I have finished off the Repulse.

I was intending to put photo etch guard rails on her, but after 30 minutes and language that would make an NCO blush I gave in for now.

So here she is warts and all.

I drilled out all the port holes (probably missed one or two) and main gun barrels and added some token rigging.






Now doing the disruptive paint scheme to the Prince of Wales hull before continiung its build.

So whilst waiting for the paijnt to dry, I will be joiing the P-40 build with this

You did not miss anything.. The first input a week ago showed the kits, By the next day I had the two hulls to fit out stage as they realy went together very easily.

I concentrated on Repulse first as she was the quicker of the two and the easier paint scheme.

I will post some more shots in a few days on the progress of the POW

I only did one ship, Airfix HMS Suffolk converted into waterline HMS Kent, but seeing your "full hull" job I think I will do one more...
