Great stuff.  It looks very 'steampunky' too - nice and industrial!

You just have to have someone taking a bath in that thing, it would so look the part.

In the process of making the transfers, the original Union jack was scanned and then pasted into a word document, the size was then adjusted to that required and then printed onto white decal paper.

So the photo shows the original and the home made ones, these have been given a coat of gloss varnish to seal everything in.
The second photo shows the transfers already applied.

The transfers have been applied, it just needs a coat of matt varnish now.
I have done some dry brushing around the raised parts.

You must have some devious plan for it?

Continuing the theme.
This is another resin/cast metal kit from Ironclad Miniatures, 28mm.
It is a light tank and is equipped with a machine gun.
It has 5 pieces, so you may sneer at the model making required, if I can sustain my interest I do intend to scratch build some models. It was as cheap postage wise to buy a number of kits as it was one, so I did.
I assembled this in next to zero time, applied a grey undercoat and then the IJN grey.

Nothing wrong with a small number of parts - them Dragon 1/144 ones I'm working on have about 7 but the finish is what makes them.  This is a good theme you've got going here and the tank looks the part.

One thing's for sure, the rivet counters will now be totally confused.

Sorry Zak - no devious plan - I just think it is great and also something different.
I think a table display looks much improved if it has a range of different topics, not just all ships or all tanks or all planes.
BUT PLEASE DON'T LET HADDOCK SEE THE BIT ABOUT "ALL SHIPS" OR I AM IN BIG BIG TROUBLE.
