this bit annoyed me, why the hell are the gates located on the nice detailed part of the snorkel? really guys, slap in the gob for the langer who thought that was a ''good idea'' !!
Thats all for the minute, im just doing the basic assembly at the minute, ill update as soon as its come along a bit, cheers!
You are bang on about the gobshites responsible for designing the sprue set ups.My thing is 1/72 armour and it amazes me how having created really fine and detailed parts some fool screws it up by attaching it to the sprue at it`s finest, most fragile and detailed spot. I can tell you the air has turned seriously blue in this gaff plenty times.
Thanks Brian, ya id love to visit her too, would be a amazing experience, i was looking at your work on the XXI cutaway which is a sweet job, ive that kit to do also and hope i can do as well as you did with it, gonna be a bit of a squeeze on the ''Sub'' shelf lol
So far so good as they say, now to get the wee bits on and crack on with the fun bit, thanks for looking guys
So far so good, ill take a few more pics tonight as i progress and hope to get them up.
Thanks for looking
The pic below, sorry bout the size and quality, shows her with the tower she had pre this one, when she was a research vessel, no red stripe,
this one shows her with the tower which has the larger cylindrical extensions on the side of the tower, but no red band, at least that i can make out
And here is the red band, quite clearly marked, and the extension to the tower, also contrary to the instructions you can see the band only goes up to the edge of the tower not over it, so i decided to crack on and do this band
first i did the aluminium sections
then a combination of tape and masking fluid went on and i did the band
Thats it for the minute, gonna give it a coat of sealer and then ill do the last detailing and the decals, then the weathering.
Thanks for looking
So now a bit more sealer and then decals, then im going to scratch build the railings down each side of the deck, but everything else will have to be finished and sealed in first, there is like 11 posts and the wire across the tops of them to do, should really bring out the detail. Laters
