Hello Bernd,

where did you find the information about the new Bugsschallanlage for the Bismarck too ???

I know about the Tirpitz, ... but never saw a photo of it on the Bismarck ...so from where you got this information ?

Talking about the color of the barrels on May 21st, 1941, ..that si dark grey and not red, ... they were just over peinting teh yellow under it.

This info I gave you for sure.

Bye, Antonio

Hi,

finally some progress. A few months ag I started to research Bismarck´s main battery. I am using green Ureol which give you the chance to get sharp corners and edges! At least when you sand like hell!! :heh: :smallsmile:

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.

Hi 109
thank you for your help. About Bismarck and Tirpitz's AJ books I have 5, but each of the details will be a bit different, I do not know which is good? Josef Kaiser books and Mr Gally related information I can not find. Bundesarchive is a very good source of photos! Now I just can't find any details of the bottom of the boat, not a bit of it, you can tell me where is your source?Bismarck or Tirpitz can be.
I'm the only thing missing is the bottom of all water inlet and all water outlet of the exact location and quantity!
I hope you can help me do my work.


Thank you very much

Hallo

Well you need some modeling books on Bismarck , AJ Press from Poland. Josef Kaiser books are nice, too. Plan from Mr Gally from Germany. Also check out the online archive from the Bundesarchive. They have a lot of pictures online available.
With this information you can build 20 years on your model

Bye.

Thank you for your reply! Because I am not on the side of the majority of the site, plus the lack of information, so my work has become very difficult. I now have a set of Trumpeter Bismarck 1:200 and PHONTOS27001F super modified, see your work after I feel I am not good enough, I hope to learn from you. I am also considering doing a 1:100, all copper construction, hope you can help! Can you tell me the name of the book? What other Bismarck or Tirpitz's data is available?




Thank you very much!

Hi mzlzr,

I don't have the drawings you mentioned above . You should buy that book. However that drawing seems to be of Tirpitz!!
As for details of Bismarck : there aren't drawings available that shows all details . You need to research all sources and draw your own conclusions!
In 1/2ooth scale most details are so small that you can neglect them.

Also my build report shows all areas in detail.

Okay? Bye

I only have a very low resolution hull details from the site, because I can't see clearly, so I hope to get your help! I am very much to get a clear hull detail to complete my 1:200 Bismarck model more perfectly. This is my email: 250645959@qq.com. thank you all!

Hello, 109. I am from China, I am sorry, I do not understand English, can only rely on the translation software and your dialogue. It's a shock to see your model! I am also preparing to do a 1:200 Bismarck, want to learn from you, do a little more, but I do not have a very detailed information on the information, I hope to get your help, you can share your drawings to me?
