BISMARCK | Cooling water inlets – 1/100th scale | Part 1

My long term project is a static replica of the German battleship BISMARCK. This time I will focus on the cooling water inlets for the turbines.

Reconstruction of the sea chest:
Y-shaped inlets for forward and reverse speed.

Cut-out in the hull for installing the sea chest.

4mm-balsa plating and glass fibre coating.

Dry fitting of the inlet made from styrene.

Test fitting.

Adjusting the fit was done with files.

Testing the inlet: it actually works very well!

I painted the hull flat black because it is
visible from outside.
