Thanks Tom, It took me about two months to build. I built this one from scratch so that I was able to add working lights and radar beams. And I wanted it to be more like the real one on the ship. Trying to add as many details as possible , but at 1:100 scale it has been quit a challenge.

Hey everyone, finally have been able to do some painting on my ship. Had started with acrylic paints but had alot of bleed through under the tape. Decided to sand her down and used enamel the second go around. Had much better results with that. Here are a few pics of whats been done so far.

It looks great!

1 thing about the bow thruster and it's marking, have you placed your bow thruster a bit more to the rear on purpose or did you move the marking forward?
For as far as I know the thruster marking should be directly above the thruster itself.

Greetings Josse

Great looking boat. That mast is fantastic. Getting things working at such a small scale. VERY NICE!

Thanks guys, yea I had not work in 1/100 scale before, it has been a challege. And as for the bow thruster Josse, it is done on purpose I moved it back from its normally location to allow for enough space to install one. I put the bow thruster markings where it would be on the real ship.

In that case I would have done the same thing.
Just wanted you to know about it.

Hey Josse, yea at first I was going to put the markings directly over the truster but it just didn't look right. And when it's in the water you really can't tell, it looked more realistic. Also been following your build on the well enhancer. Nice ship, quit a large project to go going there.


kind regards, Dennis
