This is my attempt at HMS Badsworth in 1/700. Replaced the main armament, Pom-Pom, and Oerlikons, Carley floats with Flyhawk items. Added some left over PE from WEM, et al.















Criticisms welcome.

I am inclined to agree with the other Biggs...beautifully done! Camo looks fantastic as does the overall build! I also like the weathering! Only critique is this should have a water base now! Well done my friend!

Great work! I don't how you do it in that scale but the effect is very impressive. I guess from your previous work the water base can't be far away.

cheers

Thanks for liking! I always build on a temporary base like that so I can safely handle the model without actually touching it. Haven't decided yet if it's going to be a stand alone display, or paired with another ship.
