S-100 & Flak 38 by gdollow - Revell - Plastic - 1:72 with PE

Recommended Posts

Here is some progress on the deck superstructure which is replaced totally with photo etch.  I have burnished all the PE as it means you do not have to use a primer. The decking is only placed on for the photos.  The colour of the deck was done by 1 coat of pale umber (artist acrylic paint), a thinned down Tamiya deck tan, then a wash of wood brown (walnut), followed by a wash of dark grey.  I only let the base layer dry, before putting the rest of the layers on in quick succession.

That's the thing about plastic, you can't just bin it and start over. After doing a 10 year build on a wooden ship and redoing lots of mistakes, I'm finding the amount of pre fitting is far more time consuming. Good to see another plastic build here! I shall follow with great interest.

I love what you have done so far. I have this kit in my stash with the Griffon PE set and metal torpedos. Looking forward to seeing more. I have drilled out the hull holes so far and added styrene tubbing behind it to give them some depth. I have not been working on it lately since have a number of models ahead in the queu.

Happy Christmas,


I have also built kits in the 1/72 scale one of these was a German E boat,      you are off to a flying start and doing a great job, plastic is such a workable enviroment as i feel it is more pliable and needs less physical work to bring a model to life....
