just finished forward superstructure.Thought of turning the main turrets a bit to add more drama to the scene.

Hi AE, great work on the Bismarck. Love the sea.

I notice that you finish the hull and main decking and then place the ship on the finished sea base. I find this interesting as I tend to do things the other way around when I am putting a ship on a sea base, ie: I finish the whole ship and then mount her on the base. Do you find working on the superstructure and other structures (guns, masts, etc) easier when the model is alread attached to a base? Would welcome your thoughts.

Since i am putting all my models on a base of some sort of (stand alone or in a dio) it helps me proceed in a structure way building from bottom to top.I like it that way cause when i am concentrating on smaller superstructure details --like PE railings etc-- i can handle the model much safer ,since its stuck on the base and it feels more robust and bulky than if it were on its own,since am working on so many models at the same time some may stay in that half-finished stage for months and its safer for them to be on a base rather than floating around in some box. It also helps me to avoid manhandling the model constantly with the result of causing minor damages and leaving fingertips on it once is painted.Besides i like to get a glimpse of what the model will look like on display as early as possible in the building process, its sort of keeps my motivation levels up to see it finished it.Last since i also making a perspex case for them if they are on a base from the early stages i built the case first thing so they can remain protected from dust no matter how long it would take me to built them.Remember dust wont wait till you finish a model to start accumulate on it.

Thanks for that insight AE - it's intereting to see how other modellers approach their work.
