1/700 Missile Ships
« on: April 28, 2018, 01:03:57 PM »
So, I thought Missiles - land sea and air.
Let me have a go at a missile ship.
You get two missile ships and two X boats.

Well the X boat proved quite easy - only 3 bits.
However the Missile ship may prove more of a challenge.

This 1/700 stuff is a bit small, my eyes and fingers hurt already.
Well here is my attempt at some etched brass - could do better, my school report always said that.

The clothes peg kind of puts things in perspective somewhat. I would certainly need some sort of magnification to work with that scale. I assume when you come to slap a bit of paint on it will be with a brush?

That's a good bit of 1/700 brass work - now you know why I work mainly in 1/350.

No, I will spray it with the required grey and they paint the details with a brush.

It is about the right size.

I changed the title so that I could add some other missile ships as and when - well like now.

This is the USS Mobile Bay, picked up very cheap from Mr Croppers Shop.

I have added some photo-etched rails.

The enlarged photos are very cruel.
Don't look too closely!

Hi Zak,
Don't be too critical, the pictures look really good.
A nice subject, finished with some flair.
Cheers,
Bigkev

Here we are on the sea, well my attempt at sea anyway.
I will now be able to put my tutorial from Tony to use on the next one.

I like it -- what did you use for the sea and what colour ???
At the possibility of being moderated by Kevein, I was looking at the pictures of your boat and the one I am working on and thought " mine is bigger than yours"

In the words of Tony B - I just sloshed some paint on the thin layer of DAS Clay and then added some gloss varnish (the colours were deep sea grey, blue and green).
Not up to Mr B's standard though.
