I like your work on this. Takes a lot of work to get this far. I had the kit once with the pe and wood deck, but in the end sold it. I just noticed that Trumpeter has released Scharnhorst. Very tempted. 🙂

Thank you Greg , didn't know about the scharnhorst , has the pe , come out yet . Would be interested too .

I haven't seen any at the moment, but it won't be long I'm sure. 

I'm also going crazy about Yorktown. The ship that gave it's life to save us down under. Talk about fighting ones self. 

I get these crazy passions that get hard to resist. 🤔

Yes it was sad it was lost after putting up such a fight. Still it is still down there on the bottom unlike the ones that survived the war. Same goes for Bismarck and Scharnhorst. 

I will be following your progress from now on. 

I built the 1/350 Tamiya Bismarck in the eighties and used it as a pattern for a 1/150 scratch built one which I got half built before I gave it away.
