Hi Dave
I'm getting it from SHG.  http://shgmodels.com/acatalog/  Not sure on the exact price but they reckon it should be about 175.00 plus P&P
They are also supplying the prop shafts and brass props.

Hi Andy

The image I posted is not the actual kit, but it is the same size.

If you are interested in the Bismarck try this site.

From the US

$250 dollars equates to about 154 pounds but you need to add postage.

They are not sure but they think it will be about  175 pounds.
Could not use the pound sign as it came up as a load of rubbish.

IF you check the White Ensign site you will see that postage will be shown on the invoice but not charged. The upgrade kit worth 24.99 is supplied free total cost with VAT 199.20p.No doubt the price will drop over the next few months but you pay the money and takes you choice
