    Thank you, have managed a few hours on the build during the week, which i dont normally do, have made a mock up of the hanger doors, in the open position, and sorting out the hanger lighting, photos to be posted I have also sourced the vent grills that fit on the curved bit of the superstructure there are 12 each side, so i never made any attempt to made them NOT MY PHOTO's

    Good evening everyone I have an update it took a bit longer than anticipated, but im happy with it so far we left her in a bit of a sad state last weekend, when I realised that i had not read the plans properly, and as a result never took the superstructure in at the right place new infills panels and new templates for the platforms made the hanger roof is still removeable another primer coat to find bits thet require more work, LOL (lots of that)
  10. how you doing with the conversion Mike, LOL have you finished it yet
  11. Just love the weathering
  12. HMS Fife by Kevin - Fleetscale - 1/72

    Good evening everyone, are you sitting comfortably? i want to tell you a story...... once upon a time, well the last couple of days made a full top for the after smoke stack been sanding and cleaning joints for quite a while now and decided to give the superstructure a base coat, to see what needs to have more attention paid to it the other reason for this is that there are now bits that need to be added, like platforms etc and so i knew everywhere pior to that point will have had a least one coat of primer the hanger roof needed to have to extension added, simple enough but they never reached the sides as if they were to small, infact what this did was bring to light a mistake of my making when I made the superstructure out of MDF this is when I should have spotted the error this what i ended up with, although i never took a photo at the time i have cut a section out to the correct size this is where the error occured, this plaform is in the correct position, but i had to cut some of it off to sit flush and the correct width from the superstructure where the arrows are is where the mistake was made, the dotted lines are below the platform (and not ignored by me), this is the amount of hull i had to cut out and the amount off platform that had to be removed this is the only photo i can find to show you what i mean (just above the red vent) it is flush with the hanger roof extention this is the state of play until this friday

    Nice to have you following, i was a Jacky Dusty on there, progress has gone backwards this weekend, i have spent hours cleaning down the after superstructure, ready for a primer coat, which went on very well, BUT highlighted the fact that i have misread the plans and need to do some remedial work, will post pictures later
  14. As for up for it, Of course you are
  15. will be following with interest Mike, but wont everything else be out, like hatches and openings, unless you intend to fill them in and resize everything,
