Thanks for you comments Tim much appreciated. The Wood Deck isn't peeling up. That is part of the Ramp System leading up to the Catapault.....Cheers mark



LOL! Glad to hear it! Your deck laying skills clearly exceed mine!

Mark,

Bismarck is looking good, and those wood decks are especially stunning!


Real wood decks look the part, but I find they don't always behave - is the planking peeling up just aft of the funnel...?

nice work on the sub assemblies Mark!

Couldn't do it with my butter fingers though as I'd knock everything off trying to put them on the hull

The hangar fix looks just right, Mark. Too bad most people won't know the difference!

(...but WE will!)

It is the same part for each Kit. I had to modify the Kit Part in the Bismarck Kit.

Mark,

Nice job with making the modification, but why did you have to use a hanger from a Tirpitz kit?

Now onto her main Aircraft Hanger. As designed in the Kit , the Hanger is actually for the Tirpitz. Had to some Cutting and reworking of it to resemble Bismarck's Hanger and then add the P/E. More to come soon.....Cheers mark
