Thanks Derek/Gray, appreciate your support....

@Gray - yup, this is my very first venture into the world of plastic. A lot more challenging than I envisaged but have to say I'm thoroughly enjoying the experience.... Lots learned and lots still to learn.....Cool Cool

That is just amazing. The level of detail is breathtaking. The way this is going, it’s more like you get the plastic parts to go with the PE kit.
Excellent work Alan.Love Love

Thanks guys for all the positive comments, appreciated as always....Cool Cool

Continued with the etch work on the ships boats, completing the four transportation boats, three motor yawls, the admirals boat, two row cutters and a 1st class row yawl. These were fiddly little blighters but thankfully now they're done and ready for painting prior to final assembly. My next task is to start applying Mr Metal Primer to all of the etch work done so far, then I can get some priming done.... Until next time, happy modelling....Cool Cool

Regards

Alan

Looking well Alan. Those certainly look fiddly. I have just done them on Tirpitz albeit not as detailed as these.

Alan those little boats are amazing ,not a drop of glue in sight Love
Man he took his time in the sun
Had a dream to understand
A single grain of sand
He gave birth to poetry
But one day will cease to be
Greet the last light of the library...We were here!

Thanks Malc, appreciate the support....

Weather improved enough to enable some priming to be done, even managed to prime the hull ready for painting. So far, quite happy with how things are going and hopefully can now continue to get the hull painted up..... Happy modelling all....

Regards
