I did say mini-project Wink

Cut out labels I printed a couple of weeks ago Smiley

The test wash has worked Smiley
It hasn't shown up the 3D printing layers

Remaining ships washed Smiley

I should get this project finished this year, pictures might take a bit longer Undecided

I think I've got their debut album, "Watching it dry..."

Although it also sounds like a Culture ship name...

About paint and 3D layers: in my experience itís been more of a problem when dry brushing than with washes.

Ships sorted onto bases Smiley

Four masts needed re-gluing, less than a 4% failure rate Smiley

With these additions I've only got 14 Tankers and 29 Cargo ships, is that enough Undecided

Definitely looking to do the GQ NEI Campaign sometime in 2020

They should be painted "crab fat" ie grey, but I did my 1/3000 merchies as every shipping line working out of Liverpool in the 60's. You can name Liberties after friends and relations, they seem to have been named after people.

They're a variety of greys with some browns added for 'colour', hopefully I'll get some pictures after they have been varnished tomorrow

I've numbered them as they will see service for a range of what I suspect you would consider 'damn foreigners' as well as the UK
