  1. Thanks for looking in. Here are the latest picture from this weekend. This camo pattern is tricky to keep it wrapping around correctly. Chris
  2. Thanks for the nice comments guys. Been busy doing minuscule work. I've been adding more etch and generally building up the towers. Had no major faults or parts missing. The Eduard instructions are very good but you do need to go between the them and then tamiya ones many times over and over to make sure you get them right. Chris
  3. Hi Guys , here is the latest batch of pics. Iv'e started with the railings and they are fiddly. Chris
  4. Hi guys, here is a quick update. I've now painted the hull in the camo scheme and started on the deck structures. Chris
  5. Hi guys, I've now finished with the locker tops and the front wave breaker slowly getting there. Chris
  6. I have now installed the decks and cleaned up the joints around the edge of the decks. I have started adding the PE lockers parts too. Chris
  7. Hi all, Having started a FW190 but had many ships sat waiting and I was itching to build another so the plane has taken a back seat. I'm build this with the Eduard Big Ed set and wooden decks. The paint scheme Will be the disruptive colours. Only thing is the ship is being built as 1945 refit. So paint won't match the year, I'm not after too much accuracy but a nice looking model to display at home. This is my first Tamiya kit so hopefully it will be a good one. I started by drilling the portholes out then cleaning the decks up. Chris
  8. Here are a few images of where I am at. No real problems gluing these together. Chris
  9. Here are some pics with plain background. Chris
  10. Here are the latest pics from todays session. I've nearly finished the cockpit. Chris
  11. Thanks for looking in, I'm looking into the boats. As for the screws I've fitted them now. Found in the draw when clearing the sprues away. Chris
  12. I decided to pick this one out of my stash to give me something small to do. Plus I haven't built a WW2 German plane before so is a first. The Kit is a few yrs old now but quality is good. Here are the start pics for you . The cockpit looks dark but it actually isn't. Chris
  13. Hi guys. I finished this build last week. It was started 8 years ago but has been on and off the work bench for many years. But so glad to see the back of it as it was a terrible kit. I haven't installed the Lifeboats as I lost some parts after many house moves over the years. Chris
  14. Nice work Nick. I've just finished barring the lifeboats the Hatchette 1:200 Hood it's a Lovely ship but rubbish kit. Chris
  15. Thanks guys, for the great comments. I will spin the flags round see how she looks. Chris
