That's looking the business Nick. The drydock diorama really enhances the overall model but without unduely distracting from the ship. It's a very well balanced creation you have there!

Thanks Jamie, hopefully it won't look too much when the cranes are fitted :think:

Thanks both, very much appreciated.

 

Last few bits of detail;

Made some buffers for the ends of the railway tracks from evergreen and left over bits from the railway cars;

Boarding ladders to be stowed as I'm going to use gangplanks and steps to go over the torpedo nets ready for painting, both modified from the WEM set;

And a cutter that's going to be tied up on the basin;

Really hoping to get everything finished over Easter, this really has gone on long enough!!

 

Cheers

Thanks Kev, I'm enjoying the build but sometimes you just want to stick bits of plastic together - I may have inadvertently started my next kit, an Academy Warrior IFV, couldn't help myself :D

I agree with kev,  i look forward to the finishished model, great job nick, 

Cheers Hewy, soon hopefully.

 

Despiet all my plans, she won't be finished by Easter!

Main reason being the crew; I absolutely love Northstar figures, bit I'd forgotten how long they take to get off the base sheet without breaking them, due to my clumsiness. They're ready fro painting tho, about 60 RN crew and 30 odd dock yard workers, although they're actually a mix of US and Russian navy figures;

Bow mooring lines fitted;

Midship gangway;

Aft mooring lines and gangway to the access steps and harbour boarding ladders stowed;

And some clear acrylic gel to give the water a bit of depth;

That's it for the WIP, just the crew figures to paint and the dockside cranes to go on last, otherwise I'll break 'em.

Thanks to all for the comments and encouragement and more than a little help and advice along the way - very much appreciated.

 

Next stop RFI.

 

Cheers

 

Nick

Couldn't agree more - astonishing work.  I do know what you mean about the Warrior though!

I’m not sure to be honest, I’ll check to see if there’s any mention of one in my reference stuff when I’m home this weekend.

Cheers
