That's the thing with battleships - there are an awful lot of "little bits"!  Coming on nicely though.

Though the hull looks daunting due to the shape of a ship, I think it might be the easiest part of a build as the details can feel endless, and that's before you tackle the boats  %%  Not to put you off though Wallace, she's coming along lovely. I love the almost sci-fi style of the secondary and AA turrets.


Good work sir.

No hurry mate, after all, it's a hobby not a job. Enjoy it and don't get all stressed with nonsensical deadlines. I always think that an unfinished model shown at a show helps tell the story of it being built. The paint hides the making.

Welcome to the "Sponge" stage! Those of us who build battleships get to the point where it just absorbs more and more time and detail with no apparent change, then all of a sudden!


There is also an illusory stage when we make short lists and find them 20 long, all done and then we make another list and find another 20 items to do......


Its surprising how much detail a large model can absorb. I'm almost two years into my 1/96 scale Hood. It just takes such a long time to make the parts.


Cheers
