  1. thanks Neo - I must admit, I am also looking forward to the end So, I finally got round to finishing off the spot lights up front and thought I'd do a dry fit /light test, and thought I would share my happy results Yes, I probably should have gone with cool white, but I prefer the look of the warmer white. Well, that's it but feel free to share your thoughts - good or bad. As always, thanks for looking Si
  2. That is super cool. I love the cockpit glazing - it really suits it. Always respect someone who doesn't always build what's in the box. Great work!
  3. LOL, so technically I'm building a Star Star Destroyer. I could say something sarcastic here about Russian's having to be one star up on everyone else but I won't
  4. I'd actually willingly go to orchestral concerts if the performers went dressed like that. Great painting skills on show here. Well done
  5. Thanks Mark. Its all freehand whuch is probably why its takes so long to do done small section
  6. If I hadn't already have bought the Zvezda, I would have bought the Bandai kit. In a way I'm glad I didn't as I personally feel its too small, whereas the Zvezda is just right and is in roughly the same scale as some other capital ships like the Venator. Ive read about a few issues with the Bandai kit with light leaks and a bowed hull, but none of them are insurmountable. Must be nice to be able to build something OOB. Might try it one day
  7. I'm often asked for a size reference.Maybe this may help: Anyway, that's all I have for now but I'll update once I'm fully finished the trenches. Thanks for stopping by and for those who are actually still following this - you get an extra thanks for your enduring patience with me while I fumble my way through this Till next time! Si
  8. hey everyone Dusting this one off to show that I have actually started back on this yet again. Have begun the fun task of detailing the side walls, starting off with the front. This is pretty much where I left off in the last update but I am now more advanced along. Although it may not look it, a heap of small details have been added to the lips of the 2 hull halves. Whilst they don't look like much on their own, when you add the rest of it together, it fills the spaces nicely. I'm almost done for the front with only the right side front panel left to do which won't take long. Then
  9. Great to see this is still going on Tom, really awesome work on display here!
  10. nice progress Alex. Have been watching this one on the side. It's making me want one
  11. Hey everyone I have been taking a break from the Star Destroyer to built the all new Cordoba kit from Hasegawa. For those who have no idea what this ship is from, it's from an old anime series called Crusher Joe. https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Crusher_Joe Its a really nice kit and is the second kit of this ship made in styrene. The first, smaller kit was released by Takara which I happened to build way back in 2012 or there about. There was also a larger resin kit made by Soy-ya which is hideously and prohibitively expensive if you're lucky enough to find one
  12. That is a great looking Viper your lucky son gets to have! It has agreat maintenance crew - it's very clean
  13. Technically they don't. WOWS is World Of Warships and its a game. The Grober Kurfurst on that looks very different to this one. I built a Richelieu in a WOWS scheme a while ago using the Trumpeter 1/700 kit. I love the game. Its very addictive
  14. I got my hopes up when I saw the title and thought the one from WOWS was the subject but alas, I was sorely disappointed to see it wasn't as I super-badly want a model of that ship. At any rate, yours is looking fantastic!! I rather like the base to!
