Hi Guys. I decided to do another OOB before my next Large Build. I used Tamiya's new Washes on Fletch and they work very well. This is the Fletcher at about 75% complete. Will have some more Pics up soon.....Cheers Mark

OK the Fletch is now done and dusted. Lots of Washes and Drybrushing brought her details out very well. I used Tamiya's new line of Washes. They come in Black, Brown and Grey. Very happy with the results. Any C and C's are most welcome.....Cheers Mark

Great job on Fletcher, OOB. My only observation is that, as I understand it, the ship's boats would be in cammo colors, inside and out. But I'm not 100% on this.

Hi Mark, nice build. Bob is right on the life boats though, should be in the camo scheme.
Cheers,

Nice build Mark,

The washes certainly bring out the detail. Might give then a try myself.
