Anyone ever finish this, I did a job recently and when I entered the property, I saw the chap had two part finished models, one the Titanic and the other the Bismark, I'd never seen either of them before and when I queried them he said he could not do any more to them, so i asked what he intended to do with them and he offered me the lot including all the issues of the mag and parts etc, for both ships for free.

So I've now got another model (Bismark, I farmed the Titanic out) sitting on my shelf to be finished.


Anyone who wants the mags is welcome to them, they are complete in binders, I will never read them and I don't need them for the build, of course I would want them picked up or post and package supplied.

Hi all, I have just joined the forum, as I have restarted my Bismarck build after many years of having put it aside.

Well yes I do hope so.
I am using 3X10mm balsa strips to add between the ribs so as to have a better base for the planking.

I thought it might be a bit better than glue and gauze. Will add about 120 grams to the mass. Given a max displacement of 6250g +/-10g will still need 2500g ballast.
I have read through your build as far as it went and for me when faced with the planking some 6 years ago I stopped the hull with 12 strips of the 1st layer on.
I continued with deck and superstructure for odd hours here and there for some 6 months. Other things got in the way, a proper place to build, work, home projects (including construction of a garage) and life matters as many others have faced. 
BTW Why all the verification checks?

And so on go more planks over the balsa and ribs.
Note another small change from the assembly instructions: I inserted the shafts before planking.
I could not see how I could drill holes after planking was done.

Yeah I think that's OK.

Polyurethane glue for this stage of the planking. It foams and I cut back the foam.
I assembled the frames with external grade PVA. I am swapping to aliphatic resin (titebond 3) for the rest of the superstructure frames. I might use the titebond for the second layer of planks and avoid pinning - use rubber bands?
