  1. That was not boring! I think many of us aspire to doing casting so thank you for sharing what you have!
  2. So i toned down the sides a did a grimy wash everywhere else. I have cracked on with the rigging & here is a taste! 20200220_220632_Film2 by OutcastJoel, on Flickr
  3. Looking back through photos I realised I had massively overdone the rust, the Lexington was only out of refit in this configuration for about 3 weeks prior to being sunk so whilst the anchor rust is probably ok, the other streaks are far too heavy!
  4. This is supperb! Lovely work, I shall pull up a pew and watch if you don't mind!
  5. these look awesome! I always love when people do scratchbuilding or designing bespoke detail bits. Please keep the updates coming!
  6. I managed to get the boot line on, but had some problems with paint coming away with Tamiya tape. It now looks like the end is in sight with weathering beginning! The rust steaks are done with vallejo acrylic which was popped down witha thin brush and then overpainted with thinners to soften the edges. 20200214_214332_Film2 by OutcastJoel, on Flickr The exhaust staining was an exciting one for me, I used my first dedicated weathering product in the form of an AK wash and I am really chuffed with the effect! 20200214_214353_Film2 by OutcastJoel, on Flickr I am really looking forward to trying my hand at rigging so hopefully will finish the weathering in the next day or two.
  7. I treated myself to a new airbrush earlier this week and I am loving it! the difference from my £7 Chinese one is quite impressive. 20200213_174216_Film2 by OutcastJoel, on Flickr 20200213_185344_Film2 by OutcastJoel, on Flickr
  8. Nice build, really lovely work! This is tempting me to pull mine out of the stash...
  9. Beautifully modelled. I really enjoyed the inclusion of the history, the whole combo is a touching tribute.
  10. That is a really cool subject and well executed!
  11. I thought this was amazing work and then I read your description properly and realised it was even RC! Crazily excellent work, thank you for sharing!
  12. Copying photos across from flickr is as clunky as heck on my phone so here are the two best! 20200207_163943_Film2 by OutcastJoel, on Flickr I have left the top of the exhausts off for separate painting so the insides of them can be black. 20200209_205341_Film2 by OutcastJoel, on Flickr I primed the model tonight using mr surfacer primer and realised I really need an extractor fan... It goes on nicely though! Some of the PE railings and the odd bits that encircle the hull are hanging sort of loose after priming, i have no idea if this was already the case and the primer shows it up or if the cellulose thinners have upset the CA glue, any ideas?
  13. @Jamie @ Sovereign Hobbies thank you for the advice. I have actually started painting tonight! I am doing the bulk by airbrush and just doing details by hand. I joined the hull and flight deck which might turn out to be a bit of a mistake but otherwise it is all still in single assemblies. I will ping up some photos tomorrow
