Gidday Mark, Your Bismarck is certainly shaping up very good. A question if I may? You mentioned in a post above E-Z-Line for rigging. I think I've heard of it before but know nothing about it. Is it like, sewing thread, or fly fishing line, modeling line or what? And is it a generic product in Manchester (not the city) stores, sports stores, hobby stores etc or does it have to be bought on-line? And would it be fine enough for 1/600. Oh alright, that's three questions. Many thanks. Regards, Jeff.

Hey Mate. It is a Synthetic Line that comes on a Spool. It stretches to 7 Times it's Length and comes in various Diameters. I get mine from local Traders at Hobby Shows. There are other Products put out by Infini and Uschi. I know they are stocked in some stores. IF you go to BNA Model's Website in Melbourne they stock Infini and Uschi. It comes in all Sizes so you should be able to find one to suit you there. Just go to there Website and type in Rigging into their Search Engine and it will come up. Hope that helps.....Cheers mark

Gidday Mike, thanks for that. Now that I know what I'm looking for I'll check out a couple of stores here also, plus a model show that's coming up soon. Thanks for getting back to me. Regards, Jeff.

Have started working on her main Aircraft Hanger. As supplied in the Kit it is actually for the Tirpitz. For an accurate Bismarck some Surgery and P/E is required. More to come soon.....Cheers mark

The etch and other aftermarket upgrades are certainly making a big difference to this old kit,  following with interest

Nicely done.

Love the surgery.

Can't beat a model that makes people wonder which kit manufacturer it is.

Personalised touches really make them stand out.
