HMS Prince of Wales Tamiya 1/350

Postman has brought some goodies this morning. A copy of Roger Chenseau's KGV Class Battleships and  a set of barrels from RBM to replace the kit ones.

Final coat on the bottom now, hopefully not a million miles away from where it should be colour wise. Using what I had on the shelf and Tamiya's mix of 2:1 XF-7 red and XF-10 brown, I found that it came out more of a brownish purple, so increased the red by about 30% to end up with what I have here, that looks to be a 'closer' approximation of what Jamie has published in this thread https://www.britmodeller.com/forums/index.php?/topic/235034309-hull-red/

 

It will do for this model, the next I will move over to Sovereign's rather than making do.

Some minor touch-ups needed and the easy bit is done.

There is something decidedly nerve wracking to take a saw to cut off the kit barrels and then try to dill parallel holes to mount the RBM barrels, but I think they are worth the effort.
