Having recently finished reading one of my favorite novels, The Cruel Sea, for what must be the 100th time by now (possibly not but you get the idea) I decided to finally scratch a Naval modelling itch that has been tickling me for years.
I purchased a pack of Flower class corvettes by GHQ along with some other GHQ models, and made a start. I have painted up all four of these in one evening and enjoyed every minute. The other 3 will appear in a future post as they are not based yet.
In the end I simply painted the base (laser cut mdf) in varying shades of blue with some black inks then carefully stippled white around the bow and wake to show whitecaps on the waves. All in all I like the effect, When stood back at "game distance" the effect is very nice, and even up close its not to bad.
Pictured with 2p piece to show size (couldn't find a penny) really is quite tiny.
