David Hogue, The Woodlands, Texas
David modeled the heavy cruiser HMS Norfolk sailing through terrible conditions while on convoy escort near the Arctic Circle during World War II. Some poorly formed parts in the resin 1/350 scale kit from Iron Shipwrights needed to be rebuilt, and David added some details from White Ensign Models and L'Arsenal. He painted with WEM Colourcoats enamels using paper masks for the camouflage. Celluclay painted with enamels and artist's oils produced the angry sea.
