  1. Beautiful mate, maybe looking at this kit as another purchase. What was the build like ? Regards Robert.
  2. Hi Jeff any suggestions on a decent set of head mounted magnifying lenses, just wanting to avoid poor cheap stuff. Regards Robert.
  3. Thanks Jeff, Yes I tried using a free hands magnifying glass, but I didn't feel comfortable with it, I don't wear glasses normally, only for reading very small print, so I suffice with using them, but using them and a magnifying glass confuses the problem re brush distance to subject and etc, I am more accurate just using my reading glasses. However very early stages still and touch ups and the likes will obviously get done in time 😄
  4. Been held up with shift changes at work so I've had next to no time to start this kit. I've spent more time thinking about the colour scheme as the Box instructions and the 16th century painting are that far apart that its caused me a few headaches. I have only completed the stand and 1 side of the hull painting due to this but I suppose I've got started in some direction. And I thought painting triangles on the Hind and Revenge were time consuming these ones on the shields are only a couple of mm long very intricate on such a small scale hull.
  5. Hi Louie You are correct in that case, this particular flag being the "Lord Warden of Cinque Ports" I bought my Cloth Flags after sails from HISmodel as they look so much better than paper ones, just a shame you can't get Cloth flags for every kit out there. Best wishes Robert.
  6. Hi Bill More or less correct, I usually paint all my parts first, Hulls and on sprues, before any assembly, anything after this is just little touch ups if needed. I think it's better to do this with Galleons as there are usually a lot of intricate painting to be done which isn't very feasible if the assembly has already been done or at least it makes it harder to do imho. Hope this helps Bill mate
  7. Hi Everyone. My Next build I have opted to go for out of my stash is Vasco Da Gama's Flagship Carrack the " Santa Catarina do Monte Sinai" on his 3rd Voyage to Portuguese India in 1524. Although a smaller kit with the hull at 26cm with bowsprit and stern mast added the full length will be 41cm approx. This kit with its beautiful architectural moulding(photos below) has has the potential to be a little cracker. Albeit this is will take some time as there is a lot of very small articulate painting. I am also going to try and make New yards for the masts so I can make cloth sails for this,
  8. Thank you very much Gents 🤺🤺🤺🤺🤺⚓⚓⚓⚓⚓
  9. Hi Bill, Not sure at the moment as I have quite few to choose from in my stash, I may go for a french one or an early carrack, undecided at the moment mate. Any help you need and if I can I will help👍🤺🤺🤺⚓⚓⚓
  10. Thank you very much, I am touched that it brought back Happy memories for yourself.
  11. My English Man O'war Queen's Flagship Finished! Its been another labour of Love in difficult circumstances these past few weeks. I do have 40 figures for this kit, that I may add some at a later date if I decide to. All relevant comments are welcome as to what I could improve on or missed out, I am still a novice as to Historical accuracy although this kit doesn't relate to one Specific ship from history. Happy Modelling everyone and all the best of health and happiness to you all #staysafe 🤺🤺🤺🤺🤺⚓⚓⚓⚓⚓
