Hi All,
Here is the start of my build of DKM Tirpitz.
The kit is good and the accessories made by Pontos are great to. I will be doing a little bit of changing the kit if I see it being incorrect and noticeable. Otherwise it will be as per instructions plus PE.

I made a start early by joining the hull sides together last week so had time to dry out.
I have now looked at the hull detail and started cleaning up what i can and replacing some of it.
I have corrected the bow as the kit hull is Bismark mould. The curve is different on the Tirpitz. Also will be replacing the Ladders.
I have installed nuts on the inside ready for pedestals when i get some.

Waiting for post man to bring me my paints as well today. I invested on all the weathering sets too. Pics when they arrive.

Thanks guys.
The deck is now on and the prop shafts installed.I also fitted a 2.5mm strip down the centre to put back the strip I sanded off because of the joint but this way you can't see the seem. I have also done the 6 - 15mm guns this evening. I really like the Pontos etch.
Also here are the pics of the stash that came today.

Chris.

Cheers Mark.

Today was slow. I've drilled out the portholes moved a few aswell to incorporate the 4th ladder at the rear and deleted one on one side as the original plans show ish and added the eyelids. Then I used stretched sprue to simulate the weld lines.

Thanks for the nice comments guys.

I ordered some Mk1 portholes and the eduard set as it has extra bits the Pontos set didn't.
I have marked off the deck to remove the furniture ready for replacing.
I have had a go at making the blast bags with milliput. Very tricky but look better than none there. I then started to drill the hull with 0.3mm drill for the steps on the side.

Thanks guys. Appreciate your nice comments.

Here I have done quite a bit of modding. I started ny removing the steps and the detail then I removed one bit off the smoke stack and replaced with plasticard. Also I cut out the vents and made my own. I fitted the next part which had gaps so cut the supports off and replaced again with plasticard. Iv'e installed some of the ribs, not to happy with them but no other way to do them with my ability. Installed some of the ladders to.

I have also finished installing the steps on the Hull.

Thanks guys.

I have now finished the Funnel. All ready for primer. I have now started on the decks. I started by cutting the deck in half at a point where you can't see it so I can handle the two halves easier. Then moved on to drilling out the portholes then removing detail also the parts needed to be removed for the PE to be fitted. I also removed the vents and replaced with my own.
