    BPBC 466-MTB

    OK so time to start my next project and wanting to give my eyes a rest from 1/350 so this will be the Coastal Craft kit of the British Power Boat Company 71ft 6in motor torpedo boat-466 in 1/72 scale which was lost in a fatal accident at Ostend harbour in February 1945 This will be my first resin kit so slow learning curve expected only ever used resin as stowage on my amour builds in the past.I had been thinking of jumping straight in with my new purchase of the Fairmile D but when I had a good look in the box I thought Nah go for the little one first So starting to look at all the parts and making sure I have read all the instructions first which is totally new to me There is a lot of stuff in this little box and it is heavy when you compare to a standard kit Colour scheme this should be a challenge to paint and by the way I will be using the AKAH set from Coastal Craft to paint this Off to read the instructions now this may take a while Beefy

    BPBC 466-MTB

    With a bit of luck more like no pressure then Double negative it could read as start stopping other builds Anyway I have to have something to keep me busy while the silicone is drying out So with that gentle prod I will get on with this one for now Base coat of colour and starting to build up the wave shapes want to get it something like the photo that Kev posted earlier in this build. keeping the hull clean of excess sealer and paint with the cling film not just used for wrapping your sandwich up And when dry it placed in position now for a coat or two of the Making Waves and to finish off the wave shape and paint beefy

  23. Well making headway with a couple of builds so decided to start on this oldie goldie and will be adding the Atlantic Models PE set something about these type of WW2 destroyers that just makes me want to build them Oh and MTB,s as well You can see from the price tag how old this kit is £1.99 I wish they where that price now. Got this kit given to me by a good friend a few year ago the hull molding is way to deep for the platting and nearly non existent for the raised parts oh well here goes Port holes starting to be drilled out before the plating is toned down And the very full PE sheet from Peter hall and you can see the difference of the hull sides so far no illusion I have two kits and PE to do another version later told you I liked these type of ships beefy

    HMS Trafalgar Battle Class

    Well plenty for you to choose from just look at these for comparison Looking at the bridge it will need some re-shaping to much of an angle compared to Scorpion and kelly they both show a much more vertical face to the bridge as do the Atlantic instructions So will have to try my hand at a bit of re-construction of the bridge beefy
  25. Interesting and very Gerry Anderson beefy
