another thing I will do on mine is replace the main & gun decks with 1mm styrene plastic like what I'm doing on my OBB kitbash using Revell's 1/429 scale USS Arizona.

I just bought scale 1/535:
5"/38 cal. Mk.28 and Mk.37 Directors, "Angle-back" from Model Monkey 3D-printing...also bought the 1/400 Bismarck main guns with blast bag...have that one ...and Tirpitz in waiting for the make.
that way I can see difference and decide if I go for more 3D printed stuff...

Shipped today! Thank you!

this is a normal question ...as I lost during the long time since this ship was made my 2 plane's....any chance those will be made by you?...I'm sure ...I'm not the only one having lost those scale 1/535 seaplanes....been breacking my head over how I'm gonna make those.
I have some flooters left over from my scale 1/400 Heller Scheer kit...those planes are bigger scale...but they have 2 main flooters ...and not 1 big + 2 thinny "keep wings out of the water" so size is pretty ok...but still...got to make the rest...
and after searching on the internet...haven't found anything that scale....knowing that kit is around and on the market for +60 years and still getting produced...might be a good thing

I've been looking at their webside...they have great stuff....but...first they are expencive...and what kills is their shipping policy...29.90 ...no matter what you buy..
was gonna buy some stuff...cancelled when seeing total cost...when total cost gets above 54 US...I also have to ad import taxes and administration fee...
the import taxes is on price + shipping
its or buy big or nothing...very sad but no thanks

the 1st thing I would have down was remove all the paint off the hull before gluing any plastic to the hull as you don't have to worry about removing paint before gluing a piece of plastic to the hull. 2nd thing I would cut off the lower part of the bow off to get rid off that rounded bow foot. did that on my Tennessee & Colorado classes in my Arizona kitbash thread. 3rd thing I would have done was bevelled the rounded corners where the hull bottom meets the sides then glue a strip of plastic onto that bevel, let cure, cut & sand that new piece of plastic so you end up with a sharp square corner to buildup the plastic like you are doing to the rest of the hull bottom. what plans are you using & what time period?

the links will give you side profiles so you can get the hull height right so you don't do again the mistake you did on your Burleigh model. what planes do you want, Kingfishers or Seamews?
