1/350 French Battleship Dunkerque

January 10, 2018 in Ships

I received this kit as a prize for the ‘May awards’.
This kit is very good without any detail-up. This kit include some photo-etching.
I have not tried to weathering, except for the low hull. I expressed the panel by using shading.

Someone pointed out that the screw in this kit is in error, and pointed out that the color of the deck is brown, not tick tone. So I made a few mistakes.

Ha ha ha ha ha. please see me in a friendly way.

  1. Mistakes….? Can’t tell…!
    Nice work, my friend.

  2. Bah – your models are museum worthy.

    A real beauty, Won-hui Lee.

  3. Congratulations!
    This shows, that you can get a very good result, building a kit out of the box. Good basic construction and a good paint job are still the most important aspects of modeling.
    Well done!

  4. Great build of a good looking ship.

  5. Nice clean build and quality craftsmanship. Well done.

  6. There is something wrong with this model, but it’s not the color. It’s the fact that it’s not on one of those fantastic water bases we see you do! (I’m still in awe of your diorama of the U-boat getting torpedoed underwater!) All kidding aside, it is nice to see a full hull model and this looks great. (I really like the splash of color with the red white and blue bands over the turrets.)

  7. This is really very nice.

  8. It’s always good to see a prize built especially when it’s presented as well as this.

  9. Won-hui, another beauty, I really enjoy your work, Well done !
    I was wondering, what size are the guns on the main battery’s?

  10. Hello Won-hui Lee,
    Like mentioned above, this model can go straight into the French Naval Museum. It is a museum piece. Regards, Dirk / The Netherlands.

  11. Hi Won-hui Lee,
    Absolutely beautiful, I definitely agree that your ship is worthy to be displayed in a museum.
    Very well done.
    Rick

  12. Great attention to detail.
