I stopped liking this at the point the paint refused to cooperate with naval requirements. You'll push past this Sean. :thumbsup2:

Hull has been repaired but needs some touch ups. And the masking is off the decks. That didn't come out as bad but still needs little tip up jobs.

The joys of masking!

Guess every modeller run into problems like yours at some time while removing the masking tape but you did a great job so far.

The ethched parts are looking good.

But they do make a big difference. You can also see the difference between the kit 5" and the White Ensigns resin & metal replacement.
