  1. Nice work greg - looking well and truly battered like she has been sat in a ships graveyard for years. OC.
  2. Hi there can I take a seat - this looks interesting as I did a few 1/72 scale kits years and years ago including the Vosper Motor boat and a German Torpedo boat similar to this but both Airfix. OC.
  3. Thank You for all the very nice comments its a condition that alas will only get worse as its a family ill past down from my late mother's side, just gets in the way and causes at best a constant ache in both hands and at worse pain and stiffness. As I use my hands for all my hobbies - model making, photography and recording keyboard music, its very frustrating. OC.
  4. Folks I just wanted applogize for the lack of work on my build, to be honest I am battling painful hands at the moment as I suffer from an Arthritic condition causing painfull fingers and hands and also a condition called Dupuytrens Disease casusing swelling to the finger joints. When I have some better days I will try to get back on the build, for now holding small implements and model parts is too painful. OC.
  5. This is Seriously good work - when its finished you have it displayed in the window of Harrods with all that Gold. :) OC.
  6. Just wondered if you might have found it easyer to have done a dark wash in the scribed panel areas after spraying the hull, you could have done this with a cloth and thin paint - just a thought. OC.
  7. I am probably missing something here - but is the models hull physical raised or sunken panel lines, where you have had to airbrush all those black shading? OC.
  8. Oh also at the side of Cutty Sark was the small yaht Gypsy Moth - so tiny compaired to the Sark. OC.
  9. Looking Great - she so reminds me of the Cutty Sark when I visited her as a young child, they where so graceful yet poweful OC.
  10. Just poking my nose in to say - Same here with photography but - it arrived at the same time as my first plastic kit which was a Airfix Red Arrow Gnat aircraft, and a Polaroid Instamatic camera, the rest is history Anyway sorry for railroding your thred Brian Sam (unusual name that) Looking great by the way. OC.
  11. Super fine work going on here could do with a new smiley saying "super fine detail going on here" :) OC.
