You might be right Russ, I might be in trouble!

Working on a couple of other builds tonight but I still found time to add 4 more PE parts to the Gearing.



No excuses now, the hull is ready for the paint shop.

Cheers, D

My interpretation of Hull Red, 3 parts X-7 Red mixed with 1 part XF-9 Hull Red, Tamiya acrylics.




I will let this cure for a day or two then on to the boot topping.

The color looks really good! Fine job on the lower hull, and your mixed red looks spot on to me!

Thanks again for the feedback guys, very much appreciated. I am really pleased with the colour and the finish, and looking forward to getting the next couple of colours on.

Cheers, D

D, she looks great with a bit of colour on and the red looks like a very close match through my monitor. Keep up the fine work.

G'day folks.

Reading through Russell's Prince Eugen thread a couple of days back, and seeing such great progress, I was motivated to revive this thread with a view to getting the Gearing back on the bench.

Several hours later I am still dealing with the Photobucket fiasco trying to cross-reference images, download them to my Kitmaker Gallery and replace them in the thread.

What a PAIN IN THE #$%&#@$ !!!

Cheers, D

Damian, I quite agree! Try Imgur. They are still a user friendly host for posting images - at least for the moment. I fear the days of the "free" Internet may be numbered.

I'm sure you are correct Tim. I think for the moment I will just focus on using my Kitmaker Gallery. It works fine and I have plenty of space there.

Looking forward to getting back into this project.

Cheers, D

I wondered where this had got to. It will be great to see it revived. Hope you sort out the pictures and I think using the Kitmaker gallery is a good idea. No worries about the future of third party photo sharing sites... touchwood.

cheers

Hi Damian

very flattered indeed! It's great to see this thread revived!

Yep, photo bucket has put a lot of people out, but the Kitmaker gallery works great, and like Michael said, there's no chance of it going astray

Thanks for checking in guys. If you look back through the thread I have replaced images up to about half way through page 4. I am hoping to finish the rest tonight so I am ready once I dig the kit out of the dark depths of my garage.

Cheers, D

Edit: It's done! All images have been updated. Now I just need to read through a couple more times to remember where I was at, and what I had planned.
