Newbie (1/9)



  1. these were known as F-14B (or F-14A+)due to the larger engines and and changes in the cockpit
  2. bit more work over the weekend, with main hull camouflage pastern complete, a few coats of tamiya clear lacquer were also added before the initial decals went on another clear coat to go on top of the decals before I start oil washing them both ready for the next stage
  3. L class being built at the bottom, looking forward to watching how that progresses, as I currently have HMS Legion on the 'slipway' in my model room too. NIce work, keep it up
  4. base level all done , then the deck could be painted Then onto the tedious job of masking the deck ready for the deck colors RoeBuck and now Oribi And then the first of three coats of white for RoeBuck, I'm selecting a late war color scheme, of royal blue, black and white . While Oribi will be in western approaches white, blue and green.
  5. Both now ready for an undercoat, with the initial railings done
  6. Cheers gents, it was a bit of a slog, and Theirs quite a bit I'd do differently if I did it again , but you live and learn
  7. Seeing all the great Models in the group build persuaded me to get involved, as I have never done a group build before, any advice would be appreciated. I decided to use the old sky wave 1/700 scale kit, that comes with 2 O& P class destroyers in . ( the kits an old one as I'm returning to the hobby after a while, and I had to start on the stash some time ). The plan was to do one of the models as HMS Oribi, almost straight from the box with the addition of a WEM etch set A bit of research later showed that the 'R' class was slightly longer than the proceeding O & P class ships, so one of the models was lengthened at the Bow. Otherwise the O,P,Q, and R classes were almost identical visually deck detail cleared, and etch railing going down Now back to the day job, hopefully I will have an update soon
  8. nice work, after a recent trip to Scapa, I have picked up a real interest in WW1 warships, I follow this with interest
  9. the final results of the build posted elsewhere on the site
  10. The model goes together nicely, with some good details, the basing still needs some work but otherwise I'm quite happy with this
  11. Overall the kits a pretty poor representation of the exocet & Sea Cat leander, thought I did enjoy making the model, Id advise anyone buying the kit to purchase some after market decals to go with it, enjoy
