HMS Pegasus by Blue Ensign - FINISHED - Victory Models - 1:64 scale

Hi Paul,

 

I didn't coat the plates I wanted them to gain a natural patina over time.  I was careful when handling the model not to touch the plates with my bare hands.

 

Cheers,

 

B.E.

Hi B.E.

 

As I've mentioned before, I often dip into your Pegasus log for ideas and inspiration. As my own project nears completion (well, just the running rigging to go so it must be nearly done?!) I've been reminded of your display case. I'm also looking for a clear case with no obstructing frames. My own research turned up a few potential suppliers in the UK, amongst which I thought Display Cases International looked the likeliest. Before I take the plunge, would you mind sharing your supplier and your impression of their product (it certainly looks great in your photos)? 

 

Thanks

 

Derek

The photo book was a wonderful idea B.E. It is something that can be shared with others when discussing your beautifully presented finished model. It makes your build quite tactile for others.

Thanks Wallace, it is nice to have a hard copy album of build progress photo's to flick thro' rather than sit at the desk top.☺️

Absolutely! I did the same thing for three seperate vacations the Admiral and I went on. It's nice to sit in a comfortable spot and reminisce.
