Hi Paul

 Thankyou very much for your compliment i must admit though you are a little too kind concerning the Tirpitz model the paint scheme she is wearing in this film disguises the lack of detail very cleverly.if you would like to see some of my other vids concerning model ships visit my you tube page   some are good others naff you will have to make up your own mind. i am currently working on a fleetscale bismarck so my film experiments will take a back seat. i will however be making a few more vids when its built.

here you go this may inspire you,ive gone all period with the photo,s.didnt realise you were making such a detailed build it will be nice to see some pic, build is just a broad representation in stand off scale as you can see but i have a lot of detailing to do.

25/11/2008 16:39:00

24/11/2008 22:11:00

Make your own contribution to the Website

We welcome well written contributions from Website members on almost any aspect of Model Boating with a particular emphasis on practical hints, tips, experience and builds.

In order to maintain a consistent standard and format, all suggestions should first be sent to me by Personal Message for approval in principle. Only a very limited amount of time is available for editing contributions into a suitable format for placing on the website so it is important that the material is well presented, lucid and free from obvious spelling errors. I think it goes without saying that contributions should be illustrated by appropriate photos. I shall be happy to give advice on this.

The Member Contribution area offers space for short informative mini articles which would not normally find a place in Model Boats magazine. It is an opportunity for Website Members to freely share their  expertise and experience but I am afraid that virtue is its own reward as there is no budget to offer more material recompense!

I look forward to receiving your suggestions.
