MDF framework is bad news for anyone that might want to RC it in the same way as the Bismarck had this option which has plywood framework Crying


Absolutely. DeAgos Tirpitz is much better in this regard.

That being said, I know a guy who insists on making the Scharnhorst RC capabale, with no experience in building ships. I've added him to my “funny stuff to follow“ link folder.

I guess you could replace the MDF with PlyBigGrin just use the MDF parts as a templateCool regards PhilCool

Issue 3



Side beams and lateral supports are added to the hull structure. The rear turret is fitted with barrels. Those are are cast not lathed, which made some people unhappy, but after a quick rub with 400 grit sandpaper and a polish with steel wool, they look totally fine for me.

This is the last of the teaser issues. The build will now concentrate on the hull structure.

After the usual bout of logistical problems at the start of a Hachette partwork, I'm back at building the Scharnhorst. Issue 4 lets me add 2 frames and side beams to the front structure of the ship.

I really hope this gets released in New Zealand, along with the Prinz Eugen. It's been a few years since we had a good size partwork warship down here. The last was HMS Hood.

I think you can order the Bismarck in NZ as a Full kit when it's back in stock. DeAgo has taken over the partwork from Hachette or are cooperating or something. In any case ModelSpace now have the Bismarck.

Scharnhorst 5



The middle frame is extended, another crosswise frame is added along with two lateral supports. Everything still fits nicely, there's no wiggling or jamming.

A second crosswise frame is delivered but not yet installed. This'll go into storage for a while along with a 2mm part for the gun turrets delivered in issue 1. The last one will be needed in issue 9, already the first cries of "Wait, we were supposed to keep that part?"are echoing through forums and Facebook groups. Yes, yes you keep all of the things. LOL

Issue 6: With 3 more frames and another two side beams, the Scharnhorst has now reached roughly 3/5th of her total length.

This is the point where a lot of novice builders start complaining about the side beams not fitting, them having to sand out lots of material or having to go at it with a hammer. The problem here is that those builders assume the side beams to be symmetrical along their length.

They're not.

Stick em in the wrong way around and one slot will be ever so slightly out of phase. Force them in and now you've got tension forces running all throughout your internal structure. "Fun".

Hi greyhawk
she's growing fast now. Looks like she will be of a comparable size to Bismarck when complete. Look forward to next update
Happy building

Yes, it's the same scale as the Bismarck.



7: So someone at Hachette was nice enough to acknowledge my request for a sped up delivery to cancel out the start difficulties I had so here's an unscheduled update straight out of the men flu quarantine zone to get us a bit closer to the actual release schedule.

We see here the addition of another middle frame segment as well two crosswise frames and lateral supports. We've reached the 5 percent completion point with this issue.

Back to your regularly scheduled Scharnhorst update, with issue 8 I have now extended the build to the full length of the hull. Now do be careful, if this thing eventually goes on sale internationally (at least in Europe) and you decide to build one yourself, do yourself the favor of waiting for issue 9 and fit the side beams at the same time.



As you can see in the picture above "officially" the entire stern segment is only kept in line through two little tabs on the middle frame. No side beams are present. This a the perfect recipe to make a banana. Wait for issue 9, then fit everything together at the same time. You'll be much happier. I've just left them off in the picture for demonstration purposes.

That looks like a nice rigid framework they have you put together.

Should be nice and strong for the rest of the bulild sequence.

Issue 9




The last side beams arrive and are added to the hull structure (As mentioned I already did that together with issue 8 to be sure everything sits ok)

I also get to build the base of the second 28mm turret "Bruno". This one differs a bit from "Caesar" which was built in issues 1-3 in that there are 2 small parts added to the upper back (we suspect these are storage containers for tarps). One of the parts came with this issue, the other one is the one you needed to retain from issue 1.
