Hey guys,

Here's a small update on the progress. Superstructures are now mostly finished (railings will be added later on). Quite a few things were a bit tricky to build, for instance the little midship platform behind the RHIB crane (pic 1). While it's not perfect, I'm still happy with the result. I spent quite a bit of time sanding and correcting all the surfaces that did not match the original ship. Next up is the work on the bow and stern as well as all the PE.

Gtbred, I know exactly what you mean. My eyes definitely haven't gotten any better since the last time I was building. 1/350 would just take up too much space for me, so I'll be sticking to 1/700 :smallsmile:

Nektarios, I see you're building a few ships that I also have in my queue. Would be great to see some photos of your wip.

Hey guys,

Here's what I've been spending a few hours on so far. I decided to get back into it with an Aoshima kit of the JMSDF destroyer Takanami (DD-110).

I started with the aft superstructure by adding a few details and all the necessary platforms that the modernized ships of the class now have. Since the kit does not offer a hangar, I scratchbuilt one. Radomes, CIWS, antennas, railings and other equipment will be added later on. Apart from Aoshima's Takanami/Murasame photo-etch set, I also wanted to get my hands on one of BigBlueBoy's aftermarket MK-141 launchers. What can I say... I doubt it can get anymore detailed in 1/700 :shock:

:wave_1:


Excellent job. BigBlueBoy aftermarket sets are among the best sets offered today. They make a good kit superbly detailed.

Hey guys,

After a hiatus of a few years, I'm back at the workbench (it would be a shame to just mothball all those unbuilt kits I still have laying around).

Seems that quite a lot has changed over the last few years. Not only are there kits available to almost every modern navy ship type, but the number of aftermarket detailing sets and the quality is just mind-boggling.

I'm hoping this thread isn't dead yet because I would love to see what you guys are currently working on.

Hi Nektarios,

What PE sets did you use to complete this model, that BTW looks great?


I used a dedicated Pitroad PE set. I can t remember which set it is.
Thanks.

Seeing as I might be posting in here when I get the updated Dragon HMS Illustrious, I thought I would show my last 700 scale attempt - It is HMS Edinburgh a batch 3 type 42 called affectionatly Fortress of the Sea, well she was when she was still afloat - she has alas been scrapped a few years now.

Anyway just the two pics of her - please excuse the build quality as she was my first 700 scale build and was a bit tiny to work on back then prior to me current build equipment.

Hey Nek,
Man those ships look great, now that I have a new handle on my picture editing I can repost all those ships and subs I've needed to post for sometime now. Also, I'm still working on your Russian Victor I,II, &III's classes, got to get more resin material.

Take a look at my site for a similar undertaking.

I am building 1/350 scale Carrier Strike GRups and Amphibious GRoups for the US, the UK, Japan, France, China and Russia...with all of the escorts and all of them 1/350 scale (with a few 1/400 and a couple of 1/300).

http://www.jeffhead.com/modelbuilds/

Here are the carriers I have built to date:

USS Enterprise, CVN-65, Tamiya, 1/350
USS Ronald Reagan, CVN-76 (refit/rebuilt from Trumpete Nimitz), 1/350
USS Iwo Jima, LHD-7, by Gallery, 1/350
Russian Kuznetov 063, Trumpeter, 1/350
Chinese Liaoning, CV-16, Trumpeter, 1/350
French Charles de Gaulle, R91, 1/400
JMSDF Hyuga, DDH-181, Fujimi, 1/350
Brazil Sao Paulo, A12, from Heller Foch, 1/350

I have all the escorts for each, including SSNs.

I have the San Antonio Class, USS New York LD and one of the Chinese Type 071 LPDs.

Hey there Nektarios.
Dont know if you remember me but i asked a lot for help from you back in the days.
I grew up and bought a house (23 atm).
Finally got time and space to start what i want. And that is what you have haha.

Good to see you started again and i will follow you once again.
Hopefully i can build what you do.
If i need anything.can i ask you again?
