Looking great!  Does the kit include any PE, or are there aftermarket PE sets on the market?

Started painting the hull and some other bits on 1/450 QE2.

Just also blackened all the portholes on the white area of the hull.

Brilliant!

 

Thanks Steve. 

1/450 QE2 is as done as I’m gonna make it. It was a quick project, a little over 3 weeks and in some places it shows lol. I’m satisfied with it for a rush job. Biggest issue was I broke off the tiny piece of mast that holds the rigging….after it was rigged. Even though it’s crooked I’m lucky I got the glue to hold it back on at all.

Thanks, yeah it was a really quick build. For some reason I didn't have much patience in detailing her...lots of other things on my mind. She's the last true liner IMO. I used to think she was too modern when I was younger but my opinion has changed. I think I miss the multiple standard looking funnelled ships but those days are long gone. I thought the original Queen Elizabeth was one of the nicest looking ships ever made. Now that I'm old I appreciate the QE2's, Frances, and United States era liners.

Thanks. The red is Tamiya TS-33 Dull Red, the green is Tamiya TS-78 Field Gray, and the decks are a mix I made up of several Tamiya paints. Sorry I don't remember the exact amounts I used to get the deck color. I tried to keep it on the lighter side. I think I used mostly Tamiya XF-55 Deck Tan,Tamiya xf-80 Royal Light Gray, and a touch of Tamiya XF-78 Wooden Deck Tan. I believe there were others but I don't remember.
