Those kits are quite basic from my recollection. A ship that saw active service on Operation Corporate too.

Nice work so far Ian. These Airfix ships are rather sparse by themselves, but with the PE they should come to life. I've got an old Ajax with WE PE waiting in the wings, so interested to see how you do your PE work.

Pre-shaded and painted the hull, I've tried to make it look like the plating you get but I don't think it's worked out.

Nice work Ian. I think the PE will make a big difference to this one.
