These things are a rip-off. As already mentioned, it is very rare for all of the issues to be released, as people either gradually lose interest or realise that they are going to be bankrupted in the long run. I started a couple of these things with my kids in the past - I believe one was a mineral collection - You can by it in-store for three weeks or so, then you are forced to take out a subscription as the newsagents discontinue it.

You can still pick up the original kit for a fraction of the price and it's a real kit not a screw in sight as I sold mine a few years back a I have regretted ever since.

I’ve started on it and so far it’s got me a bit interested in the BIG GERMAN BRUTE, it will be a fair size when it is built but inm still waiting on postie with the next issues from hachette.
So while I’m waiting I’ve convinced the wife to buy me the TAmiya 1,350 version but I’m gonna need some help with the aftermarket stuff so whoever has built this monster can you advise me on where I can get the extras (PE mainly

Hi guys I got the pics put up of the new Hachette ( or older ) Bismarck. I have subscribed so will cost me over a thousand when complete
Issue 1 you get the front decking with few little bits to put on plus a bow piece hull ( metal ) and the next issue you get "Anton " the first of the 4 turrets with 38cm cannon
This turret is all motorised but you get the motors and wiring. I am a bit dubious of them asking to use superglue for some parts but I can see the fixing of such pieces are permanent ( no differant to modelling with PE )
It seems a slow way to build the model but I'm surprised that in 145 issues they can cover Bismarcks short life span
Enjoy pics

My concerns with this weekly edition is that I have seen you tube Wayne’s models building this kit and yet I have only received the first two copies ( monthly subscription) they have taken the payments but I’m still waiting for the next monthly edition
Hachette have no mention of when their next monthly subscription is out.
Now although this is in 1/200 scale I’m now thinking should I cancel as I’ve now got the 1/350 Tamiya version and I’ve spent extra on the PE and extras as well.
I do like the dea of the mechanical parts of the idea behind this subscription but I suppose I’ll just have to wait a bit longer
