Making a spot for the start of this build HMS York heavy cruiser got the kit for a bargain at the last show Bolton I managed to get to before everything fell apart. Since then I have acquired a few extras ( The BIG BOY'S came around honest ) to go with it mostly for her sister ship Exeter but sure I can make them fit and very inspired by @Jamie @ Sovereign Hobbies and @robgizlu builds I will be attempting the same camouflage as the box art a bit like Rob's HMS Berwick build light grey and dark grey 507C and 507B I think I have that right. And there should be another parcel on it's way soon to help add a bit more. Stay Safe beefy

Hello to all! Take a look at my german destroyer type 1936 A mob Z 37 from Dragon. It was initially the Dragon Z39 Kit with some modifications (less small AA Guns) The Dragon German Destroyer Kits have also its flaws! The left anchor winch turns in to the wrong direction. The platform for the front Rangefinder is wrong. The degaussing cable is missing The searchlight on the mainmast is to big, the big one is installed near the aft funnel. I do not understand why they have done this mistakes. The Trumpeter Kits are right. The small AA 2cm Guns are also wrong - overdetailed! I used the trumpeter light AA guns with the PE Set from White Ensign! The rigging was difficult! The front Rangefinder corrected. the anchor winches View of the anchor winches as per official plan official plan showing rangefinder platform and small searchlight I still need to place the Destroyer on the "Cathedral Glass" look at Topic "WAVES" Hope you like it. Thanks for viewing. Cheers Andreas.
History: Launched in 1900 at the Vickers yard in Barrow-in-Furness, the battleship Mikasa was a pre-Dreadnought built for the Imperial Japanese Navy. Similar in design to the Royal Navy's Formidable Class her layout was typical of the penultimate pre-dreadnought classes, with main armament consisting of two twin-turrets located fore and aft, and secondary guns housed in main deck box batteries. Mikasa served as Vice-Admiral Togo's flagship and had an eventful career, seeing action in the battles of Port Arthur, Yellow Sea and the decisive Battle of Tsushima. A magazine explosion caused her to sink at anchor, but was eventually re-floated and returned to service as a coastal defence ship. Her eventual fate was to be preserved as a museum ship - the only surviving ship of her class, and can be visited at Yokosuka in Japan. The Model: The 1/350 scale Hasegawa kit builds up into a nicely detailed model, and the special edition comes with two metal figures (of a different scale) of Heihachiro Togo and Akiyama Saneyuki, but I've yet to assemble and paint these. I added a PE set by Lion Roar which includes brass barrels and a more finely detailed stern-walk platform among other things. A wooden deck was also added, and climbers utility cord was used to represent the anti-torpedo netting. Although the model depicts the ship in her 1905 'Battle of Japan Sea' configuration I couldn't resist painting her in her earlier black and white scheme instead of grey as she would have appeared int he battle, so the two fighting tops are absent from the masts and other minor details may be off. Thanks for looking in, Ross.
