The link that you gave is showing that it's as out of stock

Jacklin Enterprises are a south African company that markets Deagostini, Modelspace, Hachette, Eaglemoss etc...

...so I would presume that it's the same kit

Ok.. it's the one done by Amati so it is the same one Hachette put out.

For those that missed out on the Hachette one it is a stonking partwork and looks really good when done, but it is not for the faint-hearted and is a true multimedia kit with wood, Plastic and etched brass parts.

Trumpeter have a Bismarck kit out for much less in 1/200, but you can spend a lot on bringing it up to look like a proper shipyard museum model with Eduard etched sets, metal barrels etc. saying that, just out of the box trumpeter's Bismarck looks great and with the kit you also get an extra turret and internals to display too.

Definitely the same kit as Hachette put out. A superb kit too. Well worth the money.
Cheers

I expect it is the same one, maybe a few improvements as the guns look a bit sharper.
Interesting that it's a different colour scheme

The promotional photos always looks better than what you get in your kit. The interior of the Deagostini Millennium Falcon was no way as good or as detailed as what the original promotional pics showed.

It's exactly the same kit with the same colour scheme, which, when you paint the kit you have the choice of the Baltic Scheme with the black and white lines, which she had for her sea trials or for the first and only operational sailing, Operation Rheinübung.

I have it in a very big box, likewise the Hood and the Roma from Italy!
