Lindberg 1/3?? Bismarck
A toy & not a model. Got one 20 years past as a present (in my family a gift of last resort for me is any military model), built it, made the latter Academy 1/350 Tirpitz
. They look nothing alike.
BTW, along with the Bismarck, I received the Lindberg Hood
. I don't hate that model. It's O.K. given the constraints at the time. However, it took the longest time to figure out that several sets of four small funnels at the end of stubby plastic sticks were actually 4 barreled "Pom-Poms".
So we've had the question below what was your thoughts on the 1st most accurate ship model, so what do you think is most INACCURATE model you ever had?
Don't get me wrong, I love Airfix and their range of 1/600 scale vessels (I think I built most of them) but my vote on the most inaccurately proportioned ship model ever was their BISMARCK and TIRPITZ. I'd be interested to hear how they got 'em so wrong.
Love you Airfix.
