Peter really like this, one of the things I always struggle with is gluing tiny etch parts and getting it to look tidy. Photo 3 is incredible.

In photo 15, are those two potato lockers? 🙂

Sweet scratch building of the open hangar! 🙂

Thanks for the feedback. I also struggle with gluing tiny parts Mark, it feels like each one required at least three attempts 😩. Treehugger, if you are talking about the things on the right hand side of photo 15, these are flag lockers for signalling flags.

Hi Chris, nice project. Any more informations? It looks like you're building it out of the box?
And you paint with brush?

Chris Vandegrift
Hi Norbert thx! Yep, I'm building out of the box. My focus has been on learning some new techniques and trying them out. Primarily to paint the deck and make it look like wood. I'm using oil paints over a base of deck tan to attempt this part. The camo is all Vallejo paint sprayed with an airbrush. I plan to paint the searchlights and pompoms and the little stuff by brush. Easy to since since I'm using Vallejo Model Color paint.
tried a technique i thought up for the chipping on the hull. i used the lacquer paint for airbrushing. Thinking the very thin nature of it would allow it to be applied in a splotchy pattern. i poured some in a cup then dipped a sponge into it. Dabbed the excess off the sponge and applied it along the hull.
next i moved on to weathering the hull. Standard stuff here. It's alot about technique so i keep trying to get the hang of it. Oil paints used for rust, algae at and above the waterline, and a gray mix to establish the waterline and show some streaking down the hull. The red won't be seen much at all in the ocean scape i have set up, but for the few places it will show i rubbed the gray along the hull to try and fade the paint a bit.
Hope you enjoy the build. Feel free to critique or ask questions anytime.

The deck look great and the bow splash is novel too 😄 (Couple of the pic in the middle are upside down!)
