    Ha nice, a groupbuild where nobody is building. So I might have a chance then :)

    Name: Marcel
    Username: Marcel
    Level: eh.... no level? Absolute beginner? Still wet behind the ears? Someting like that...
    Kit: Revell King George V
    Scale: 1:570

    After visiting Chris, last year and especially the visit with him to the USS New Jersey, I got interested in thise huge metal monsters called Battleships. This week I decided to build one, so I went to the shop. They had the New Jersey, but the model was 1/200, meaning HUGE and costed 99 euro, meaning expensive. Setting my aim lower, I only found either Bismarck or Tirpiz, both I don't want to do. Luckily the had one of my favorites, the King George V, by Revel, 1:570. So I bought that.

    As I said, I'm an absolute novice and don't know what I'm starting. I only built 2 models as an adult, two stuka's 1:48, and have no experience doing these kind of things. In other words: will be fun. I probably blunder about a bit and we'll see what comes out of it. Doesn't matter as long as I have fun.
    As soon as I do something I'll post some pictures for you to laugh at ;)

    Would be a great name for a battleship, wouldn't it? IF my result doesn't look like the original, I'll call it Marcel I in stead of King George V. :lol:

    Looking forward to watching the progress and hoping you have lots of fun.

    I wanted to buy this one but they only have the Prince of Wales which is 35 Dollars instead of 17 dollars for the King George. What a weird price increase for the same kit...

    Whow Wojtek, you set the goal high. Mine will be eh greyish, redish, yellowish and eh blackish I think. :lol:

    Btw does anybody know which colour that grey is in the humbrol colours? I find it hard to judge colours. 147 looks much lighter in real life than advertised. 106 is much darker in reality than it looks.

    Colours you need :

    Sandy Yellow ... Revell 16 - Humbrol 94, however for the teak wood I would use Humbrol 83 rather.
    Reddish Brown ... Revell 37 - Humbrol 70
    Light Grey ... Revell 76 - Humbrol 145 or 64
    Dust Grey ... Revell 77 - Humbrol 79 or 27
    Blue Grey ... Revell 79 - Humbrol 144 or 92
    Brass ... Revell 92 - Humbrol 54

    Here a couple of shots of the paper plane catapult with Walruses made for a paper model of 1/200 scale by another modeller .... and a couple of images of the real area.

    Thanks Wojtek. Th 145 was not avaiable in the shop so thanks for th suggestion to use 64. I also looked at 70 for the red, but found 73 to be much more convincing.

    I think the Humbrol 73 can be too. Just you may add some of red to get the brick tinge. Also the Hu 147 as the 145/64 grey colours seems to be fine.

    Here recommended publications...
