OK making a space for a long term build (Yes another one) but with a difference a sort of WHIF or WTF if you prefer.

I,ll be using the Trumpeter 1/350 PETER STRASSER Aircraft carrier kit but going to bling it up with the INFINI detail upset for the Graf Zeppelin hence the title now Zeppelin was launched and used as target practice and evaluation by the Russians after the end of WW2

So this will just be my imagination going wild for some reason while doing a bit of research on this I found a build by Hyun Soo Kim based on the world of warships game and camouflage scheme bit like the dazzle scheme that Tirpitz wore at some point

So it will be a slow one and a learning one for me but if anyone wants to join in with some help or just entertainment please do so.

here we go with some box and bits shots the detail set is quite full  😱

Will be following with great interest and restraint. Have the Zeppelin in the stash and am looking at the aftermarket sets for a build, however, I have to do the Titanic first or the CIC,👩‍🦰, will have my head for exceeding the naval budget.😀

When is this hitting the bench mate :whistle:

Going to be making a start on this tomorrow I say starting but it might take me a while to study what needs to go where with the detail set there’s quite a big instruction sheet for it and a bit to remove first do not want to do the usual trick of building up parts only to find it should have been replaced. Learned my lesson with that method. :rage:

Well when I started on the Fletcher build everyone thought that i had gone stark raving mad when I pulled out the dremel but look who's doing it now at the next level and enjoying it I suspect  :coolio:

 

Stay Safe

Not so much stark raving mad, more like "WTF's he doing?" 😀 Gidday Beefy, this'll be good. And the beauty of a whif is that you can let your imagination run a little bit, or a lot. On day I'd planned on converting a Prinz Eugen kit into Weser (nee Seydlitz), so I'll be interested in how this turns out.

     Regards, Jeff.

Stop faffing about Beefy and get stuck in. With this 'WTF' build, anything goes..

Not quite anything Stuart I will not be building the fly saucer  👽

 

And so It has started couple of hours last night at the art class ?? or so we are now known instead of model club  :whistle: if the politicians can get away with it why not join them  :book: loopholes.

 

Hull halfs glued and some main parts dry fitted

and some brass work that will go with it

And a bit play with some other parts

Well, that bit of 'art' is rather big. Where are you going to dock it when it's built?

Stuart funny but the missus was asking that same question last night and she said I should get a display cabinet for the model room I have learned a long time ago not to argue so will be paying a visit to IKEA  soon 😉

Agree with Stuart - big old thing and lightening progress by my standards.

As to Art - 3D - Yes IMHO :clap2:

Rob the progress might slow up quite a bit when I start on all the little shiny stuff

 

Bit of a size comparison to other 1/350 scale stuff on the bench need to get my finger out I know Stuart so swift will be getting most of the attention this week to clear some space

The hanger and boat deck will need some clean up for some reason Trumpeter have all the ejector pin marks on the side you will see instead of the other face that will not be seen

 

spacer.png

 

The hull has what looks like ballast tanks that I think are also part of the armour belt looks like something from a submarine

Gidday Beefy, that's an interesting size comparison in the photo. That's one of the reason I like to work in one scale only, albeit a different scale from you. Regards, Jeff.

Beefy, you will enjoy making the PE AA guns in the infinity set. 🥴

 

Good progress and if you need anything 3D printed give me a shout.  I have some extra anchors if you need em.

 

Cheers

So, a 2fer, another GZ builder. Have at it, the Strasser always had huge potential as a helicopter attack ship too!
