  1. Hello Julian, I contacted Chippy about the walk arounds he was talking about on the forum, but he did not answer me until now. So now I will try and ask you, if you have already received the walk arounds of HMS Plymouth you asked for a while ago, if yes, I would be interested in them too. Please can you answer me in this matter I also sent you this via PM, but don't know if it reached you. Regards John Dohmen.

      The photos not used had other people in them so could not be published, you could contact John at scale warship who would be able to burn you a copy or see us at the nationals in a few weeks.

  3. Builders Model HIJMS YASHIMA !

    Well Dave, Just this Summer I photographed a lot of models in the Dutch Navy Museum at Den Helder with flashlight, and they were all in vitrines. I photographed them under an angle of about 45 degrees, without having any reflections, or visibility of the flash. Also the use of a circular polarisation filter can be very helpful. I have some experience in photographing, but anybody can do it, without doubt !! Hope you will give it a try !!
  4. Builders Model HIJMS YASHIMA !

    This is what someone wrote to me: Dear Jan, Unfortunately we do not have a high res photo of the Yashima here. However the Yashima now resides in the undercroft underneath the Painted Hall at Greenwich. If you enter the hall and take the steps down to your right, the Yashima is in all its splendour there. I’m sorry we have not been able to help you more directly. With best wishes Monty Hope it can be of use Jan.
  5. Builders Model HIJMS YASHIMA !

    Hi Rob, This is the building I mean, in the main hall just down the stairs, that is what I was told, not familliar with the situation: http://www.grenhosp.org.uk/ Jan.
  6. Builders Model HIJMS YASHIMA !

    Is there no one in the Greenwich area that could go to the University of Greenwich to visit the model and make a thorough walk around and a extensive photo report of YASHIMA ???
  7. Hello, Surfing the internet, I found some nice photographs of the builders model of the Japanese Battleship YASHIMA. There is one minus point, it were only a few photographs, would like to have more of this beautiful model which was made probably at scale 1:48. My question is, is one of you guys (or girls) living in the neighbourhood of Greenwich ?? and would be willing to make an extensive photographic report of this model with a lot of detail pictures ! The address of the model is: The Royal Hospital School, Holbrook, Ipswich, Suffolk, IP9 2RX. The description the people from the Hospital school sent me to find the model is as follows: "However the Yashima now resides in the undercroft underneath the Painted Hall at Greenwich. If you enter the hall and take the steps down to your right, the Yashima is in all its splendour there." So if one of you is willing to go there and make the photographs, I would be very thankful. Hope to hear from you soon Greetings Jan Dohmen Netherlands. PS: The model used to be at the Royal Hospital School, but now seems to be at the Greenwich Hospital, I really don't know what the distance between Suffolk and Greenwich is, being a foreigner !!

    Mr. David Ross, I see you were online and visited the forum yesterday, could you please contact me via PM and send me a message about my question, please !! Regards John Dohmen.
  10. dock museum barrow

    Hi Guys (and girls); I have a very bold question ! In this thread there are some beautiful pictures of models from the Dock Museum in Barrow-in-Furness. Oscarsmate already sent me some beautiful pictures of HMS Erin and others that he took when he visited the museum. Also David Ross made some extraordinary galleries of several ships in the museum, which I like very much. My question is though, I am extremely interested in the Builders model of the Japanese battleship KONGO, and would like to have some Hi-Res pictures of the model. I am planning to build a scale 1:200 model of KONGO in this configuration. Taking pictures would be difficult because of the glass case around the ship, but there are ways to get around this, for instance taking pictures with the help of a circular polarisation filter or if not using a filter taking pictures at a angle to the glass, so that you have as less as reflection as possible, in this way using a flash is also possible. I would like to take the pictures myself, but for some reason it is impossible for me to do !! Hope some of you are able to go to the museum and take some pictures for me ! Regards John Dohmen.
