    Thanks Polux! I agree that it may be too much, but as this is a first attempt at the technique - I guess too much is better than nothing!!:):rolleyes:

    Now that the Valyrie is crawling to the finish line, I've decided it need a suitable base. The opening scenes in the animation series shows the Valkyrie taking off from a carrier deck with a jet blast deflector and flight director...... I did not want to build one from scratch so I have opted for the next best option, a kit! The 1/48 Skunkmodelz, USN Nimitz Deck!!
    Boy! Am I a happy chappy or what?? Its massive and impressive!!:eek::eek::confused::confused::D:D:D

    Here are a couple of photos of the boxed kit and sprues!!

    Oh well, I got what I wanted, so I can can only go forward!
    Started with the JBD (Jet Blast Deflector) and the JBD well with painting, chipping and wash - still more work is needed.

    The Valkyrie is taking wing and finally on the home stretch as far as assembly is concerned.
