And so it begins!!! I've been looking forward to this build for the last month, which has meant the Tiger that was but days from completion became homeless, and I have become restless. Now, however, I can happily assault one of the old, evil, original Airfix lineup. I picked up this kit about 5 years ago on a whim having built it (not terribly) when I was a sprog and after rediscovering my handiwork on top of a cabinet at my parents. This prompted a random purchase and some serious thought about what to do with such an old and generally spotty kit. Cue White Ensign! I was fortunate to get the PE set. At the time they had advised there may be no hope of my obtaining it from them, but a week later a letter stuck to an envelope arrived and behold! a ton of valuable PE to make this old dinghy resemble a Battleship. As to whether I'll do it justice, I have no idea. Plenty of experience with PE but never stuff this fine, and a requirement to use brushes as my Aztek seems to have sprung a fail, may cause more frustration than building OOB, but I am up for the challenge! To steal a line from a well known videogame series - let's do this...
Well this is my rendition of KGV depicting the ship in British Pacific Fleet pattern 1945 I started on this a long time ago as my start to 1/350 scale PE but soon found that I need more practice with smaller kits so it has been on the shelf for a while. I have another kit in the stash which I will attempt to build another in the class from in the future after I have a bit more practice so this time on my hands should help with that.

Nearly 2 years on and off with this it is the most modern ship I have built and boy it was a challenge with all the extra PE Peter Hall and his mad PE frets tested my patience a few times with this but quite pleased it has come out OK Couple of things I think I could do better but always learning to try and make the next one a more improved build with all the help and support you get from this site and the great modellers who are willing to give advice and share tips.
