- You have two Tamiya Scharnhorst (SH)
and one Gneisenau (GU) kits.
But, strongly believe only enough parts to make 2 of the 3 kits!!
Didn’t you use parts for the
, as her guns were awful!!! SOME DAY!! Check see what you can actually build. .
- Started the Scharnhorst and
Gneisenau. Hesitation due to NOT
having the PE for either. Gneisenau needs
work in order to complete. Currently,
idea to build what will NOT require PE. Drill
out gun barrels, etc. NO BRASS
29 December 2009,
- Re-started all 3 ships!! IDEA is to try to make Gneisenau
with turret catapult if enough parts. Drilled out funnel, painted interior Gloss
Black, wire yardarms for bridge structure Sprayed PE with MM Primer Gray

0939 - Missing turret with holes for the catapult platform for all three
ships!!! Going to see if I can make the GU 1941 hangar.
If not, will make the with turret catapult.
3 January 2010,
- Screw it!! Too much of a
pain to make the curved hanger!!! Make
the short one prior to it being changed!!!!
