So with a new refreshed experience in making a model i remembered i still had one tucked away somewhere since......well....2004. A model i bought in Germany and, like my brother with his plane started on, failed miserably and gave up on it. To not extend the slab of text too much i'll summarize it with some pictures.

And here's a lil spoiler of what's to come in the future (and i've ordered more ships)

I hope at least some of you have enjoyed it so far despite the big slab of text and spoiler box spam ;)

 

Cheers

You should definitely buy the Mogami. One of the most beautiful ships ever to exist, in my opinion.

Oh, you live in Europe where it's easier to get models...

 

 

*jealousy intensifies*

 

But nice, Tamiya is great for models. American Revell sucks...

Very nice work, well done. Ive not built a model for over 20 years myself, but had a lot of fun building ships.

 

I have fond memories of spending hours at my local hobby shop looking at model kits and talking 'ship' with the staff.

Very nice work. I used to do it with planes, tanks and ships.

Still have the Tamiya 1:350 and several 1:700 waterline ships plus a few 1:72 planes.

Have not built any for over 20 years now

Tamiya's kits have always been great.  I've always really liked the Heller 1:400 kits myself.

The Tamiya Tirpitz isn't bad per say BUT......ever since they've started producing the molds for it back in 1978 they have forgotten to add the aft anker chain on the deck

Due to circumstances in real life i have never gotten to actually start building on the type 1936 destroyer but recently Wargaming has kicked off the build-off contest and it caught my interest.

 

So with fully regained enthusiasm i frantically started working on the destroyer and these are the results;

(ps: this ship has also been 100% brush painted)

 

Hull put together and dry-fitted the deck and standard to see how it all fits (this must have been the best fit i've ever had on any of my models)

 20170129_132530_zpser67ppcj.jpg

 

First layer of red paint on the hull and assembled some bits and pieces of the superstructure

 20170505_152543_zpsyzfdsyae.jpg

 

First layer of the waterline and some painting done to the superstructure

 20170506_011839_zpsp625nchr.jpg

 

More superstructure assembly/painting with now also the dark gray added to the mid deck house and 2nd funnel

 20170507_125954_zpsvl7rzj5w.jpg

 

Started adding strings to the motor-launch cranes to resemble the cables

 20170507_155542_zpsac9wdlr8.jpg

 

Painted the life rafts and motor-launches

 20170508_201227_zpshadfoj56.jpg

 

Some more strings added to the masts and the hull camo pattern before final assembly (behind the hull is the custom display case with a mirror back wall)

My fully finished Diether von Roeder, type 1936 destroyer in it's display case

Heck I wish I was that fast. I'm building something half that size for the contest and I just got to the priming point today.

​Despite it only took me 5 days i have put more than 40 hours in it. I was lucky enough to have a few days off and then the weekend followed.

Last Sunday i started at 8:30am and quit at 9:30pm so spent a full day on the model.

 

I use acrylic paint and it only needs and hour or so before you can put on the next layer of paint.

Work has started on 1 of my 2 submarines

Type VIIc

My first time ever working with PE (Photo Etched) parts and i have to say despite them having more detail it's friggin annoying as they are so fragile and a lot more difficult to glue on to the model.

 20170513_210931_zpseejeva1z.jpg

 

First bits and pieces have been put in place but it's proving to be a real test of my patience
