Wish i could make my. 1;350 scale New jersey turrets look like yours. ;D. How did you do it? If you don't mind me asking. That's great attention to details on the launches ;D can't wait to the next update :eek:

Hey model maker,

thanks so much for your kind words mate, im not the best with putty but i used is milliput, i take a small blob and wrap it around the base of the gun barrel and turret housing and then mold it shape with my fingers damped with water to get the basic shape, then with a tooth pick dipped in water you can add the creases to the canvas ;)

thats just one way you could do it, but always check your ref pics to see how far and low the blast bags hang, with the Iowa class turrets it seems the that the blast bags fit very snugly to the guns so maybe using thin foil for this might help mate


hope any of this is of help, and tell me how it goes if you try it on yours :)


thanks



Shane.

if you are missing or there are pieces you need let me know I have pretty much most of the Tamiya's
kit not done, I decided I am going to do the revell one instead.That offer is open to anyone who also might be doing the same kit.

I may need a part off ya if you have it, its one of the small cranes that are located behind the funnel wouldnt happen to have that part lying about by any chance ?

HI All,

quick update for you all, its been raining here on the west coast of Ireland....surprise....surprise ::)
but that does give me the prefect excuse to spend a few hours over the bench. So I got another small but noticeable item of ship done which was a pain to get right.... the Ar 196 Floatplane

[/URL]

Image for example purposes only blah blah blah

the kits versions are little basic but they the job fine for me, It was a bitch to paint, but Im happy with the end result, if you carefully I tried my hand at free handing the conpy frames which was tricky but adds to it. A photo etch prop blade is included in the etch set I have on order so that'll go once it arrives :)
no decals or markings some with it, but im not too bothered

hope you like it,


cheers



Shane :)

That's one teeny-tiny little plane

thanks Quaralane, it was a tricky little demon to paint but I'm really happy with it, and should stand out well on the ships catapult


thanks,



shane.

hey man, happy you found it helpful :)
The plan for the build at the moment is to begin detailing the sub assemblies with the photo etch set that arrived yesterday so over the next few weeks I will be slowly replacing the plastic molded details for etched parts starting with the guns. Hopefully I'll have some progress photos up very soon :)


cheers man,



shane.
