  1. OK here goes if at anchor then no or very little white so a dark blue all round with just a hint of a breaking wave and lots of shine on still water pacific west coast SAN FRAN Bay Malta Mediterranean HTH looking the part with all those little details Jon. Stay Safe beefy
  2. Agree joint thread but be careful you do not mix the parts up or it will be a WTF not a WHIFF build of both. Stay Safe beefy
  3. What a great end result and some excellent weathering. Stay Safe beefy
  4. Well slow progress with any build at the minute rather busy around the beefy household getting stuff ready for our son's wedding on Friday fourth time of trying in the last 18 month. Making up the rear platform ready for the PE plates also making up the main turrets and adding blast bags need shaping up and put some bulkhead in to stop the light bleed through the barbettes which will need some scrap PE adding to solve the mis-shaped bulkheads.

  5. They do look good but make sure you let them stand in some sunlight for a day or so and them give them a good wash down I always find that the release agents come out after standing on a window ledge or you could find it seeping out from under your coat of paint if not cleaned and cured correctly. looking good so far Stay Safe beefy
  6. Great job so far there Guy looking forward to seeing it painted up. Stay Safe beefy
  7. Off to a great start Jon will try and follow and keep up with this one. Stay Safe beefy
  8. This has turned out great Jon you made the PE look easy and great skill soldering it cracking job all round. Stay Safe beefy
  9. Great job Mick I like the finish on the nose sonar domes and your weathering is it all oils or a mix of paint and oils cracking finish all round. Stay Safe beefy
  10. Amazing detail as usual John can’t wait to see you paint this one. Stay Safe beefy
  11. Sam not sure if you remember I started mine about a year ago and then it got shelved for other projects you have just reminded me I need to get my finger out and get the current projects done and complete this one Cheers beefy
  12. Yes I think most of us ship builders can relate to that it is looking rather good though nearly there. Stay Safe beefy
  13. Looks like you really enjoying this one Guy really neat work. Stay Safe beefy
  14. Evening Jeff looks like your off to a flyer here will follow along always like a good history lesson along the way. Stay Safe beefy
  15. Hi Andy I completed this kit last year it only took my 5 years. but I did have a break in between stints of building it I used the WEM PE set with it so I was trying to build up my skill level with that stuff. As most Tamiya kits it is a great model but has potential for improvement's it just depends on how far you want to go with it make a start on it in the WIP and I am sure you will get lots of help and advice good luck. Stay Safe beefy
  16. Very nice effect with the rust tones as for dust have you looked at MIG pigments or for old school pastel chalks ground down I get cheap chalk sticks from an art shop or The Works, Wilko, The Range you get the idea kids make a mess shops. Stay Safe beefy
  17. So after some little fiddly stuff got stuck together we end up with these the kit offering and the WEM PE it has the extendable sections. Also made a start on the hull paint black under coat which gives me the boot line and the lower hull to show some weathering i have used desert yellow and Israeli sand from Vallejo must of which will not be seen. Stay Safe beefy
  18. Thanks for that info Ned that is what I was hoping for as an answer the reason being that I am using the Exeter PE sets which look a lot better than the kit offering so the PE one will be built up tomorrow night. Stay Safe beefy
  19. Not a nice thing to hear that Kev but at least you are still building something even if it is a French rust bucket and you just know all the reprobate's will support you along the way I suppose a pigeon and nest will be out of the question with the Citroen. Stay Safe beefy
  20. well this is building up really well watch you do not catch cold with all that frame work one sneeze and it could be disaster. Stay Safe beefy
  21. Now that is where you have been hiding it might take a while to catch up with this one now. Stay Safe beefy
  22. So nice to see you building something at least as for the rust going from your recent LCM build this should be very light weathering. Will enjoy this one. Stay Safe beefy
  23. Been looking at the instructions for the aircraft catapult do any of you fine gentlemen know if these would be a standard fit for all RN cruisers or would they be different for each ship. Stay Safe beefy
  24. There is a lot of detail coming out now looking very sharp there Guy. Stay Safe beefy
  25. Put a coat of primer on the hull to see where it needs any clean up and added more rails and ladders to the aft structure I think this is the wardroom area. Stay Safe beefy
