Danumurthi Mahendra (mdanumurthi)
Sovremenny 670. Trumpeter kit not the easiest kit, add some generic PE to make it look better.

How is the fit of the ship? It is looking just great.

looks very good, also the weathering... subtle, not to much, very good... More detailed pictures are more than welcome

Sangat bagus Danumurthi! Like the overal looks and the weathering. I would also like to see some detail pictures.

@Blaubar - fit was mediocre the most. lost of sanding and dry fitting. Sprue gates were thick at the most and need careful when cutting them off.

Very nice build, the shading is my fav part of it (it makes the kit much more realistic)

okay, so it seems that all their larger part kits are ###. Was just curious if they manage to have anything without massive ejector marks, bad fitting and not much grate and misalignment.

Plenty of that @Blaubar here. amazing. I think a lot of time I lost my mojo. because its just excessive clean-up. bits of putty here and there. drives me nuts. it was hard to look at it and go back to work.

too bad of that, but it's a beautiful ship... wanted to use this one to practice building ships

Agreed Dan, I have come up with the magic Trumpeter formulas: 1/2T(workhours)=S(scratching) 2/5T=C(cleaning and filing hours)^^ I am impressed how you managed to keep the mojo up. The kits could be so awesome if just a bit more attenion would be paid.

@Blaubar LoL on the formula. I only wish I had donned this 110%. I have only added generic PE railings. If I had opted a complete set with rigging and whip antennas, it might look a lot different.

Looks very, very well!

I missed this one back in the day. Nice job. You are certainly a multidisciplinary builder....and do great on all of them

I fully agree with Spanjaard!

Much thanks, @C.B., @Spanjaard, and @Neuling! I try to mix it up a bit to keep me motivated.

I have a similar kit to be built. I wonder if it might be possible to place some transparent sheet of plastic at the bridge windows, or if the windows then becomes too deep. I can't imagine working with individual window sheets, but instead using a large foil for all the window surfaces.

I'm on the missed out before boat too... Great work! The weathering is wonderful!

Hi Danumurthi, now Comes something different from you but again beautiful executed.
27. June 2019, 06:35
Thanks @Chris Greathouse and @Holger Kranich! @Treehugger - yes very possible with thin transparent plastic sheets that you can buy at office supply stores.

Very nice one Monti. You're a true "allrounder".
Boats, Tanks, Planes. And you master all of them.
