Project: 1944 Tirpitz
1:350 Tirpitz (Mini Hobby Models 80602)

Treehugger Have you given any thought to how accurate/authentic the details are? I don't know myself though I do get an impression from looking at your photos which is nice, but I can imagine there are some issue with cheaper kits. I couldn't find any review of this kit on scalemates. Still, this kit is supposedly new mold from 2000 if I am to believe Scalemates. If at least the general surfaces were accurate enough, one could maybe entertain the notion of adding details to it in some sensible way.

I suggest adding some basic rigging of wire at the end, which should be a nice addition.

Norbert Steffens gosh...when I look closer at the "details" there are no at all... Looks like a kit from the early years of modelling.....You are courageous to try this kit......

Treehugger I started on a similar cheap kit and it wasn't too bad, I am having fun with it. (I think it was the mini hobby Hind-D 1:48 )

Havoc Havco Hi @treehugger. Basically the detail isn't good, more like awful I think. You must sand it much harder, and there's much gap between fitting which you must fill it with putty.
It comes with no PE and decals. Anyway, I wouldn't recommend if you looking for details.

Otherwise, the price is about $15 include shipping. Pretty cheap for 1/350 scale battle ship. I just buy it for learning, in order to make Tirpitz from Revell.

NB: I will post more photos about details if you interested

Havoc Havco Well, based on small research, I just realized that this kit is the copy of 2005 Tamiya DKM TIRPITZ with some additional changes:

1. There's some parts to make this kit runs automatically by battery-powered, meanwhile the Tamiya is not.
2. The nameplate and stand is different.
3. The lower and upper hull is separated, meanwhile the Tamiya Tirpitz's hull is joined.
4. The manual books isn't so detail, compared to Tamiya's manual.
5. No Kriegsmarine's flag decal (Tamiya has it)

Havoc Havco 6. This kit has two lower hull options; full hull and waterline

Patrick Hagelstein Well, what needs improvement according to yourself? If so, we can help you from there.
14. July at 17:49:12
Havoc Havco Well, for assembly, basically I think I still lack of skill about cutting, gluing, and removing the seam lines. About painting, I still got problem in technique and mixing color with thinner
14. July at 18:08:25
Chris Greathouse I've built 40+ vehicles and what I've found is just doing it, (and possibly messing up) is the quickest way I've learned. I still have a heck of a time with paint ratios... And #1, just have fun and build...
14. July at 19:09:33
Havoc Havco @Chris yes that's true. Technically, learning by doing is one of the good way. But I don't know if the way I do is a good or not. Anyway, 40+ vehicles you built is so amazing. Me, just done 5 kits outside Gunpla/Gundam.
