Hi all we due to the kind generosity of CPNGROATS (a member on another forum who was so impressed by my model ships he gifted this to me from his own stash)I have received this
Revell Thermopylae Ym8x36V

Revell Thermopylae 3g9EIhb


today.
Thank you very, very much George, very kind indeed.
I hastily opened it tonight eader to start but my missus says NO!!! "you have enough models on the go, cluttering up my house. you finish some of them off and get them out the way". to be fair I do have 9 on the go and bits are all over the place, she's generally ok so I cant complain ( but I have found in the past a bit of sweet talking can bring her round ) so watch this space, in the very near future.

Looks like a great old kit!  You'll do it justice and more.  Nice to see the occasional ship here too!

Hi all well I've tried a little experiment, I got some copper and brass leaf with the intention of guilding the copper plates and spraying it with salt water to get the patination of the real plates, well they dissolved so that's out so now I'm thinking I will guild it then distress it with a combination of washes and such my question is ( as there is some debate as to weather it was copper or muntz metal which is an alloy of zinc and brass I think) should I guild it with copper or brass.

WOW!  The copper went on fast.  What did you use for adhesive on this one?  For so large an area, how did you burnish down the foil without damaging it?  This is, like your past models, a real lesson in careful detailing, thanx!

Super detailing!  That sort of thing is really difficult.  Thanx for daring to go where few have dared and sharing good clear fotos!
