Where are the Big Bismarck models Logs?

Recommended Posts

Before the fall of MSW, in the old world (pre-December 2012), there was a couple of gentlemen who had actually started a Build Log of the latest 1/200 Bismarck by Trumpeter.

 

What happened with these? Have they been discouraged by the loss of data ?

 

I would love to read about this fabulous model.

Norman,

 

I share your frustration and have a hard time accepting that so much knowledge and efforts disappeared completely. I hope and pray that the MSW #2 is now fully backed up on a regular basis and that the mishap that took place will never happen again.

 

Instead of restarting your Log, why not start a new one (with a Bismarck kit) or just place some of the beautiful pictures of your Trumpeter Arizona in the Kit Gallery? I remember reading your Blog on the Arizona and it really deserve a place in the Gallery.

 

So, make us all happy and post some pictures of your big marvel.

 

Cheers.

Yves

One of them was mine... I spent an hour putting a replacement thread together but the forum wouldn't let me post it because it had "too many pics". They were all photobucket links too?! :blink:

 

Anyway, I got mad and haven't tried again. Work continues on the beast though; I've made a lot of progress since my original thread was so cruely and violently taken from internet land. I'm keeping it going on another forum; it's just more work than I want to do to run multiple logs on different sites.

Channell,

 

I'd say "go for it"..  :)  Many of tall ship guys like the work being done on the resin/plastic ships.  I know I'm one of them.   As for picture limitations, I think it's either 5 or 10 to the post.  This had to be reset downwards as the forum software is capable of allowing practically an unlimited amount of photos per post.

 

 

And  I hope you'll reopen your Bismarck log, even if it's just an "executive summary" (pictures only :D ) to get caught up to date.

Yves,

   Cheer up you can find build logs on the www for the Bismarck real easy, and good ones to. MSW 1.0 crashed now we have 2.0 it's even better. Just keep a positive attidude...

 

I lost my build logs too. I am slowly adding them back. It's just finding the time to do it. But it will be done...

 

Here's a couple of build logs I found that might help you Yves....

Maybe I'm just the opposite... I absolutely love to look at all things wooden and "Age of Sail" but I prefer to actually build "Steel Navy" stuff.

 

Anyway, MW has been having their own technical problems of late so it's a bit tempting to  "jump ship" and spend more time over here. :piratetongueor4:

I'm building in wood right now,  well not at this moment but that's what's on the table.  Even so, after visiting the Iowa BB-61 here in Los Angeles I've got the bug to build a fast battleship in plastic.  All this is to say count this as another vote for seeing modern navy in the build logs.

I got two of the BB-63 Missouri in 1/192 scale of the sterling model. They are sitting on the shelf and will still be for some time, I have also pick up a lot of the PE parts for one of them. I got one off of Ebay and pay a few bucks for it the other was from one of my club members who past away and they had an auction for the stuff he had in his shop, well I won the second one that way, not sure if I will make it into the BB-62 or just sell it on Ebay or not. Got plenty of time before I have to sit down and think about it.

I see alot of people talking, but where are the builds?  I just bought the Revell 1/350 Bismarck w/a ton of goodies.  I opted for this scale over the 1/200th because of limited space and cost.  So in the near future, no talk, will build for all to see.............. :piratebo5:

And to give you a idea, I spent well over $300.00 on kit and all the little bits to bring it to life........... :cheers:

Started my build log yesterday - Bismarck by Dawie van Rensburg - Trumpeter - PLASTIC - Scale 1/200 Pontos Detail Up set "Advanced" upgrade kit. Obviously plastic most probably molded in China?, but will be built by myself here in sunny South Africa.

 

Brain, when I did my research on which ship to build, I seriously tried to get hold of the Amati model, but I just could't find any. My quest must have been driven by my wood modeling background . . . . !! Made peace with this and decided to try the plastic world of modeling - I think the availability of the Pontos Advanced upgrade kit made the difference and the challenge worth my while . . .

 

Dawie.

Good Day Gentlemen,

I am new here but been signed up for over a year. I didn't really participate because I wasn't doing any wood ships at the time. I usually do plastic but that is about to change. I now have 3 kits but don't know which one to do first.

 

I am currently working on Trumpeter's 1/200 Missouri with the deluxe photo etch set. Maybe I need to post that first. What a great site this is, so full of information. I can feel the frustration about the loss of the first site since I waas a member of the sister site that lost all of their data also. It never occured to me that sites like this would not back up their data.
