    I think YAMATO would be very proud looking at his ship under Louis hands!

    Prosit Nannu Pec!

    This gonna be an eyectacher, love the deck!

    PS - While you are at it Lou, give the anchor chain a Burnt Umber wash and some touch ups with Burnt Sienna, to give it that used rusty look, I think will add some colour and contrast on that area!

    Prosit again!

    The beast is coming on nicely...posting some pics of the triple AA machine guns...have to make thirty of them and 6 40 cal AA guns which are a bit bigger...a very tedious and eye bashing job..believe me...Centre superstructure is more or less ready.....attached railings, mast and a few figs...got to get this beast ready for the expo I hope....hope u enjoy the pics

    great work lou cheers , just a little comment on the aircraft, I think that the yellow leading edge is a tad too big, but could be my impression.

    yellow stripes.....

    Post  in nannu pec on Thu Jan 28, 2010 10:47 pm

    Those are decal strips and then retouched with paint.....as a matter of fact was a bit apprehensive about them and I thought they were a trifle too wide ....and I think Joseph is right so if I can have more feedback from you aviation experts ...it will be appreciated....they can be easily corrected....
    tanks for your kind comments guys
