Ok tiny steps with this baby this week, I have come to the conclusion the Humbrol white is sh1t.

Heres the aft deck with the fittings on it as a dry run. I have drilled out the ventilation thingys to give them a bit more depth.

Heres the aft deck with a few fittings stuck in and etch handrails. The dude is a 1/72 pilot.

Ok stil on course with this one, Some frosty looks from the missus as she has not seen me for the past couple of hours. Man I should be having pints. Well done Chelsea too!

After a masking disaster where the tape peel some white paint form the walls I had to strip the deck with fairey power spray to remove the enamel paint and re done the paint.

Heres the pointy end, oops I mean the bow with the wooden deck on and the hatch's being test fit.

Image

I swore I would not drill ports holes but shiver me timbers I done a few. The white side walls are test fit only.

Image

Using Blu tak to hold the small parts I sprayed up some more of the deck fittings.

Image

I also taked deck 1 with some of the walls, I noticed there was a lot of sink holes so these have been tackled with MR Surfacer. The spit is hiding in the blue lunch box drying!!

Image

Probably my favourite part is gonna be the chimneys. Here the 4 done. the Black tops are test fit. I have to put in guy ropes and paint the inside black and obviously the outside.

Image

Heres a Chimney sitting where it eventually will rest. Oh Just remember I forgot to number them Buggar. :o8

Image

Thats all folks

[smilie=rofl.gif] Sorry G! Anyway, there's no point in going all out on lovely wooden decks and then not bothering to drill out the portholes at the back... you'd never forgive yourself!

C'mere, I was watching a documentary on it the other night... is there a visible expansion joint on the model? Should be in or around the centre.
