Nothing like the level of detail you're achieving here though, those pompoms look amazing, top job!

Agree 100% this is what I like in models,small details. I would really like to see your ship with your quality job it looks probably like real one. Maybe you can share some pictures??? Cheers

Like I already said, it's not up to the same level as yours, it was, as far as I can remember, the second model I finished after finding this hobby. I've come a long way since then but I have some very fond memories of building this kit and helping design it. I entered it in a local plastic model competition a few months ago, complete with various flaws and a thin layer of dust and it actually took out first place in its class. They had no Ships category, I think it went under "Everything Else".

It was a thohroughly enjoyable project and one of my favourite display pieces.

You can see the whole story behind it and some pictures in this thread.

Great ship. Thank you for shearing your build.It looks great with lots of details as usually in your projects. I hope I will finish mine too Sometimes I feel like to start something different and have break from Hood but I keep coming back to the build :p Another set of boxes finished another step in my build.

Sometimes a break can do you good, get some "fresh air" by jumping into something else, then come back to the big build later. I had to step away from my current build, halfway through the 42 trailer wheels but I came back all guns blazing and haven't looked back.

Yes I agree. I even got the model that I would like to build by every time I am looking at empty glass case that I made for Hood it makes me go back to her

There are 6 motor boats in the kit first smaller ones are done. The length is around 35 mm. For extras i cut all windows,add rubbers around the hulls,made cleats at the from of the boats,add bollards at the back,made bars on top of the main roof,add rubbers on the bow and use balsa wood for decks..... here are first 3 done ,the other ones are a bit longer so hopefully will be easier to work with. There are 15 vessels all together ...

Awesome work on those little boats, they're great little models on their own, these are the kind of details that take your ship to another level, interesting little hidden gems for people to find when looking at the finished model.

Thank you Rifleman and Jaffro for you comments. Here are another few steps in my build. By looking at historical pictures of Hood chimneys there are noticeable vertical lines along them so I add them to my model. HMS Hood-unnamed.jpg


Also attached two chimneys on main deck,as well as main mast and first rafting boats. Also finished rigging around chimneys and main mast.Last thing was to mount the crane with all lines... Here few pictures of the progress....
