Hi Popeye

Click on my profile and send me an e-mail to my e-mail address.

I'll follow up with the pics.

The add-on kits, there are 2 of them, are coming from Pontos.

This is the one that should be the crowning glory. I saw that Micro-Mark had it for $319.95 and they detail kit for $219.95 and the upgrade for 29.95. With shipping, the kit is almost $600 and 53 inches long. Being longer and costing $100.00 more, she should really be something. Looking foward to seeing this one as it come along.
Happy modeling,
Gary Maple

Hi Gary
The Bismarck came from MicroMark, along with the detail kit that they offered. For the Missouri, I decided to use the Pontos add-on kit. I'm gonna start another post for the Missouri, in the process of taking pictures today.

I added some of the stairs to the ship. You can also see the quality of the railings supplied in the PE kit

that is just an incredible amount of work and detail. This is a model that you surely should be proud of. Can't wait to see what you dive into next.

Thanks Mike

Plastic modeling is certainly different thank wooden modeling. I have done both.

I enjoy the detail of the plastic ships and the brass detail that are available.

You might also check out my Missouri build (also in the forum). I told Donnie that I would put up a full detailed build of the ship. So far, it's all there.

Thanks again
