    Very impressive it is too.
  8. Revell 1/700 HMS Kipling

    I have one in my stash plus a few add-on bits and pieces. You may have just encouraged me to move it closer to the top of the 'next project' list. Cheers
  9. Thanks for all the comments everyone, nearly done with building things now. After finishing all the major parts a couple of weeks ago, I've built up all the details. OOB the kit has around 520 parts, I've only used about 140 of those, but added around 1900 more from WEM, Shapeways, L'Arsenal, Lion Roar and scratched, after taking the photos I realised I should have included a ruler in shot as most of this stuff is tiny. Fore mast and main mast both replaced with brass rod and WEM details. Light AA armament details, single and twin 20mm and searchlights Loads of bits, cable reels, paravanes, accomodation ladders etc etc: Boat/Aircraft cranes, WEM with lots of extra details Radar aerials Bridge fittings and armament directors Main armament directors I've also just finished the ships boats and ventilators, so it's almost time to start painting and masking the thing.

    A more positive outlook would be that it leaves more time to get the top looking right and the water looking its best ..... Kev
  11. Tamiya 1:350 KGV

    Thanks for the advise. I think I'll pick up a wooden deck for it. And....er......the pointy end is the...er....front?.........Right?
  12. I've got to say for pocket money prices this is a really detailed kit I'm really enjoying it, I must have the one good fitting kit airfix made of it because I've got to say so far it's been a perfect fit no problems at all I wonder if there is a bigger than 1/72 model of this kit.

    Some very nice work going on here Kev.
  14. Vosper 72' 6" MTB

    Slow steps forward as I try to figure out what I'm doing.... Fixed the watertight bulkheads either side of the midships full tanks I've had to temporarily had to fix an I beam to spread the hull which was pulling in Sorting the floor iwo of the midships accommodation The wheelhouse 'cockpit' had to go... No way to access the lower level, plus the sides are angled in to ease extraction from mould. The hatched area should not be there.... Sides fitted, remember the way I scribed the hull bulkheads. Similar concept here for the floor Giving You can see the access now to deck below Side of the wheelhouse in place Trying to decide where / how to cut away side / deck to show radio room behind the dark hole above and the wardroom between the wheelhouse and the side...... Thanks for looking in Kev

    That's a workshop setup to be proud of. I'm enjoying your threads and looking forward to the next instalment.

    When you think about it, waterline depictions of submarines has potential for some very lazy modelling indeed...
  17. Revell 1/400 Queen Mary 2

    How is the build getting along Markie? You have been doing a great job of turning an ugly duckling into a beautiful swan. I have this kit in my stash after spending an age trying to get hold of one without spending silly money. Still have my Titanic to finish and a couple of planes. Hope to start it next year.
  18. HMS Abercrombie

  19. USS Lexington CV-2 1/700 Meng Models

    Good question! The photo I used to model the wake shows only a little smoke coming from the stack. I wasn't going to try and replicate that and I don't do Photoshop Cheers!
  20. Some cracking neat work on display here. Watching with great interest. Rob
  21. HMS Abercrombie

    Beefy - this slipped me by. I didn't realise this was a WWII combatant. Looks great - looking forward to seeing the colour scheme. I'm watching with interest Rob
