Here is an image of Dave Porter's SOB build of the popular 1/350 scale Bismarck by Tamiya. The kit was finished in Tamiya colors. It’s an old kit from the late seventies but it still stands up as a quality item.

Nice one. Now I have the Johnny Horton song stuck in my head.

In May of 1941 the war had just begun
The Germans had the biggest ship
that had the biggest guns
The Bismarck was the fastest ship
that ever sailed the sea
On her decks were guns as big as steers
and shells as big as trees

Out of the cold and foggy night
came the British ship the Hood
And every British seaman he knew and understood
They had to sink the Bismarck, the terror of the sea
Stop those guns as big as steers
and those shells as big as trees

We'll find the German battleship
that's makin' such a fuss
We gotta sink the Bismarck cause
the world depends on us
Yeah hit the decks a runnin' boys
and spin those guns around
When we find the Bismarck, we gotta cut her down

[acoustic guitar refrain]

The Hood found the Bismarck and on that fatal day
The Bismarck started firing fifteen miles away
"We gotta sink the Bismarck," was the battle sound
But when the smoke had cleared away
the mighty Hood went down

For six long days and weary nights
they tried to find her trail
Churchill told the people put every ship asail
Cause somewhere on that ocean
I know she's gotta be
We gotta sink the Bismarck to the bottom of the sea
We'll find the German battleship...

[acoustic guitar refrain]

The fog was gone the seventh day
and they saw the morning sun
Ten hours away from homeland
the Bismarck made its run
The Admiral of the British fleet
said turn those bows around
We found that German battleship
and we're gonna cut her down

The British guns were aimed
and the shells were coming fast
The first shell hit the Bismarck,
they knew she couldn't last
That mighty German battleship is just a memory
"Sink the Bismarck" was the battle cry
that shook the seven seas

We found the German battleship
t'was makin' such a fuss
We had to sink the Bismarck
cause the world depends on us
We hit the deck a runnin'
and we and spun those guns around
Yeah we found the mighty Bismarck
and then we cut her down
We found the German battleship...
