My fellow bunch mates. I thank you for your most kind comments. I also thank you all to have guided me through this build with your encouraging words. Your comments helped me a lot during the building process and in a certain way, HMS Hood is also your achievement. Almost impossible to thank you all one by one, but consider this comment as a personal word to all of you separately. Thank you guys

James, nice to know you follow the build. Drop a post whenever it it convenient, mate

Rui, I agree it is only now you can see the purpose of the camouflage. It is not ignorance, it just takes time to see it. Nice to hear you've noticed the hull weathering

David, thank you for your comment

Looking great in color, weathering spot on regarding the historic context... 👍

@Rui - I am thinking about this pattern everytime I see it & I think the real purpose was not to make the ship appear shorter (just would not work given the proportions with the turret positions), but to make it appear angled and thus throw off the rangefinding, shells being set too short/wide due to assumed relative closing/parting distance... may be wrong though, no evidence to back it up 🙂

Lode, between you and Kezza doing subs I may just restart my Atlantic U Boot!
28. July, 07:14
Lode Schildermans
That woud be nice. I must have somewhere around a type IX in my stash. Building a sub was a real pleasure for me between the more complex builds battleships are. Ans still a Ferrari to do. I'll come for tips and tricks when I start that one

Nice to see this one again Lode 👍

Lode Schildermans
You're welcome James. I didn't delete this album by purpose. It was thanks to Spanjaard that I got a reminder of this lost album, and viewing the comments, I restored the album that was still stored on my laptop

Gary Kitchen
Wow. Just took a spin through that entire album and my mind is blown. Your PE skills are spectacular. Hats off to you sir. What's the significance of the random street scene photo though?

Slavo Hazucha
Ah, the Bismarck trophy winner is back!!

Great to have this "little gem" back on screen! 👍 I was already afraid a museum or a rich collector made you an offer and took it with image rights & co...😉
11. February, 14:33
Lode Schildermans
Gary, thank you for your compliments. Well, ships in 1/200 have some extended PE sets, such as Rodney. And the significance of the random strees photo is just an error (which I corrected after your notice)
11. February, 22:18
Lode Schildermans
Slavo, no way that I donate it to a museum (that's for my kids) and surely not a rich collector. Within a few weeks, my 1/200 should be ready so I can finally unbox again the Rodney

Lode. I just came across this article as I was 'surfing' around that you may or may not have seen. But interesting as a "What if." 🙂 Kezza. 👍 Youtube Video

Kerry, thank you for the link.

Drachnifel has indeed some nice stories on youtube. I saw this one and there are followers and opposants to this refit. IMHO it is only hypothetical, she would never have the time during the war for a refit as de QE class received. Even if she would have survived the war, she would have been needed.
Hood reveils her magnificant lines in het dreadnought look, but I am quite fan of the block towers, invented by the RN, and copied by other naval forces (the first were the Nelson class)

I'm glad you share it with me.

Greetz, mate

Lode. Thanks for your feed back on this subject. I just HAD to pass it on to you, knowing how much the HOOD has enthralled you for all these years.
Well my friend. I want to wish you a wonderful 2021 and I pray you stay safe and wear a mask.
Love and peace to you and yours my friend. Cheers.
Kezza Roo. 🙂 👍

I'm listening to Drach's videos when I want to go to sleep after a day of work... 🙂 In case I fall asleep = job done - in case not, good stuff to listen to... 😄

Those more interesting, I use to put on while driving to work. Which I haven't been doing too much, lately... :/

Hi Slavo. I have been pretty slack with my hobby of late. Not much ability to get out for some fresh air (A thing of the past with this virus hanging around. 🙁 ) but I cant hack sitting in the one place for too long, as I get pretty stiff in a short time (My age really), so I surf the net looking for something relating to hobby items I havent discovered yet and I am finding some really interesting stuff on You tube. ! 👍
I do hope your staying safe over there. All modelling comps and promotional gigs have come to a grinding halt. :-/
I should imagine there will be some stunning items up for everyone's viewing when this pandemic is over. Much anticipation. !! hahahahaha 🙂 Happy New year and catch you later.
(Wear your mask............................at ALL times.) !

Thank you James. I always liked this ship. Yet the album of HMS Howe to restore and it crosses my mind to do another KGV-class battleship

And the old avatar. Ah, the good old times!
24. November 2020, 06:14
great to see this beauty again 🙂
24. November 2020, 09:08
I always liked the looks of this ship class. 🙂 Never got around to buy the Tamiya kit.

Very nice seeing the signal flags and all on the model. 🙂
24. November 2020, 14:29
Lode Schildermans
Well Martin, build in the good ol' times when I didn't do weathering, no figures,... when it was all fun 😉
Spanjaard, the pleasure is all mine
Treehugger, you're not the only one. I always had (and have) in mind doing all five of them

Martin Oostrom
I don't understand how buying kits could be the problem 😄
But then I have 5 Black Friday kits en route from Poland 😉
