MRMRL Posted January 31 Share Posted January 31 Hi All I've not posted this one here yet, so an update for an older build, I'm not quite sure how old, but it's pre-2015 as I have a picture of it on the shelf at that point. This was the first time I really tried to up my game on a ship build, I'd tinkered with a bit of railings before this, but no more than that. So this was the first ship I airbrushed, the first I added a wooden deck (I think I added it after construction which would have been interesting), and the first I built with railings from the outset. It's also the last time I used stretched sprue to do the rigging, I switched to EZ line after this one. Looking back on it now, it looks pretty good considering all that. It's one of four ships I have that remains on the "might redo it if I have time/money" list (with two others that I might decide to put on the list, three that have had that treatment already and three that I've binned the old version in disgust with the replacement in the stash awaiting construction). I think I can see in the detail where my skill has improved over the years, radar, AA, ships boats, all show the absence of photo-etch aftermarket kits, but for a mostly OOB build that this was, it's decent enough to not stand too much out alongside the later built ships in my fleet. Hope you enjoy And the little S-Boat that comes with that Trumpeter kit, could definitely use some detail on this - and some Tamitape tape for the waterline 20 1 Link to comment Share on other sites More sharing options...
