HMS Dreadnought 1907 - Trumpeter 1/350

Thank you. 

Now there is a question. On the photos from 1905 the main mast is in one colour, but in 1908 you can see the main beams in dark colour (I assume it is black). Does somebody know when it was repainted and what colour should be on my?

Hi Kris

 

I don't know the exact date but there's a picture captioned in June 1907 where the foremast tripod legs (I assume that's what you're referring to) look grey, and one dated 'mid 1907' where there's definitely a darker section up to the bottom of the control top, all the Dec 1906 gun trial pics have no 'black' section and all the 1908 pics have it so I assume mid 1907 some time.

 

I went for black on mine as that's what most references for the darker portion of masts seems to show this.

 

Cheers

Hi Nick. I've painted mine in black as well. Hopefully photos soon.

For few days I am trying to fit the wooden decks, but when I've got the model out of the box and have to start I feel like a fox approaching a hedgehog. But hopefully it gonna be done over the weekend.

Cheers. The more I am looking on those propellers the more I think I need to repaint them. Can someone advice me with the best paint for it, please?

If you just want to paint them - Vallejo liquid gold (old gold probably).

 

You'll need alcohol and a dedictaed brush to use it, but it's wonderful stuff.

I've corrected painting of the propellers. It is Extreme Metal Brass from AK. In my opinion very good paint.

Nice work Kris, looks great.

I like your idea of fixing the funnel stays now, I did mine later and they were a b******d to get to!!

 

Cheers

Cheers lads. This is all new for me and I thought a little bit of how to do it. Not sure that I am going the right direction, but will see. I've already mounted the front mast and now I will rigg it. I will post some photos when that will be done.

Really nice work! The rigging looks impressive, and the build and weathering truly makes this model authentic.

 

Cheers, Tom
