1/144 HMAS Wallaroo [Bathurst-class corvette]

I began to work on another model. This time it's an HMAS Wallaroo, Bathurst-class corvette of Royal Australian Navy.
It comes from the "Modelarstwo Okrętowe" and the original scale is 1/200. But as I prefer bigger scales for ships, I resized the kit to 1/144 scale and reprinted it on a high quality cardboard.
The model, unlike some of those I built recently, is not so well-designed but I'll try to do my best and overcome all difficulties.

Smooth bottom plates. Very nice. Again, thanks for sharing.


Have you built a submarine using that technique?

aansorge and Don, thanks.

aansorge, what exactly do you mean by "that technique"? May I ask for a bit more precise question?

Don, as you'll see in these new photos below, the hull is not so smooth...
Looks like I identified the problem of hull parts inaccuracy. It seems to be that the model is intended to be built waterline, even though they provided the underwater option. That's probably why there are so many inaccuracies and places to fill with putty. I also had to make the black water line from scratch. The gaps between the underwater and overwater part of the hull were pretty fair-sized... I think the upscaling doesn't help here too...
All those problems obviously force me to use some paint here and there. And I painted some places, as it can be seen in the photos, but the colors are not definitive. I'll be trying to find the best-matching paints.

It's the last update as the corvette is almost finished.
The bigger scale is for one thing better - for all small details, elements of the vessel. It's much easier to make them.

Model is finished.
Despite many difficulties, I managed to complete this Bathurst-class corvette.
If there were any imperfections, I tried to hide them under some weathering.

For the end, I've left a few links about history of HMAS Wallaroo:
HMAS Wallaroo | Royal Australian Navy
H.M.A.S. Wallaroo | Monument Australia
