I think the PE looks amazing. At 1/350 it does make a difference.

Hi all loads still to add to this part, slow going but I do feel I'm getting there









I will admit due to my abysmally poor modelling skills I've missed some pe out, as a bit of fun can you spot out the bits I've missed out.

I think PE is pretty much beyond my ability now so I can't see me buying any more.

The PE details that you have added to the ship's boats makes them look 1000% better than the kit bits.  I had to go back and look at the topic title to make sure this was not a larger scale kit than the actual 1:350th scale.  The wood deck sections also make this a very attractive model.  Bravo Zulu! :)

Blame it on the bifocals then.  :)

HELL NO! :o

Hold your wooden deck painting skill set high to inspire mere mortals & guide them to the light of self-painted decks, rather than the dark arts of wooden deck decals! :icon_meditation: :icon_alabanza:

Hi all here is the next update,
This sub assy is finished (well as much as I'm prepared to do) I like the unpainted brass standing out against the weathered painted parts, i just wish I had the skills to use all the PE (although to be honest I don't think you would notice the bits I've left out)
