I can see why you have not been posting lately! that is a lot of work that has been done since the last update. Not enough time to build, photograph and then post an update. Crying

The tiled gallery floor is a very nice touch.
Keep them pictures coming.

Hi, a bit of an update: BigGrin

I have never been quite happy with the way the build and my way of doing the gun ports, I thought they looked a bit big and were not quite even enough for my liking!! so when I awoke this morning I thought I would have another look at them: Blink



So I found some 10x10mm evergreen and went to work !



So First I made sure that the tube sat in the ports already done, cut of a 5mm wide piece and glued into the port



I then back filled and sanded back



Then Painted Red Ochre as per!

Overall I am very happy with the result, so I whipped a bit of paint round them to get the full effect!





So I just got the rest to do now as well as tidying my bit of painting up (it was a bit of a rush job) and of course the copper plating!!


Plating So Far and Bits & Pieces









Happy Building, Russ

Hi Russ! Cool

Now that using your head, a very crafty idea mate! ThumpUp

I think we will see others doing that with the gun ports what a way to save time and you get a good finish too! nice work with the copper tiles Russ! I'm look forward to seeing the finished hull.

Just took delivery of issues 87 to 114 from my newsagent so got a lot to be getting on with!, will post some piccies later today. BigGrin
