BigGrin Thanks for the brilliant comments guys Cool
I have been looking forward to building this ship as soon as I found out it was coming out Cool and it hasn't disappointed yet as the castings have been spot on, no flash or large mold lines BigGrin
The anchor has been painted and the stock fitted. I made some bands out of plastic strip to go round the wooden stock and painted them with iron paint . The ring was fitted and wrapped with some thread Cool
Next job the angels. Fiddley little devils but they came out well Blink
The Royal crest was next . I'm not to happy with the gold as it looks to brassy so this weekend I will get some different paint and dry brush it over Cool
The cannons have been painted and dry brushed to make them look older Cool
Hopefully will start the hull bulkheads this weekend
Thanks for following
Martyn

BigGrin Cheers for the comments guys Cool
A bit more painting done on the decorations while waiting for the first bits of the hull to dry
I repainted the coat of arms with gold paint from Mig and then did the two lions that go each side Cool the other frame was painted and highlight Cool
Next job the two knights. Had a slight problem with one of them as he two left arms but it's being sorted out Cool so painted the other one, quite fiddley but not as fiddley as the two little fellas which are tiny Blink . Then just to give my eyes a rest the two lion heads where painted in beige and picked out with a brown wash Cool

BigGrin Thanks for the comments everyone Cool
I thought the Sovereign had some decorations on it but this ship takes it to the next level as I didn't realise there where so many colours. Loving it though Love . I have now made up a box just for the paints so they are much easier to find Cool
Next update soon

I have been itching to get my hands on this one as its probably my favourite ship Love and the Deag one is the most accurate on out there and looking at the official build the kit looks very high quality Love

Thanks again
Martyn




I have startEd to build this beautiful model and am looking forward to sharing my build with fellow builders.
Today I received all the paint I need for this build and will start the fine painting when I have pieces to do.
In the mean time I am working on the Red Dragon by AL.

BigGrin Thanks for the comments guys Cool
Looking forward to seeing your build Snoepert you won't be disappointed as its a great ship to build Cool
After painting all the little decorations that's come with the pack I have glued the hull and frames and started planking this beast. Be careful with the top of the ribs as they are very delicate as I managed to snap one off just resting on my knees faring the ribs Crying but it glued up ok Cool as you can see I have used map pins to hold the planks in place if you use this method pre drill the holes in the ribs first as they will split.
Next update more planking
