HMS Hood - By Danaussie

Postby DanaussieII » Sat Mar 07, 2015 12:22 am

Hi guys,

Been a slow few months for me, but it was great to finally get this baby done for my beloved Royal Navy Fleet Project. She had a few broken pieces on her that I needed to try and clean up with the paint and some modelling putty (well...as best I may anyways). I'll be placing another order this month I hope they can be the best models of their kind as I want to be able to show case Mongoose Miniatures.

Anyways Mathew has always been good in terms of a keenness to fix faults and rectify problems so I wont make too much of a fuss about it. I hope you guys like this very special model for a very special project I have been working on, here's HMS Hood:

That is very nice. Any chance on a rundown on what colours you used? I have her, amongst others, sitting primed and waiting. Just lost a bit on what colours to use.
