Things to use
Gun turrets = the plastic tops of aerosol

Funnels = large felt tipped marker pens (Tubes), Fax paper tubes ,thin walled plastic tube

The enclosed picture has a fax tube for a funnel and an aerosol top for a turret ...the 2 gun sponsons are 1/2 aerosol tops

I'm heading off to Halfords to get some car body filler for the rudder and some paint.

Does anyone know off the top of their head the name of the filler (something like psp 25??)
And a suitable colour paint for the red, bottom section of the hull?

Just a quick point. Are you sure that the underwater hull is red? Many were black at this time.

Sorry - I'd missed the early pic :embarrassed:

At that time yes,most lower hulls were a red colour,but fast forward a decade or two,and the colour of the lower hulls began to change.

Hi all,

As you've probably guessed from the slow down in posting, progress on the build is slow. When I say slow, I mean non existent.
I have many excuses at the ready, but the truth is it has slipped down in my priorities for the moment.

I'm hoping to get some nice quiet days around christmas when I can start again.

Apologies to anyone who is following this thread, it will get built... Eventually!

:)
