Mark,

I agree with Thomas - the water looks great!

But those little aircraft on the sanding sticks in the background do look ready to come aboard! I look forward to seeing them with their markings on.

Thanks Tim, Slowly making my way through all of the decals on those planes. 9 decals per plane is slow going.

Mark,

The water looks great as Tim says. Good luck with the decals, not my favourite bit.

Cheers

Hi guys,

Got a shed load of family stuff going on over the next week or so. Getting young Duster of to University and a few other things, won't get into the workshop, or be in easy reach of the lap top.

have fun, and like a rubbish terminator "I'll be back"

Cheers

Framework for overhead lights for the well deck. Will be putting an LED strip inside this framework.



Mock up of the well deck with lights on.

Will be lighting up the hangar bay in similar fashion.

Thomas,

Very nice effect those light add to the bay, gives it depth.

Hi Thomas

looking good, will be watching closely when it comes to the lighting.

Might have a bash when when I get round to my LHD

Thomas,
The lighting looks very effective. Something to think about for the hangar deck of a carrier perhaps.

cheers

Michael, thanks. Actually, I did light up my USS Reagan hangar deck (see photos earlier in this campaign thread).

Si, take a look at Micro-Mark. That's where I got the LED strip lights, connectors, and transformer. Fairly reasonably priced (at least on this side of the pond...).
