Looks like a very nice kit, might it slow you down a bit?

Haddock.

You are correct Haddock, it will now take him an extra 20 minutes to finish the model !!!!!!!!!!

It will slow me down as the brass may not fit as it should and a lot of head scratching will be done, I would pull out my hair but it is too late for that.
Also not sure I really like resin!

Sorry, I have not posted for a while, I have been sorting out colours and so on.
Here is the result, so far.

Hi Zak,
Looking good so far. Resin demands certain attention in its handling/cutting, but this build looks good so far.
Keep up the good work....
Cheers,
Bigkev

The Haile Sand and Bull forts guard the entrance to the Humber.
During WW2, the original Yorkshire Belle( built 1937 in Beverley), was requisitioned and used for patrols in the Humber and as a boom defence vessel.
In 1941 she was sunk by a magnetic mine with the loss of all hands, some sources say 4, others say 9.
This was a few cables length from the Haile Sand fort ( a cable is 1/10 of a nautical mile or about 100 fathoms) and so this scratch built model was inspired by this.
Once again this is in 1/350.
It is more of an impression than an accurate scale model.

Wish I had  quid for every time I've steamed past the Bull Fort. In my day, it was a mucky red/brown colour, probably rust and muck.
