  1. Hi Jeff, Um sort of.....when I was about 13 I had one that never got finished, she's a great looking ship, I hold a small hope that one day a 1/350 of her and an R class will be released,
  2. They do look rather nice, I think I've been swayed, thanks for sharing,
  3. Yeah did have a look at them, was a little dubious as I've not seen anything 3d printed, but people do seem to speak well of them, I was hoping to get the turrets and the barrels pretty cheaply hence big blue but I guess there's a risk of getting what you pay for.
  4. Hi All, Quick question, does any one have any experience with parts from Big Blue Boy? I've a 1/350 Hood in the 'stash' and keep an eye out for buys for her while I work on other stuff. I've seen a resin turret set to correct the awful trumpeter ones from a company called Big Blue Boy, it includes turned barrels and blast bags. I've had a look on the Hood website and a search on here but can't find any real reviews as to if they're worth the money. The only other thought was Fkyhawks turret set but I'd then need to find turned barrels to fit blast bags, Any input gratefully received Thanks Sam
  5. Looks great , did you have any issues with paint adhesion? I've heard Vallejo can be tricky,
  6. I'm a WW2er as well but also quite like the look of the earlier WW1 stuff that is around now. Im gonna have to take the plunge and put bits up as im doing them, as much as I'm working on Warspite I've yet to finish off my Type 45 which I really ought to finish off if only to put it to bed, I've not a lot left to do with her but could do a short work in progress log I guess, went for a type 45 because I liked the clean lines, it's not been a fun build though, either way should push through, Sam
  7. Hi all, Been stalking these pages for a while without saying much trying to pick up tips and tricks, figured it's time I said a proper hello. Boats is my thing, first thing I ever built was a 1:600 HMS Warspite from Airfix when I was about 13, currently working on a 1:350 of her 22 years later. Not done much for the past fifteen odd years until picking up the hobby knife and humbrol a few months back. Looking forward to picking your brains on how to fix the various things I make a mess of, Sam

  9. I'm halfway through the airfix kit and the fit is awful I've had to fill every joint, I've no experience of trumpeter kits but I'd be surprised if it could be worse
  10. Personally I'd finish off the Type 45, looks like the trumpeter kit - (not the airfix kit which requires silly amounts of filling and sanding unfortunately). Your Seydlitz looks superb, I'm toying with either this, trumpeters HMS Repulse or ICM's Konig next,
