Recommended Posts

A small update started adding various lockers around the decks and added the pennant numbers to the hull sides and did a few touch ups

That looks very neat and the result will be a stunner !

The Royal Navy had lots of striking camo schemes on their ships, this is one of them.

 

Thanks Bernd

If you want a Rolls Royce look to your Model I recommend these 1/350 Fabric Flags from BECC Model Accessories

http://www.becc.co.uk/contents/en-uk/d60.html

The Difference is staggering to the look of the Model

note I would recommend to anyone for a destroyer subject - use the AAA size ( exact match )

I have ordered some today , for my HMS Cossack build in the Summer

Hope the angle of the mast is better for your neck now it is attached also added the funnel stays from fuse wire and a few small deck fittings

Still coming along brilliantly

 

That mast thing has really come out well.

 

Must put an order in at B&Q for some clear silicon, as it will probably be sold out when you come to do your superb seascapes lol

 

Cheers

OK been a while getting back to this nearly done with the deck fittings and have started on the base

 

Don't worry it is not sand on the base it is just brown tissue paper from a shoe box
