1/72 Type 42 D87 HMS Newcastle
« on: May 27, 2016, 05:37:03 pm »

Afternoon all, happy bank holiday weekend and all that!

 I thought I'd show what I've been cracking on with, which as the title suggests is my 1/72 Type 42 Destroyer, HMS Newcastle.

I'm quite a way on now but of course there are plenty of things to still do, including the fwd mast and a lot of detailing...anyway, comments and critics alike are welcomed, thanks Jack's and Jennies...

Looking good Adam.


As Faz says, looking forward to seeing it in the flesh on Sunday at Balne Moor.
