Re: HMS Cornwall: Type 22 Batch 3 Frigate - with images
Well done. I have purchased a number of used models I think you have inspired me to get busy rehabilitating them. Again, I say... Well done.
Very nice! You've done a really first class job on her - well done!
I've just finished making a 1/1250 model of HMS Cornwall. I'd bought an already made up Skytrex model off Ebay and my original intention was just to strip the thick paint off and do a clean build but there were just so many inaccuracies and key parts lacking in defined detail that it turned into a much bigger job.
This pre-paint picture shows how much of the original kit was used. The cast hull is in there but underneath a lot of additions and modifications, including a new brass flight deck and stern.
The full work in progress is detailed on my blog with lots more pictures - spread over 4 posts. https://midlandshipyard.blogspot.com
