  1. Hello and welcome to my build log of the 1:350 scale USS Indianapolis by Academy. I will be adding detail from the Advanced Pontos Kit as well. Just received this kit in the mail today and am anxious to get started on her. This is not my first model, however it is my first model ship. It will be my first time working with aftermarket parts as well. Although I have built a couple of Metal Earth models to prepare myself for the photo etch, this will be my first time applying after market parts to a plastic kit. My goal is to build her as she was when she left the
  2. Right then folks ......Change of plan i have changed my mind about building HMS Illustrious and have now orderd HMS Warspite in 1/350 scale, she arrives by next weekend. Anyway after seeing her wreck via a wet path (whats left of her - just bits of her bottom area and keel under water) i am pondering over building her as a full display stand model but weathered, a part wreck as she was when she was wrecked against the rocks near Prussia Cove, to display her even more dissmantled as she was when she was towed into Penzance bay and taken down section by section(this woulkd me
  3. Hi Model ship world members. Here are some pictures of my 1/700 Titanic Model Kit. This is an ACADEMY model Kit MCP 1/700 scale and My first build. Ever since I was 6 years old (32 years ago) I've always loved the history behind the Titanic. I remember being super exited on 1985 when it was discovered and I waited eagerly for the National geographic film to come out. I even went to several book stores looking for the printed issue and my dad couldn't understand the fascination with the ship, but he went along with it. I even bought (now lost 😪) reprints of the n
  4. This was a last minute choice in what will be 2 ships. This is the 1/400 Academy Titanic kit. I purchased laser cut wood decks, PE Deck Chairs, PE Hand Rails.
  5. For years now, I have been thinking about building R.M.S. Titanic. Just like many other people, I have always had a keen interest in her history. By moving through this build, I am looking forward to gaining even more information about this amazing piece of machinery and how she helped shape our history going forward. Just recently, the opportunity came upon me to do so. Last Sunday I woke up made, my coffee and breakfast sat down in the living room and proceeded to figure out what I was going to do for the day. While sitting there I received a message from a colleague of mi
  6. I received this kit for Christmas from my admiral......she was so bummed out, that it wasn't the Billing's Titanic. I have never built an academy kit before......I was impressed with how the kit looks. there is quite a bit of detail to it, and I really like the size......the hull is 26 1/2 inches long. I have to be brief....I am to grill supper. it has been an off the wall busy day! I will start with an overall view of the parts......there are so many small parts.......I really have been away from plastic for quite a while. I had to do this on the dining room table, so the
  7. Hi all I made a start on what is going to be a massive project in which HMS Warspite is involved in an air attack by the Germans. I will be using Academy's 1/350 Warspite and several other scales of model aircraft also will be using led's for the explosions and lighting the water spurts from near misses with bombs. I wont be getting the Warspite till my birthday in roughly a fortnight but have made a start on the base and some of the planes I will be using. Here are some picks of where I am at, at the moment. the smallest bombers are 1/350 scale kindl
  8. This is my progress so far on Academy's HMS Warspite special edition. It comes with extra PE and gun barrels. I also bought extra PE oelikons and pomp pomp guns. he oelikon body proved too delicate for me, so I used the shields and bases and the plastic gun from the kit.
  9. Hi all thought i would post a build log of my first plastic ship kit in years. this is how the kit came from The Model Dockyard After opening the box this is what i got and withe the sleeve removed the box has a real feel of quality about it. So thats what you get lets get started. i have decided to light her up so first job is to drill out all those port holes all 806 of them. i know you cant see it from the photos but trust me all 806 are drilled out This is showing the decks after the bit h
