Afternoon all

Finally a completed ship, not good enough but getting there, albeit slowly20211122_131235.jpg20211122_131244.jpg20211122_131249.jpg20211122_131307.jpg20211122_131313.jpg
Learnt a lot and not near so many mistakes but need to do somethings differently.

Will not spray on the sprue again, in furture will remove from sprue leaving only one attachment point and in colour groups

The brush painting is poor, sorry, not helped by ME poor skill and some shakes!

Use Mr Color with mid retarder for brush work, do not know wether to carry on or use vallejo just for small brush jobs, but afraid that colour might not be exactly the same?

Should have made a lot of the main paint, there is a slight difference in places

Hope it goes someway to being a ship? Next is Admiral Graf Spee. Should be better again

Thank you all, BUT figures, nnnooooo! That would make me ring the sarmaritans:upside::thumb2:

Have learnt that must paint the back of railings before adding bits close to railings!!

Bob,
that looks very good - you need some sort of stand to show it off & have a nameplate! Now you've got that under your belt, the Graf Spee will be another step up. Not mixing enough paint is one of my recurring fears, I always end up with far more than I need...................

I usually do that Dave, but this was a mix of 90/10%, also ran out of paint, both to add to the 'do' list in future!!
