Excellent work, Steve.  The quality of your work and the sea-base presentation is exceptionally effective.  It truly is outstanding!

I will pick a photo that shows the whole ship, even at the risk of not being able to see some of the incredible detail you've put into it; but I think the overall accomplishment needs to be on display.

And--I look very much forward to seeing what you come up with next.  Thanks for your contribution to the GB.    

The finished-build photo is posted.

Check,

Here are the final pics of the Scharnhorst. I have some 1/72 armor to do for this GB next.

Pick which ever pic you want.

Excellent work, Mark; looking good!  I always liked the lines of the Corsair.

Hello everyone, just a quick update on the little progress I have done this weekend, on and off, whilst watching the World Cup! The Tamiya 1/72 F4U-1 has started to take shape.

Wings have been added to the fuselage, and the horizontal stabilisers. Also added the engine to the cowling and cowling flaps in the open position. A little filler has been added to both wing roots and along the nose. There have been no fit issues and it has so far been a real joy to build.

I have also drilled out the formation lights, and will add the fairing over the unused bottom window. I have in isolation also assembled the undercarriage, and sprayed Zinc Chromate to the wing air/oil coolers and will fit when I get back to some building next weekend.

Thanks for looking.

Best Regards

Mark

Outstanding Scharnhorst Steve, it's an eye catcher. Inspirational to us would be ship modellers.

Cheers

That looks superb Steve. I see what you mean with the way the ripples the directions they're going. Divergent to the path of the ship sort of. Looks more realistic. Great job.

Looks great, Steve; very ship-shape and the sea base is a perfect setting.  Outstanding work, as we have come to expect from you!

I'll add it to the finished-build photos after you complete the plaque.

And just for information--I have to be at a convention till Tuesday, and I won't have access to a computer, so I won't be able to look in on things till I get home again.

Outstanding work all around, Mark.  Great looking engine and cockpit.

I haven't seen one of the D&S books in a looooong time.  I have one on the B-17; it was very useful.

Hadn't heard about the pink color used on Corsairs, so there's something new I learned.
