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

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
