I've finally finished the HMS Manxman Group Build.  I chose to build my model to represent HMS Abdiel.

Here's my quik-build from a long time ago :lol: :lol:

HMS Manxman 1_600scale Airfix kit 02203-3. Abdeil class Fast Minelayer, built OOB Nov1978 as a 1 day build, didn't even use grey paint to speed the build, just deck colour and black and then a bit of rust, pardon the 'red duster' flying from the main mast as I didn't have any white ensigns!

Mine as HMS Welshman for the ATF 2013 Royal Navy Group Build. The sea base is temporary, as I'll replace it when I get better at them.

Sharp looking Welshman James. The splinter camo and the seascape looks great. :clapping:

Here´s my take on this classic. I also chose Abdiel, but chickened out of the really neat camo Sailorman chose, using the 1941 splinter camo instead. WEM PE and Master machine dbrass barrels were used, the masts were replaced with machined brass for enhanced stability. I tried my hand at a livelier seascape this time, using white artist´s oil paint, heavy clear gloss acrylic gel, cotton wool and Pledge floor wax for the wave and spray effects. This is one of Airfix´ best 1:600 ship kits in my opinion, and still builds very well.
