    Lovely build, I have one of these in the stash, nice to see how yours came out!

    Welcome Neil, it's your models so go for what you like but painting charts and colour codes may help you if you want to get as close as possible to the real thing, anyhow glad you made it here and looking forward to seeing some of your work.

    HIJMS Mogami 1/350

    This should be a great build and fun to watch, I'm in...

    Shipping paint

    If your also putting your model stash in the container that will set the alarm bells going of in their heads and they will tear it apart looking for paint! What's the penalty for illegal goods?

    Keep up the good work Mike.

    HMS HOOD 1/400 Airfix.

    Slow progress due to watching Snooker, well that's my excuse, Aft deck dry fitted and I tried to slightly weather the blast bags, has it worked?

    Bf-109f Airfix 1/48

    Nice and clean, great build.
  9. That's really nice! A fine piece of modelling.
  10. Nice work, it's looking great and the custard nose looks good enough to eat!

    HMS HOOD 1/400 Airfix.

    Thanks Jamie, using colourcoats thinners is a must though as you already know but I'm surprised myself at how well this paint has went on, It dry's really nice and flat, I think I'll use this on all my future ship builds, I'll be doing the USS New Jersey next I think, so I'll have to work out the paints I need for this one, I've decided just to use the stand provided for the Hood as this is just a starter on ships for me but when it's finished I'm sure the kid next door will love it for his bedroom!

    HMS HOOD 1/400 Airfix.

    Hull is now painted and finished apart from attaching the props, that's going to be one of the last jobs as I'm a bit of a clumsy beggar. These things are not easy to photograph.

    Thanks for the reply Jamie, I might try the Humbrol clear cote gloss then just to give it a slight shine, ifit's too much I'll try dulling it down with their Satin Finish.
  14. As others have said a great build, looking forward to seeing the other two!
