Hi Robert

Really impressive stuff. I had this as a kid - God knows what happened to it - wish I still had one. Keep going ...

It looks very good indeed- the neat demarkation of colours really seems to make or break a ship model. The crisp, clean colours you've achieved remind me of 'shipyard' models. The sort of thing you'd expect to see in the lobby of the company's headquarters.

I used Tamiya masking tape and vallejo matt black and copper for the hull. Looks good from a distance. The hull does not have any plank/steel plate detail. Ive been looking for a painting guide. Found this beautiful 1:96 model:
