Hi!

Post by The_Ships_Cat » Wed Oct 08, 2008 7:53 pm

Hi guys.
Just wanted to say hello coz I'm a newbie.
I found this forum as I want to build the Revell 1/350th Bismarck to accopany my Trumpeter H.M.S Hood, and though i might get some more info on Bismarck before I build her. I have a few naval books but nothing much to help me build a good replica, though my dad got me the nice Gunpower books on German guns for my last two Christmas presents. (Nice one dad :wink: :!: )

So I hope to enjoy my time here and look forward to what everyone has to say.
TTFN,

I buyed my Revell more than a month ago but haven´t even start on it. As a matter of fact is on line behind my 1/350 Trumpeter Admiral Kutznezov russian CVN (which I haven´t even started neither). But I already have my 1/350 Tamiya Bismarck being displayed alongside Trumpeter Hood and Tamiya PoW. About my scheduled painting scheme I haven´t yet decided but there are some really interesiting threads here about that precise topic which have very important posts from our expert in Bismarck painting Antonio Bonomi.

Best regards.

Hi Karl. Thanks for replying.
I'm waiting to go to the Nats at Telford to get my Hood details from White Ensign, the gun barrels look stunning, going to take off the blast bags from the Trumpeter upgrade ste and use these other barrels. Doing her waterline and put her on a sea base.
Schemes are annoying for the Bismarck and Eugen, what to do :think: :x ? Arrgggh! I mighyt do her in her last scheme, though the Hakenkruetz on the deck is tempting, breaks up the general grey/teak of ships, but to match the Hood I ought to do the painted out markings.
Trumpeter are doing the Eugen soon, so I heard what a bounus.
All we need now in 1/350th are a few more Great War ship and Graf Spee (possibly my fave German ship) H.M.S Exeter, H.M.S Ajax and H.M.N.S Achillies....ooh can we have a 6th scale John Gregson as Cpt Bell too?
Now that is just wishful thinking :lol:
Love,

Welcome to the forum, greetings from England!

I see you come from near Aberystwyth, a town I have been to many times for summer holidays - and the rain!
