I'm usually a car guy, but I've always loved naval warships, especially battleships. I was at Hobby Lobby last year and found these 1/1200 kits for the Bismarck and the Enterprise. I love capturing as much detail as I can in small kits so I snagged them up.

I've slowly been working on the Bismarck and this is what I've got.

This was after spraying the major parts.




I masked off the ship and spray painted the black and white camo on. After that I went back and have slowly been working my way back hand painting the deck.




This weekend I will begin the detail spraying of the hull (waterline and camo).

Thanks for looking :wave:

Looking forward to seeing more. What do you think of the Bismarck kit?
I love it, but I don't have any other model ships to compare it too. I have found a few little inaccuracies to the real ship from my research (I'm not following the painting guide with the model, I'm looking up pictures and other models), but the ones I have found are not big deals to me.

Thank you for the comments! I got a tiny bit more work done on her last night. I'm hoping to make a lot more progress this weekend though.

Thanks for the compliments!

Made a little more progress...



The end seems so close, but there is a great deal of tedious work to be done still. I found a great site with lots of up close pictures of the Bismarck:

I will be going through and adding all the portholes as well as adding the rigging and a couple flags.

Looking really nice there and I must say you picked a pretty small kit to start with.. but from your other posts you seem to like the intricate detail work. By the way, where do you mount the 429 side oiler?

And a few more pictures...






Here's the ship with a quarter for size reference along with a couple Japanese 1/2500 Bismarck ships.


Thanks for looking :wave:
