  1. Good luck! Be interested to know how you get on.
  2. Hi John, I’m afraid I couldn’t find anything specific. Best bet is as Kev says, science museum or Greenwich. I did wonder about the Royal Navy Museum at Portsmouth as well? Sorry I can’t be more help. Cheers Nick
  3. I’m not sure to be honest, I’ll check to see if there’s any mention of one in my reference stuff when I’m home this weekend. Cheers Nick
  4.

Would they usually be taken below for refueling? If not. would you want pumped aviation fuel in pipes from the storage tanks below decks up to the flight deck - a smaller local tank might make sense.

  8. Cheers Beefy, got to have some bling...........!
  9. Catch up pics from progress over Xmas, mostly etch detail on the turret; Hopefully the etch wipers will stay in place for painting and the periscope will slot in behind And now to a problem (of my own making). The builds been stalled for a while and in the interim the room's been decorated, tidied etc.................and I've lost the gun mask! Made a 'stop' for the barrel Tissue paper and diluted PVA for the canvas cover with 1mm tube for the coax barrel shroud Looks a bit rough close up b
  10. Thanks Wayne, I’ll give that a try. Cheers Nick
  11. Beautiful job Keith, especially on that sea base. Cheers Nick
  12. Hi Wayne, hope you don't mind me asking, but how you cut the small 0.7mm lengths mentioned above without crushing the tube? CHeers Nick
