    Flickr should be improving as Yahoo is elbowed out and Smugmug introduce their changes - ie the pending new log in. Note though, the FREE account limit of 1000 images kicks in very shortly.

    I like the Swedish navy's modern corvette 'Visby'. Resin kit by Orange Hobby in 1:350 https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=adNtzIKd_ZI

    There is a Revell kit in 1:700, #05012. One on ebay at present in France at ~£33 quid at present (inc postage) so pretty pricey, no bids yet. eBay item number: 183354315533 ps And a Pit Road kit - Sold Out - but details here https://www.1999.co.jp/eng/image/10019205
  5. Always fancied this one - or maybe just the section with the bridge/accomodation, but too much like the real thing. Taking me way back to college days and Naval Architecture ... intercostal beams, etc, etc - shudder!!

    I suspect a LOT of their models are in storage. Was the QE2 not a tank test model - rather than display?

    Indeed, the model displays in the Clyde Room, while in the Transport Museum was in it's previous home in Kelvin Hall, were FAR superior.

    Revell 1/400 Queen Mary 2

    Rails on ships :-)
  9. What about Revell's Aida (AIDAblu, AIDAsol, AIDAmar, or AIDAstella) cruise liner? Their modern design and livery will contrast against the Cunard elegance! https://www.revell.de/en/products/model-building/ships/civilian-ships/id/05230.html.
  10. Too elaborate for my taste, I think the simpler the better, especially for modern vessels. I have some 'plain' brushed aluminium stand offs, from ebay for about £1.50 each, and just cut a slot to suit the keel size. Available in different diameters & heights, colours, etc

  12. Instruction sheet http://manuals.hobbico.com/rvl/80-5812.pdf [Lots of Revell's instruction leaflet pdf downloads are here https://www.revell.com/support/instructions.html, search on the kit number] And looking for the decals - Kingkit sold me the kit without them - for the Revell ETV Kustwacht Waker (Netherlands coast guard vessel in 1:200) kit #05240. Anybody print them for us, if I scale and tidy up the images above, thanks in advance
  13. Sure I've seen one of the manufacturers with generic 1:400 'plain' deck sheeting? (First search result on ebay attached, item#112413436704) ps Remember to use the off cuts and centre cut out pieces from the deck kit ... pps He's had more ships than Cunard:-)
