The Airfix sink the Bismark waterline model kit is an extraordinary build also the price for the product is extremeley cheap for six ships however nothings perfect some of the the guns wouldn't fit in the holes so I had to get my pen nife to make tehm more circular but that was not a problem to me.

Having had these kits 'first time around' in the 1970s, I was delighted to see them re-issued. Even more so with the price which represents excellent value. They may need a bit of work to assemble but it's effort well spent. As an added bonus the set offers many conversion possibilities - for example Hood can be hacked about to become Glorious of Repulse and Suffolk to other 'County' class ships.

I remembered these kits from the 1970s, and trying to eke out my pocket money to buy them one at a time. I bought the set for nostalgia's sake, and spent a few happy hours building the kits. Given the age of the moulds and the technology of the time, the kits are not quite up to current standards. Nevertheless, all of them are fair to good, but it takes a fair bit of work to assemble Hood. In my set, the main hull was badly warped and took some time to straighten to an acceptable shape.

Hence the three stars.

That's it in a sentence! Every single ship in this scale that Airfix ever made! I think the original moulds may date from the 1970's and that does show in the current version, with a little flash becoming evident on some of the parts. There's not too much, though, and a quick scrape with a modelling knife cleans it all up. The detail here isn't quite as good as with some far more expensive models, but at the price is more than adequate and allows rivet counters room to add their own "thing" to each model. There's a very good painting guide included, but you will need to buy your own paints and glue. Overall, fun to build and even on a basic level these look great on display. Don't expect them to be huge, though, because in this scale the largest vessel is only about 7 inches, or 18 Cm long.

This is a 5 star set, if you buy it at the correct price. There are several online model stores still selling this set for £20 plus postage, so there is no need to be extorted simply because the line is currently discontinued. I understand that Airfix are in the process of relocating and retooling, so quite a few of their kits have been suspended. Some have already been improved.

Be aware that this set does not come with any paint, like you would get with gift sets and starter sets.

These are all the 1:1200 WW2 ships that Airfix have made, but other manufacturers have made a few more.

Please to see these additional models in 1/1200 scale, complement to my collection of world war two ships, would like to see more destroyers and smaller ships.
