1:96 Revell HMS Beagle ‘Steampunk Airship’ Conversion

Got given this by a friend – never done a ship before, looks a bit tricky with all that rigging…

Build starting to take shape, so far quite straightforward although there is a lot of flash and mold lines to deal with…

That’s most of the brown plastic parts done, just some small fiddly bits to add (anchor, life boats and canon).  I will check for gaps and bits that might need filling or filing and then its time for a primer…

Everything gets a coat of Vallejo black surface primer

It was starting to loose my patience with this build – I messed up a lot of the shading so decided to change tack (pun intended)

This project now becomes a donor hull for a ‘steampunk airship’ conversion
