  1. Thanks Tim I am keeping an eye on the same kit and and and Airfix 1/350th one on Ebay at the moment so fingers crossed The colour looks spot on as to me as modern RN ships do have a slight bluey tinge to the grey and good work on the radar dome those aerials must be microscopic in 1/700th
  2. Great looking HMS Dragon and the sea base looks very effective What colour did you use for the hull? And how did you find the kit as I have a fancy for building a Type 45 but I am undecided on 1/700th or 1/350th
  3. Stunning work both with the build, painting and weathering Looking forward to see it in the RFI section
  4. Haha I was right it was Wilma Deering making a brief appearance in you Eagle build thread Great work by the way I always loved the design of this ship so really looking forward to seeing more progress on this
  5. What more can I say Really looking forward to seeing this stunning work completed
  6. Thanks for the explanation on weathering the decks I have some scrap pieces that I will use your method to practice on Great to see more progress and looking forward to see the finished result
  7. Great work The shading/weathering on the turrets and blast bags are very effective A third request on how you are weathering the decks, I have an upcoming project and already have the painted the decks but look a little too clean so any tips would be appreciated
  8. Stunning work Next to the Nostromo of one of my favourite ship designs Looking forward to more progress Oh by the way would Wilma's 2nd name be Deering by any chance ???
  9. Hi Guys Need some help!!! I got this kit off Ebay and although I appreciate it is a little basic and lacks detail compared to Trumpeter kits, for £10 I was very happy As at this price it was perfect for my first ship build before moving onto something more complex (maybe a Trumpeter Arleigh Burke or a Type 23) All was going surprising well until I came to apply the decals, they are absolutely awful and apart from just about managing to get the hull numbers on the rest disintegrated But as I think I have done quite a decent job on this model I am really reluctant to consign it to the unfinished stash So I thought about my options and this is were I need some help 1. I thought I would be able to get some after market decals but it appears that there are no specific set available for the Arleigh Burke class unless anyone knows anything different? 2 . Hawk Graphics do a of decals for the Oliver Hazard Perry class which appear I could use some of the decals from this sheet any thoughts? http://www.hawk-graphics.com/images/decal_images/3523_perry_long_hull.jpg 3 . I could try and purchase a "spare" set of decals from Trumpeter for their Arleigh Burke but if I go this route has anyone tried ordering spares/decals from Trumpeter and had any success? 4. The last option is to buy a Trumpreter Arleigh Burke kit and scan in the decal sheet and print my own decals, I do understand the basics of this and the materials I need but has anyone got any advise or tips on printing their own decals? Thanks in advance for any help Cheers Ian
  10. Wow Very nice the shading on the hull looks really effective I have the USS Momsen on my bench at the moment and if I can get mine to look even 1/2 as good as yours I would be very happy
  11. Oh very nice work the Falcon 3d parts look amazing Along with the Nostromo one of my favourite spaceship designs Great work
  12. Amazing work and I cannot wait to see the final reveal You have really captured the look of the movie

    Ajax (Scout SV)

    Thanks Das Abteilung Very interesting about the CR2 and the issue with ammo storage and the smoothbore gun So unless there is a major re-design and of course the prohibitive cost with that, I guess the only option is that the CR2 will have to continue with a rifled main gun for the foreseeable future albeit with other upgrades. Unless of course you can drop an Abrams or Leopard turret straight in so anyone for a Challbrams or Challeopard With regards the Ajax it will be interesting to see what defensive aids will be available with project Icarus and which system(s)they will use. Reading up on the US Army they seems to be trialling several different options and even then may be using different systems depending on the vehicle it will be mounted on. However I would imagine with all the electronic wizardry the Ajax family will have that integrating any new software and the hardware would have been included in the design from the outset (hence the mystery mounts and bits and bobs or am I expecting too much ?) Cheers Ian
