Hi model friends, Being new on the site, allow me to introduce myself, before posting some photographs of the kit I am working on. My name is Klaas, I live in Holland. 61 years young I love baseball (Rays fan), reading (mostly history), gliding. After a long time gathering courage I started two years ago with the 1/200 GPM Prince of Wales. I decided to build the model as a waterline model because of two reasons: the first is that all other models I've seen are full hull models, and secondly my other two ships (the 'De Ruyter' cruiser and 'Schleswig-Holstein') are waterline models. I'm also thinking of placing the ship in the water, will try to create a baseplate that resembles the ship slicing the ocean. Maybe with Japanese bombs missing the ship closeby I thought it a good idea to build the ship on a baseplate for rigidity. Slight problem: because I have not decided how to create the 'water' I thought it a good idea that the ship could be removed from the base plate because materials like mache is created using water. So I decided to screw the ship from below onto the baseplate with small screws. This way I can remove the model easily and simply attach it later on. Hopefully..
