Trumpter Bismark Wooden Decks
« on: April 23, 2013, 10:27:31 AM »

 Iíve just started my build of the Trumpter 1/200 scale Bismark kit. So far Iíve fitted the Deanís Marine single motor option kit which involved modifying the original rudders and easing out the central prop shaft housing to take the M2 Shaft. I have also made a retainer box for the 6volt Lead Acid battery Iím going to use. All has gone well so far just waiting for a 15amp MTronics ESC and Planet 2.4 receiver to complete the R/C work.
I did paint the main deck with the recommended Tan paint but to be honest I am not happy with the finished colour, (it seems far too dark to my untrained eye!). I have therefore ordered an ArtWok wooden deck overlay from Freetime Hobbies in the States, (No one I could find in the UK had one in stock!!).
Has anyone fitted one of these overlays to their models and if so are there any pitfalls to avoid or are there any tips to make fitting easy. Any advice appreciated.

Hi i have the wooden decks for the 200 scale Arizona and the 200 scale Yamato both from Art wok the quality is superb. When fitted they will take the models to a higher level . The average cost of the above is around £ 75. :(( :(( :(( :(( :((
