Dave: It's really not any more complicated than other ships, it's just the camouflage which is kind of complicated

Excellent work Jacob!

The camouflage pattern is especially good! All that masking was definitely worth the effort!

Thanks for all the nice comments.
I forgot to ask; I tried a new painting technique for the lower hull, which is supposed to make the red hull color look old and used, but what do you think? Does it work?
TIA
Jacob



I think it works very well, quite convincing. Al

Hi all
FINALLY!! This has been under way for some time now, and especially that camouflage paint job was a real killer. I've never done so much masking before.
It's the Trumpeter kit almost OOB, just used metal barrels from RB Models and made some of the mast parts from scratch and the rigging from fly binding thread.
Hope you like it and please do comment.
Jacob
