Great build Si.
It's been a long journey to see it completed and the finished Bismarck looks amazing. The patience on the rigging, very good. What's next?

cheers
Michael



Thanks Michael,

it has been a long journey, but I have learnt a lot along the way, the rigging did test my knowledge of bad language, but like anything else in our great hobby it is just practice.

Thanks for all the support along the way.

As for what's nest, good question.

I am thinking on of the below, all 1/350, of course and as they say, in no particular order.

HMS Ark Royal, (although waiting for a package from North Star)
HMS Prince of Wales (Bismarck Chase)
HMS Queen Elizabeth (Med 1941/2)
USS Texas 1944
Sevastepol

Will be a week or two before I get much workshop time, so got a little while to make my mind up

Cheers

Si

Hi Si!

Now I asked you to post some more pictures, and it seems I am among the last to have a look at them...thank you very much for posting some more impressions of your masterpiece - and that she truly is!!!

You did a great, an awesome job there, Mate, and all the details are amazing. Just the busy bridge with all the additional equipment - lots of Veteran stuff, if I remember correctly?

A truly great job!! BZ!!

Cheers,
Jan

Thanks Jan,

No worries Mate, the bridge was fun, most of references for the extra details came from a couple of very good photos of the Tirpitz Bridge in Patrick Bishop's book "Target Tirpitz.

This has been my most complex project to date, and I am pleased with the outcome.

Thanks for all the support and encouragement along the way.

Cheers

Si
