These are the first shots of my finished NNT 1:700 scale HMAS Perth, now ready to be shipped to our customers. As I intend to use this model in a diorama in the future I have done some extra detailing, using extra parts from White Ensign Models and Tomīs Modelworks beside a little scratch-building. This also explains the card below the model as I have to add the water(!). The model comes with photo-etch including the specific parts for Perth. In the Hi-Tech version you will find extra railing and the British radar set from Tomīs. Rigging this time is done with black sprue (thank you Jim!), all colors are self-mixed Tamiya for the camouflage and as usual Humbrol colors for all details. A very sound base for extra details can be found in the corresponding Profile Morskie.
