Trumpeter 1/350 Dreadnought 1915 was created by Grant
I thought I would start a thread for this. I've been building this for three or four months already. It's a really different experience than an aircraft or tank. There are almost 700 pieces, lots of PE, and its has some very complicated stages. The instructions are also very vague. I'm enjoying it though, and I like the subject. I'm currently playing World of Warships on PS4 and I've collected a few more naval subjects including the Trumpeter 1/350 Essex CV-9 and some Fujimi 1/700 waterline kits. While in Japan recently I was sooo tempted to get the Tamiya 1/350 superdetailed Yamato. Maybe next time. It looks to be a beautiful kit. :)

Deffo watching this!! I have the Zveda kit in the stash. I love what Dreadnought meant for the future of naval power.

Lovely kit and build of one of the finest subjects.

World of Warships has to have sold so many kits lol. Great game.

Some progress to report.This build could honestly take forever. I'm not putting some of the PE on, it's just too fiddly fro my shaky hands.

Nice mate...Looking very tidy! You going to weather it or keep it new?

I will give it a bit of weathering, but nothing too over the top.

And a bit more. Quite a bit of careful detail painting.

It's a great looking ship. Given the investment of time in this already, and that it is going along reasonably nicely, I'm tempted to get the Eduard photoetch railing set. I've had a bunch of trouble with the photo etch included in the kit.

More parts. The mast is a bit bent so I'll have to work out how to fix that.
