1/72 Bruno, Bismarck turret

January 24, 2022 · in Ships · 8 · 1.8K

This is the turret from Takom and wood deck. And aluminum barrels from MTW. The kit went together pretty good. The photo etched railings were very fragile and I replaced most of them with stretched sprue. Not Takom’s fault, just a big ham fisted builder! Base paint color is testors aircraft grey and gunship grey for the turret roof. Oils were used for the pin filters and dot filters too. Overall very happy with the outcome.
