have built the original Bismarck partwork it is a beauty, still I am tempted. It is Hachette again and does not look as detailed, metal hull? is it R/C? I'm in a quandary
ARRRRGGGHHHH.. 140 issues at £9 £1260? just talked myself out of it.

Doesnt look anywhere close to the quality of the original Bissy.

The metal hull is different though. Not entirely sure about the integrity or water tightness of the hull for full R/C use. May need some refinement and rework to be sure.

But the upper hull doesnt look very detailed as opposed to the original.

It is Hachette with the bunch of idiots at Jarrow doing the dispatch and contact point.

This looks like a redesign of the original to be easier to build and add lights and turret movement which some builders managed with the original build.

The Bismarck has been dumbed down!

It has probably reduced manufacture cost and at £9 per issue increased profit too. So starts the decline of ship building techniques!
Partwork Building is like meeting enemy action - no plan survives first contact!!

Looks like a pre-painted, screw together kit. I’m guessing not rc. Much easier to construct, so probably has a wider appeal.

It seems to be same one as the test in Germany

The build process is too simplified for me... I have done and really enjoyed the original Hachette Bismarck!

I would like to see another wooden model, like one test partwork I have seen in Japan around 2 years before. I don't remember the name of the ship but it had woodel hull, wooden first layer of planking, but the big change was in the second layer, it had aluminum sheets like the skin of spitfire. This made the hull look so realistic and it was somethin I have never seen before in wooden ship models!

I'm searching the web for it but I can't find it anywhere. If I remember correctly I have seen an advertisement in youtube. Did anyone else found this model? I would really appreciate your help if anyone has a link!!! It was a japanese warship, like IJN Akagi or Yamato.
Built: Ford Shelby Mustang, F1 Red Bull RB7, Bismarck, RC Spitfire, Millennium Falcon
Currently building: R2D2, USS Constitution, La Bretagne, Jaguar E-Type, McLaren MP4-4
Stashed: Hachette Mallard, Altaya Pacific 231, IJN Akagi

I also tend to agree. I would much prefer a wooden Bismarck/Hood ship. My choice would be the Scharnhorst.

There is always a chance that it may be released in France and therefore available via Journal france
