That looks fantastic! The dazzle idea was good but I think I prefer the standard finish.
excellent job on the hull planking too.

And talking of my build here's a small update I have decided on building some a new parts and the first of the new parts will be the first and second class gratings that cover the domes using the magazine supplied template and a new hatch cover for the forward deck still work to do on them but here's what they look like so far.WP_20181118_09_29_41_Pro.jpg

I have now finished the gratings and ready to install them in their respective places but have to remove the old second class grating.WP_20181119_15_04_34_Pro.jpgWP_20181119_15_05_30_Pro.jpgWP_20181119_15_19_20_Pro.jpgWP_20181119_15_20_55_Pro.jpgWP_20181119_15_27_47_Pro.jpg

Done a bit more this time it's transferring the bridge structures over and the ships wheel and compass along with the telegraphs.
And also I have replaced the dome gratings with plastic to give a neater appearance.
And I have refitted the bow anchor.WP_20181201_15_11_50_Pro.jpgWP_20181209_13_25_30_Pro.jpgWP_20181209_13_53_06_Pro.jpgWP_20181209_13_25_53_Pro.jpg

While waiting for my spitfire to dry I picked up the two ships and started transfering some parts over from the doner ship it's mainly railings and vents four cranes from bow and parts on the fore deck.20190416_153208.jpg20190416_153218.jpg20190416_153234.jpg20190416_163956.jpg
