Well boys.... After a long wait it makes me happy to initiate works in the conversion of the kit BismarK to his brother TirpitZ.
It was not an easy decision.
Great part of the fault belongs to our friend Julian who always to supported this madness.

This is a project to long time, so only it can only to say that all guests are to being a part of this.... " Operation Tirpitz ":|

This will be good to watch Daniel, and will sit nicely alongside your 1/200 Graf Spee...

Hi Daniel,

Like the sound of this, always had more interest in Tirpitz than Bismarck. Read Bishop's book really enjoyed it.

will be following with interest.

Thank you very much Bruce. I possess it.

Yes Simon Bishop's book its very good, I am waiting from last year the John Asmussen Tirpitz book but even not finished.. Especially I am attracted by many more the Tirpitz that his famous brother Bismarck dwells being that being hidden in the fiords of the north and without any clash it had to the whole fleet of the north in check. Really incredible!!

Yesterday I see .....

They say "Misery loves company". I think that's one reason I scan this website and various other hobby-related ones everyday. Looking for confirmation that there are others who are just as 'crazy' as, or even 'crazier' than I am. You know, the kind that put every last nut and bolt on a 1/72 scale tank, with full interior of course! The ones who super-detail an area of a model that will forever be unseen and then say, "Well, at least I'll know it's there."! Or, those who build a 1/200 scale Hornet, or Tirpitz, while working on various other outstanding projects at the same time. We are not alone! Al
