HMS Manxman
« on: 22 March 2024, 17:23:52 »
Hi all
Bought my first deans marine kit in November - had only built ‘plastic’ kits before and wanted the extra challenge these offered. Hadn’t heard of this class of ships before and got ‘taken in’ by their design and history so really wanted to do it justice. Definitely found some bits tricky but after 4 months of work she got onto the water and sails beautifully.

Thought I would share the build photos here. Thanks to all at DM for their help initially with their advice and support

Hi
 Excellent model and very well built I like the weathering beautifully done so had to get right and to easy to get wrong and she look great on the water.
 You should be proud of you work

If that’s your first DM kit then you certainly seem to have done it justice.
