And now for something completely different. Normally, I post figures (or I rather try to post some figures), but this time, it's a bit bigger. My "longtime" WIP is done (you can find her in my "Speed-build"-Thread. Check out ->here<-) This project started as a commission. A colleague of mine was in the navy back in the days, and she was on board of the Karlsruhe when the vessel still was in service. When she left the ship, her comrades gifted her a model - but, as she is no model builder, the box was laying beneath some shelves never to be assembled - that is, until my colleague found out I had done model kit assembly for like 20 years or so. So she gave her precious kit to me - and I foolishly took it, believing the vessel and I could make love, not war. The kit intended otherwise though and that made my journey a rough voyage. When I started in February 2018, I didn't believe it would be a ride like this. I fought my way through glue, colors, sweat, tears and blood (literally). I think up to this date, this was THE most difficult kit I ever had to make. This old lady by far resisted every building step I made - and even after finishing her I had so many problems holding her together that I am glad I am done now. Anyways - it was a great experience and I learned a lot of things - especially regarding weathering and diorama building and I value what I learned. Thanks to everyone who followed my building progress and commented. I guess I wouldn't have finished her otherwise. Enjoy the pictures:
