1:50 Bismarck would weigh about 800 lbs?

You go canoeing in that!

Hello,
My Name is Patrick. I'm a new member.
I'm french, so sorry for my approximate English.
First of all, congratulations on your accomplishment... just incredible.

May be you can help me…
I also build the Bismarck in 1/100 and I would like to represent the weld lines on the hull... I saw some pictures on page 17 and 19 but some details are not clearly visible...
for example, I can't determine the width of the shielding plates on the side of the hull.
Another example, the weld line at the bottom of the hull passes below or above the side keel (Schlingerkiel)
many other welds that are actually invisible on the pictures...
Do you have the possibility to send me more pictures or direct me to the site where you found the pictures of the welds?
Thank you in advance for your help and I hope to see you soon.
Patrick

Bonjour Patrick,

sorry for the late answer. The Book "The Battleship Bismarck (Anatomy of The Ship)" contains infos on the weldlines and hull plating. As always just because information is published in a book doesn´t make it correct per se.

Hope your Bismarck is making progress. Please show some pictures of it. :wave_1:

Hi,

I am switching from 1/100 to 1/50 scale ... I don´t know if I will build the complete ship but I will start with the Vormars.

109 this is certainly one of the most detail orientated models I have come across. I remember a model maker by the name of Jack Bidgood starting a 1:48 scale model of the frigate HMS Leander back in 1971. Each year he would bring various parts to the Model Engineering Exhibition in London to show progress. Every item imaginable that was on the full size ship was included on his. It was a work of pure dedicated genius. The years rolled by and eventually in 2003 he presented the completed model at the Model Engineering Exhibition gaining a plethora of awards including the highest score achieving the coverted Gold Medal . Sadly he passed away in 2006 only ever building one such model. But what a model!!.

Just found this but thank you for the kind comments about my grandfather (Jack Bidgood), but he passed away in 2010.


Are there any photographs of this model somewhere to be seen, would be very nice to see the model !

Thanks , but I buy my books - I know that's old fashioned but I expect to be paid for my work, too.

Again , there aren't drawings with all details. You have to do some research of your own . And your results will be different from mine.
