Post by: kelvin on January 30, 2009, 08:58:29 am
here you can see how I am building the Bismarck of Hachette. I start from number 22 because I,ve no pictures of the previous numbers
 :-)

Post by: kelvin on January 30, 2009, 09:03:44 am
I live in Holland so the costs of the Bismarck are in €.

number 1: € 1
number 2:€3,95
number 3 -140 all €6, 25 :embarrassed:

so the total price of the numbers is: €867,45,-
I hope I,ve enough money for the engines

Hello there! :-)   Interesting to see your progress so far.   Only one point - your photos are often out of focus, i.e. too blurred to do justice to your work.  {:-{  Maybe some trial and error with the camera before you post onto your thread?    Good luck!

Dear forumreafers,

I always used navybleu as the color in my profile.
but there comes a change, it can be    red
                                                    green
                                                   orange
                                                    seagreen
                                           or      brown
                                          or       lightgreen
Title: Re: Kelvin builds the Bismarck
Post by: kelvin on May 16, 2009, 04:02:59 pm
well I very proud to tell you. the winner of the color is seagreen

from now on all my text will be this color

Thats's not very helpful for readers who suffer from colour blindness. Why not just use black like everybody else?
Title: Re: Kelvin builds the Bismarck
Post by: Peter Fitness on May 16, 2009, 11:29:47 pm
I'm not colour blind, but black stands out much better on the white background.

The build is coming along nicely, Kelvin.

mayby some people think that because I am building the Bismarck and the fact that i am dutch. I am some kind of nazifan. for the people who think this this is far away from reality. I am only building the bismarck because it is just a beautifull ship.  and I am a real england fan. My favorite music is: gues wath? the greatest band there ever was ofcource:  THE BEATLES
england is together with france and italy in my top 3 list of greatest country`s ever. ( The netherlands are at number 6 because of the bad weather and cold winters)   

so now everybody knows I am just normal

so now get back to just the thing this website is made for. modeling.

next pictures of number 58/61 will arive next week. see you all next time
and thanks for reading

i also like the art of this great battleship.

here some nice paintings ( not my creation )

(http://i621.photobucket.com/albums/tt292/Dutchkelvin/openfire.jpg)


Can I mention the artist that painted this particular painting which is titled "Open Fire."  It was painted by Philip Trappett.  He has actually produced this painting as a limited edition print.  Details are on my web site http://www.buildthebismarck.co.uk/ if anybody is interested in purchasing a copy. (and just in case anybody is wondering, I'm not on commission !)

I don't really get the connection here.  I just thought you were a modeller, and a pretty good one at that  :-))  I'm not sure that any modeller coudl be called normal though.  Well, that's what my wife says {:-{

I'm enjoying your build thread - your Bismarck is coming on a treat :)

Kelvin,

I am sure nobody thinks you a Nazi sympathizer. Keep up the good work on what is a fine model of a great ship regardless who built it and why.
