HMS Dauntless - 1/700 Type 45 Destroyer


Recommended Posts

Pleased to show my effort at Dragon's Type 45. As with my recent T23, 1/700 is pretty small, I used the included PE & WEM/ Colourcoats paints. Seascape copied from Scale-a-ton on youtube - happy with it, but as with the weathering on the ship itself the sea is probably a bit 'overboard'. I went for 6 months in continuous North Sea, force 5 look...

Weathering doesn't look as dodgy in real life - extreme close up with iphone.

 

Any comments/ recommendations welcome.

Gidday again Richard, as with your Type 23 HMS Montrose I think both the model and the sea are very good. I didn't notice that small boat at first, hence I wondered what that gantry type thing was doing. Now it's obvious - small boat launch and recovery.

      As I said, it's a good model. But I think she's an ugly ship - beauty (or the lack of) in the eye of the beholder and all that! 🙂 No offence meant.

Regards, Jeff.

And I have to agree with Jeff I am not one for these modern ships no character to them I think but you have done a cracking job with the build and display  👍

Agree with what everyone else has said.  Great model and great seascape.  Not sure I'd fancy being the seaboat coxswain in those weather conditions though!
