After few building steps and first time work with metal parts I say my self.. Its too hard and dificult work for me... But very nice efect of metal parts. I start thinking.. Its must be more like make hard work and finaly put into vitrine only for looking. Every time, when I see nice models and diorama with models I have feels that its too little.. I want more.. Some using.. Playing.. or something usefull

So what to do?? Rebuild this Bismarck or some biger ??? I found Trumpeter 1:200. Before I check internet also this site and found some models and work other modelars. Yes this is it. 

Decided. Trumpeter Bismarck 1:200 will be my radio controled favorit ship Bismarck model 🙂

8. 7. this year arrived big box. OMG so huge model for me. I remember on my first builded ship over 40 years a go I was a small boy and I made it only from simple wood toothpick and simple glue 🙂

 

And I told my self this is Victory ( when I survive its my second building plan) 🙂  Yes from 1 km of distance looked like Victory 🙂

This is will my second ship. Uhmm a little jump from my first Victory 🙂 

 

I start compare models. I like Revell models. This is my first Trumpeter model. On first look I found 2 difernts not good for my look. First back side of ship is not correct for me oposit Revell kit. Uuhhhhh. 

And second bottom of ship from out side is empty oposit revel model. So I must change it. With minor efect I change this back and I made botom of ship by Revell Bismarck

These propellers and rudders are really neat and clean. Where did you find them? 

I have the Trumpeter Bismarck, like you do, and would love to install such nice parts.

Very good rescue of your paint problem  - it can be very  diss-heartening when that happens, it happened to me with my HMS Warspie build  - but with a re-think you managed to pull it back and what a Superb job you have done.

That battleship is going to move like an Italian Riva.

 

Yves

Yes you are absolutely right.

here is my first video .. first wet test.. I drive only one quarter of power.. otherwise Riva... video is not so good because in one hand I have handy and second remote controll

 

I have not video when I test full power and in this time front of shif go up (Italian Riva) and back side dive. I forgot that small windows is open I check only top of shif and water coming inside...

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 “Advance Ship Modeling Through Research”. We provide support to our members in their efforts to raise the quality of their model ships.

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.
