outright by Norway.

Great stuff Jim, I believe the destroyers actually divided their forces and came at Scharnhorst from both sides, the two to stbd got quite knocked about but Scorpion and Stord in the shadow were not seen until very close, Scharnhorst turned violently away but still caught one torpedo but this took her closer to the others who managed to land 3 (I think). For a detailed DCT-eye view I cannot recommend Anthony Ditchman's book "A home on the Rollin Main" too much, he was Scorpion's GCO and sat in her director close enough to watch his 4.7 shells strike in a shooting range grouping, and even see the pom-pom shells hitting home, not even a window between him and Scharnhorst.
