I'm afraid I didn't have chance to do much modelling over Christmas been busy decorating . But i did have a go at iron plating the hull ,I had read that the supplied metal (aluminium I think) was hard to handle but I had no trouble cutting bending or glueing with superglue gel.

Nice work and looks ok but a bit too modern looking in terms of aluminium. An option would have been lead foil.

Tomick I never thought of using lead but I will be painting the hull and plating ,though lead foil probably would have given a better surface texture .

Could be that the plates were in fact copper., have a read of this...

Thanks for the comments guys ,Tomick thanks for the link very interesting article but I don't think I'll be going down the copper plating route. Have fitted the rudder hinges and reinforcing straps this was easier than I thought it would be. I have also painted the iron plating and tried to give it a rust effect using the hair spray method (a first for me ) turned out ok maybe a bit too subtle .

Now that is really nice work, your first attempt at creating a rust effect using the hair spray method looks better than just ok, very well done.....Drool Drool
