David Koopman came to the 2019 US IPMS National Convention in Chattanooga, Tennessee from neighboring South Carolina. This is David's build of the Admiral Scheer, made from the Italeri 1:720 scale kit. He used Model Master acrylic paints to
portray the
Scheer in her Neutrality Patrol during the Spanish Civil War. He made all of the decals that were used in the build. Third party railing and inclined ladders were added. Scratch-built items include the mast/spar unit off the stack, and bow &
stern staffs. Rigging was done with a combination of nylon, lycra and metal thread. .David added extra thickness to the seascape base so that he could show the boot strap. Finally, he opened up the catapult and added extra bracing to the floatplane.
