  1. Believe me, after working on 1/700 destroyer this thing seemed to be HUGE
  2. Just a small quickie. Present for my young lad, so he can battle it with other ones on his desk Unfortunately he doesn't accept battered and dirty tanks.... With the ear-poker, as a scale refference :
  3. Its quite simple, light up a piece of sprue, let it burn for a few seconds, then dab the burning end t a piece of cardboard, wait fraction of the second and then pull. Done. This was short, by me. Here is long, by Jim Baumann: http://www.shipmodels.info/mws_forum/viewtopic.php?f=4&t=37536
  4. I see you've done some wood grain If you still can try to add veeeery diluted dark brown oil wash inside the boats, it'll bring out that internal planking i think I see on one of the pictures
  5. In short it's the oats method. On the previous page and in my Krakowiak's WIP the whole thing is shown in steps. I'm not particularly happy about this one, it's to calm for my taste, but it had to be like it, for the destroyer to move at the top speed, quid pro quo
  6. ...and the rest of junk, all in base colors before further operations :) Thanks for watching Mick
  7. Go for stretched sprue, glue the ends with PVA or some other water based thing, in case of braking or damaging, just some water on the brush and there is no trace of the mishap.....
  8. Don't you think they're a bit on the thick side? You need to paint them as well that will add thickness......
  9. Sound like a good plan. Putting those cables after installing the boats would be problematic at least
  10. Maybe add some oil on top of the brown on boats, to simulate wood grain/texture. I also have LN and every time I push away the idea of starting it, you come up with the update in your WIP..... coincident?....... or CONSPIRACY? hahaha.
  11. I'm glad to hear that, as I'm not going to change much in the water, just add the destroyer and a bit of foam around it
  12. As always with oils, there's more waiting than working so I've done some progress on the seascape... I'm not happy with it, but it'll do. It's better than the last one, so I think I'm moving in the right direction. Thanks for watching Mick
  13. With decals and some first oils... With the rest of the stuff, before shading Cheers Mick
  14. Some colors, now decals and some oils.... that'll be fun Cheers Mick
  15. Now that I'm back on this one full time, progress should speed up. Ready for final primer and then colors. Cheers Mick
