1/350 Revell, Tirpitz (Platinum Ed)

Incredible. Colours masking build the look. You could put the latest parts in a box and display that alone. Awesome

I've got Bismarck in the stash, the detail makes the pontos set very tempting but it's so expensive on its own, that paint job must be a test of patience

Thanks guys for looking in and comments.

 I have started to make the Skylights. I removed them at the beginning as the moulded ones are completely naf even with the PE fitted on them so I have made them out of styrene. I had to make a jig to cut them. There is 28 to make.
 Also I have started the other skylights on 9 of these ones. Also made 2 more boat stands.

Hi guys, thanks for your nice comments. Sorry for the delay in posting update but I lost my father to covid a few weeks ago but am back now building. 

I have installed all the vents and then made a start on the rear structure. Removing and adding detail both PE and scratch built. Then giving it a coat of grey. 

I also bought a new kit which I will post pics for you all to drool over the detail. I personally was shocked at the amount of detail it has.

Sorry to hear the very sad news Chris hope you and the family are doing well 

Looks like you have been taking your mind off things with all the details and a great job at that 

 

Stay Safe and Best Wishes

So very sorry to hear of your Dad's passing Chris. That is the third Covid loss I'm directly aware of in the last couple of weeks. A friend of mine lost his step son (late forties and pretty healthy) and within a week, his step son's father died also from Covid. This awful virus is leaving so few of us untouched in some way. Thoughts are with you and your family.

 

The model is a masterpiece and as Greg suggests might always remind you of him.

Hi guys, thanks for your nice comments and looking in. 

 

@steve5I cut small squares of masking tape (Kabuki or tamiya) then just stick them on carefully and peel off carefully. It can be stressful and time consuming  but worth it. 


 I have now done the camo pattern and weather it. I also installed the steps and glue the section to the hull.

 

Chris

@steve5 I use dark brown acrylic watered down quite thin then brush lightly around edges. Build it up slowly with a couple of layers if needed, also I make different shades of brown and thin them slightly less and do the odd plank. Practice on the wood thats left over surrounding the actual deck on the sheet. That way you can get it right first. This was my first attempt so you should be able to do it quiet easily.  

 

Thank you so much for the nice comments guys and for looking in.
 I have made the last rangefinder and made the brass mast to fit on too. I have also made the last pice to fit on the rear structure. I have primed but no pics until next time as they are drying at moment.
