Hope you enjoy

Shaping up very nicely. I might be tempted to carry the black up a level though – the yellow's a bit overwhelming.

My thoughts exactly….I am going to give it a day or so to see if I get used to it. Hopefully I will be able to do without the sunglasses by tomorrow!

I think it might work better with the barbette level and rear turret in the black. Possibly just the top of the rear turret in orange so that the black's a uniform height from stem to stern?

The ship is looking very nice; makes me want to start one of my own. Definitely add searchlights. They were new back then, and navies were trying to figure out what all they could do with them.

Tom Swift and his amazing searchlight.

I was thinking of doing everything in black as far back as the end of the barbette level but keeping the rear turret in the yellow. The rivet work doesn't show worth a darn on the black. I need to get a new color for the deck, the one that I am using now just looks like a shabby gray color.

Does anybody know how to kill magic marker? I drew the deck planking in with what I thought was a pretty dry Sharpie but the little bit of ink that was there keeps coming up through the paint. Six coats so far!!

Spray gloss varnish ought to do it – should effectively form a barrier between the marker and any paint applied after.

Very nice indeed! And almost enough rivets…!

I would lose the rear funnel
