Any of them. Did you use the PE or streight out of the box?

 

 

Everything in this build was OOB. Although trumpeter did include a small amount of PE parts. I didnt want to pay extra for PE parts on my first actual model. Now i do have the Eduard cranes and railings PE kit for my KGV.

Good. Now that PE set for your KGV will have PE for the Pom Poms, 8 of them I believe. They are little buggers to build.

She is about done. Still have a little bit of painting to do, and touching up some paint in a few spots. Also need to add the second crane, and paint the spotting plane and it on the ship too. Should be done 100% in the next week or 2 and then I will be starting on the KGV.

Thats a lovely looking ship there Matthew, looks like similar colours to my belfast but more complicated pattern. Very nicely done.

Now we just need a 350 kit of the new Elizebeth.

Thanks Bish, means a lot coming from a great modeler as yourself! Waiting on a couple paints to paint the spotting plane, then I need to mount the plane to the ship, add the 2nd crane, and touch up a few areas on the paint. I painted this entire ship by hand and am quite happy with how it turned out!

 

And the new Elizabeth, meaning the Aircraft Carrier? That would be a cool kit to build! The KGV build will be taking off soon!

Excellent job Matt! I'll get you up on the wall soon. Looking forward to that KGV

 

PS, I got you up with your quote.

Grab a badge of your choice if you want. Just copy it to a file and transfer it to your hosting site, then you can put it in your sig line if so desired.

That's it Matt. Once you get more badges, you can display them with a GIF file so they will cycle through and not take up a lot of bandwidth. Some guys copy all of their badges on say a Word document, then turn that into a .jpg file to put on their sig line.

Now I have a German ship GB starting in just 2 months, so you may want to jump into that one as well. The rules will be the same...two years to enter but it goes forever.

Steve, sounds good! I should have the KGV done by then hopefully! I will for sure jump in on the German Ship GB. I have been wanting to do the tirpitz, or the bismark and prinz eugene combo. I will decide when the KGV nears completion.

The PE will make those boats look good.

I like the DC racks

Hi MC,

I'm just finishing the USS Midway for the American Flag GB. I'd like to add a 30% finished HMS Compass Rose corvette to my entry and will try to finish it before I tackle Discovery.

I look forward to working next to Rob. His version will be after her refit that included a longer focsle, and radar.

Mine will be as launched.

I happen to have 2 in my stash, recently acquired Stick out tongue so before the final ships bell clangs on this GB signup let's add:

British Battleship Prince of Wales

Tamiya | No. 78011 | 1:350

 

 

British Battleship King George V

Tamiya | No. 7310 | 1:350

 

They are so similar maybe it'll turn into a side by side build later this Fall!

In the pattern: Scale Shipyard's 1/48 Balao Class Sub! leaning out the list, we're down to a Monogram 1/72 SR-71 and that Tamiya P-38F/G to use the other nose art Exito Decal (in-flight for this one), & in keeping with MC's hydra theory I bought another F-5E to do in FROG camo! And I just got a Trumpeter 1/32 F/A-18F!

Excellent Chris, I'll put them down. 

Yeah, there's just over a month before the gangplank is pulled, but there's still no end date to finish.

I received the 3D Pom Pom's from France a couple of weeks ago. They look good.

Yeah, I am too. I was planning on the Bismarck after I found the super detail set from Pontos. VERY expensive but it's worth it, if you can find it.

The Z-38 will be on the list as well as the Graf Spee.

One of these days I'll get the Scharnhorst.
