    Model boat building, watching dvd's but boat building takes precedence.
  1. Thank you for that Bill, I went to Amazon and they were supposed to have 4 available but 1 week after purchasing it the money was back in the bank. with an email saying that there was none available. Last look they still show 4 available. I have found a book and received it yesterday and that is: Top Drawings The Battleship Bismarck by Waldemar Goralski. If there is anyone out there that can not get the book of drawings of the Bismarck I am happy to scan the pages and post them on this site and also the paper model website for everyone's benefit. Let me know. Barry
  2. Hi Capt, I am impressed with your workmanship. Am sure that it is going to be a spectacular ship when finished. I have a lot to learn. Can you tell me please where you were able to purchase the etched sheets that you have. I have the first three but not the others. I have a question to anyone who reads this, does the 1/200 Bismarck, Trumpeter kit, does the wooden decking and etched sheets compatible with Bismarck card kit as I have been told that they are supposed to be. I don't want to purchase something that is not compatible. Advice from modellers greatly appreciated. Keep up the e
  3. Hi all, I will be constructing the Bismarck soon in card {once I finish the other two ships I am building} the first time I have tried one. I am trying to find a copy of the following book "Bismarck (Super Drawings in 3d) by Waldemar Goralski". Does anyone know where I may be able to purchase a copy either old in excellent condition or new. Any help would be greatly appreciated. I have been advised to get this book or is there another book that I can get. Your advice would be greatly appreciated. Barry
  4. Hi Captain, I have just purchased the Bismarck 1:200 scale with all the upgrades from the people you told me about and now I have the long wait for it to come. That will give me time to get the Mississippi finished and get a lot further with the rigging on the Hms Endeavour. I really want to get these two out of the way before I start this one. I am going to keep an eye on how you are doing yours so that I know what to do. Good luck with it Captain. Barry A
  5. I see that you purchased it.Only question that I have for you is. Do you know how to use this machine as it is? Micro-mark has stated that they are no longer selling this item also the attachments they have for it most likely will be discontinued also. I you haven't already got one it is advisable to purchase a coolant system. I am a fitter and turner by trade and it took a lot of teaching to know how to use one. They are good fun to use. Good luck with it. Barry
  6. Thank you all I will try to document the build further as I work on it but at the moment my back injury has had me bed ridden since the new year so not much going on I am afraid. The ideas that you all have given are greatly appreciated, I will accept all the advice I can get. Thank you Barry
  7. I started this build approx twelve months ago and has been an on and of project. Attached are photo's showing how far I have got so far. 1. Firstly is the front 2. The middle 3. The rear 4. In the alcove in the middle I have put livestock which to me looks quite effective. 5. There is then the top of the 2nd deck front and rear 6. With the cabins I did not put the cast windows in as I am planning to fit light inside so that they can be turned on at night to make it look effective. Still not completed as you can see. 7. Next is the front and rear of
  8. I found a topic on MSW explaining the "Frolich Style Rope Walk Plans" and there was links to: Version 1 Drawing # sheet 1 Drawing # sheet 2 Version 2 Drawing # sheet 1 Drawing # sheet 2 Unfortunately they are broken links and no further work. Has anybody got these sheets, if so would you be able to send them to me please as I really want to see them? I await your response> Thank you Barry
  9. I'm having trouble with rigging my HMS Endeavor, it just doesn't look right
