Hello all! A plea for help here. I have a newly acquired zest for scratchbuilding merchant ships, and on my radar now is War Drake, an 'A' Type standard ship completed in 1918. It has a wonderful dazzle camoflage scheme. A few years ago, Battlefleet Models were going to release this ship as a 1/700 resin kit, but I think that has died a death (Model Warship's website has had a thread concerning Battlefleet Models and issues, which hopefully are resolving themselves). I have managed to get a copy of 'British Ocean Tramps Vol 1' by P N Thomas, and it contains plans for the War Drake, along with a port side camo colour plate. He mentions in the text that port and starboard were always different designs, but having tried Google, I cannot find a starboard view. Can anyone help me out please? I would love to give this one a go, and a complete scheme would go some way to getting me to cut plastic on this one! I also have plans for SS Politician, so I can get on with the ship that inspired the book and film 'Whisky Galore' in the meantime! Thanks for any help you can muster, all the best, Ray
I am thinking about adding a 1/72 scale RN Lynx helicopter to my ever growing list of kits to make, and would appreciate guidance on which kit is the most accurate. I am aware that Airfix have produced the HAS3 and HMA8 variants and I am aware that HobbyBoss have also made a variety of Lynx kits - and I recall that there were comments on BM that there were some inaccuracies in these. So I would appreciate Lynx afficiandos thoughts please. Thanks, John
