Hello together
Since I'm taking part in the competition, I thought to myself, show my construction of my Bismarck model from the Trumpeter brand in the scale 1:200.
The Pontos Detail Up Set “Advanced” is used for optimal detailing of the model. Various Veteran Models sets and all sorts of other aftermarket accessories do the rest.
Not to mention a bunch of styrene profiles for scratch building and the famous leftovers box.
I’m trying to create a model that shows the period from April 1941 to about 80% historically correct.

I worked on the model for almost two and a half years and it was finished in October last year.
I ended up here with you through a friend and will enter some pictures of the construction here during the days.

This is the start

With the Pontos etched parts set, you have the best prerequisites for raising the level of detail.

Next came the wooden deck on the hull and the ID markings could be painted.
Note the double bar chains. Many ship models use regular link chains, which is incorrect.

The first superstructures received their Baltic camouflage scheme and could be glued to the deck.

The front superstructures got their fans.

Nice work on the detailing. This scale would suit my eyesight nicely but I've only got room for 1/700 scale models.

Many thanks Donald.
I also have to slowly see where I leave the huge pots.

The next floor has been improved with styrene profiles.

Next up was the bridge. Out of the box she is almost naked. Here you can really score with the Styrene profiles.

The lines were made with 0.2 mm lead wire.

Finally, the fire control units from veteran models, and I like the bridge.

The wobbly pots also got an update

Now the first sailors came on board. the guys are from northstar models

It goes further up. Here, too, the kit is upgraded with styrene.

Next, I’ll show you something I made myself. I made tarpaulins out of paper and diluted wood glue

These were used to protect the companionways from rain.

Next came the transom skylights. Again, the richness of detail of Pontos is fantastic.
The Waterbombs make with styren.

Next up is the funnel. This one also needs some upgrades.

Attachment:

Let’s move on to the final details on the hull. I always do this quite late to protect them from damage for as long as possible.

Then it goes far to the hangars and the dinghies.

Scratched the gangway to the hangar and it can be installed.

Let’s go to the rear deckhouse.

Attachment:
17df.jpg
17df.jpg [ 2.21 MiB | Viewed 324 times ]


First the base of the main mast was set and the traffic boats in their mounts.
As you can see, I have shown the hangar open. A small scene should arise here.

Attachment:
SAM_2406.JPG
SAM_2406.JPG [ 1.77 MiB | Viewed 324 times ]


Paper and wood glue are also used for the tarpaulins for the traffic boats.

Next we pimped the signal platform. Again with paper and styrene.

With this I imitate the covers of the signal flags.

Still pulled the ropes for the flags.

Then all come togehter.

This allows the deckhouse to be installed and the main mast to be continued.

Let’s get to the protagonist for the small scene in front of the hangar.

Attachment:

The team pushes the Arado out of the hanger on the rail system. The hydraulic jacks are adjusted again with a hammer and crowbar.

And off you go to the bridge nock.

It’s amazing how many parts Pontos makes that out of. You can hardly get any closer to the original

Attachment:
SAM_2553.JPG
SAM_2553.JPG [ 2.33 MiB | Viewed 320 times ]


When installing the bridge wing, I still had to make corrections because Pontos had forgotten something here. This sheet metal was used to close the created bridge wing.
And when it was extended, like here with me, it naturally prevented the sailors from falling off.

Attachment:
SAM_2583.JPG
SAM_2583.JPG [ 2.56 MiB | Viewed 320 times ]


Of course, the middle artillery should not be missing either.

Attachment:
SAM_2577.JPG
SAM_2577.JPG [ 2.54 MiB | Viewed 320 times ]


Let’s also come to the rigging.
First I built a device to run the longwave antennas parallel between the triangles.
This way you can get the same tension on both sides.

Attachment:
SAM_2668.JPG
SAM_2668.JPG [ 2.47 MiB | Viewed 320 times ]


And the first threads are already hanging. Also to the funnel.

Attachment:
SAM_2679.JPG
SAM_2679.JPG [ 2.31 MiB | Viewed 320 times ]


Now came a point that got on my nerves. Four cables each led from the two double-stranded long-wave antennas, which narrowed into one towards the mast.

Attachment:
SAM_2688.JPG
SAM_2688.JPG [ 1.9 MiB | Viewed 320 times ]


Now the rest of the rigging can follow.

The crane body is already finished and there are still endless components.

But that also went together. A lamp scratched and he can get on the deck. Fits perfectly in the mount on the tower.

Since I am building the ship as it
was equipped in April 1941, there are still dinghies and row yawls on deck.

Attachment:
pe3.JPG
pe3.JPG [ 2.6 MiB | Viewed 319 times ]


The last yawls in the davits have come on deck. A PE set of a destroyer in 1/350 had to be used for the rope drums.

That was it for the quick build report.
Now it only remains for me to wish you a lot of fun looking at the finished ship.

That's really well done! Over 100 crew on the upper decks! Wow!

Many Thanks.
Yes, I think you should distribute a lot of the guys otherwise it looks unrealistic. After all, the Bismarck had a crew of over 2000 men.

Incredible level of detail :thumbs_up_1: . You must have a patience of a saint to be able to cope with that kind of stuff. Truly amazing stuff!

Bismarck is one of my favourites (I did a 1:600 model back in 70s), but after a 40 year break, I need to practise a bit before I can tackle it again.
