Good day to all! I decided to put on display Missouri I collected a year and a half ago.
In autumn 2010 I was on a business trip in NY, I came across one store, saw there a kit of a battleship model, and an idea to build occupied my mind. The scale of construction was beckoning me.
At that time I was not familiar with any etching, or with putty, and I saw Tamia paints for the first time in that store and bought them to try. Before that I dealt only with Star acrylic.
The kit pleasantly surprised me with very good quality of cast parts. It was a pleasure to assemble, after the kits from Star I didnt even suspect that this could exist.
Details of model construction
The battleship model is assembled almost from the box. Among the additions I can name guard rails from molding tree; also I re-made a crane on the poop, I made it from the molding tree, because the crane in the kit was totally a plastic boomerang, no openwork.
I was painting USS Missouri somewhere with a brush, somewhere with an airbrush. I used acrylic paints Star and Tamia, after working with which I realized what should be called real paint. During the construction I didnt use shading, tones and other bad words I dont possess the magic of 3rd level But its never too late to learn.
In general, check it out.
