  1. Here goes,.....here is my first offering, an Airfix 1/72 Severn Class lifeboat. I chose to do the Humber lifeboat as I didn’t want to show favouritism to any one of my local Cornish boats, plus I grew up in a town on the banks of the Humber. I didn’t have most of the problems usually reported of this kit. Airfix have updated their instructions to not mention the infamous missing part 30 though the pictures do show it in place so I contacted them and they did send me the required second one. I have got the anti fouling and boot stripe in the wrong place, I should have checked my reference pictures more closely.
  2. The 22’s look good, my time on Coventry (I really wish she was called Boadicea) and her Seaking is when I decided to become and aircrewman, so a tempting subject when it is released.
  3. I have been mainly lurking for a while but I am inspired by the work on here. I am ex Fleet Air Arm and general service before that and both my sons are also in the RN so I am very much RN focused when choosing my subjects.
  4. As a Coastguard I hole heartedly approve of your choice of ending video, though I hadn't realised Jo and Petunia had branched out.

    Hi folks, I am returning to modelling after quite a long break. After reading through some of the WIP threads I can see I have a lot to learn. Modelling intrests will focus around the RN ships and aircraft that have a family connection as I was in the navy and both my sons are both currently serving. I am currently working on the Airfix Type 45 using a combination of the PE for this one and the Trumpeter version. I am building as HMS Duncan as my eldest is currently on board her.
  6. I am new to this forum and find it hard to believe the standard of work. I am feeling inspired to try and make one of my old cabs but I think I would be disappointed if it didn't come anywhere near this standard. I have also also learn lots about seakings (I probably should be ashamed of my lack of knowledge) and model making so thank you very much
