Nice build going on here and good that you corrected the rear turret position. The kit hangar isn't very good unfortunately and in the two builds I've done so far of this kit I've built new hangars and a lot of other bits. See this for my stretched version that Hitler cancelled..

Somewhere on this forum there is my earlier attempt at an updated version of the basic ship but I somehow can't seem to find it...

cheers Stu- keep up the good work... :D

Fitted the deck to the hull tonight. Have been playing with the mottled camouflage on the superstructure. Not happy with the result yet. Much, much more work still to do with this kit, but at least it's now looking like a ship:

I've realised that I've spent too much time looking at pro - built modern kits of the Scharnhorst and her sister online, and that I'm not going to achieve such result with this kit, or my own shipbuilding skills at this time. I've given up trying to produce an acceptable result with the brass AA guns from my detailing set, and have reverted to those supplied with the kit. As a result, we now have some progress. 105, 37 & 20mm AA installed. Some brass railings in place and masts fitted, though not painted yet. Challenge yourself, but recognise the limits of your competence, and model building becomes much more enjoyable.
