Scharnhorst 1:570 Scale Model (WIP)

I wanted to share a model I've been working on of my favourite ship in WoWS. She's my first model since I stopped after high school many years ago and I picked her up during a business trip to the UK. I got her as a way to get back into building and painting model ships, I've always had a soft spot for carriers, so it's relatively amateurish. There is still a lot of work to do, mostly stuff I've never done before (coating, weathering, wire lines) but I'm pretty happy showing her off as she is now. 

On the one hand I'm a little sad that she's not as good as I think I could make her now after getting to this point but on the other hand she is by far the best model I've ever made to date and I'm extremely proud of what I've accomplished so far and she'll be kind of the anchor going forward. To remind me I can always do better.

Is this a kit or scratch-build?  It looks great, and I want one!

@KSN

I figured you'd want to see this, Chibi Scharnhorst.

That's also WAY better than the last ship model I made.

Of the King George V.

Where I accidentally glued the decking and super structure on backwards. Even though I wasn't drunk at the time. And I just went with it.

True story.

Good times.

@ForceUser I wish I had a speck of the talent you've used to create this beautiful model. You're far to modest; it looks outstanding! Well done, and from one Scharnhorst lover to another, thank you for sharing with us!!

 

*( @DonKarnage2 Greatly appreciate you pinging me on this; thank you. )

I was pretty sure you'd want to see it.

A little update:

I still haven't gotten around to the weathering and rigging but I might get around to the first clear coat today. I kind of got lost in building a P-38J (my favorite WW2 Aircraft) but I did finish(mostly) the case for the Scharnhorst. Dust is the enemy of all models. A bit of a learning experience in itself but pretty happy with how it turned out.

 

I also attached the P-38J I'm working on as a bonus.
