  1. After a long wait for various sections of production to yield the goodies, I am now happy to announce the release of the Type 42 Destroyer in 1/350 scale. The kit comes in the usual Atlantic Models format with the main parts being resin, smaller more brittle parts in white metal and of course the details in photo etched brass. The hull is divided at the waterline, so it is easy to build the model either full hull or in a seascape diorama, without having to cut and chop large chunks of resin about. The kit also comes with printed instructions now, (the geniuses have decided to delete the CD ROM drives from computers) and also a set of decals that will allow any one of the late fit Batch 1 or2 ships to be built. See my website for more details. All the best Peter
  2. Hi Folks, I have had deliveries of kits and photo etch this week, so when they have been sorted out, there will be more former White Ensign kits available. The Flower class Corvettes in 1/700 scale along with the HMS Starling will be put up on the website shortly. Also the 1/350 HMS Montgomery kit will be available again by the end of the week. All the best Peter
  3. With thanks to Shar2 for such a great review of the HMS Arrow kit, I can now say that the kit is now available on general release. It has been a long time coming since the patterns went for casting and I must say thanks to all those who have been waiting patiently for this kit. I have been packing and posting, so all the pre orders are now on their way to those of you who have ordered one. Thanks folks. Next will be the Type 42 in the Cold War range in a few months. All the best Peter

    Addition of WEM kits to Atlantic Models

    The problem with the smaller accessories is that the patterns are scattered far and wide, so it would take a lot of chasing round to get any stock back together. Add to that, I went down the Shapeways lists and found that a large amount of the items are now being 3D printed to order, which will make casting large quantities for stock a non starter from my point of view anyway.
  5. The big news for the week from Atlantic Models is that I have ben in discussion with Richard Harden at Tom's Modelworks and we have agreed to transfer all of the former WEM kits in 1/350 and 1/700 scales to Atlantic Models for release in a new White Ensign range, under the Atlantic Models umbrella. This will also include the Narrow Seas range of kits and the 1/72 and 1/144 scale accessories for the submarines and Coastal Craft. It will be a lot easier to get the kits produced and made available now as the time limits caused by shipping things to and from the USA will not be an issue. Things have started off with the arrival of the samples for the HMS Scorpion and HMS Vigilant kits in 1/350 which will hopefully be ready for release by August. All the best Peter

    The Latest News

    The short answer is yes on both counts. Send me an e.mail and I can get you fixed up with the what you need. They are available now.
  7. Hutch, E.mail me at minimariner@talktalk.net I have all the WEM instructions so I can supply you with the one you want. All the best Peter Hall Atlantic Models Ex WEM
  8. Ok so it's a separate small set for the aircraft parts. Plus maintenance ladders, jacks, maybe a Mk12 Hydraulic rig or two, and a few other bits of goodies. As for the backdating set, I was thinking that I could do the PE and Sea Dart parts all in together, but it would only take it back to the post 1990 refit era. It would be a major overhaul to get it back to the as fitted state. Thanks for all the input. And thanks to Chris for his stunning model of Illustrious. All the best Peter
  9. Hi Folks, It's question time again. I am progressing well with the HMS Illustrious 1/350 scale details, which will include most of the original items I did for the WEM set but NOT the backdating parts such as the early catwalks and mast arrays. There will be a lot of new stuff added such as extra details for the superstructure, weatherdecks and flight deck areas, boats and handling gear. I am aiming to get the whole lot onto one sheet, which will be quite big, but still keeping the price down to around £35 to £40 if at all possible. The question is !!! ..... Do I try to include the aircraft details in this set or keep them on a separate smaller sheet, so that the supplementary set from Airfix, (if it is still availbalbe) is covered. ?? All the best Peter

    Type 45 Destroyer PE

    The instructions with the PE set will be in the same step by step format that is in the kits. Much the same as those I did for the WEM PE sets. All the best Peter Peter Hall Atlantic Models http;//atlanticmodels.net

    Type 45 Destroyer PE

    Thanks for the input on this subject. I have addressed as many of the points as I can and included a new Mezanine deck for the hangar as well as the overhead gantry crane and refueling hose drum. The access ladders to the mezanine have also been re done as well as the framework for the hangar roof. The ladder set and rail on top of the 4.5" gun is now in there as well as gun shields for the MG's. The aerials on the radome ball are actually lightning conductors or static shield of some type. There are also four more on the corners of the mast just below the dome. I'm not quite sure if etch is the answer here as they are just straight wire poles. Maybe a drilling template to position the holes for wire or stretched sprue aerials to be inserted in the dome would work.? The anchors or should I say the incorrect positioning of them on the Airfix kit would be better served with a diagram rather than a template, so I will add that to the instruction sheets.

    HMS Cleopatra, Leander Class Frigate. 1:350

    First my thanks to Dave for such an extensive and thorough review. And a great one too. Thanks for your time Dave. I am having to be careful with some of the more recent RN ships like the Batch 3 Type 22. Orange Hobby keep on threatening to do one, and then not and then again they might. I would hate to clash with them on a release at the same time, when we could have done other things. I do have Batch 1 and 2 Type 22s in the pipeline, but they will be further down the line.

    The answer to that is easy, I have a new set of RN Doors and Hatches, as well as a generic set of RN style Railings and Ladders in 1/350 scale. These will be going to the etchers this side of Christmas as priority as they are generic items. I have also solved the problem of the lack of the Mk 8 Mod1 turret. A new pattern will be going to the caster on Monday so it will appear as a new item in the accessory list on the Atlantic Models website shortly. It won't be available immediately as the caster takes time to process my order through the system, but there is nothing to stop anyone putting in pre orders for it by my e.mail. All the best Peter

    In answer to the last two questions, I would dearly like the Kryton Turret pattern to come back into the fold as it was a real b*$£@r to make in the first place. But there is a problem as the turret was also part of the Type 45 ship pattern so I would have to get back the whole thing and not just the turret. Time will sort that one out. And I am also looking at a sollution as we speak. Hang in there. As for the aviation stuff. Yes I did do the 1/72 scale PE and resin bits for things like the heavy bombers and flying boats. And one or two smaller ones two (Kingfisher and Devastator) I had only just finished the Hellcat set and sent it in. Gone out of my hands unfortunately. I will be looking at all of the possibilities over the next few weeks, and as things become clearer as to what will happen to the WEM product base, I will add to my Atlantic Models range as needed. All the best Peter Atlantic Models
