Well is ANYONE going to do it? Bismark part work. I consider these part works the most expensive way to build a model there is.🤔👍 The die cast hull in sections I assume.👍

whether it be an extremely expensive way to build a model or any ship/car/boat/train anything - doing it via a monthly mag issue - the good side of it is it brings people into hobbies in a way that they may be able to understand, whereas people like ourselves who are already into hobbies - it tends to look expensive for what you get, but we may already have the knowledge of how to make these things. That is one way of looking at these mags.

If you decide to go for it, you could always build a model shipyard complete with r/c crane and do it right.😋

With the size my workshop will turn out to be, That is a very tempting idea😆 Part will be for the restoration of my Billings sea Queen, and part for my other hobby of model aircraft, I have a number of repair jobs due to the haulage company when we moved here to Portugal.

I wonder how many people stay the course, buy all the issues required and actually manage to build a boat in its entirety ?

You only need to look back a few years when they were doing the Spitfire. There were a number of complete kits on sale and some completed models(unflown)
