I know your Zona conversion ,is nice ,but this is a different animal , I did further sanding and is getting better ,but need to be very careful.
At least I got sloped sides ,just compare with the original

Hello Miguel,

it's nice to see your job you really got the shape of the stem! Do you have a thread in "Works in Progress"? I would like to read more about the development of your project.

I'm doing the same conversion using the same kit. As for the discussion above the foredeck was surely widened to enable the much more pronounced flare. The best drawings for Scheer are from Hans Gally, unfortately they are expensive and very cumbersome to get because he has no website you can only order on phone and he does not send the drawings outside Germany...but they are really exceellent. If you're interested in it you can check my build here:

viewtopic.php?f=59&t=167098&p=746106#p746106

Best regards, Greg

Greg ,your conversion is truly awesome :worship_1: ,mine is a much simpler one ,I will try to make the best approach to the Atlantic bow ,but certainly nothing like yours ,but thanks for sharing your build .it will be a fundamental reference on mine ,the problem I don't have a "Works in progress" of the Scheer because I have 4 ongoing projects and only WIP with the HMS Orion , the Bow problem was a step stone ,that is the reason I just worked the part,now got a better shape

I don't know if this is helpful, but I corrected Trumpeter's Tribal class (both 1/350 and 1/700) forward sheer line and flare. The sheer line in this discussion is irrelevant, but the flare is. As I corrected the flare upwards and outwards the deck naturally widened accordingly.

Im looking for some drawings of how the Graf Spee dummy turret looked like with those wooden barrels.

I have seen one very good upclose pic of the barrels, but not sure what shape was of the canvas that covered the half of the fwd bridge section to create the "turret" silhouette.

Does anyone have any info on this or tips?

Should it be just "canvas" over the instruments, or should I give it a distinct shape?

do you have info regarding the sixth panzerschiff? Was it even draw by the german? (I couldn't find drawing of him on the internet).

Also what refit were historically considered for the graf spee if she returned from her trip ? (the atlantic bow? a new tower like the Scheer?)

is it possible to do a "conception admiral scheer" from the italeri kit?

I wonder why trumpeter didn't put the deutschland and the scheer on the market yet.

There was never a ship built like a "conception admiral scheer" or a sixth Panzerschiff. You can do what you want.
