If you build a Kingfisher you could swap over occaisonally.

Will you be printing the rest of the ship or are you staying with the turret hehe.

David, I think my wife might have something to say about that🙂, but hey maybe when the kids leave home.

Outstanding and inspirational. Great build gallery. Thanks for sharing Mark. Two 3D printers must be a game-changer?

Hi Gary, because they print using 2 different methods they compliment each other really well. The fda printer is great for larger models, that don't need such high resolution. The sla printer is ideal for small high res items, but is much slower.

Good use of 3d printer, not to replace a (Walrus) kit but adding nice parts around for a unique display. Fantastic project!
You should mention the ship name somewhere 😉

Mark Broughton
Bughunter I have already started making some covers for the foam, in grey acrylic using image transfer paste to put the name on the front. I will post some pics when I get home from work.

Very creative. No need to wait for a specific kit to augment a project anymore. Your paint work and weathering is also very good.

I am just blown away by this build. It's amazing! Curious how many hours do you have invested thus far?
8 March, 15:38
Mark Broughton
Thanks to everyone who has commented, it's very much appreciated.

Alex it's been a lot, but there have been big gaps where I didn't work on it so I'm really not sure. My wife got seriously ill last year, so modelling took a back seat for a while.

Dietmar Bogatzki
Absolute fantastic in every way Mark 👍
8 March, 16:37
Alec K
Thanks Mark. I would be surprised you are under 1000 hours. Hope your wife is getting better 👍

Alec you are probably right there with 1000!!! Also my wife has made a full recovery, luckily we live within 30 minutes of one of the top Neurological units in the UK and they saved her life.

Cheers Capt Bellinger 👍

Lovely work space you got
And a very impressive build
I would love to have all your toys
Sad to say if I had them I wouldn't know how to use them
But thanks for sharing
And will look forward to see the rest of the build

I just wanted to add my own great admiration for this Mark. You are obviously a highly skilled modeller. I am interested in seeing the integration of new tech with old tech; as this is similar to my working day to day. And I too am also extremely jealous of your availability of such a clean working habitat! 😜 Kudos to you for completing and showcasing a highly enjoyable and informative album 👏

Just opened my latest copy of Airfix Model World and saw this amazing build featured in the Display Case section. I recognised it immediately and came straight here to double check. Inspirational stuff Mark. 👍
