Frustrating I know, but the Bismarck hull wasn't finished until near the end of the series. On the plus side, I could still work on the guns while I try to find time to plank the hull......

You'll find with the parts that sometimes you seem to get quite a lot, and sometimes it looks quite thin. Swings and roundabouts, but you only remember the skimpy issues (bit like the dancing girls outfits :laughing-rolling: ). You do get the complete model in the promised 140 issues though.

I agree.

All I have to do is look at my magnificent Bismarck sitting in the glass cabinet to know it is most certainly worth the odd frustration or ten!

Yes we do get the completed model in 140 issues. And the last three issues are always jam packed with instructions.

Look at the bright side, issue 64 moore bits for the top, deckplanking and bits to do the 5 rocket launchers and still no bits for the hull. :angry-banghead:

I agree with you, very frustating and I am building the static version but glued the decks on hoping of a logically building sequence, did not build the bismark but I thing by about issue 35/40 about 80% of the hull was done, here it is not even half of it.
