  1. MGB658

    Hi Folks, Here is the new build! This will be built alongside the Vosper as this is approaching the paint stage which I've got to admit is my least favourite task. Mainly because I'm C*** at it. The build will be built on Christians latest hull a 'Fairmile D' @ 1/72 complete with spray rails and rubbing strake which he has kindly let me have the first one. http://www.mtbhulls.co.uk/home This picture is the inspiration for the build, taken in Bastia, Corsica. The hull is a superb rendition of the Dog Boat hull requiring very little in the way of preperation, a few air bubbles and the odd blemish. Great job Christian. After washing, sanding with wet and dry, washing it was primed with Acrylic grey primer. Thanks for looking in Kev
  2. Coastal Craft History Volume 3 Fairmile D MTB/MGB/FPB Coastal Craft Histories This is the latest volume from Coastal craft, entitled The Fairmile D MGB/MTB/FPB. The book continues the landscape format allowing authors the space for the excellent side views. As usual the profiles, based on those by John Lambert and text are by Mark Smith with the editor being Neil Robinson. This volume has a selection of the kits and accessories that Coastal Craft sell, along with a short forward accompanied by three period photographs of MTB 731. There then follows the history of the Fairmile Company and their earlier boats, followed by four pages on the Fairmile D design, covering the following sections:- Design Fairmile D hulls Engines Torpedoes and Depth Charges Armament Colour Schemes Each of these sections of text surround the profiles on the first six pages, there is then a break in the text for some of the larger profiles before beginning again from page 12 through to page 16. The next thirty one pages return to the larger profiles which show the many and various colour schemes used on particular boats. Each of the full colour profiles, some with plan views are beautifully drawn, and comes with information and history about the particular boat, as well as the colours used. There are also useful notes on the references used if the modeller would like to go further in their research. Conclusion The Fairmile D has to be my favourite type of British boat, I don’t know quite why, but it may be the power of their armament, their sturdiness or the fact that they could, and did take on the German S Boats with some success. This volume is filled with well drawn profiles and information that will be great for modellers or Dog Boat aficionados alike. Very highly recommended. Review sample courtesy of
