  1. Thanks for sharing ,some impressive models.
  2. Check Micromaster they do then,I have then in 1/350 and they are mind blowing. Link to site,first yes its in New Zealand the P&P bit high however its worth plus never been caught by tax when coming into the UK ,order at least 6 times now. https://micromaster.co.nz/collections/royal-navy-weapons/products/1-600-royal-navy-4-5-45-11-4cm-rp41-mkvi-gun
  3. Superb work,love what you have done, I have just started my Puma ,thinking BOB ,wrong after seeing yours build ,emailed Peter Hall for extra bits already.Notice the walkway,Aerial bases and the set of Corvus chaff launchers so far.I have the Micromasters main turrets,(highly recommend) ,ships boats and signal lights already.
  4. Hi Stuart I know why,it came to me, one of the kits must have blast bags ,it's the Tamiya Repulse kit c ,so you cut just the barrel off and drill a hole and fit the shorter barrel ,that why they sell 2 types ;Here is a picture stole of the net.
  5. Hi Stuart I used blue tak is very easy to use and takes paint well ,I must have use master barrels 15in, no bag blast covers,it's quite a few years since a built Renown ,here is a picture of one of the barrel in blue tak.
  6. It's the one from Starling models 1/700 resin plus photo etching.
  7. Spot on, Malta comes from IHP .no longer going resin kits ,they have moved to plastic ,anyway here is an up date on the bridge .My Malta survived up to the 1990's.I busy with something else ,being a what-if I take my time ,so I can get it right.
  8. Here is my 1/700 Ark royal from Starling models,with a visiting US phantom.The other two you will have to guess.
  9. I have stolen this from another build ,but you can see from these pictures ,how much work has to be done and how good this model of Lifeline is.
  10. Hi Thanks for the information . Still no further forward with my aircraft,have started to build HMS Hermes from WW2, I have the harriers and Seakings ,just need to start then.
  11. First thing these are horrible kits to work with and you have done a cracking job,plus the sea is very realistic,I'm a bit behind you with my Illustrious in the time period (my is 1990's when Seadart was still fitted with the Goalkeeper) and still have to start the aircraft for my one,I have one small comment ,hope you don't mind, Royal Navy never flew the Union Jack at sea ,only when in harbour or at anchor. Thanks for sharing.Also where did you did your 3D crane from ? Chris
  12. Hi Mike Didn't realise you had answered this ,which cranes do you need photos on .found this ,it's the tractors I really need .Thanks
  13. Superb work ,love the detail ,you helped me make my mind which ship to do next .HMS Hermes,thanks for sharing .
  14. Flight Deck vehicles for British Aircraft carriers, the only ones we could buy were produced by White Ensign models which are no longer available, with the many more U.K. carriers now on the market,could someone please make something. Lucky the tractors style did not change much from the 1950,s right up modern times. Could one the manufactures produce a universal set in 1/700. Carriers they would go with Colossus Class Ark Royal & Eagle Invincible Class Hermes Class Ocean Class Queen Elizabeth class 2020 Fearless and Intrepid Assault Landing ships What If carriers HMS Malta (Resin kit out of produced) and 1:700 'HMS Queen Elizabeth' CVA-01 1966 Design produced by IHP plastic kit ,check their website for more details. Yes there is 3D ones available on the market ,they are only for U.S. ships. Please add ships that might have missed. This is the only photo I can find of the old WEM vehicles That's then on my Hermes model built in 2014
  15. I have just received the photo etching from Scalewarships for Mary Rose ,plus found a very helpful build by Jim Baumann on ModelWarships.com. Here is the link http://www.modelshipgallery.com/gallery/misc/sail/MaryRose-400-jb/index.htm
  16. Very different and very good,thanks for sharing,excellent piece of work .
  17. Good to see this kit built ,superb ,like the sea display, does so well together.finishes it off perfectly.
  18. WOW ,superb work,everything just looks so right.thanks for sharing.
  19. Good looking model ,excellent sea display also ,The nuclear submarine of its day.One of my favorite photos is Dreadnought passing HMS Victory and only a 101 yrs between them.
  20. Looks superb,look forward to seeing it for real.
