  1. Thanks for that. Ordered, but postage was 12 euros! Still cheaper than Shapeways!
  2. Hi Jeff, have to admit getting sidetracked by other modelling genres! If you look at the picture below, you can see that there was another mounted on the starboard side of the bridge, with an extension plate added to mount it. All of these images are taken from the Sunderland Museum Flikr site (well worth a visit Interesting that the individual plating is not easy to see, even in close-up, but there appears to be a reinforcing strip at each deck level. Cheers, Dave
  3. Two Pictures that show an unusual mounting of single Lewis Guns on the Quaterdeck of HMS Heliotrope. The first picture gives a good view of the mounting and footrests. Doess anyone know of decent 1/144 scale models of Lewis guns ( not Shapeways, they charge an exorbitant amount for shipping !!!) Dave
  4. Hi Mike, Have you tried contacting Ross Watton direct to see if he can let you heve larger versions of his drawings? Cheers, Dave
  5. Hi Rob, sorry for the delay in responding. I've not forgotten , but I've been a little distracted lately! Cheers, Dave
  6. Hi Mike, very impressive. I assume this is a ruse to keep out of the way of all of these grockles flooding your area> I'll PM you later, Cheers, Dave
  7. Many thanks Tim. Some good information. Dave
  8. Hi, the hull conversion is pretty straightforward. There are a few websites that I used for information, and the results of my "becalmed" efforts are here : There are also a couple of essential references, Flower Class Corvettes by John Lambert and Les Brown (Ship Craft series) Warship Perspectives - Flower Class Corvettes in World War Two by John Lambert. Hope that helps, Dave P.S. This Website is useful> https://www.tapatalk.com/groups/theflowerclasscorvetteforums/flower-class-corvette-images-f70/
  9. Hi Tim, Many thanks for that. Looking forward to reading the articles. Cheers, Dave
  10. Eagle, Illustrious (or one of her sisters) Hermes, Forth.?
  11. Thanks for the tip Geoff, but I think the difference in scalewill be vry obvious against the waterline. I'll just have to find someone with an Alps type printer. I have had decals printed before, so I'll have to produce the artwork. I'm a bit slow in updating the pictures, but I hope to get some on this weekend. Dave
  12. Hi, Dose anyone produce decals in 1/144 Scale for the Draught Markings on Flower Class Corvettes. Both Black and White are required for some of the paint schemes. I could print my own in black, but I don't have the ability to print in White. Dave
  13. As promised, the rebuild of the bridge superstructure, and the welldeck bulkheads. I think there is an improvement, at least the angles are closer to true! Cheers
  14. Hi Niall, My thanks for the suggestion. I haven't adopted that method this time, as the wheelhouse has to support the compass platform Cheers, Dave
