Revell 1/400 Queen Mary 2

thanks guys

I am really struggling to keep on with it when I have a Zvezda SD and the 2199 Andromeda in the pile ready to start, but I am going to finish this kit first - no matter how badly I want to build the others.

It's been almost a year since I last updated this. I have been working on it on and off again in the time since but I have had to wait a month or so for the replacement clear frames from Revell in Germany. It was quite a process to get it done, but worth it. I royally screwed up the first frames using the wrong tint and paint but not so this one.

I've run a dark euro Vallejo wash over the wooden decking to give it a richer colour than pine. It has soaked in nicely and I am very happy with how its come out

A couple of the pools have the railings and water added as well

The power socket for the top half of the ship lighting has been installed and ready to go:

The bridge is almost ready for lighting:

I have also added clear plastic strips and pieces as windows for the bridge and the forward facing part of the super structure:

The back lighting for the Ship name is done:

The (dry) fit is less than stellar here:

And the sides are done as well:

There are other smaller sub structures done as well but not worth photographing yet.

I'm trying to move on with it now in  time for Expo, but it may not get there this year.

That's all for now, but thanks for looking

Thanks for sticking around. I think this is just one of those builds that just keeps going on and on with lots of small details everywhere that need attending to, a seemingly endless supply
