1/350 Revell, Tirpitz (Platinum Ed)


Recommended Posts

Many thanks to all who posted and looked in. 

Here I have sprayed, weathered and fitted the breakwaters and the cranes. Had a few problems with the paint. It kept blocking the airbrush the bottle is nearly empty but has gone off after 5 months. Yet the other bottles are fine. Have ordered another light grey to replace it for weekend spraying.

Hi guys, thanks for looking in and nice comments.  

 I have now done all the boats and finished painting and adding the rest of the deck items. Leaving me the railings,  all the guns and cannons then the masts and rigging.

looking good, curious about the black 'trim' on thr forward superstructure, did that only run around the forward area/was it painted over when they added the camo scheme?

There isn't any black trim around the forward structure. I think it looks that way from the shadows. The only black paint on the ship is the hull banding.

Thanks for looking in and nice comments. 

 I have now made the 2 cranes which were a royal pain in the backside to make. You need 4 hands to hold things and glue things. I think these are not bad. Would probably do differently next time.

Gidday Chris, your "Lone Queen of the North" looks like she needs her makeup attended to. This is an excellent model. Those cranes make have been a pain to do but they look really good now.

     Regards, Jeff.

Thanks for looking in and your nice comments guys. 

I have made up the main turrets and made all the blast bags from resin sculpting clay. I also made the twin 10.5cm guns. They just need the PE fitting to them next.

Many thanks guys.
 I have made one of the 20mm flack 38 guns. The pics show the kit part vs the pontos one. The kit one has 3 pieces where as the pontos one has 25 parts. I will show a break down of parts when I build the rest. This one took an hour and half to do.

Chris.

Gidday Magpie, that quad 20mm (Flakvierling?) is a model in it's own right. Well done. And where do you get those large matches 😁? (Yeah, I know, that's an old one.) Regards, Jeff.
