Hi all I was given this and the Bismark for a Christmas pressie from my daughter and son I bought what i thought was the pe for this kit (which cost more than the kit and I now discover is still not the full pe for it, i will buy the rest but just have to wait a bit) so I was thinking I quite like the pics by Eduard and pontos (others are availiable) of the pe on the finished ship with no paint on it and was thinking maybe I would do that with just a slight difference being I would weather the pe but leave it unpainted. What do you all think, I quite like the pe showing I think it adds interest(i know it's not very accurate but let's face it I'm pretty rubbish with this modelling lark and I very seldom build as per the instructions anyway.
So here is my start on this build




Made a start on the decking (Will be using pastels for the decking this is just the base coat.

Well im a bit annoyed with eduard.
I started putting the pe portholes on and got 10 done and thought hang on theres something wrong here ( they give you 50 pe portholes) counted down one side theres 63 (it does say optional parts) optional or not they should at least supply enough for the job. And now im thinking about it what about all the pprtholes on the super structure.
When i built the warspite i had loads of parts left on tge sprue that wernt mentioned anywhere in tge instructions ive since discovered they were ment to be portholes they look a bit different to the ones eduard supply but maybe i will use them.
I managed to get the portholes off without damaging the paintwork too much. As i say maybe i will try the warspite ones will have a count up and see if theres enough.

Hi ken. Looking forward to this build i did both of these kits in 80s.

Its likly that the eduard set of scuttles is designed for the superstructure not the hull. You can get hull scuttles from places like white ensign models for not to much

Hi all well I've done the decking and weathered the hull.

I'm surprised how much bigger this is than the warspite she also quite a bit wider.

Hi all well I've added a miniscule amount of the huge amount of pe to this and I've realised someone made a big mistake how do you open these doors.





Encase you can't see from the pics there is a box about 1 mill in font of a 3 mill door

Well it's been a long time since I put a ship on a stand (usually I have them in a dio of some sort) I think the last one I put on a stand was the La Royale de France.
I'm not sure I like the supplied stand maybe I will put her in a dry dock.

Looking really great there Ken!Cool The supplied stands never seem to look that good somehow. I think you can't beat a good hardwood base with a couple of brass pillars for support. One of my old model ship books had a great method of buying a wooden drawer front (with the ogee shaped edges) and using the bottom part of a couple of brass door knobs (the smaller drawer handle types) as the supports. Very effective and pretty cheap to buy!Cool
Keep them coming!

Hi all well this will probably be my last update before we get back from our hols we will be packing tomorrow night.
Got to say I'm really looking forward to a week in the sun doing nothing at all with a drink in my hand and my every whim catered for.





I'm thinking of drilling out all the portholes (I say thinking as there are a lot of them)

Great work Ken, the difference the etch makes is certainly worth the effort.
