I got this gift set kit a few months ago, than...kinda forgot about it. I'm not sure why. I hadn't done much too it. (screwed the pooch on a few things as well) however as of today she is complete...mostly.
I'm not happy with the quality of this kit to be honest, and I love Airfix. the quality was horrible, critical pieces were broken from the sprue and even broken in half, ect.
I guess it isn't much of a build log, but I have plenty of pictures from when she was just a deck to her completed state.
This is where I was when I kind of put her in dry dock. She was deffinetly giving me the evil eye the last few months.
As of yesterday morning this is where she was, after that I was not looking forward to the small details. I have very shaky hands and tiny pieces are a daunting (sometimes frustrating) task.
This is how she looked last night, after taking a break for a few hours, worked well into the night.
And here she is fully assembled (wish I could find some railings for the aft heli deck) and on the base I'm thinking of using. Now I have the task of painting her...but my airbrush wont spray out paint, so....I don't know whats wrong. But Ill update if I get it working.
Edit: oh I am planning to do HMS Dragon, as I do love the art she has on her bow.
(I hope this is in the right spot, pls dont ban me)
