  1. The inaugural show presented by IPMS Keighley is scheduled for 23rd September 2018, at the University Academy, Greenhead Road, Keighley, BD20 6EB - please see flyer above for more details. This new one should fit in nicely into the show calendar. The club is a friendly and rapidly growing (in number that is ) bunch who I've known for a few years now, and I'm sure will put on a fine first show, with quite a number of Clubs, SIGs and Traders already signed up.
  2. Just catching on this build - wow! it has come on really well, looking impressive now.

    Hms Ceylon 1/350

    It's a shame there's very little available in 1:350 for late R.N. 6" cruisers (apart from Belfast), but this scratch build is an excellent remedy, and a real top class build so far. Also the finish and weathering look top rate too, well done!
  4. Just to close this one out, some finished photos on the link below. However the photos are poor despite various attempts to get some decent ones. I have a good camera and lens, but think I need to improve the lighting to get some better (sharper) photos in the future. http://www.modelshipgallery.com/gallery/cv/cv-09/Essex-350-rs/index.htm
  5. That looks good, and nice idea to get one of the earlier 'Towns' which adds a lot of interest to the build.
  6. Excellent work, looks stunning.
  7. Wow, that is superb, all round - the water, the ships, the finishing and detailing, and the composition are all top rate!
  8. That is just . . . wonderful - she looks superb.

    Airfix 1/600 HMNZS Achilles

    That looks great, nice to see a classic British cruiser built to this standard.

    1/350 USS Iowa

    That's great. I built the Missouri but would much rather have an Iowa, so well done on taking the leap in doing this conversion.
  11. Great finishing, this is turning into an excellent build.

    Turf how to choose right size and type

    Well, I received my WWS static grass micro applicator, with a selection of grasses and some of their layering adhesive. I would say their service was excellent, ordering was easy on-line, very prompt and well packaged delivery, the product is very nice - it all looks good quality. I have done a test piece on some card, and the result really is excellent (even the Mrs was impressed!), the grass really does stand up well, and layering up to build up denser patches worked well too. I'll need to experiment with different bases, grass lengths and colours, and with dusting over the finished article with the airbrush, but so far so good, I think I'm going enjoy using it, and should get some good results

    Trumpeter 1/350 HMS Hood

    This is a superb build of a beautiful great ship, the finishing is top notch.
  15. This ambitious build is coming along remarkably well, quite a pleasure to watch the good progress.
