Sharp work, Mark!

Even though most interpretations of Kriegsmarine small boat underwater antifouling paint show a dark grey, your choice of red is striking. I like it a lot!




Thanks Tim. I used the Kagero Book on the Bismarck and they show the Anti-Fouling as Red so went with it. I also like the colour contrast also.....Cheers Mark

Mark,

Very nice work on the rigging, its not easy getting the lines taut and not bending the masts or yardarms.

Mark



Thanks Mark. Forgot to mention in the Build that I replaced the Foremast and Yardarm with Brass Rod.....Cheers mark

Wow Mark,

stunning work, she looks fantastic, and you're almost there!!

One point if I may - you got your 10,5cm AAA mixed up, starboard side is correct, port the after ones need to move forward and vice versa. As long as they're not glued into place should be no issue...

Thanks for your comments Jan much appreciated. And a nice pickup on the A/A Mounts. They have been rectified.....Cheers mark

Cheers,
Jan
