    How lucky am I.
    After a little research I discovered these and the warspite were all there when the Bismarck was sunk, obviously you all know I built the warspite in a dio, I'm now toying with the idea of doing a dio with these 3 in it.

    The Bismark must be a rerelease of an older kit as there is a battery box moulded in the bottom of the hull and 2 propshafts with propellers but no mention of any of this in the instructions.
    I imagine this was like the Airfix 1/12 Bentley 4.5 supercharged which was originally sold to be motorised but they have removed it on the new release but you can still see the remnants of it in the kit.

    Incidentally the props looks really good quality.
