PRINCE OF WALES in1941 by TAMIYA in 1:350
« on: August 10, 2020, 11:33:43 AM »
                 Latest project folks. Got the kit from Hobby-craft  a few years ago, less than 50, since then I've added wood decks and some etched brass.
                  The decks are from Wood Hunter and are 0.25mm thick including the peel off backing film which takes up about half the thickness so quite thin.
                The brass is from Eduard. Some of it won't get used for all sorts of reasons.
            Started a few days ago whilst waiting for stuff to dry on HMS Kent. Mainly test fitting stuff and sorting a build sequence.
Haddock.

You're building at quite a rate Tony. You'll be catching up with Dave.

if we ALL put our models made under Haddocks name we still would not match the number of models Zak makes !!!!!

I don't how he does it. I think I'm doing well getting two out at a time. Hmm, must try harder!!!
Looking forward to seeing this build progress and wonder what gems of inspiration are around the corner.

I seem to remember in engineering that big problems are usually lots of little ones joined together.
If you can knock the little one down one at a time, you usually get there in the end.
I keep telling myself this.

Would you like to run the country Haddock?
A man of your calibre and common sense are definate requirements for the job!
Watch out Boris!, there's a new contender on the block!!
As always, I look forward to the build in the hands of the 'Master'
Watching......

Water-lined and primed, ready for paint.

I always breath a sigh of relief when crane jibs are done!

Never ceases to amaze me when you do the jibs. If I did them there'd be glue showing all over. Yes I know, I must try harder!!!
