  1. Hello Building U-boat type VIIC in 1/350 scale, model is from AVF club. Decent little model but upon looking at the paint guide the numbers for Mr color paints appear to be incorrect. The numbers it gives would have the below water line area sea grey and the above area bright white. Any recommendations as to the colors for this boat? The bottom appears to be dark grey or black whilst the top is lighter grey. Help appreciated Thanks
  2. OK great will the decals be available on your website once you have them? Think I'll be ordering a pontos detail kit soon for my next project once I've finished with this one.
  3. Hello Currently nearing completion on 1/350 Hms Lord Nelson pre dreadnought battleship from Hobby boss. I just wondered if there are any aftermarket decals for the draft markings available for 1/350 ships as the kit lacks these. My other 1/350 model warspite had the decals included with a PE detail kit I bught. Any ideas?
  4. This is one I'll be looking at once some PE is released for it. Also anyone know what the cruiser is next to it?
  5. Thanks. Yes I used AK interactive naval wash for grey warships and AK naval wood deck wash thinned down for the wood deck. And AK interactive naval salt stain wash.
  6. Almost finished the AA guns which I've found to be very fiddley and difficult. couldn't get the ammo boxed to line up 100% but I'm sure it will look ok once painted Rigging on forward tower as per illustration, not sure on the accuracy but I'm happy enough at this stage for a representation rather than perfect historical accuracy. On my next build think I'll buy some books at the start and aim for more historical details. I managed to ruin the PE for the top bridge level wind deflector so I made one from thin plastic strip I've since learned you can request replacement parts so I'm currently waiting the new parts and I'll try again ordered 2 lots of the parts so I've 2 more attempts to fit it. Finished the rear tower and painted it. I found an illustration online supposedly showing the rigging layout and followed it but I'm not sure if its right. I used brass wire but I think next model I'll use black string. Added a wood stain to the deck, doesn't really show in these photos my phone camera is pretty poor resolution but the model looks a lot better in real life Added some streaks to the hull with salt and warship weathering wash. I'm going to touch up the hull a bit around the camouflage bits and the black stripe since I've got much better at masking and spraying since I painted the hull. Hopefully I can Just straighten the lines a bit and tidy up a few areas i'm not so happy with. Pretty happy with how this has turned out as my first ship model so far. I plan to build a collection of 1:350 scale ships, I'll do a lot of things different on the next build Definitely learned a lot on this one.
  7. I'm looking for a 1:350 scale RN pre dreadnought like hms majestic or similar. I've seen hms agincourt and lord Nelson by hobby boss so I'd consider either of those but wondered if there is any more. I've also seen Iron shipwright kits of hms royal sovereign pre dreadnought which is a resin kit. Anyone got any experience with these IS resin kits? Seems very expensive but if they come with extensive PE might be worth a look.
  8. Thanks for the extra info, do you know what colour the life rafts mounted to the super structure would have been? Cheers
  9. Thanks for the Info so it's just the AA tubs around the catapult? What about the tubs on the turrets? Hopefully I won't have to try remove them
  10. Thanks for the Info I didn't know when was the catapult decommissioned? I think the box says it's a 1943 depiction. That's a real shame I was hoping to have one plane visible through the open Hanger door and the other on the catapult. How come the kit and pinto's set include these parts?
  11. Thanks for the replys major problem is the missing cockpit and nose canopies. Anyone know how I could either replace it scratch build these?
  12. I have an old revell 1:48 scale PBY Catalina kit number 04520 from the mid 90s. I built it as a kid and I've decided to strip the paint dismantle it and start again using same method I used in a tamyia chieftain model Does anyone know if there are any after market photo etch or resin parts for this model? I'm also missing a couple of bits such a some clear canopies. Any ideas if these parts can be sourced aftermarket? . Cheers
  13. Added some washes/ streaking and a Matt coat. still deciding wether to add the black camo or not as I like it with just the green. Still to paint figures and add some camo nets.
