WEM 1:700 HMS Sussex

This is my WEM 1:700 HMS Sussex in 1942 fit. Master machined brass barrels were used for primary and secondary armament. The radar arrays and Pom-Poms were sourced from Lion Roar PE. Especially the Type 281 masttop aerials were oversized and needed replacement. Said replacement was terminally iffy to work with and would have cost me any amount of grey hairs, if I still had any other shade.
The ship´s boats were replaced by 3D printed items by designer Micro Master, highly recommended!
Stynylrez primer and mostly Vallejo paints were used, the camo blue is Xtracrylix PRU blue. Weathering exclusively with artist´s oils.

Jim J Fantastic schiff! What's not to like? I really like the details that bring the scene to life - the boats tied up, the anchor chain, outstanding camouflage, and subtle weathering along with the water effect of course contribute to making this a masterpiece. Congratulations.
