Since showing off the unopened parcel back in my planning for 2016 post, I have been very busy, not just painting Daisy, but also assembling this:
The lower hull, and also showing the flat pack MDF sheets ready to be punched out
It is the MSV Ironsides from TT Combat, and it is an absolute beast!
With a full complement of containers, a two story bridge, stairs and other cool laser cut details, this was simply too cool for me not to buy.
Assembly wise, the kit was not too bad- I have assembled far worse! I used both superglue and PVA to assemble the kit, and recommend a degree of patience while assembling the larger parts- for example the container deck is two pieces and getting them to sit right, as well as their side railings was a little challenging! Assembling it late at night probably wasn't helping that either.
Regardless, it has been built now, and has even got a coat of paint!
I am planning on trying out the salt weathering method on it, to give it a rusted hulk kind of look. Should be good I think!
More on this as I progress....
