Holger Kranich Wow Will, that was a hard way to go to build her. The casting was "not good"... ;) But a very nice ship you have there!
28. March at 13:30:30
Bart Goesaert This will be a ship when finished with a building story... no shake and bake, but you've done a very nice job...
28. March at 15:02:43

Given the major inaccuracies of the Bronco 1/200 Ningbao DDG (Sovremenny) for the actual PLAN version, has anyone considered just building as the Russian version as that appears to be the actual kit?

Will Dossel This is a very trying kit to work with. Much patience required.????

Will Dossel Clearly I have a bit of a challenge out of the box. Originally intended to be displayed in classic style, the bubble bath fest lower hull is driving me to a seascape display
21. January at 00:35:46
Ben M can't you just putty it? I haven't built a resin kit before.
21. January at 01:05:38
Michael Hickey Yeah a bit of Milliput and sanding will take care of those issues real quick.
21. January at 01:11:59
Will Dossel putty for resin is different than styrene - the best actually is Bondo auto body filler. In this case it is also pernicious that I'm just pressing ahead with seascape instead and will team with another contemporary AAW ship
21. January at 20:08:28
Will Dossel UPDATE - DECKHOUSE REPAIR
Iron Shipwrights DDG 6 Build...and right outta the box we have issues
-warped mainmast and support structure — scratchbuild new one
- bubbles in hull (lower side) - display in water diorama instead of full hull display
- chunk missing out of deckhouse - scratchbuild repair
- most of the small pieces are unrecognizable junk, so off to the aftermarket for suitable replacement parts. SMDH, nonexistent QA I guess...

Completed 1:1 drawing of replacement piece using instructions, photos and calibrated eyeball. used thin plastic to lay a foundation that replacement could lay on that relievies stress applied to the repair joint. It also filled a gap between the two deckhouses because i found the upper one was, surprise, warped....

19. January at 19:56:34
Maciej Bellos A full resin kit is something I want to see.
19. January at 23:27:45
Will Dossel Other than some warpage in the front section, the most annoying items were the clear piece fits and the guns. Otherwise went together quickly and well, convincing me to try a couple of the larger kits they offer (IL-38 & KJ-200)

12. January at 18:22:08
Will Dossel really 1/144 resin kit....
12. January at 18:30:04
Thomas Bischoff :) 1:144 is not easier! Would be watching this also!
12. January at 21:30:25
Will Dossel some minor warppage in nose section fixed with superglue and tape. "Ok" assemblage thus far, primer ready
14. January at 21:27:47
Nathan Dempsey I'd love to have this one in either of those scales!
14. January at 21:36:24
Will Dossel I should also note this is the first model in decades i am painting solely by hand.
14. January at 23:09:20
Thomas Bischoff you mean you go for brush painting?
15. January at 21:18:00
Will Dossel Normally, no. In temp quarters while waiting for new house to be built so limited resources. Given that and 1/144 scale thought I'd give it a shot, let it cure then finish off with fine mesh surface prep prior to decals and dullcote.

Will Dossel hi all and thanks for the comments. A quick word about my projects - I am in the midst of a major display project for a Navy warfighting development center that ultimately will have 200+ singles or dioramas displaying the evolution of air threat to naval forces and the response, and then today's threat through the next 5 years. Those builds are included here and I will showcase these as i go along.
The A-6 is part of my personal display and will be tied in with my CVN-69 project where i build Trumpeters 1/350 Nimitz as IKE for my first deployment off Iran in 1980. Displayed in 1/48 scale will be reps from CVW-7 including my squadron, VAW-121 Bluetails (1979-1982) and this example, an early A-6E of VA-65 Tigers (need decals in high vis!)configured for an alert 15 SUCAP. With no Harpoon in 1980 surface strike was a combined A-6/A/7 evolution with A-6 carrying the big @ss Standard ARM and Rockeye/APAM or LGBs and A-7 w/Shrike ARM, Walleyes and/or Mk82 dumb bombs (no GPS the). When i came back for my 2nd sea tour w/VAW-126 on JFK/CVW-3 in 1985, my toolset for shipkilling as an airing strike lead had dramatically expanded to include HARM and HARPOON, the latter available not only with my A-6's, but by the dopen via B-52Gs from Griffis AB to go after adv threats like the KIROV CGN. That will be a future A-6 build :)
9. January at 13:05:16
Patrick Hagelstein That's something for sure! 200+? Wow....
