Hi Ian
Looks as if this went on the Self of Doom with not much done. Should build into a nice model, quite big as well. And it has little helicopters :tongue-out3:

Got the lower deck all completed, now it’s ready for the hull sides,

and as you can see there’s a little warping.

Nice progress, slow down you'll make the rest of in this G,B look like slackers lol. Shame about that warping, guess glueing it around the deck will sort a lot out.

That’s the plan Mark, I hope it works.

I am just waiting to see how you handle all the flight deck decals
It shouldn't be long peter, I'm just about the paint the hull sides then I should be able to do the decaling before I fit the super structure.

Just had a catch up on this one. It’s coming along well Ian. Seems to be building fairly easily and the addition of colour is bringing it to life.

Thanks Tim. There was a little bit of warp in the hull sides, but all sorted with a little persuasion.
