FreekS Posted January 2, 2015 Share #1 Posted January 2, 2015 (edited) The Admiralen class destroyers were a series of eight destroyers built between 1928 and 1931 for the Dutch Navy. All were lost in WW2, one in Rotterdam and seven in the Dutch East Indies. The kit is from Pacific Crossroads, designed by Boris Mulenko, who is Russian and has built models of many of the Dutch ships that fought in the Pacific. The kit is a mix of resin parts and PE, and I have never used either. Here are some of my pictures of the start of the project Started with my (also new) airbrush. I practiced a bit on a small helo project (still visible!) but now started using it in earnest. Waterline is nice and straight and painting the PE before use seems to work. I put the resin parts onto double sided tape. The hull after painting on the box from Boris. First experience with PE - I bought one of those bending tools and read a bit on Internet. Main tool seems to be patience and it's still holiday... The nearly completed bridge, I count only 7 errors (all of them thinking errors - wrong parts on wrong places etc) ! And a start on the 75 mm gun platform between the funnels. All for now - so far I like the work and I very impressed with the extreme detail in the kit. freek Edited January 2, 2015 by FreekS GuntherMT, Piet, capnharv2 and 7 others 10 Quote Link to comment Share on other sites More sharing options...
