  1. A few weeks ago I started building a 1/700 resin & PE kit of Ark Royal 2, the pioneering First World War seaplane carrier. However, I think it’s fair to say that, as a committed 1/350 man when it comes to ships, I am finding the scale a real challenge. The kit is great, and I will continue to build it... but I find that 45 minutes in teeny-weeny über-delicate brass-land is enough - and when I do achieve things I find that it pays to let everything really cure and stabilise before moving on. Anyway, as those of you who’ve been kind enough to look into that build already know,
  2. Hi there, I want to share with you guys the photos of my model of HMS Abercrombie monitor depicted as she looked like in the summer of 1943 during the Sicily landings. I used the plastic from Trumpeter kit, photoetched parts from Microdesign (ramps, ladders, hand winches), figures from Eduard, and Oerlikons from Alliance. I had neither ability nor desire to use a lot of additional parts, so I modified the provided 4'' AA guns mounts, pom-poms, lifeboats, and life rafts by my own hands for so much as my limited talents made it possible. Also I made by myself the figures of
  3. With the 8 month long build of County Class Cruisers coming to an end, it's time to move on. HMS Griffin - H31 will be the next, using the Atlantic models HMS Glowworm as base kit. HMS Griffin was one of 8 "G" Class destroyers, the most famous of which is HMS Glowworm due to it's fatal David and Goliath encounter with Admiral Hipper. Griffin was launched in 1935 and took part in the Norwegiain campaign early in the war before being transfered to the Mediterranean. She was transferred to the Royal Canadian Navy in early 1943 and renamed HMCS Ottowa, seeing action at D-day
  4. OK making a space for a long term build (Yes another one) but with a difference a sort of WHIF or WTF if you prefer. I,ll be using the Trumpeter 1/350 PETER STRASSER Aircraft carrier kit but going to bling it up with the INFINI detail upset for the Graf Zeppelin hence the title now Zeppelin was launched and used as target practice and evaluation by the Russians after the end of WW2 So this will just be my imagination going wild for some reason while doing a bit of research on this I found a build by Hyun Soo Kim based on the world of warships game and camouflage scheme bit like the d
  5. While some of my other builds are at the fragile stage to be transported when I go to my local model club meet on a thursday night to still keep me busy I had started on this one but I will still be concentrating on getting the other two completed first. So here we have my first Hobby Boss kit and my first pre-Dreadnought HMS Lord Nelson and as some of you may know I try to keep to ships built in the area of my home town and this one fits the bill of being built on the river Tyne at Jarrow This is how far I have got after a couple of sessions at the club this will be mostly ou
  6. Hello, New day and a new challenge. Just having finished a Sea Vixen after a series of aircraft I thought I had better dust off a Tamiya HMS Price of Wales that I have had gathering dust and start with a new challenge. I haven't done a plastic ship for many many years so time to make a change. Previous ship building was a wooden HM Brig Supply by Jotika. However over to heavy metal and my first conundrum is do I do this as per the kit, or do I add in photo etch. I have used some on the aircraft and that is fiddly enough but this seems to be an order of magnitude up from that. An
  7. Let the whistle blow on this build - I've been accumulating pieces for some months. There's still not a dedicated etch set though White Ensign Models have heavily hinted. There are however, sets for HMS Cornwall that she shared most characteristics with. This Family of 13 Cruisers were built in the 1920's under the limits of The Washington Naval Treaty 1922, with an upper weight limit of 10,000 tons. HMS Kent was launched in 1926 and spent the pre war years largely on the China Station. She diiffered from others such as HMS Berwick and Cornwall with never having a seaplane han
  8. One of my quickest ever builds at five hours total, here's the Bandai 1/350 Millennium Falcon which I've just finished. A snap kit, which was perfectly moulded with no fit problems at all, only let down by the thick and unsticky stickers. Tiny little thing, less than four inches long, but I've photographed it with a single directional light source and fiddled with the backgrounds a bit, to give it a more suitable setting... Cheers, Dean
  9. This was a fun little painting project as a diversion from Cruiser modelling. The quality of the 3D printed models are just excellent and it was a chance to try out some North Star figures. Paints are Sovereign Colourcoats and Vallejo. The funnel stays were a trial and that was the thinnest stretched sprue I could manage. The B6 (light blue) boat has no rudder as this will be planted in the Berwick dio Thanks for looking Rob
  10. After the Graf Spee, what else could I assemble but the HMS Exeter. I got the kit several months ago, and have been adding some aftermarkets for a better experience, like: 1. Eduard Big Ed PE, 2. Infini models Brass Masts, 3. Scale Chain 4. Master Model 8" barrels 5. Master Model 4" barrels 6. Wooden base (same as used for the Graf Spee) it will be a waterline model The length of the HMS Exeter vs the Graf Spee surprised me, it does not seem too much shorter. Marco
  11. Hi guys, welcome to my proposed build for 2021, after I have finished my tug that is. As the title says, this will be a scratch build of the Japanese steam ship, Fushimi Maru. She was laid in 1913, launched in 1914 and her first voyage in 1915. Built primarily for the NYK’s European Routes with a typical routing in the 1920s were Yokohama, Kobe, Moji, Shanghai, Hong Kong, Singapore, Malacca, Penang, Colombo, Aden, Suez, Port Said, Naples, Marseilles, Gibraltar and London. Why may ask, why this ship? It’s a family history connection where sometime after WW1, a Span
  12. Took a while but it eventually turned up from Ukraine Shame they got the picture wrong on the box. Looks like Valiant to me Not much in the way of parts.. Hull together and a little bit of putty Rudder and aft plane on and first coat Doubt this one will take very long
  13. Here is my first ever 1/350 scale model. Bronco models 1/350 Song type 039 Submarine. The Type 039 submarine (NATO reporting name: Song-class) is a class of diesel-electric submarines built for the Chinese PLA Navy. The class is the first diesel-electric submarine to be fully developed within China and also the first Chinese diesel-electric submarine to use the modern teardrop hull shape. Apart from a scratch built 1/1200 scale Oberon class built in my teens, this is also my first ever model of a Submarine. The Bronco kit is quite basic but in my opinion has good genera
  14. While I am waiting for base parts to dry on another project thought I would make a start on this it will be my first full Atlantic models kit I have used plenty of the WEM PE sets before so this should be quick and easy The kit is of HMS Peacock there where 5 of these patrol craft used in the 80s and early 90s but when the handover of Hong Kong came about the Royal Navy sold them off 3 to the Philippines and 2 to Irish navy I will be attempting to do as HMS SWIFT one of the two that went to the Irish Navy If anybody has some information on these ships please feel free to add
  15. So with work on the Vosper continuing, and a couple of other "offline" projects going on (each of which will get an RFI), I decided to start my first ever venture into 1/350 scale maritime modelling. I have great ambitions for this scale, having watched others on here producing superb examples, @robgizlu, @Ex-FAAWAFU, @beefy66, @Courageous, @longshanks and @Nick Charnock to name just a few. You have all conspired to inspire me into this scale, so in short, this is your fault! I wanted a quick subject - is there such a thing as a quick Terry build I hear you ask? Well, surely a 1/35
  16. Hello Everybody, Since January this year I have picked up once more the hobby of scale modelling. Until 6 years ago I had already occupied myself with making ships and right now I needed an extra hobby aside of playing games, reading books and playing the pipe organ and stuff so I decided to pick up where I left and add some extra skills to my toolbox, (I never Painted in the past), get myself an airbrush an kickstart myself into building ships once more. Since corona gave me a load of free time I went to the hobby shop and bought several kits among which were, the 1/700 USS west

  18. Picked this one up from a well known auction site Hull is already formed.. No motor in the box unfortunately Everything else looks good to go. All instructions are in Chinese, but I'm sure I can figure most of it out with much trouble lol Looks as though I'm going to have to make it as USS Spruance post VLS upgrade as the x2 sprues that have the quad TLAM launchers and the ASROC launcher is not in the box or make them myself Luckily I can leave those until the end to decide. First
  19. Visiting Australia last year I happened to walk into a toy shop in Brisbane and found they were selling the Bandai Star Wars kits. I treated myself to a Star Destroyer and the Millennium Falcon, the latter for the princely sum of AU$29.99: As a palate cleanser between more involved builds, I decided to have a go at it today. It's a pretty simple snap together kit: I'm always impressed with Bandai's mouldings. They may be expensive, but there's no flash anywhere and the fit is no less than perfect. Consulting with a knowledgeable party (cheers Rich) about co
  20. Decided to make a start on the Zvezda version of the Oscar II "Kursk" Nice box picture to start with.. Not too much in the way of parts, so straight on with putting the hull together.. A bit put putty around the joins is needed. Also noticed that they only seem to have put the scribed details on one side of the boat WTH - they can get sorted later on. The biggest thing though is that the rudder is wrong, OSCAR's have a dual lower rudder inline with each prop. For a Russian supplier to make a basic mistake like this is Going to have to leave this
  21. Those of you who know me (largely from prolonged builds in the aircraft section - notably a 1/48 Seaking HAS5, as yet unfinished) will know that I recently got a new job after 2 very frustrating years of unemployment. Though this is a Very Good Thing by any standard, it has meant that I have not touched a model of any sort in about 2 months - also partly because of the hot weather, which made my man cave barely habitable. The job is in London, which means that I am staying up here 2 or 3 nights per week. Aha! Modelling time. The Seaking is much too delicate in its cu
  22. Just to give the good news - that Trumpeter of China have released the lovely completed Model in 1/350 Scale open to inspection in Japan of the KuK Viribus Unitis at The 59th All Japan Model & Hobby Show 2019 today enjoy ! ( sorry photo is not clearer - it was taken from Facebook's page for Trumpeter )
  23. Well I have this kits long ago, the nose was broken due to transport, and i have to fix it. I have P.E antenna and railing and wooden deck BUT i lose the the deck somewhere, and I don't have time for the antenna , I will try for the railing thought. Need to finish this before 1st of August. This kit meant to be mine but i decided to gift it to my father in law (future , i hope) haha. So need to speed it up. Next Yamato i will but time to it. I will update soon. Just finished painting shading and high light. I will record a painting video about this kit too, you guys can check it
  24. I seem to recall a Trumpeter 1/350 HMS Exeter build some time back which highlighted some issues with the moulded on wooden deck pattern, and parts which were not planked at all? I think it was @Jamie @ Sovereign Hobbies build. Does anyone know if the Trumpeter 1/350 HMS York rendering has the same issues? Thanks Terry
  25. Does anyone know of a review of the Trumpeter 1/350 Luda class destroyer "Chinese 166 Zhu Hai" ? Many sources seem to suggest it was derived from the Russian Cold War Kotlin class, and if that is the case I am considering converting and back dating it to a 60's era Soviet Kotlin. Any views or references? Thanks Terry
