  1. Gidday, another potential conversion. (You, not a kit! ) But seriously, it doesn't have to be a complex or expensive kit as a starter. Start simple, to see if you like it. Regards, Jeff.
  2. Thanks guys. Yeah I rather enjoy the creation side of modeling. Regards, Jeff.
  3. Thank you all for your very kind comments. And @Bandsaw Steve, all being well you'll see her at WASMEx. Regards, Jeff.
  4. Gidday Dave, never under-estimate talented stupidity. That was an intriguing story about the model given to Miss Ross. I've checked my wallet and I'm a little short of the funds required so I'll have to do what you are doing - build my own. I have a Hobbyboss 1/700 scale kit in the stash. But I'll watch yours develop first. Good luck with her. Regards, Jeff.
  5. Gidday All, and thank you for your comments and responses. I've got a little bit more progress on the Flower class corvette. I've added the prop shaft and pretty much done with sanding the hull. It's not perfect but I think it's as good as I'm going to get it. It actually feels quite smooth. The small hole midway along the keel is where I'll attach her to a building block and later a display block, and the hole at the stern is for the rudder post. The two screws are unused from my Vampire model and I plan to use one of them here. And as you can see I've also been working on the upperworks. The long piece is the aft deck house which is in the previous photo, plus there's the wheel house I think that will have the compass platform/bridge mounted on it. Also the casing that will support the funnel, the 4-inch gun bandstand and it's support plus some positioning pieces for the deck houses mentioned. Well that's it for now. Thank you for your interest. Stay safe, and regards to all, Jeff.
  6. Gidday, from what you've shown so far I think the detail is very good. Regards, Jeff.
  7. Gidday, I've always thought that Prinz Eugen was one of the best looking WW2 German warship, IMHO second only to the Scharnhorst. You've done a great model of her. That light AA outfit would suggest to me late in WW2. The guard rails are a nice touch and I wouldn't have known that the rigging was stretched sprue. Very well done. Regards, Jeff.
  8. Gidday Enzo, she looks pretty tidy to me. I've said it earlier I think but she has nice lines. And you've done nothing to spoil them. She's coming along very well. I think you might have to change the name of your thread here - "Enzo doesn't have a clue" . Well, I think you do now. And possibly your own name - 'Enzo the Mariner'. Regards, Jeff.
  9. Gidday @Tomcat101, that's one of the things I enjoy about doing whiffs. While I try to make them as plausible as I can (usually ) I don't have to worry too much about the tiny details that can distinguish one actual ship from a sister-ship. Less time in research, more time in actual construction. Regards, Jeff.
  10. Gidday Steve, I thought I'd give this one a bump too. Any chance she'll make WASMEx? No pressure mind. Now, where's that ship? Regards, Jeff.
  11. Gidday Jon, it certainly did. And looking at the superstructure detail I can see why you wanted to preserve it. Good luck with the dentist. I think they've come a long way since I was a kid, I was terrified of going. But now, if I had to choose between the dentist and a rock concert it would still be the rock concert, but only just. I'd choose the dentist over a Rap concert however. Not a good idea Bertie, if you have to make a return visit. When you're helpless in his chair . . . Best of luck, Jon. Regards, Jeff.
  12. Gidday Steve, any progress on this? You've only got six short months until WASMEx. Regards, Jeff.
  13. Gidday Ratch, a successful experiment it seems. And the PE guard rails are a nice touch. Regards, Jeff.
  14. Gidday, nice idea with the boats, and I like the funnel grills. Good luck with the anchor cables. Regards, Jeff.
  15. Gidday, if she pulls that face after drinking the water imagine if you'd used enamels and turpentine, as I do. Regards, Jeff.
