Martinized!!

I like Martinized.  I expect Zak will say to "Martinize in a dark and strange way" is what I do to models.

Back to work on some models.
I like the name plate that comes with the Prince of Wales model so have removed the name and cleaned up the space, then some 3mm letters to make the new name.

More revolutionary than punkish I think..I expect the sailors would have nicknamed her "King Killer"
Jacky Fisher always wanted to name one of the WW1 battleships "Oliver Cromwell" and was surprised the King would never pass this as a name-- I wonder why ????

All very intriguing, seeing as I've visited Moseley Old Hall where King Charles II hid from Oliver Cromwell's men just this week.
Can see ships of the realm wouldn't be destined to be Oliver Cromwell................

As well 4 x 14inch guns and 6 x 51/2inch guns she has 8 "Sea Pig" missiles.
They are just bits of plastic from the scrap box with brass a top and brass bar missiles ( before somebody asks the missile part is 10mm long)  Why are they "Sea Pig" missiles  -- well if pigs could fly came to mind.
The last photo is the name plate now it has some colour on it.

Well back to a bit of plastic after show hall plan number 12,749.
The missiles now have a radar dome fitted and also they are PINK -- well it is a "Sea Pig" missile so what colour should they be ????  Before anybody starts on at me --it's my model and its for fun and if you have seen a "Sea Pig" missile and it was a different colour then I MIGHT change it but I don't think so.

Hi Msea,

Are they going to be 'Sea Pigs' as opposed to Sea Harriers.........?

Also will they be painted in high altitude pink, to match the sky as the sun sets...........

Cheers,
