"sometimes puzzeling model"
I am a 67 year old and semi retired. was looking for something to pass the time. I hadn't built a model since my teens. this model was a challenge for me. I found the instructions to be very simplistic with very little detail. painting suggestions are almost non existent. had to rely completely on the pictures on the box, which by the way, showed some details not in this kit. I wish I had known this before purchasing. however, I did enjoy the build. spent many hours on it. found out I have a long way to go to be a good modeler.

"The Best Model of the Bismarck out there"
killblock623 (
This is the best model of the Bismarck that I have had the the pleasure to build. The Tamiya model, while quite good, is still beaten by this kit. It is very highly detailed with very nice molds, leaving little flash or extra plastic. What really puts it over the top for me, however, is the inclusion of rails to the kit. Now, while they are not photo-etch rails like you would see in a third-party detail kit, they are still really nice plastic railings that add an extra level of detail and realism to the kit (even with the railings being slightly large for their scale). Now, if you are planning to buy a photo-etch kit for this model they are irrelevent, but the rest of the model is still very nice. I would recommend this kit to any modeler who wants a nice, while also challenging, kit to work on. I would recommend some experience, however.

"A good model with some issues."
For the price, this is a good model. There are some fitting issues here and there, the worst being the deck to the hull, it can be done but be prepared to do some sanding to make it fit right. Details are kind of simple, and as others had stated, the instructions are a bit vague. If you are an experienced modeler you can make this into a nice looking model.


  • Keep small parts and sharp edges away from children.
  • Care should be taken when using tools and modeling knives.
  • Modeling paint should only be used by an adult in a well-ventilated area.
