Thank you guys! The pencil lets me get a more defined outline of each plank.

Great job on the funnel! :thumbs_up_1:

The deck looks good too! I wonder though, what are the advantages of pencil over a classic enamel or oil paint wash?

Some deck progress. Once I'm done with the highlights I will mist coat it to tone down the pencil:

Thank you Alex and Harpy! I use laquer thinner. I put the thinner in the air brush and scope some paint in and mix it up. Do not let the thinner get in the main paint or it will spoil. I mean to try their thinner at some point.

Really nice Joe. There is a good "Nazi Mega Weapons" on the Yamato on PBS. What thinner are you using for the Colorcoats, and what ratio? I get some grain when spraying them.

I had done some work on the main AA observation platform months ago, and have just completed it. I used K&A brass for the wooden overlay and Veterans binoculars:

Thanks Gewoon! I snipped them with a sharp razor on a hard surface. It worked well.

Turrets and secondaries look good mate, and very neat and tidy glueing of the railings, well done. What do you think of that Tamiya 'etch'? I personally found it dreadfull, especially sanding down the attachment points gave me headaches :heh:

Keep up the good work!
