1⁄200German Battleship Bismarck
Michael Franz most recently completed his building and painting of Trumpeter’s massive 1/200 scale German Bismarck Battleship kit. Michael was kind enough to share photographs of his model with Model Shipwrights. Along with the pictures, Michael has kindly provided a little information about what he used to construct this kit and some of his experiences of his journey to the completion. Please enjoy!
