Welcome aboard. Your build looks very good so far. I find it amazing what people can do with metal. I am having enough issues just using plastic sheet.

Keep us posted on the progess.

Hi,

thanks for the kind comments. I solely use an airbrush (Iwata) for painting. Only some details are brush painted (high quality brushes only, enamel paints).

I use for airbrushing high quality paints from Model Railroad suppliers as they also do not want to obsure fine detail with unsuitable lacquers.

Bye,

Bernd.

I have seen and another topic with another build of yours.. Will you build the entire ship or just some parts???

Very impressive work and detail.. What do you use to glue the metal parts with the styrene ones? :thumbs_up_1: :thumbs_up_1: :wave_1:

Just found it... There are two topics with your Bismarck build and I was confused... Very nice work... :thumbs_up_1: :thumbs_up_1: Why don 't you merge them into one since it is the same build??

Take care,

Bernd.

Nice to see that you are building the whole ship. Cant wait to see some turret work. :wave_1: :wave_1: :thumbs_up_1:

If the rest of the ship is to the standard of what has been produced so far then this model is going to be truly impressive. :thumbs_up_1: :thumbs_up_1: :thumbs_up_1:

109 this is seriously GOOD work! As a matter of interest how long does it take you to construct such an accurate piece of work? I take it you are familiar with Joseph Kaisers outstanding work on his Bismarck? :thumbs_up_1: :thumbs_up_1: :thumbs_up_1: :thumbs_up_1:

Hi Dave,

I don´t know the total number of working hours but I spent 9h on the detailing of the two side doors... so, it is time consuming! :roll:

Do you know the working hours of your models, please?

Bye!
