SMS Seydlitz by Canute, Cog and RGL (anyone can join) - Hobbyboss - 1/350

You’re welcome, remember my erstwhile friends will PSO be adding their interpretations. 

 

Ive preshaded the guns and superstructures, added a German red/brown Linoleum and finished painting the railings which are the only full metal ones on the ship, the rest are stanchions. 

 

Ive replaced all the kit searchlights with North Star ones as they are beautiful.

At the start of the build I bought Gary Staff’s German Battlecruisers Of WW1.

 

it has a fantastic history and reference photos but very limited on painting. 

 

This reference http://german-navy.tripod.com/sms_paint-overview.htm really points out correct colours, thus I need to repaint the top of the turrets jet black but with no circles as that didn’t come till 1917 when the torpedo nets were already removed.

The aft funnel originally has two white bands added for identification, they were painted over as the war began but left in place. I replicated this with tape. 

 

The aft funnel was painted red when away away from the shore to identify her in the battle line then repainted grey when it came back to port. I’m going to leave it red because I can. I’ve added a platform not mentioned anywhere but the original photos and I’ll add a small brass steam whistle.

The Lino is actually the correct colour, but I’m going to have to overspray the funnel again to lighten it up. 

colour at 1:1 you mean

As Carl already said: funnel looks better now.

could you do a pic with a referenceobject for size?

 

I am a bit lost when I look at those parts. You call them big guns, They look huge, but I suspect that is pure delusion.

Jan, this is the size of the Big guns 

That's the hand of your youngest? ...

 

Nice rigging. I did the verticals on my current build first too, added the bridge later. Worked a whole lot easier than rigging afterwards, which really is a pain. I presume it is how we evolve as a model bungler

If you enjoy building ship models that are historically accurate as well as beautiful, then The Nautical Research Guild (NRG) is just right for you.

The Guild is a non-profit educational organization whose mission is to provide support to our members in their efforts to raise the quality of their model shipcraft.

The Nautical Research Guild puts on ship modeling seminars, yearly conferences, and juried competitions. We publish books on ship modeling techniques as well as our world-renowned quarterly magazine, The Nautical Research Journal, whose pages are full of articles by master ship modelers who show you how they build those exquisite details on their models, and by maritime historians who show you what details to build.
