Here comes HMS Vendetta 1/350 in plastic!

10 posts in this topic

Hello everyone.

Seeing as it's coming out in 1918 configuration, I figured this was the place to put it.

Showcase models Australia has announced that their 1/350 scale V&W destroyer is in production

and will be shipping late March this year.

Pre orders will be taken in the next few days, just waiting on a price.

Alot of CAD work has gone into this kit, so it should be a accurate representation.

I believe after Trumpeter's Eskimo, this is only the second RN destroyer in 1/350.

Enjoy!

I can see this being popular among ship modellers, the V & Ws had a long & varied career so lots of opportunities for conversions & maybe after market.

I'm really hoping this does well for Showcase and I am keen to get one even though I do 1/700

From what I know they plan on other V/W's namely those that served the RAN to the end of WW2 but you could easily build the RN ships as well.

This is going to be very tempting! I did a scratch build of HMS Veteran (my Dad's ship 1940/41) for Dad's 70th birthday in 1989. Would love to compare the two!

Hi Gents, very sorry to report that the man behind Showcase Models passed away in April and at this stage I have absolutely no idea what has happened or will happen to this project.
