Hi All

Just new to the forums and Scratch building.

My first scratch build attempt is going to be a 1:100 scale model of the Bismarck, I have built over the years various scale models of warships from Tamiya, Revel, Academy ect so I am not new to model building, although the biggest scale on these were 1:350.

I know I face lots of challenges and headaches, time and patience but I am in no rush. I have quite a lot of resources at hand, pictures, articles and the following books, Anatomy of the ship - Bismarck and Kagero - The battleship Bismarck Super Drawings in 3D. What I am struggling to find is good scale plans, either in print format or preferably to scale digital plans. Any link I try for Nick Fox is no longer valid and I cant get anywhere with Hans Gally.

Can anyone provide valid links to obtain these plans or anyone with the digital versions be willing to send me a copy?

Also is there any other good resources on the Bismarck I should look into?

Cheers

Druid
