Bismarck/HMV/1:250

I have been building this ship for more than two and half years. Unlike IJN ship, camo paint scheme of the ship caught my attention when I saw the kit at moduni for the first time then I made a snap decision to purchase it.
This kit said to be consisted of about 7000 parts though actually I didnít count it myself.
The reason why I havenít finished the ship yet is that what I satisfied with the build according to my then standard later became flaw that disappointed me
But my motto is to complete any kits once I started so today I just register this thread here as a reminder so that I will not forget about this ship and I can build it on and off basis until finish someday.

I don't notice any flaws? Keep this up though, and you're going to have more simultaneous builds than I've got going :D

Glad to have another of your build threads active, Master Yu.

This one looks entirely beautiful to me.

Wow. Please do continue this YuG. Whatever flaws you see are invisible to my eyes. Yet another stunning build.

Ok Yu it's rubbish trouble is I have only seen 2 builds that equal or possibly surpass it by the way he is not satisfied as yet.

A glorious build Yu. .

Thanks all for your kind words that inspires confidence in me. Iíll continue to build this ship (How simple molded I am:()

Jim, When it comes to inconstancy Iím sure I got you since I have some more in-the-middle projects:D

Lala and barry, you always give me good advice. Iíll shut an eye to see my model ĎKeep your eyes wide open when you see fellow modelerís work, half shut when you see your owní

Actually many of flaws are on the bottom and the underwater hull so I avoided taking close up photos of those sections:(

I know people they tell me I criticize my model too much... I see things as poor but other people they say no that is okay!

Lala, yes, we modelers are relentlessly caustic critic of our own model so there is a possibility to improve our skill

Jim, here you are
1. 1/250 carrier based air craft. I need to design seat and instrument panel and to make canopy
2. Just stopped. No reason
3. I like this kit's design very much but in the middle of build suddenly I realized glossy photo copy paper looks cheap and was looking for better glossy paper desperately but I wasn't able to find out any.... then almost one year past....:(

Can you beat that?:D
