Awesome build and way cool that its on display. You did wonders. Noticed you stayed with the printed anchor chain - personal preferences?

The printed chain was a Photoshop experiment; it didn't come with the kit. But I like the way it looks on the model. The metal chains that are available have the wrong kinds of links. This is paper but it's more accurate.

The chains in the attached j-peg are 6-7/8" long in 1/200 scale. You're welcome to use them.

I did. I had the 1/4" acrylic panels cut for me by a plastics shop. I built the base and assembled the cover. (It actually required two of us.)

The case was an expensive project--about five times the cost of the ship. But my wife said, "It's an heirloom; do it right." I love my wife.

Model Contest

I took my GPM Bismarck and four paper aircraft to a regional scale model contest in Oshkosh today. Everyone there was asked to vote for seven models out of some 300 entries. The top seven vote getters would each receive a plaque. There were some really impressive plastic models there. I entered the only paper mnodels--Halinski Wildcat, P-39, and Hurricane, and Modelcard "Vought Vindicator."

My Bismarck was one of the top seven. All those amazing plastic models and my paper model Bismarck takes a plaque -- and the only one in the "Watercraft" category.

It was a good day.

Congratulations on a very well deserved plaque, David!!

My head is playing with the idea of building this kit... One year it took for you... Maybe 2 for me?

Thank you for keep on sharing the "Adventures of the Paper Bismarck".

(You are more than welcome to take it to our Model Fiesta in San Antonio, TX, February 2016)
