Quick update on the Graf Spee build – after many days of working on the photo etch rails and the general building got things to a point I was ready to finish the model. Have to say that this trumpeter kit was amazing. Most of my experience was from 25+ years ago and the quality of the kit is outstanding compared to the old Matchbox days! I added some standard photo etch KM rails and rather than having a set made it much less pressure on “needing” to complete them so I have only done a few on this model. A few rails later and I have a good idea how to stick them best and enjoying it on my next model the Prinz Eugen.
The last pic is with the base hull of the Prinz Eugen and amazed how much bigger it is! So small – no wonder they ran from a the 3 British cruisers as it cant be much bigger than our lights were…. until I get the white ensign British cruisers at 1/700 wont be sure:)
Next posts will be all Prinz Eugen in 1940/1941 “Baltic camo” – roughly like this!
