After two and a half years (off and on) of work, this one crossed the finish line this past weekend. Revell 1/350 Tirpitz, circa July 1942, with the Eduard “Big Ed” PE set, Model Monkey's 3D printed main/secondary battery turrets and searchlights. The AA guns (all of them) are by Veteran Models, brass mast upgrade set (made for Bismarck) from Never Set Models. Mostly painted with Colourcoats paints. Rigging by Infini and Uschi. These are cell phone pics, I'll submit proper photos to the gallery in the near future.

I had an opportunity to view this build yesterday. One of Martin's best. A very crisp build. Great camo.

Congratulations, she looks very clean and complete! Even base is great looking! That camo cannot have been easy to add!

Beautiful work, Martin. You've really been knocking it out of the park recently. :thumbs_up_1: Can't wait to see what's next.
