H.M.S Hood 1/350 in progress
June 19, 2015 in Ships
Hello, its have been a long time since my last active posting here on iModeler. Beside the fact, there is currently not much time for modelling, i would like to present you one of my projects, that keeps me busy.
Its Trumpeters H.M.S Hood in 1/350 scale. It was started in 2007 (!) and stalled shortly after i noted the long seem around the hull, between upper and the underwater part of this rather long hull. Filling and sanding was “fun”
Re started many times, now i have some new skills and a Trumpeter detail set, Eduard PE parts ( BiG Ed) White Ensign turrets and a Pontos self adhesive wooden deck, that finally blew new live in it.
H.M.S Hood wasn t only expensive for british tax payers 😉
The colors used, above the waterline are also from WEM. Its my first attempt to super detail a warship.
Hood is with her graceful lines a favorite of mine, since i saw the first time in my live the boxart on an Italeri kit, back in my youth.
The build is half way done and i feel its too late for a classical WIP topic, so here it is
Hope you like the effort so far
