Coming together very nicely Mark,

The North Star searchlights and Rangefinders look excellent in place.

Cheers

Thanks SI. I am happy that I got those Sets as it adds lovely detail to a very plain Kit.....Cheers Mark

Mark, you are seriously moving along here! Wondering if you're trying to give Si a run for his money

Certainly some mighty fine work too!



Thanks Russell but unlike Si, I only build one Kit at a Time.... ......CHeers mark

Thanks for you comments Tim much appreciated. The Wood Deck isn't peeling up. That is part of the Ramp System leading up to the Catapault.....Cheers mark



LOL! Glad to hear it! Your deck laying skills clearly exceed mine!





Don't worry Tim I still have problems with some Decks. I just found through trial and error for me that the Mk1 Decks work best for me.

Mark,

Bismarck is looking good, and those wood decks are especially stunning!


Real wood decks look the part, but I find they don't always behave - is the planking peeling up just aft of the funnel...?

nice work on the sub assemblies Mark!

Couldn't do it with my butter fingers though as I'd knock everything off trying to put them on the hull
