Here is my progress so far in my gallery:

http://gallery3.kitmaker.net/showgallery.php/cat/30903

I got the Artwox wood deck, this is my second ship with a wooden deck, and I wont do a ship model in the future without one. it really makes it pop.

the Master 6 in guns replaced the kit ones, those I haven't taken a picture of yet.

I think im a little off on the dark blue/grey on the side, but its too late now to change it!

Very nice work,

The dark blue / grey looks fine to me. With RN Camouflage colours don't get too hung up as they were variations of the same shade, depending where refits took place and what was available. They had a system called TLAR (That looks about right).

Agee with you regarding decks, always use one when I can, especially on anything of that size or bigger.

Cheers

Si
