This is a magnificent model but......

Check out the admiral's bridge windows. The front looks good but the sides should have 4 windows, not three.

I can't speak or write German so someone who can should let this guy know.

Well, I'm pretty sure they all speak a bit of English :cool:

Bismarck 1:50 after 726 days!

Post by Ulrich Rudofsky » Wed Jan 21, 2009 1:01 pm

After 726 days a 1:50 Bismarck has been finished. Follow the construction sequence here: http://forum-marinearchiv.de/smf/index. ... icseen#new

The builder states the following in last posting:


Finally. On Sunday the Bismarck leaves my workshop as the last commissioned model order [ever? UR]. Unfortunately my camera broke during Christmas, but the fellow who is picking the model up will do that.

It was a very demanding model and I am happy that the giant will soon be gone.
It required a lot of patience and sometimes grief and almost destroyed my marriage, but all was successfully endured.

Here are the dimensions once more:

Length 5.04 m
Width: 0.72 m
Height 1.15 m
Weight ca 200 kg

Functional parts:
Lights, smoke, fog horn [apparently some planned functions were omitted: sirene, turning turrets and screws. UR]

Material: wood, aluminum, brass, plastic,

Composition: 2 hull halves, complete superstructure.

Total construction time: 726 Tage

Wow. Unfortunately (for me) I can't read German and it isn't obvious to me where the photos are. Maybe I just didn't look hard enough?

I apologize. I think you have to register as a user. The usual thing routine: a user name, email, password...repeat password.
