    I guess it's appropiate to go ahead and start a thread on the Eugen and trust me it will be a slow build until the deck are down.;) The poop deck has been completed and weathered with the main deck has had it's second color with tape for the third being applied lets the main deck is @65-70% and it has about 12hrs in at the moment.The poop deck took about 8 hrs to finish with just laying tape and listeing to the radio if even for just 30 minutes to an hour per session.The new wood decks are the big craze it seems right now and quite few do look really nice but price and the fact the thickness detracts some the mould on deck pieces.So I am doing an older appliction taking alittle longer but methinks if I do screw up in the process it will be worth it.The Hs123a is the diversion from the the little strips of tape :).

    Good stuff Kevin. Just seen the adverts for the 1/200th scale Bismark - impressive, and at around £180 in the UK, I guess a good price for such a large kit (over 3 feet long).

    That's a bigg'in Terry and at 1/200 should show some really nice details.The next ship I would be after is the Italian battleship Roma it really has a nice layout armament wise.This is color chart from the 1/350 Trump kit.

    Thanks Andy it's painstaking but I think it will be worth it.No pics tonite what I got started on was I applied the base to the diorama talking about the wood part.I had made the frame some time back and got it all glued and clamped up tonite.I have not decided yet what speed the Eugen will be going and have to consider at what speed would the S-100 be tagging along at?Maybe make the S-100 booking it and the Eugen moving at a much slower rate?That might add some nice action.The Hs123 is about to get some paint so pics of that may be inbound by weeks end ;)
