First ever post on this forum so here goes... This is my attempt at the 1:600 HMS Iron Duke released many moons ago. The kit itself was a nightmare (to be expected given the age). Flash was off the charts, pieces wouldn't fit together without some serious filing/cutting/total removal of parts. I admit I made quite a few mistakes trying to glue things together (for example some of the boats are rather squint...) but the whole purpose of building this was to get some practice at ship modelling, being an aircraft modeller normally. I used an artwox wooden deck and vallejo paints plus pastels for weathering. Any constructive criticism would be gladly welcomed, my next build will be Trumpeters 1:350 HMS Dreadnought from 1915 in honour of my great grandfather who served aboard her during World War I.
