Not being a warship man, I have watched intermittently your build progress. May I congratulate you Martin on such good, clear, photos of the build - That little bloke is a great touch. I presume that somewhere out of shot there is a 'normal' workbench full of junk etc., as that pictured is just toooo tidy !
Best of luck with the rest of the build

A technical query on the model,
I've sanded the notches in the frame up to 6mm to match the tubes for the drives for the screws:

Looking down onto the model the Port and starboard path show a slight divergence, they're not parallel with the centre of the keel.

Looking from the side they're not parallel with the keel either, dropping slightly.

We're only talking mm's, slight but noticable, is everyone elses the same? Is this something to do with r/c boats?

Yup, there are angled down, probably A to get bigger props on, and B because it's difficult to get the motor/gearbox any lower.  Hadn't spotted the divergance, so I'm going to check that on mine.  Have a look at the Details page on my website to see what I'm doing about it.  www.buildthebismarck.co.uk

The joy of being 20-odd issues behind is that I get to see where you guys have been.
I recieved the resin part for the middle screw, straight on to it with a square and mine seems to be true and even. Perhaps they've ironed out all the problems by now?
I looked at the planking on my bow and even though the lines flowed from the stern, midships and fore-end, it suddenly popped up to the bow giving an almost chevron-like look at the join. I've 'de-planked' one side to replank it continuing the top row of planks giving it a smoother look, imagining that I had one plank long enough to go from stem to stern. [pikkies to follow if I can work out how to upload or reference tham]
Just trying to stay in the loop

I have now completed both hulls and sanded them for the next layer of planking, the original hull upto and including the deck wieghs 2lb 14ozs, and the one I am copying form the original bits wieghs in at 12 ozs, there is as you can see a large weight difference, I only hope that the superstructure weight can be kepted down on my own version as much as the hull has been, everything has so far fitted together perfectly.................

It appears the domain for www.buildthebismarck.com has expired, maybe the guy gave up the ghost as it was a dire site from the outset with lots of promises about everything but little about getting on with the build :-\

Just finishing 2nd layer of planking, issue 40 and am doing side extensions for removable deck area after to allow for better water protection and ease of fitting deck on and off.
Happy planking!

Hi folks,

I just found this forum and as I'm a 'hatchette' Bismark builder thought I'd register and post :)

I've just spent hours reading this forum, thanks (fellow) Martin for the great informative pictures, its nice to see other peoples work too.

I'm up to issue 50, I guess like most UK subscribers. I'm in the process of fitting those strange front and rear port hole ply strips and sanding down the hull to suit.

A good tip in making the hull wonderfully smooth, once you've filled any gaps with filler (I used curpinol in a tube filler as its water based), after sanding smooth, mix some filler with a little water to reduce it and paint it over any imperfections with a brush. Sand and paint again. You get a great result. I'll post some pictures of mine soon.

All the best.

Martin

Thanks for that Martin, sounds like a good idea to be!

I'm a little behind with my build as I'm fishing off another commission.... long story, but hope to get back on track soon.

The OTHER Martin  ;)

For anyone in Australia that thought Issue 26 was short a part, Bissett advises that the publisher has admited this and the the delivery part 100 is "tba"  :o
Just FYI

I was short part 100, the rear deckhead of the first chunk off superstructure that we recieved. It was meant to be in issue 26. Bissett were aware of it but perhaps it could have been in some but not in others?

Martin (as in 'Martin Builds the Bismarck' seems to be leaving a while between parts! At this rate we here in Oz will be passing him, who do we look to then for those pithy words of wisdom and those 'things to watch out for'?
