1⁄700HMS Hood, 24 May 1941
The ProjectSubject HMS Hood 1941
Kit Trumpeter 1/700 HMS Hood
Etched from GMM generic fret for British BB's.
This was the second part of a commission to build a Bismarck and a Hood both in heavy seas. As I didn't had a picture as a guide this time I used my imagination to create a very dramatic scene. The Hood had a reputation of a very wet ship so I felt like adding a bit extra water as she is just coming in and out of a wave. I didnít super detail, however the kit has very nice details on its own and with a bit of etched it gives a very convincing rendering of the real thing. The sea was created with silicone which was shaped with wet finger and then painted dark blue. The water again is transparent silicone which was painted selectively with tones of white and light blue but also left in parts to its original translucent hue.
