Great work so far. Iceman and I have teamed up our Bismarcks back in 2010 and our arrangements though slightly different worked very well for both of us. For Iceman he was more aggressive and used his dual sidemounts for that purpose. I more or less used mine defensively and ended up using my stern sidemount and single stern gun offensively and defensively. We both had a Death Y setup that is his D turret was slightly pointing away from the stern center line to port. He had a Dual setup there. I did the same but with a single cannon. I used my C turret as a stern sidemount but angled way back to keep it in line with the stern quadrants leading edge . It was a very short range steep down angle. Both of these cannons worked great against the hungry Sodaks and North Carolinas. The Dual sidemounts were great at opening up major holes on the enemy. The Bismarck is a great ship for options and flexibility. My Bismarck has a similiar mount to yours but larger to accomodate the 970 Motor. When you do screw the motor to the mount make sure you have a space between the front of motor and the wood plate to allow air to flow into the front of the motor. It an get very hot there . You can use sections of rubber or wood as long as it can't melt. I love that deck kit. Wish I had one in my Bismarck and Tirpitz.
