  1. Gidday Tony, I've just had a look at the site and it's terrific. The photos will be very useful. Many thanks. Regards, Jeff.
  2. Gidday Fergus, I could see them in second post, and I was able to see the Prinz also. Beautiful warships, both. Scharnhorst is my favorite German warship, but the Prinz Eugen comes a close second. Regards, Jeff.
  3. Gidday Fergus, that's a very nice model. Prinz Eugen is one of my favorite German warships, second only to the WW2 Scharnhorst. Regards, Jeff.
  4. Gidday Guy, Bissy jnr seems like a candidate for the next KUTA group build. I've only learned recently what KUTA stands for. Regards, Jeff.
  5. Gidday, I'm sorry for the friends you lost. Being here in Perth WA we were obviously not involved but I still remember hearing and watching the conflict on the news. And I still have the Marshal Cavendish series of magazines that came out afterwards. This model won't be particularly spectacular as I don't do PE or aftermarket stuff but I'll try to do my best and to do the ship justice. Please forgive the mistakes I'll no doubt make. And when the time comes for the GB please feel free to make suggestions. Regards, Jeff.
  6. Gidday Tony, I'll admit that this era of warships is not my forte but I was planning on converting the HMS Devonshire kit to HMS Glamorgan. Regards, Jeff.
  7. Gidday Jon, I guess actually floating the model in an outdoor fish pond for three months isn't an option? Actually, my son said to consider it seriously. Or alcohol based dye poured on top of the water then immerse up to the waterline. These are just thoughts, we haven't done it ourselves so try it on scrap first. But you're right in your earlier post, with the superstructure dry fitted she does look good. And will be even better with the gun pits painted. Regards, Jeff.
  8. Gidday, it's a nice looking aircraft and you're doing a great job of her. I'd like to do a build of one myself one day, if I can drag myself away from ships. Regards, Jeff.
  9. 'gulp' - err, that's me, for one. I've got about thirty. Well, at least I got my latest HMS Hood correct as much is as known (thanks Jamie and Richard), and HMS Manxman. And I guess my 16-gun HMS Belfast. The rest have blushing red bottoms, admittedly not bright red. My current model I might redo but the rest I think I'll leave as is, bravely shoulder the forthcoming accusations of "Philistine", and cry myself to sleep each night. I appreciate the continued research of all of you, even if it does turn cherished past beliefs on their heads from time to time. I suppose next you'll be telling us that the world is round, not flat, absurd as this may seem! But seriously, many thanks. Regards, Jeff.
  10. Gidday Gaz, thanks for the vote of confidence but don't hope for too much. Most of my models are Airfix 1/600 scale, which are not overly detailed. They are (or were) relatively cheap when I used to be able to get them so I guess you get what you pay for, but I like them because they suit my very average level of skill and my modest bank balance. I don't buy aftermarket stuff so my scratchbuilt parts are sometimes somewhat crude but I enjoy making them. I'm looking forward to seeing more progress with your HMS Manchester, plus wondering what WW2 battlewagons you have waiting in the wings (or should I say, the shipyard). Regards, Jeff.
  11. Gidday Mick, there's an incredible amount of detail in that kit. She's looking very good. Regards, Jeff.
  12. Gidday, I've never seen that photo before, most I've seen of the camo seem to show the stbd side. Considering the debate lately concerning the colours of turret crowns it seems to me in the photo above that the sloped facet of turret Anton (A turret) is quite a bit lighter than those of the other three turrets. Just thought I'd throw in my two cents' worth. Regards, Jeff.
  13. Gidday Alan, this is coming along very well and I'm looking forward to seeing it done. It'll be terrific, I think. Regards, Jeff.
  14. Gidday Guy, no apology necessary. Ideas are simply that, ideas and not commands. (Excuse me while I go and sulk in the corner. ) It's your build, ultimately you do what ever works for you. Good luck with what you go with. Regards, Jeff.
  15. Gidday Gaz, like GrzeM above I'm more into WW2 era ships but I agree with you in that she is an eye catching vessel. Plus I enjoy seeing (and doing) modifications to model ships, either for more accuracy or for conversions. PE however, is beyond me. Keep up the good work. Regards, Jeff.
