This is are 2 of my Models which I first made 20 years
ago , without the benefit of Photo-etch ( which i only discovered years later )

The only super-detailing I made - was to HMS Hood , which was to file down the rear edges
of the ' B ' Turret which the real ship had, which were to allow the Turret to pass the Conning Tower -
 ( the source was HMS Hood - Design & Construction
by Maurice Northcott , Bivouac Books ,ENSIGN SPECIAL  1975 ) which I bought on 24 Feb 1993
It is a great little softback much under-rated , it even contains an artists drawing of the modified Bridges of the 3  ' Admiral Class ' sisters which were cancelled in 1919 .

Another alteration was a flat piece of Plastic to the underside of B-Turret at the rear to show the
Turret was ' complete ' and not have a gap if you looked underneath , and the addition of Silk Flags which I have never seen for sale since, and which I kick myself for not buying lots more ( I only bought 2 - ( 1 in 1/600 and 1 in 1/350 )

anyway

sorry for Picture

regards

David

Well, the picture is not helping to see any of your work on the models   
But the Airfix kit of the Hood I bet needed a lot of work to reach this level, as all of the early Airfix kits were no where near of the ones from Tamiya, Hasegawa etc...

Too True !


It took a lot of work , filing and sanding down the Upper deck to mate with the Hull

I took great care , and got it right - helped I had made the model twice before , when I was a child
( it was my first ever model that I ever built !     )

so I knew the problems I would encounter , it is not a bad Model actually , state of the art
at the time , when i get some more time , I shall have to fork out the £ 75 to buy the Trumpeter 1/350 and all the Resin aftermarket and etch goodies to make it world class !

best wishes
