My updates have been a little sparse over the past couple of months. While I've had my reasons for not posting (including work and that I injured my shoulder), I am hoping to have more posts as I get ready for the Enfilade 2013 convention.
To kick this off, I'll post some information about one of my Enfilade projects. The game title for this project is "Hunting the Beast" and covers the Operation Tungsten raid. This is a joint effort with Kevin; he is providing the Fleet Air Arm planes and I'm bringing the German planes and the target for the raid, the battleship Tirpitz.
I started off with the 1/700 scale Tirpitz kit from Aoshima. The kit is a pretty standard naval model and I'm not planning on doing anything too fancy with the kit (no photo-etch parts this year after the trouble I had on last year's project)
I'm using the paint scheme information from this website as a basis for my paint job. Here is an 'in-progress' photo of the paint job I'm using on the ship.
Kevin and I are going to get together this coming weekend to walk-through the game. So I'll try to snap a few photos of that to give everyone an idea of how the 1/700 scale ship looks with 1/300 scale planes.
