Bismarck as seen on the 21 of May of 1941 when at the beginning of operation Rheinübung, Bismarck and Prinz Eugen stopped briefly in Grimstadfjord, southwest of Bergen in Norway. The baltic camouflage on the superstructure was no longer there but it is still visible on the hull with the sailor starting to paint it over.

WOW! The amount of detail you put on her is amazing. You would swear it was a 1/350 build. Fantastic work :thumbs_up_1:

Agree with above. An amazing performance. I am amazed that you could build such a fine and detailed 1/700 model. It is a beauty!

Stunning. I know my builds don't look half as good at twice the distance.

Your work really stands up in those close-up shots. Bravo!

Great build. Could easily pass for 1/350 with all those details.

Fortunately, your photography does an excellent job of displaying the terrific results. It would be a shame to have done this well and have it not appear so in the pictures. If it looks this good in "brutal close ups" it must be dazzling in person.
Congratulations on this fine achievement. :nod_1:
