  1. In addition to the kit (Tamiya 1/700, waterline), which is not detailed, having as a guide internet photos, I also use Eduards photo etched parts for rails, scales, shutters, lifebuoys and spools, with additions of plastic tubes and sheets to create this ship. It is my first try to make artifisial sea.
  2. I’m a glutton for punishment, I’ve decided to start this lovely kit from Flyhawk DKM Königsberg a Light Cruiser. This is another outstanding product from Flyhawk and being a deluxe kit it comes a extensive PE set with a instructions all most bordering on War & Peace. Some of the PE I will give a wide berth as plastic stuff is to the high standard that you get with Flyhawk, with some PE I dive in and have a crack at. Hopefully this will keep me occupied until the black paint turns up. Just got to find a half decent plan of this class, so I can have a look at rigging set up.
  3. Morning All, I didn't mean to start this kit, its been in the stash for a while now waiting for me to build up some skills, and nerves. I was waiting for the canopy to dry before masking on a 1/48 Spitfire and had the glue and airbrush out, and I thought "let's have a look" The next thing I know the hulls been glued together... How'd that happen? I blame SWMBO, saying I need to reduce the stash, as if that's going to happen! I cannot say enough good thinks about Flyhawks kits. I've got the Aurora, Niad and Legion in the stash. They'r
  4. 1/72 aircraft: Farman F40 (even the Veterans resin one) Breguet XIX (waiting for an injected kit better than HitKit - BTW it's very hard to imagine any worse than HK) 1/72 AFV: Leopard 2A4 (Dragon) M47 Patton (Polistil or a new tool needed eagerly) M59 APC (injected, a new tool needed eagerly) M114 ((injected, a new tool needed eagerly) FNSS ACV-15 (injected, a new tool badly needed) - there are so may M113s on the market (Italeri, Trumpeter, S-model) to use as the basis for the decent YPR-765/ACV-15 family 1/700: HMS Vanguard ba
  5. Glued the hull and waterline together ready for priming while I’m staying in Hospital for PTSD in Sydney as we Zero Clinics in Darwin and also you would notice I have another L Class Destroyer in the background just to keep me busy. But wait I have a big surprise coming up on another ship build, but more on that later.
  6. My WIP of 1/700 IJN Aboba. The work on the bridge was started in 2019 and halted for almost a year. I recently resumed the work on her and managed to complete the foremast and fore funnel. The hull was cut to the low tide level of her sunken state at the end of WWII. Nanond
  7. How many of us get side tracked and end up building something else,well I started cleaning up 1/700 Chieftains tanks and the Stalwarts . These were bought from Starling Models and they do them 1/350 as well.Stole this of Wiki ,it describes it the Stalwart perfectly . The Stalwart, formally classified by the British Army as Truck, High Mobility Load Carrier (HMLC), 5 Ton, 6 x 6, Alvis/Stalwart and informally known by servicemen as the Stolly, is a highly mobile amphibious military truck built by Alvis that served with the British Army from 1966 until 1992. I'm doing Intrepid
  8. Since I’m at the stage of my other two builds atm, where I’m now down at dirty end of small detail painting, assembling/ fitting and glueing PE and small parts such as guns, masts, small boats etc. I’ve started this wee build while I’m waiting for paint to set or glued parts to set etc. This build will be a slow one as main rate of effort will be on the J Class and HMS Ariadne, but it will also depends on the weather and I’m going fishing and hunting trip for most April. Today’s wee job of adding the black waterline and which will be followed by the rest of the
  9. My latest finish is this tiny 1/700 coastal defense ship used by Thai navy just before WWII. HTMS Thonburi was built in Japan for Thailand. She and her sister, HTMS Sri Ayutthaya, were commission in 1938. Together, the two sisters represented the largest surface units of Thai navy until long after WWII. Packed with 4 7.9inch guns on such a small hull, they had a very respectable fire power. They had such an aggressive appearance that the local people called them battleship. Thonburi was engaged by a French light cruiser at the battle of Ko Chang, during Franco-Thai war, in Janua
  10. Well I started back up again as the Northern Australian build up has started for this coming Wet Season and in the last few weeks we have seen about a 100mm at both of our rural properties here in Darwin as the dry/ fire season was a little loose and crazy is probably a bit of an understatement to say the least. Will post some footage and pic’s down the track. Anyway my plan of attack was to complete for this year was too finish of the J Class, Minelayer, the two L Classes and the Cruiser. Before starting some DKM ships, but I have no cans of Sovereign Colourcoats 507c to finish of
  11. While Danton is in the final stages, another GB started on the other forum, this is my entry. My plan is to make her at full speed like here: But with the full name on her side, this photo was taken during trials, she was still named 30 then I'm going to use this: and I've drawn a decal with Nagatsuki's name for both sides and stern, but don't have it yet That's how much I've managed in last few days, between painting sessions on Danton: Cheers Mick
  12. I have also started another carrier build as I’ve decided to finish the RN Destroyers, Cruiser and Minelayer alongside the the two DKM Z classes during the wet season as I would more home bound during the wet season and be able to devote more attention to them. Hopefully once they are done a start on some DKM battle wagons as well. This HMS Ark Royal by Trumpeter in 1/700. I always said I would never go to back to Trumpeter after my DKM Admiral Hipper build, but now back have a crack at this one. I won’t be doing to much to this build in the way of PE, but just a enough to make i
  13. We're now stocking the excellent 1/700 Fine Molds Nano Dread range here @ MJW Models! We've got a few of the AA gun sets in the the WW2 Royal Navy, US Navy and IJN - mainly the AA guns, which are done badly in most kits! https://mjwmodels.co.uk/fine-molds-nano-dread-1700-plastic-parts-759-c.asp We're also stocking 1/700 Aoshima and 1/700 IBG ship kits https://mjwmodels.co.uk/model-ship-kits-and-accessories-732-c.asp All of these are at discounted prices! thanks Mike
  14. Hi there, this is my first post in britmodeller so I hope you guys like it. A couple of months ago I came back to the hobby after a long seven years without modelling anything… Since I got into model making I always wanted to build the Bismarck. 13 years ago I purchased Revell’s 1/350 scale kit, back then the best and most complete kit you could it have. Unfortunately soon after I moved across the world to Sydney and I couldn’t bring it with me. Then years later I got Trumpeter’s 1/700 with a bunch of aftermarket detailed sets but then again, after my daughter was born
  15. Two weeks ago I pulled out the leftovers from making the cancelled G3 battlecruiser ,the hull is supplied by IHP and you have to use a donor HMS Nelson or Rodney ,I ended up using both kits plus plenty spares,back to the story,I thought I had all the parts to make leftover Nelson to a more standard lay out.The first picture is as far as I got with what was in the box, so what do you do, buy another Nelson to finish is off.I have bought also wooden deck ,I have spare deck to finish off the stern.Will explain that I will do when the deck arrives, also purchased the White Ensign Models etching s
  16. This is my Soviet submarine project 701 NATO name Hotel III from OKB Grigorov in 1/700 scale. Very nice kit, the only bad thing was that the build finished very quickly, as they were only few parts but I enjoyed all the 2 minutes of it
  17. Well this GB came round fast! This will be a placeholder for a while, I’ve go the BoB GB to finish first, but then I’ll be onto this smashing little kit. This is the Deluxe Edition with extra PE, Brass Masts and Barrels, should be interesting at this scale... I think the barrels are smaller than the XF on the paint pot... Quick play with a few of the larger parts shows the quality of this kit, no glue yet, but the level of detail is incredible. I’ll be using Colourcoats for this kit, always a p
  18. Some years ago, I completed a Combrig HMS Monmouth kit and was intending to follow this up with the also unfortunate HMS Good Hope. A change of plan happened when I saw the image of HMS King Alfred in 1917-18 dazzle camouflage when she was used as an Atlantic convoy escort. I contacted the IWM Collections and purchased the photography/digitising of the Admiralty’s camouflage Order HMS 32 for this ship (then not available on-line). My local photoshop did a fantastic job of combining the port and starboard images and printed them at extremely high resolution on top-quality paper. All the tiny bl
  19. Two new 144th scale sets are available now – photo etched updates for two Cold War classics recently kitted by Mark I: Mirage IIIC/E and Early Harrier Versions: GR.1/GR/3/AV-8A/AV-8S. One new 1/350 naval set is also available now: a photo etched update for French battleship Danton (Hobby Boss). No less than six 1/700 scale sets also have reached our shelves: IJN Ship's Superstructure Wall Equipment Set, 1.1"/75 caliber "Chicago Piano" Gun and four USN Rangefinders and Guns Directors for Fast Battleships: North Carolina class, South Dakota class, Iowa class
  20. Calling these done, all 1/700 USS Ohio, 1 by Dragon, cold war conjecture along with the Soviet Alfa, decals most went on a few wrapped themselves into a ball. At 1/700 not a lot you can do, as the were tiny. but a good result for old decals with the help of Humbrol decalfix. Waterline on Alfa decal white stripe, a sharp learning curve at this scale. The other 3 are all OKB Grigorov resin kits. USS Ohio , USS Tullibee & USS Cavalla. Its interesting to compare the cold war model against the actual boomer in scale. The sail, width of the missile deck and other differences are apparent. The Oh
  21. Looks like another new injection molded ship kit manufacturer, and their first kit is the light fleet carrier HMS Colossus. The box hopefully says "Easy to build plastic model kit." So that's encouraging! https://www.1999.co.jp/eng/10638799 More info here: http://www.shipmodels.info/mws_forum/viewtopic.php?f=2&t=37762&p=796739&hilit=colossus#p796739
  22. The fighting might have ended with VE day or with VJ day, but, for some, there was still work to be done. Amoung those who's contribution continued after the fighting were the crews and ships of the Royal Navies minesweeper flotillas many of whom did not return home until 1946. My plan is to build Starling Model's 1/700 Algerine minesweeper as a member of the 12th Minesweeping Flotilla in summer 1945. There is a long discussion of 12th Minesweeper Flotoilla camouflage in this thread: Much of that discussion is based around a (rather spectacular)
  23. A second Nautilus build here running alongside my Pegasus Hobbies build of the same, but with totally different looks and characteristics of Jules Vern's famous submarine from the depths of 20K Leagues - or in this case, straight from the big screen back in 2004 and the 'League of Extraordinary Gentlemen' film staring Sean Connery. This is a hard to find and expensive kit in original release from WAVE models - there are some very cruddy resin rip-offs of it out there which I considered in past years, but having now got myself an original and having now had a good look at the very l
  24. Hello all, my final build for this GB is the Fujimi IJN Matsu. This was very kindly sent to me by @PeterB last week. He has told me that the model is a bit of a hybrid, as it does not have a rounded transom, but a squared-off one which was on the later Tachibana class, and has the bridge and foremast of the early Matsu class. I will build it as it comes in the box, so it will be a Matsu-ish. Anyway, the box and contents: Note that there are not too many parts! The instructions look to be well drawn, and with English text:
  25. Hi, my first posting on the ships forum. I got this little kit but beautifully formed, as an exercise in rigging for as yet to be made WW1 Wingnut Wings biplanes. Like everything else ignorance can be bliss until ignorance rears its ugly head and I found out some of the rigging was not worth the patience or the trials... My colour vision is not the greatest so I've relied on AK ship weathering to help put some Atlantic crossings on the ship. Problems with posting photos I'm happy with the ropes that controlled the derricks and the mast stays but when I tried t
