    Its a partwork kit from hatchette publishing in the UK. Available here in Oz through bissett magazines.
    The info and instruction books that come with each issue have the Amati emblem on them.

    I Think I read somewhere that Amati were going to release it as a kit, but don't hold me to it.

    I guess your best port of call RabidAlien,would be to email Hatchette and see if they can line you up with a U.S distributor.

    Oh and as a footnote, I know Hatchette have released a lancaster in partwork form, I emailed to find out if it was to be released here in Oz and they got back to me and said to contact Bissett which I've yet to do.

    cheers

    Holy smokes man, that's friggin' awesome! I'm curious too whether this is a kit or, if not, what your reference sources are. Details, Pete! And more pics as you go please.

    Looks great. Looks like you strip planked the hull, how hard was that?
    Now you just have to hope some Brits don't come along and sink her on her maiden voyage;)

    Beautiful! That's going to be one impressive display piece once finsihed!
    RA, if you're really interested in ship kits, then two places to contact might have, or direct you to, kits of the Bismark. They aren't cheap, but work out a lot less than buying the parts via the weekly/monthly magazine route, something in the region of a 6th of the cost.
    The comapnies are both UK based, with the first being an Italian parent company I believe.
