    Bismarck and Tirpitz 1:350

    Thanks. By coincidence, or the power of the Ebay cookie, I found the Tirpitz Platinum kit for £93 in a Sunday sale incl free postage. I also tagged on KGV (Tamiya) and Bismarck (Revell). Recommendations on a good PE bender welcomed. Cheers

    Bismarck and Tirpitz 1:350

    Fabulous build Bernd. Since my father was on Victorious, I had been looking at buying a 1:350 of these two ships, but seeing your work and the big difference the additional parts make, has challenged me, not so much in the build but the cost. I would have thought for the price of the base Revell kit, at least the PE parts would be included I am also wondering if the Tamiya versions would be better value One question - what tool do you use for the PE bending? Looking forward to more pictures of your build Paul
  3. Thanks Ian, I have a watch for one of those Madsens out there so one will pop up one day... I read through your trials and tribulations; its good to have a challenge Good to hear the dust (sand) is settling; I worked in UAE for a short while - you definitely need something to keep one occupied out there... Cheers
  4. Hello Ian, Did you finish this model as I am just about to commence that kit and would be interested to see what it looked like and also what guns did you use eg kit guns or PE guns The box states it was fitted with 1x Maxim, 1x Lewis and 1x Madsen and I am wondering what aftermarket gouns could be availlable, Thanks for any info Regards Paul
  5. I heard about a Russian armoured loco last night on an OTB podcast, and one thing led to another and I found this on Scalemates - it would make for a great dio parked up on a DRG layout in the sidings ie just after the war. The scale sits halfway between HO 1:187 and OO 1:76 so ironically would look even more massive on an HO layout against the other locos On my list now...and determined to make it 'shuntable'
  6. Hi I just found this kit in a bookshop last weekend but the instructions were missing. I could muddle through but is there a pdf anywhere of these as that would really help Dim - What colour Tamiya paint did you use overall? And I love your treatment of the rust / joints on the floats - superb
