I’ve got one in mothball at the moment, but going to finish it in the up and coming GB. Nice start Peter.

Very nice model.

Bought this in Portsmouth. Decided boats were not for me & gave it away. £30 about 20 years ago I would say.

Nice work Peter.. This little carriers were superb looking ships. Especially up against the dear old Hermes.
At least one of the should be preserved after their sterling service the Invincible gave in the Falklands.

Laurie.

Started on the hanger deck walls with some dry brushing to highlight the interior walls

Whilst waiting for the new compressed I was lucky to paint enough to do some more work and I have all the Hull bays painted and installed.
