  1. A little procedure I thought I'd do it in 3-4 days ... oh how naive I was. Two weeks for me pretty hard work. But for a few days I didn't do anything and I had to fight for it. Finally, I thought today that I had to finish a little and see some result. It had the effect of returning my desire to work on camouflage. Prior to this, it was about the proportional measurement of the belts, control and possible correction. And several times around the superstructure until I got tired. Measure, obscure, control, correction and everything over and over and over. Uff. So we only have a white belt here. But it pleased me, because I see a small result and I hope that it going in the right direction. MadMan.
  2. in color... it's also a play of light and shadow, in some shots it's lighter than it really is ... the problem is in my camera samsung s8 mobile phone I will bring pictures with camouflage stripes next time. I hope. I apologize for creating so many pictures about the same thing.
  3. Update... Glued all parts necessary to form strips of Baltic camouflage. Others that would interfere with the creation will be glued only afterwards.
  4. The point is that in most of the pictures is Bismarck either without all radar or has all three. Here he misses one in front on top of fire control station. As for the dive, yes it is higher. It certainly does not have fully flooded buffer tanks, and probably not even full diesel tanks. Cruise through this channel is specific. I know it there. Countless times I drove over him and I also sailed a few times alongside him from Kiel to Norway. ๐Ÿ˜‰ Incidentally, Bismarck had a collision with another vessel while cruising this channel. Even one sailor fell from the deck to the canal.
  5. For small rest... One of my rare shots of Baltic camouflage Yves do you see something interesting if you focus on radar antennas? ๐Ÿ™‚
  6. uuupsss primer ?? I didnt use it before when I worked on the hull and I use PE parts there too. Also rudders is without... You know, its about my skill...
  7. ๐Ÿ™‚ Yves as I mentioned that I saw your uboot long ago and was an inspiration to me, you also colored PE parts. ๐Ÿ™‚ As well as the reactions here all of you are a satisfaction and another challenge for me because I always look at yours works. Not to dye also occurred to me. But Bismarck is my favorite ship. I've seen a few builds and I have to say I've always missed something Especially the whole as it looked. Somewhere camouflage, inaccuracy, incomplete or a combination of it. That's why I try my best to keep it as it should be. Baltic camouflage is most important to me and therefore the color will have to be. She is also very pretty. It will really be a challenge I am looking forward to and at the same time I am afraid of. That's why I'm in a hurry because I want to work on it. While working on the hull, I measured the position, inclination and position of camouflage belts. This is important for continuing the superstructure. I spent enough time searching for historical images and viewing. I hope that you can understand what I want to say with my English... ๐Ÿ˜‰ MMSK Jan.
  8. Yes, I figured I'd lose something. In the first test I hit a ladder in the pool and I remembered a small triangle at the back that probably hit him. He was torn off, but he was still there. I was glad because I would otherwise have to drain the pool and look for it at the bottom ๐Ÿ™‚ And that my friend released me there after the end of the city pool. On the ruders I laboriously measured and glued 40 small metal parts, I expected to disappear a few. Survived all ๐Ÿ™‚ There are also 8 rows of ladders, about 60 windows. Nothing is lost. I hope it will remain that way. But I'd rather strengthen bonding ๐Ÿ˜‰

About the NRG

If you enjoy building ship models that are historically accurate as well as beautiful, then The Nautical Research Guild (NRG) is just right for you.

The Guild is a non-profit educational organization whose mission is to โ€œAdvance Ship Modeling Through Researchโ€. We provide support to our members in their efforts to raise the quality of their model ships.๏ปฟ๏ปฟ

The Nautical Research Guild has published our world-renowned quarterly magazine, The Nautical Research Journal, since 1955. The pages of the Journal are full of articles by accomplished ship modelers who show you how they create those exquisite details on their models, and by maritime historians who show you the correct details to build. The Journal is available in both print and digital editions. Go to the NRG web site (www.thenrg.org) to download a complimentary digital copy of the Journal. The NRG also publishes plan sets, books and compilations of back issues of the Journal and the former Ships in Scale and Model Ship Builder magazines.
