Bismarck as always been an iconic ship to me, i love the whole ship design and so it is a model i always wanted to build in a larger scale.

I have started this model about a year ago and i guess i am around 40 % in its completion if not less, i have not taken photos from the beggining but i have taken some still in the early stages, i have searched for these old photos and i will post what i have and try to make a log from them, i hope you enjoy this long, long journey so far and the rest still to come.

First i started aplying the small PE portholes on the hull, the MK.1 detail set brings a lot of these head scratching goodies20180305_004926_resized.jpg

After the funnel was 90% done i have mooved to the hangars, i will place the smaller parts like search lights , cabinets etc when im finished with all the major PE. For cleaning the excess Cyano glue from the assembly i use my faithfull Glue Buster or acetone in extreme situations.39409210_2133295733348001_7332516958283235328_o.jpg39409664_2133214613356113_7338183463255670784_n.jpg39453582_2133403280003913_7599535745090453504_o.jpg39467823_2133250806685827_5112318800997384192_o.jpg

Love the workmanship and details that you are doing on this fine model.
Are you going to leave the ship as a pristine condition or will you do some aging on her, like rust stains etc.?
I looking forward to see your next entry.

Thank you, my intention is to give her some aging, like you said some rust and also some dirt stains, i have started testing the weathering and i would like to give her a "used look" like i believe these warships may have looked like during battles, no damage tough.. :D
