It is no doubt a very impressive upgrade of what is a very expensive attempt at HMS QE by Albatros, and he has at least got the black line down the centre of the flight deck which is so obviously missing in all the production models each costing three figure sums!!. He has added detail and the little people look good - but he has omitted the red line for the safety area on the flight deck - attention to detail lacking there.
The handrails stand out - they should NOT - and IMHO are just DAFT on a model this scale.
My pet hate on the Merlin helicopters - RN versions do NOT and have NEVER HAD BLACK rotor blades - they are GREY.
The real CRIME in this model is unforgiveable and is the WHITE ENSIGN flown from the BOW -- NEVER NEVER NEVER. OK White ensigns are flown at sea - on the TRANSOM for ceremonial entry into harbour and then transferred to the main mast AT SEA - never would be up for flying. The JACK which is flown at the BOW is NEVER EVER NEVER EVER NEVER EVER hoisted AT SEA -
The position of the F35s etc on the main flight deck look a bit odd - should they not be on the centre of the black line.??
The F35's look a bit DARK in colour to me.
Sorry the model is therefore rubbish in my view!! First thing I would do with it is RIP OFF THE FLAG.
