and ready to get underway.

It's finally finished. Put the finishing touches onto the aircraft, the last of the few details on the boat, and it is finished. Not an easy project, but most rewarding as I know there's not a ton of them out there.

Just a quick recap, the only parts used from the kit are the hull and PE deck supports and railings. The deck, aircraft, boats, davits and cranes, hangar deck details were all scratchbuilt, and Le Arsenal, White Ensign and Gold Medal bits rounded out the rest of it. Rather than ramble on, I'll let the pictures do the talking.

OK not sure what happened to the white balance on this one. It was not that blue when I uploaded it.

Hope you enjoyed. The pictures were shot with a Nikon D7000 set to Aperture priority, stopped down to f25, ISO set at 1250 and a shutter speed of half a second, all done on a tripod.

Cheers
Mike

To post an image of your models, you will first need to find somewhere to host your photos on the Internet. Your ISP will often give you a limited amount of free web storage, and other online photo storage is also available.

To post a link or an image, simply type in the URL (web address) of the destination page or image. The URL will appear as a link (for an HTML link) or an image (if you link direct to a .jpg file) when posted. You can use the Preview facility to see how your message looks before posting to Plastic Pix.

Please try to keep image sizes to 800 pixels wide or less, as larger sizes will be too big to fit on many computer screens. Also, file sizes should be kept to around 100kb or less, otherwise download may be very slow.
