Looks like a seriously impressive model - great work!  :-))

Was it entirely built from the Hachette/Amati partwork, or did you make any scratchbuilt modifications and additions? The level of detail on the superstructure, fittings, ship's boats, etc. (not to mention the two Arado floatplanes) is superb.

No the only nods where cutting out timber to get lights and motors for the guns in.HO and the running gear from Germany not the part works running gear got vid of her on the water now she sails beautifully. The header on the vid should read B.M.B.S and not C.
