It is the same part for each Kit. I had to modify the Kit Part in the Bismarck Kit.

Mark,

Nice job with making the modification, but why did you have to use a hanger from a Tirpitz kit?

Now onto her main Aircraft Hanger. As designed in the Kit , the Hanger is actually for the Tirpitz. Had to some Cutting and reworking of it to resemble Bismarck's Hanger and then add the P/E. More to come soon.....Cheers mark
