I like these British short carriers - the little brother to the huge ones. Very well done

Very nice build. I like the way Peter used the pencil for the markings on the deck - very effective. Love that camo too!

Awesome work Peter. I've used the color pencil technique on wooded decks before.

Cracking stuff Peter! Where did you get a 1/700 scale crew? Scratched them? If so please tell me how!

Very nice looking dio.

You can really see her early Dreadnought ancestry when you look at her bow.

Great build Peter, I love the water effects and the pencil line idea is now added to my list of methods.
Thanks for sharing

Thanks very much for the kind comments guys and it's always a pleasure to send work to this site as the presentation is superb.

The 1:700 crew figures are available form WEM. I bought the Eduard sets, and the Gold Medal Models sets. Under the magnifier they all look a bit "flat", I guess they had less to eat in those days, and were fitter even if they did all smoke however I give them the burger, fries, and beer treatment by painting them with a thick acrylic coat - this makes them a little bit more 3 dimensional.

Cheers,

Although I have seen this feature before it was online, and since this week is being king of a "modeling time eater", I still have to say Congratulations Peter on another high quality presentation
Keep up

Great job. Very interesting build and the story adds a nice "backdrop" for the scene.

Thanks for sharing
