Great work so far James I think I, am in the same kind of build process as yourself learning as I go from others on this site and another I started the King George V a while back but have since been doing smaller builds in 1/350 scale to try and build up my skill and techniques This will hopefully let me get back to KGV soon so I can do that to a level I will be happy with then I can get started on some of the others I have ready to go in the stash keep at it slow and steady it looks like a winner to me so far Beefy
