Quick question .... Please Don' turn this into another arguement Lol.

On the official build I notice there is another section where there is no option for False guns. There are two area's where the entry ports are but what is the other section on the starboard(right) side which is 3 ribs and 2 deck big. Is this the optional opening.


On the bench

1/350 Revell Tirpitz Platinum Edition (Pontos PE and Wooden deck) plus extra Eduard PE set and extra MK1 door sets.

Correct, its the optional Cutaway opening which spans two decks and will contain full gun kits and figs etc.

Hi Tomick,

Do you know if this optional cutaway will include such detail as planking? Or will it have to be drawn on as in the other opening. You see I notice in your official build, we are fitting the middle deck, whilst the lower is still bare ply. If there is no deck detail it may very well influence many of the less experienced modellers not to go with the gun deck opening which would be a shame. It's just that I, like many others would like to know what we are getting. That way we can make any extra additions such as wood planking(if they are not included in the build) before the area becomes inaccessible.

I think the cutout section is big enough for added detail, especially if you have a wood lathe and are able to turn some doweling for the supports described on the link below.

I Totally Agree with Dontshootme on this, I am now lead to believe you draw the planking on the cutaway deck!!! I still have'nt started the build yet so its interesting to see what other people are getting upto, As for the cross section, Thats what I intend to do just for the detail, (Its under the bench!) so at the moment I am undecided about the cutaway, anyway time will tell as and when I start the build !!! LOL
Happy Building, Russ

I've not yet seen any info on the make-up of the Cutaway section other than being aware it is to be a diorama section built outside of the model, and will be inserted into the vacant area being created.

The lower deck is bereft of planking because this deck will not be visible from the outside once the hull planking is complete.

The middle deck Entry Port area (both sides of the ship) is visible, which is why planking has been simulated in this area, drawn-on decking is common place in model ship kits, and because the entry port area is very small simulated decking should be no detrement to the build, but if you wish there is no reason why this area cannot be decked with actual planks, though its a pointless excercise to plank the entire middle deck because it won't be visible other than the entry port area.

Hi Tomick,

Many thanks for you reply. I suppose my main concern was the deck bits visible on the open gun deck option. This has now been resolved with the diorama which seems to be a great idea. If the deck visible from the entry ports can be simulated realistically (I didn't know it was common practise)then I will give it a go before trying wood planking.

Cheers, Jimmy
