Here is my completed HMS Valiant, a 1/700 scale kit from Trumpeter. I put the airbrush away for this one and used my paint brushes. Built without any after market parts. It came with a small set of PE bits. Very very fiddly and microscopic in this scale. Some of it taken by the carpet monster. I wish they would offer alternative parts in plastic.











This one has the standard Skids measuring system.....

That is superb Chris, the weathering looks just right to my eyes.

If my Warspite comes out anywhere close to this, I'll be a happy chappy indeed.

Well done mate.

Superb mate and at such a small scale, I would have gone blind. Truly superb.

Really can't get over how much detail you put into these Chris. You could really do up an auto or a plane with your skills. Just saying.
