Congratulations on another fine addition to the Inman fleet MkII

Well worth a few for the commissioning ceremony!

For an odd looking bucket, she sure looks great!

Just wondering if you missed a bit of paint on the fore mast though as there seems to be some bare brass visible just below the observation platform?

Like Jan, I'm hoping/waiting for the 1/350 version before I take the plunge....

Hoping too that we will see some pics of those wing things



I had to remove the paint to get the mast through the hole in the PE. Forgot to paint it again.. oh well...

Thanks Mark and Jan.

Started a couple of wingy things for a break until my Bismarck project.

Warren,

what Mark says - she's a real beauty!! Despite all your problems on the way, you managed to overcome them and your Rodney is looking just splendid. (Still hoping/waiting for a 1/350 version in styrene...)

Cheers

Sounds like the Gremlins got into this one, Warren.

Best to wrap her up and move on!

Still, for closure, we'll need photos



OK OK.. When I get those last few things on next wekend... Gremlins indeed.

One big lesson was don't start a project until you have EVERYTHING you need.

Sorry but no photos yet. WHile attaching something yesterday I snagged part of the bridge area and two parts went flying... The main part I found but the smaller part seems to have disappeared forever..

This model seems to be jinxed and now I am just going to attach the masts and the deck railings and that's it. Put it in a dispolay case and go onto something more relaxing.. sigh...

Hi All.

Still doing the last 5% of the build that seems to take by far the longest time. Found out one major problem though, something somewhere has gone wrong as the third turret's guns are too long and prevent the turret going into the neutral position as the barrels hit the casement of the middle turret..

Oh dear... but I have come up with a very non-rivet counter solution which I will guarantee no one would notice if I didn't point the probelm out..

Cheers
Warren



I feel a challenge coming on.....LOL

Warren,

great to see an update - looks great! Sharp work, and all the detailing, the small boats, PomPoms, the whole superstructure! Very sweet! Makes me really want to build one, only I don't have the room, neither to build nor to display her in 1/200...

And agreed with the others, not feeling sorry either...

Cheers
Jan

Well I definitely enjoyed perusing this update, Warren

Really nice clean work!

And no, I don't feel sorry for you having to go to Sri Lanka and the Maldives



Woe always me.....

Greetings everyone.

After a rather long lapse I have a post for your perusal.

It is not that I have been doing nothing on the ship but just that there is so much to do! Thousands of parts and a paint supply problem until recently meant not much got done and it is taking a long time.

The hull is basically finished and now I am on the superstructure and gun turrets. Here are some shots of the superstructure assembly so far.















No big sticky-uppy aerials and masts up yet as I know they would probably get damaged if I did. It is bad enough that the funnel got damaged at some time and some of the detail has disappeared.

Anyway, I have one more weekend before I head off over seas to Sri Lanka and the Maldives so please don't feel too sorry for me..

Cheers
Warren

Anyone car to take a guess at the identities of the three?



after careful examination of the photo, I can honestly say that I believe them to be airplanes!



That's the most accurate answer so far...



Believe me, when I say, I agonized over it for a while



The three are Valom Albermarle, Italeri SM.82 (no fuselage so probably impossible to guess) and Roden Turbo Porter. All waiting for masks now and then I can paint.



Well, my guess would have been, from left to right, a U.S. B-26 Martin Marauder, a British "Mosquito" (based on the landing gear), and a German "Storch" (?).

I guess I need to go back to aircraft identification school!
