Steve, add my 1/350 bismarck and 1/350 Z-30 destroyer to my list please! The Z-30 will be a crossover from the SS GB.

 

I have officially started working on the Bismarck. Here is where she sits now.

Building a kit from your stash is like cutting a head off a Hydra, two more take it's place.

Brushed on several coats of Future for decal application and deck washes, then clear flat acrylic will be sprayed for further artist oil weathering. I chose the alligator tower art of U20 from the 1st U Boat Flotilla stationed at Kiel.

Thanks guys. Was gonna go with hairspray and rust on the base but decided to do a marbling scheme. The kit has some nice decals for the base so that will be coming up soon along with some weathering just to give the base a ”salty” look.

Looking good Marcus. I really like the work you did to the small boat strapping. What did you use?

Steve,

Thank you.  I used EZ-Line white, heavy line.

Merry Christmas everyone!  Its has been awhile since I posted last due to some recovery time for a schedule surgery. 

Installed the ships boats, anchors, railings on the boat deck and a few odds and ends.

Top down view.

A couple of bow shots just for the heck of it.

Well that all for now.  Can't decide to install the shelfing for the torpedo nets first and then install the main deck railings or the railings first and then the torpedo net decking.  Any way until the next post, be safe.

Wow PJ, that's some tiny work.

 

 

It’s sure is Steve. I lost one of the shoulder support parts that flew into oblivion so I fashioned one out of very thin wire.

UThanks Steve. Amazing work going on this GB. Great job gents.

Shot the tiny feller today with Nato Black and assembled the tiny deck gun. The wheels on the mount and gun shoulder supports were a PITA to put together.

More paint and weathering to follow.

I’m back to work on the U Boat that was put aside due to more urgent matters. The diving planes, prop shafts , rudders, net cutter and gun deck railings were added this evening. The darn railings are so fragile and thin that broke on me 3 times. I was able to repair them back together and you can’t tell they were damaged at all.

Steve, you have a lot more faith in me then I do. The next time I’ll build a U-boat will probably be in 1/72. Of course I have no idea where I’d put it.

Large parts or not that looks good with the primer. It shouldn't be too hard to piece that steering gear back together

IIRC the LWS was a useful thing fording rivers on the Eastern Front.

 Modeling is an excuse to buy books.

GreySnake i see what you mean by some parts are oversize. That rudder and shaft assembly looks supersized on that little sub! Looks good so worth the your effort. Can't wait to see the finished product 

In the pattern: Scale Shipyard's 1/48 Balao Class Sub! leaning out the list...NOT! Ha, added to it again - Viper MkVii, 1/32 THUD & F-15J plus a weekend madness build!
