HMS Repulse

1/700 HMS Repulse (Tamiya)

My recently completed Tamiya 1/700 scale Repulse. I used the White Ensign brass photoetch set and rigged the model with 0.002" monofilament. The model was painted with a custom mix of Testor's acrylic paints for the lighter gray and flat black. The ship was washed and dry-brushed in the usual manner and then washed again with a heavily diluted flat black enamel wash applied directly over the flat base colors (a first for me) to bring it all together. Some light weathering with pastel chalks and a lightly sprayed flat clearcoat finished things off.
