    Built up some more of the PE. Finding its going together very well. I've built up the catapult there's quite a bit of detail in it it has several ribs and some structure that gets covered up with the top panels(see pic) Does anybody know what these panels were? I assume they were removable pannels that would be removed when launching the sea plane. I might have mine off so the details are visible I might try make it with the sea plane in the launching position

    you are correctI made a mistake they are supposed to be the same screws on each side. Outward turning I think. Managed to pop them off without too much trouble. PE arrived so made a start on that. It's very tricky much harder than I expected. One thing I'm definitely going to do is narrow down the boot stripe a bit as I feel it's a bit too thick. At the moment This 1st first ship model and 3rd model since I started this hobby.

    The hull needed some filling along the bottom as the two halves were not level. Other than that the fit is good so far minimal sanding. I've yet to find sink marks or any issues with the kit. The details are excellent too I've ordered a PE kit with wood deck but the standard kit is good.

    Hmm probably a mistake I made. I'll have to have a look in the instructions. I might have to pry them off

    Added Some weathering and streaks on the grey portions of the hull. Still to weather the light grey areas and add a wash. Now waiting for a wooden deck kit and PE to arrive before I can continue.
  6. Started the academy Warspite kit in 1:350. After glueing and filling the hull I sprayed with black Mr hobby 1500 primer. Once dry masked off lines and resprayed more primer to create a slightly 3d effect for the hull plating. Quite pleased with how well this worked. I used this to paint in a hull plating effect I used tamyia 0.4mm masking tape along the panel lines and then toned down the panel effect along with some streaks added. Used the 0.4 mm tape to do the same with the above the waterline. Result so far. Bit of over spray here and there so lots of bits to tidy up

    Is Mr hobby colour waterproof?

    Ok thanks will probably do this then. I'm not too sure on spraying 2k indoors especially in a flat isn't it really toxic isocyanate? Would abek level 2 filters be enough to spray 2k?

    Is Mr hobby colour waterproof?

    Hi I have a question not strictly modeling but I have been using Mr colour laquer paints for modeling. I was wondering if these paints are waterproof and weather proof if coated with Mr hobby gloss clear coat. Basically I've a couple of paint chips on my bike and would like to use my airbrush to touch them up with some gloss black and apply gloss clear to seal it in. Would this be weather proof? I'd use a rattle can of car paint but the spray pattern will be too big for the damage area. Interested to know if anyone has ever used model paints for this type of thing. Cheers

    Best PE kit for academy Warspite 1:350

    Thanks for the advice Pontos it is then. Originally I tried to find a premium kit but couldn't find one glad I got the standard one now.

    Thanks I was looking at the pontos kit an it looks pretty substantial. Just one question the premium academy kit only includes half the set you get buying the pontos kit separate?

    Best PE kit for academy Warspite 1:350

    Hi I have a 1:350 academy Warspite and am wanting to upgrade with wood deck and PE set. I'm interested to hear suggestions about which one to get. Was thinking about the pontos super set but seen MK1 set or white ensign. The MK1 set seems to be about half the price of the pontos while the White ensign doesn't come with decks and is similar price as pontos. Anyone used these before?

    Thanks I'll see if I can get some acetate and have a go at that. Definitely would be interestrd in the decals and I could definitely use some parts so that would be much appreciated. I'll post a list of the spares I'm looking for. Thanks
