The main deck and quarterdeck are painted but not weathered. Most of the work has gone into the foreward quarterdeck this week.








Comments and input are welcome as always.
Thanks for looking,

Very nice work. I particularly like your PE work. Very neat and clean. Excellent job. I've concluded that I'm not going to invest in the 1/200 Arizona, in spite of my enthusiasm for the idea of more large scale warship kits. Just too much ship for my available display space, and not truly one of my subjects of greatest interest. But, looking at what you have done with her in 1/350 definitely makes me consider that she might be something I'd be interested in doing in that scale.

Thanks for posting,

Bob

The 1/350th Banner kit is absolutely terrible. About all I'm using is the basic hull and the turrets & their barbettes. From the deck line up it is all replaced. It's not an expensive kit but to get it 'right' requires a lot of scratch building.
