Youse guys are too kind.

Not to steal the OP's thunder, just noodling out loud here. This was my first build/kitbash after a 15 year or more hiatus, using parts from the LINDBERG Blue Devil destroyer based very very loosely on the gunboats of the 1895-1925 period.

In retrospect I think it looks a bit anemic now. I've since given it away but if I had the opportunity, I'd give the superstructure a coat of cream/tan and maybe a very light brown wash on the decks (to suggest teak planking).

That's coming along great Chuck and the new canopy/rear turret really changes the look for the better!

That looks great Mr Gimper and I like your work on the ventral pannier.

Those are lovely little details and make this project all the more impressive :smiley:

Also, your description of the build process is encouraging for us who are daunted by the idea of tackling our stash - in the end, it doesn't require all your time to get fantastic results!

Well put, Kemola!

Those are some fantastic models and it's a real treat to scroll through them.

Very old Airfix Beaufighter with large scratch built ventral pannier.  New wings from equally old Airfix Mosquito.  Worse landing gear assembly/design ever!
