G'day, just received issues 92-95, the brass overlays for the turrets. Does anybody know why the rear part for the turret '888' has two different pattern 'vents??. Dave

I don't know of anybody who is lighting the model.

There is some discussion about smoke generators on my forum here http://buildthebismark.proboards.com/index.cgi?board=mods&action=display&thread=1416

Are we to assume that Martin has pulled the plug?
A tragedy if so but I must admit I have a pile of unopened parts that I'm going to get to when I get one of those round toit's

I don't think he has, I was talking to him at the Mayhem weekend and he says he hasn't had time.

If you take a blade or a similar sharp object and score lines on the hatches on the turret front, it makes them look as if they actually slide. I took a photo of the only turret I didn't do it on, obviously I forgot!. A small detail if you can be bothered....Dave.

Hi all.

In New Zealand we are up to Issue 60 and have just received the first deck part for the rear superstructure. Does anyone know the reason that we must varnish the deck? was the Deck on the Bismarck Varnish or shiny? Thanks guys.
