Tamiya king George v
« on: April 23, 2018, 03:58:22 AM »
Hi all I was given this and the Bismark for a Christmas pressie from my daughter and son I bought what i thought was the pe for this kit (which cost more than the kit and I now discover is still not the full pe for it, i will buy the rest but just have to wait a bit) so I was thinking I quite like the pics by Eduard and pontos (others are availiable) of the pe on the finished ship with no paint on it and was thinking maybe I would do that with just a slight difference being I would weather the pe but leave it unpainted. What do you all think, I quite like the pe showing I think it adds interest(i know it's not very accurate but let's face it I'm pretty rubbish with this modelling lark and I very seldom build as per the instructions anyway.
So here is my start on this build




Made a start on the decking (Will be using pastels for the decking this is just the base coat.

If you're rubbish at modelling, I'm pathetic & should take up something like rock hammering*!



*Rock hammering = hold hammer in preferred hand, put rock on ground, hit rock with hammer, try not to injure self too severely.

That rock hammering is tricky stuff so many problems to over come wind resistance, trajectory, force. Its way over my pay grade, good luck with that.

I find selecting the correct hammer the hard bit.
If I don't plan it, it can't go wrong!

If it's great, I did it. If it's naff, I found it.

Yep, that'd be my speed! Probably with the same facial expression, too. ;D

Thats how i look when im really concentrating ( which performing such a complex task i would be)
Well im a bit annoyed with eduard.
I started putting the pe portholes on and got 10 done and thought hang on theres something wrong here ( they give you 50 pe portholes) counted down one side theres 63 (it does say optional parts) optional or not they should at least supply enough for the job. And now im thinking about it what about all the pprtholes on the super structure.
When i built the warspite i had loads of parts left on tge sprue that wernt mentioned anywhere in tge instructions ive since discovered they were ment to be portholes they look a bit different to the ones eduard supply but maybe i will use them.
I managed to get the portholes off without damaging the paintwork too much. As i say maybe i will try the warspite ones will have a count up and see if theres enough.

Hi all well I've done the decking and weathered the hull.

I'm surprised how much bigger this is than the warspite she also quite a bit wider.

That's strange I've changed nothing but elsewhere I've had this said not sure how to get round it as I can see the pics so I can't tell if others can't it only seems (so far to be on 2 forums and even then not on all posts)
