HMS Dragon...
This is the Cyber Hobby 1/700 HMS Daring kit, in the HMS Dragon guise. Built almost OOB, but adding the following items: - GMM "Modern Royal Navy Warship" (raillings); - Aber brass barrels to replace kits over scale 30mm Oerlinkon; - WEM's Lynx helicopter PE (main rotor) - Hawk Graphics "Modern Royal Navy Ship Markings" and the final touch was - Atlantic Models ATDEC-01 "Decals for HMS Dragon 1/700"

Painted with WEM Colourcoats, but used Modern French Navy Deck Gray - it looked more like the shade seen on photos (but I can be wrong) Slight weathering and volumes made with artists oils. Water is Watercolour paper, with a mix of papier mache and acrylic gel, painted with acrylics wet-on-wet.
