First pictures of HMNZS Canterbury.
The transfers on the helicopter deck were a pain, the first attempt was ok until I gave the model an overcoat of satin varnish, they promptly curled up and detached themselves.
2nd attempt, having stripped the deck back to bare resin, re painted, gloss varnish, apply 11 strips of 0.3 mm water-slide transfer lining, decalfix, and after 24 hours in a warm place I overcoated with satin varnish. Phew they finally stuck !
So the first painted example, I've got 8 good castings which will be for sale once I streamline the decal fixing process.
I will be asking for £45 in UK to cover postage and would prefer payment by cheque (Paypal will be 5% extra to cover charges)
Overseas dependent on postage charges.
This model allows you to have the complete Project Protector fleet of the RNZN if you add it to my OPV and IPV vessels.
