1/350 HMS Prince of Wales (Tamiya)
Tamiya's 1/350 POW's with Pontos, Gold Medal, NorthStar, Eduard, White
Ensign, and some other aftermarket upgrades. I was pretty unhappy with
my previous efforts with the KGV class and was determined to do it right
this time. Thanks to everyone who helped-out and contributed to the great
POW's camouflage thread. It was most certainly helpful in guiding
me to a choice I felt was somewhat accurate; and at the very least pleasing
to the eye. This is a brand new water method I've been putzing around with
lately. It's a complex procedure, but in a nutshell it's carved styrofoam,
coated with plaster, then sanded, then epoxied, then sanded, painted, epoxied,
and layered with multiple runs of acrylic followed by cotton wake etc.
Rigging is single and doubled-up uni-Caenis.
