She looks great, Rob! :speak_cool:

 

Very nice work resolving the resin fit issues.

 

The mines & oerlikon mount give her a unique look.

Beautiful job there Rob. May try one of those CC kits at some point but I need to finish my basic training on the good old Airfix Vosper first!

 

Thanks for sharing a great WIP.

Looks brill!!! How did you achieve the background, as in no corners etc? I tried a white sheet once but didn’t have the effect you have.

Good to see the unusual mines ready for deployment

 

A pleasure to follow your build

Hi Stelangton

Nothing sophisticated......

 

DSCF9123

 

One overhead Shesto light with a single cheap bedstand lamp fitted with a daylight bulb and a piece of Artist's card which I stick up as pictured.  I'll also turn this so it's lengthwise.

Occasionally I'll crop pics when the corners exceed the card.  I actually have some large diffuser lights but it's such a faff to set them up in the limited space that it never seems worthwhile.

These 2 lights often give colour gradations that are unplanned but quite attractive versus completely shadowless diffused light with the bigger lamps.

 

There's obviously a limit to the size of model I can photograph with this set up - so far everything has fitted including my Fairmile.

 

Thanks Again everyone ;)

I'm partly waiting for Micromaster Goodies to come from NZ and for PE sets to be released.

I've been inspired by your big Capital ships ;)
