Hi there mate, sounds like you are doing that same as me, get more peace in the bedroom, I will be waiting for issues three and four before I get stuck into HMS Victory, also gives me a chance to get my modelling tools together that had been lying dormant in the shed these past six months since I was working on the Cutty Sark, still got some work to do on that? Oh well, good luck on you model, take care now.BigGrin

My station will be in a spare bedroom, which is like quest room/office. There is a small computer desk, but should be big enough for work on Victory. The place for the model in between building sessions, most probably, will be on the top of the shelf. There might not be enough space for the masts, however. We shall see what to do then. I will buy tools as and when.

I know what you mean krisdevalnor, I have got my work area close to my PC which will be handy for me should I need to do some research or keep in touch with this web page as some of the lads on here seem to have some pretty handy tips and advice, I hope that all goes well with you on your construction, take care now and happy modelling

Morning shipmates, does anybody know what colours this particular build of HMS Victory has? I have not got round to acquiring the paints as yet, and I want to get everything shipshape before I start, and considering that there is some painting from the word go on this construction which makes it all the more interesting, I want to be sure that I have literally everything at hand? Then I can shut myself away in the bedroom batten down the hatches, haul up the gangplank away from all the family confident that I need not re-appear until the necessary work has been done?Laugh

Shipwrights.com has a Victory paint pack for about £25. DeAgostini reckons there will be a paint kit option to acquire and details will be posted in the thread on this forum but no timescale yet...

Hi Horatio's Eyepatch, thank you very much for the information, I shall check it out as soon as I can. I looked at the DeAgostini shop but could not see anything related to HMS Victory regarding paints, and seeing that we will be painting so early in the build, I would have thought that there would be something available in the decor field. Thanks again mate. John..BigGrin

There is already a lot of information on the forum about colours.

You've done a great job there over the last few days Colin, I'm jealous at how well organised it looks BigGrin If I had to build a workstation from scratch like that I'd still be building it after the magazine subscription finished LOL

Hi Cliff

It looks frightenly well organised, I have just looked at my workspace where I am putting Halifax together and feel positively ashamed!!Crying

I like the idea of the foam(?) blocks to hold the tools. I'm sure I just thrown out a lot of that when I was told tidy the garage!!

Which reminds me, did you ever ask the wife about black and yellow ochre for the external sides of your new domain??
