ooh another Bismark build.I have a question. I assume the parts are prepainted? If so I wonder how they are going to hide the seams between the hull parts.

BigGrin Hi Mick,
Glad you decided to do a build diary ThumpUp As you say, all's gone together easily so far and your build is looking good.
Have you looked into upgrade kits yet? I had a browse on Ebay but nothing jumped out as being able to fit. Was hoping for metal barrels Sad

Anyway, keep up the good work and will be following with interest.

Regards
Gray

Hi for what I see of hull seams they overlap so the seams will be seen ,as to if that's right or not ,time will tell as get more hull parts ,think the outer barrels of guns are ally anyway they felt to heavy to be plastic.think going to have to get lot more of this yet ,before can decide on extra detail yet ,cheers mick.BigGrin
