I think that two factors, the movie "Sink the Bismarck!" and a plastic model of the Bismarck - both of which happened when I was kid- caught my attention on the most famous BB of all times. What probably makes me different from other members of this forum is that that attraction was abruptly cut off for decades when my country fall behind the iron curtain and everything published in the West related to WWII was censored only to be substituted by leftist revisionism of history. No room for an imperialistic war and their BB under the new history- not even those of the western allies. It was only after I could finally escape from the "1984" drama that I lived in my country and arrived to the USA that I came across with Cameron's documentary "Expedition Bismarck" which make me reconnect to the world history and be able to continue my interest on nautical/military subjects, especially warships. I'm also an avid ship modeler too and of course, Kriegsmarine ship models from a large part of my collection.
Silently, I've been enjoying this forum and other like the Hood assocn and Bismarck-Tirpitz sites and I think I must take this opportunity to thank all members that with their interesting, sometimes comprehensive and knowledgeable posts make this forum a must to visit for me on a regular basis.
Tanks to all,

Also, I'm afraid that it is little what I can contribute to this forum, other than being an avid reader/consumer. ...
