Shane-
I was not having a go, if you read my post I was just pointing out that the DESIGNER Sergio has poisted on the german flotte forum several details which is of direct concern. If you go and look you will see what I am on about. TO make this crystal clear Amati does not know the total weight of the when Sergio posted. The turrets for one are very heavy being white metal coated with brass etch. The weight is well above the waterline, this surly is a concern. Have you seen or read any details from Hachette or Amati proving the r/c version works, I havn't. We are paying upwards of 700 for this partwork, for that money I expect things correct, there are so many builds on the web departing from Hachette's instructions how can the novice be confident to finish the model.

As Down Below has said, if you continuiously post high profile build then expect criticism

Shane, I've been enjoying all this, please don't put a damper on things. This whole thread has reminded me why I'm a scratch builder and have little interest in assembling components of dubious quality and accuracy that have been made by someone else and sold to me in drip feed fashion at inflated prices.

As Martin might have said, "Suffisant (smug), moi?"

This partwork is costing upwards of 700, for that amount of money I expect a perfect or near perfect kit, is it not right to ask questions in plain english. After all who goes into a car show room and buys a car without asking questions, if you don't like the answer the salesman gives then either walk away or as more probing questions. Then again this kit does take a bit of intelegance to get right.

Some interesting weight figures have finally come to light for this model via Sergio at Amati who is the designer.

The total weight of the Hull (with no Superstructure) but including Hachette RC/Running gear will be 2.9 - 3 Kgs.

The Superstructure approx 1.5 - 1.8 Kgs.

Approx 700 grams of additional Ballast will be required for the model to sit at the right water line, (this will vary up or down depending on how heavy individual completed model is as a result of finishing products used for inner/outer hull & glue used etc and any extras such a rotating turrets ec.)

An expected total model weight will be around 5.5 - 6 Kgs

"Daryl" is no longer a member of this forum.   
No, he wasn't pushed, he jumped.

After a barrage of accusations made against me & this forum Daryl decided this forum was not for him and deleted his account..... good luck to him. Lets leave it there and get back to model boats.

Down below was right, Isabelle is back from shore leave and all the subscription issues have all been sorted and the missing magazines are now all on there way to me over the next week.
Thanks Isabelle.

( It takes a real woman to do a mans job! Do you think I'll get away with that, maybe not, I withdraw it.  ::) )

Right, I've cleaned up the topic.... mainly all my own moaning, so now we can get to the matter in hand:-
Let Build the Bismark!


Robert: How is your planking going?
Down Below: How is your build going?
Mark: How is your build going on the other side of the planet?
Marki: What issue are you up to?
Colin: You've missed your vocation as a Christmas cracker gag writer.  ::)

Any other Hachette Bismarck builds going on? Stand up and be counted.  ;)


................................................................ and peace broke out on the forum once again.  :D

Hi Martyn,

My model is coming on nicely thanks.  As Markus says, See for yourself ;) www.buildthebismarck.co.uk.

The planking is nearly finished, at least from mid-ships forward.  I'm leaving the stern planking until I eventually get my Hachette RC gear, just to make it easier to fit the prop shafts.  I strayed from the instructions with the planking, foolishly under the misguided belief that I know better than the designers......  The results seem OK, so I'm pleased that I did. (Not that I would encourage anybody else to - don't blame me if you do what I did and it goes pear shaped !!)

Just about to start on the deck, which makes a pleasant change from that #@$@!! planking

Cheers
Mark
