Scharnhorst by CDW - Halinski - 1:200 - Card Model


Recommended Posts

I saw an online build review of this 1:200 Scharnhorst kit and had to find one for myself. This fellow is an extraordinary modeler and does great justice to this kit:



After I began searching for the kit, I realized it is currently out of print. But I was lucky and found the kit at GPM, along with all the photo etch, metal barrels, props, and anchors. The only thing they didn't have were the laser cut frames. I next ran across a shop named Freetime Hobbies in the Ukraine. They had the laser cut frames for this kit and I ordered them, but have not received them yet to photograph them. After reviewing the kit, I am glad I found the laser cut frames. They are extensive.


As you will see in the photographs, the photo etch is extensive with this set!

Wow! We have had some ambitious card projects started around here recently. I wish you well on this one and look forward to seeing it come together.

Trust me, I will not start this model until I get at least two simpler card models finished and under my belt. I may not find another one of these and don't want to screw it up.

I have your tutorial all lined up with my sheets printed out and all supplies, except I am waiting on a precision hole punch tool to arrive from Micro-Mark. That should give me a good start then I'll do something a little more complex before starting the "shiny horse".

I'm also looking forward to this build. Halinski are probably the best card kit maker, at least as far as I've found so far. Happy building :).



Cheers, Danny
