|Dave Mezera may come from Indiana but he surely has an affinity for the ships of the Royal Navy. Dave had multiple entries of British warships at the 2019 US IPMS National Convention in Chattanooga, Tennessee. This is his build of the Trumpeter
1:350 scale HMS Repulse, which Dave built in the 1937 fit. This included adding experimental 4-Inch gun turrets on each side of the mainmast, and adding floats to an 1:350 scale Swordfish from L'Arsenal. The wooden deck is from Pontos. Crew
figures are from Fujimi and the rigging was done with Invisible Thread. The model was painted with Model Masters paint and the weathering applied with soft pastel chalk.
