Finished this up in time to be counted as a 2015 build. It is a Model Factory Hiro 1/20 BRM. Only took 2 years to get it done. This was my first try at a multi-media kit. Mostly white metal with some resin and turned aluminum parts. Built out of the box and painted with Tamiya TS-9 British Green. I hope you like it.
John....Thanks...hopefully I won't have to kick too many butts....LOL
Joe...Thanks for looking in. The rigging is what's slowing me down right now. I've been studying the rigging diagrams to make sure I understand where all of the lines go to. There are 11 sails and each one has 5 to 8 lines on it. So there's going to be rigging lines going all over the ship. I'm trying to determine if I want to follow the instructions or put the sails on in a different order. And yes, the save on the case was fortunate. I had ordered it a little too tall, so it worked out when the bottom edge was cut.
Kevin....Sharp eyes !! It Is supposed to be the sub in Operation Petticoat. I did a 'pink' build on another forum several years ago. You where supposed to build a model of any subject as long as it was pink.
Chris....Not much of an update, but I have been doing stuff. When I got back from DSC, the extra rigging line I had ordered came in.
I also rigged the blocks on the other two masts and installed them.
Then I cleaned out a space in the TV cabinet so I could store and display the ship safely.
I tacked a couple of sails on to get an idea what it will look like.
