Re: USS GALVESTON.... completed!!...2
Thank you for the slick-production video; really enjoyed it.
Those early CGs / CLGs were really complex, engineering-wise, trips into the deep unknown.
Especially since Clevelands and Baltimores were certainly not designed with guided missiles, massive sensor arrays, gobs of electronics, "in mind."
Hi Mario, firstly, well done there mate!
I trust/hope that you had fun with that one - much time have you spent. I've just watched the video twice to take it all in and had a lightbulb moment for you. Please bear with me, how good would it be if the kit manufacturers presented their instructions in the same graphics format and caption style that you have done here? From go to woa like this.. Instead of paper instructions they could include a CD or just a hyperlink printed on the kit box. Would that be cool or what!
I noticed that you used Primer coat on the model, so what are the advantages of using this product before you add your final colours? I've always just used my paints straight over the styrene or resin. Not cool what I do, please be honest.
I'm interested in your ECM Outriggers shown, I see a lot of ships from the 1960s/70's had that style of ECM. Please provide any details you can on these as I'd like to model similar on my CONSTELLATION CV.
Also, I'm still amazed at the work you've done on that SPS-43 array. I've never seen such a job well done on those at any scale - let alone 700 scale.
I much appreciate the time and effort that you go to to show me/us your outstanding modelling and film work.
So what's next on your slipway?
Keep 'em coming!
