Hi all,

Here is my build of the German heavy cruiser Blucher in 1940 as she appeared during the invasion of Norway.

This model is different from my other models since this is the first model where I extensively used PE, mainly railings on the hull and superstructure. I've used PE before, but mainly to experiment since I didn't use PE the last time I modelled during teenager years and have only recently come back.

I may add rigging later.

I hope some of you like it.

That's a great build of a great kit.
Do you brush/airbrush? What colors for the hull etc?

Good one. :thumbs_up_1: I think these models looks better with a waterline diorama. I´ve working with the Scharnhorst 1/700 Tamiya. I bought Liquitex acrylic medium gel for the sea.

A mix of both brush and airbrush.
