Here is one more pic. Have a compressor situation - need to buy a new one, so things are a bit on hold but at least I got this better shot showing the level where were at. Im gonna paint decks next since thats ok to do by hand for now. A bit slowed back by lack of anchor chains also and i drilled out the hawese pipes too much so need to fill these up a little.

Looking sharp! What are you doing with the deck for the wood effect? For some reason I though you were using a wood deck.

This is my interpretation of Hoods deck as sunk. Hope you like it, feedback welcome. Getting this part done encourages me to keep on building.

Should I lighten it up? or it is ok this dark? Feedback welcome!

Here is the latest progress. Painted the decks, added anchor chains, and lower deck is prepped for PE and railings.

Put it next to my Bismarck just to see the comparison.

Update time:

Have restarted work on the mighty hood after few months away from it.

Got back to rebuilding the admirals bridge and installed splinter shields. As for the upper platform ladder openings I probably dont do anything. Just not worth the hassle, Id rather focus the time on getting the paint right and rigging and such. Im not so thrilled on funnels though not sure the extras from shapeways at 20 bucks worth it, nice as they are. However they are quite prominent...

Update on superstructure... Coming along nicely, need to clean up the putty, lower the shields a bit and start building the upper mast itself. Installed ladders etc... hard to work in this scale but also fun.

used PE for main superstructure, and some small wires to simulate all the tubes running along it in real life. its may be a little messy but I think its ok. 1/700 needs to look right from 50 cm away!

As for starfish / I know it is out of scale with those supports but I have looked carefully at the alternative in PE and it looked like a nightmare to build. So some sacrifices are made. :cool_1:

I decided that the starfish in this scale just didnt pass the test. So... cue an hour and half build of one out of PE.

Result! Im much happier now with how it looks. It is a major component of the ship and I figure that now it looks right. Also fairly sturdy. gonna double proof it with some diluted PVA glue and then paint time!

Dude, I bought your funnels and turrets, didnt I? From shapeways. Very cool! Thank you.

Completed the Main mast PE (though the top platform Im not sure which way should look, front or back... probably back but too late to change. :)

Awaiting now for secondaries and funnels from Shapeways. Current ones look so crude I figure I might as as well upgrade further. I seriously would not recommend this kit in current shape.


And few shots of current state of affairs...

Trying now to figure out how many boats need to be covered with canvas. Thoughts and tips?


Most recent WIP shots are below. Tried to simulate hull plating with paint build up on the bow as well and painted the main superstructures. Lots more to go...

Final pic before holidays. Ill have to take some proper non iphone ones at one point as High ISO settings arent so impressive on a big screens...

To do list includes
* PE railings
* PE pom-poms and rocket launchers
* PE ladders here and there
* derricks to be scratch built.

I used 3D printed parts for the following:
* Main guns
* Secondary guns
* Funnels

After that some weathering and rigging. A fun build taken more than 6 months but its come together more or less by now and im happy I went super detailed flyhawk on it as I havent seen many dont this way before. cheers!
