1/350 Tamiya King George V

Recommended Posts

Hi all,
 Having started a FW190 but had many ships sat waiting and I was itching to build another so the plane has taken a back seat.  

I'm build this with the Eduard Big Ed set and wooden decks. The paint scheme Will be the disruptive colours. Only thing is the ship is being built as 1945 refit. So paint won't match the year, I'm not after too much accuracy but a nice looking model to display at home. 

This is my first Tamiya kit so hopefully it will be a good one. I started by drilling the portholes out then cleaning the decks up. 

Chris

I have now installed the decks and cleaned up the joints around the edge of the decks. I have started adding the PE lockers parts too.

Hi guys, 

I've now finished with the locker tops and the front wave breaker slowly getting there.

Hi guys, here is a quick update. I've now painted the hull in the camo scheme and started on the deck structures.

Thanks for the nice comments guys. Been busy doing minuscule work. I've been adding more etch and generally building up the towers.  Had no major faults or parts missing. The Eduard instructions are very good but you do need to go between the them and then tamiya ones many times over and over to make sure you get them right.

Thanks for looking in.

Here are the latest picture from this weekend. This camo pattern is tricky to keep it wrapping around correctly.
