Well, after a visit by the mother in law and then looking after ill grandchildren I have eventually managed to get back to some modelling.
My limited patience is beginning to run out, my staying power has almost failed.
I am finding the painting very difficult and have resorted to hand painting the camouflage scheme.
There is still a lot to do and the etched frets still have a lot of parts left on them.
My eyes are suffering too, hay fever as well as poor eyesight.

Press on regardless, it'll be worth it in the end, honest.

A month - I would have expected at least 38 models finished to an excellent standard in the time -- hohoho -- the joys of ship models.

The slow progress continues.
it is difficult to work out where some of the etched railings go, I can find no reference in the instructions for some of them.

Once again, slow progress, child minding, hay fever and the allotment have all taken priority.
Working on the radar at present.

Must look like it's never ending, but you will come to the home run,  honest.

Are the masts part of the kit or scratch-built? they look very nice.
