    RE ' Fleet Admirals' you could literally have different fleets and a Fleet Admiral for each, a la the U. S. Navy 6th Fleet, 7th Fleet etc, you could even break it down further to 'Task force group' !! ๐Ÿค”

    I've never done this sort of model building and having seen Robbobs & others results the phrase 'I'm not worthy' springs to mind, however it is also inspirational and you can start your modelling journey with more modest goals and still achieve something very satisfactory , hats off to Robbob & others in their never-ending quest in raising that bar !!.๐Ÿ‘

    Don't beat yourself up, you're basically making a prototype of every model you make, if EADS, BOEING, NASA and the like can screw up, your in good company, and I would suggest that your attention to detail is considerably better than theirs, just ask Steve !!. ๐Ÿ‘๐Ÿคฃ

    I would guess that all modelers are at the mercy of paint suppliers and you just hope that different batches are only slightly off, or go over the top & equipe yourself with an appropriate number of colours & finishes to mix yourself!!, not something the vast majority of modelers would contemplete, but the frustrated hair pulling & extra work is seen as part & parcel of their hobby !!, is there a middle ground ?.๐Ÿ˜ฒ

    As a 'big gun' ship fan, it's great to see a model of one of the lesser known Battle cruisers!!, especially if that model is bieng ' rescued'!!, at such a large scale this HMS REPULSE is RARE indeed !!.
