  1. Here is my model of USS Lassen in 1:700 scale from the Hobby Boss kit. I started this on 23rd Dec and with some fits and starts finished it yesterday. It was an easy kit to build, however, I rather bodged the paintjob as I painted the deck first, then the superstructures and when time came to attach them found some gaps needed filling, resulting in too many layers caused by masking and re-masking using Liquid Mask. As a result the sharp details have become rather lost and the decals exhibit quite a bit of silvering despite liberal application of Daco decal solvent. it was also my f
  2. Here is my model at 1:700 scale of HMS Hardy, a Type 14 Anti-Submarine Frigate. I built this model for my father who served on HMS Hardy when he did National Service with the Royal Navy in the late 1950s. The model portrays HMS Hardy as she appeared at that time with 3 guns. The Bofors gun on the quarter deck was removed in the 1960s because of its exposed position and most pictures of the Type 14 frigates show the gun having been removed. The model is basically a rework of the MT miniatures 1:700 kit which is very basic to say the least. There is a build log showing the extent of
  3. I recently purchased Flyhawks 1:700 scale HMS Prince of Wales as much out of curiosity as anything. I have some of their etch sets which I have found to be extremely detailed and wondered how their full kit would stand up against the brand I usually purchase at this scale, Tamiya. So lets start with stating the obvious, the Tamiya kit I am using as the comparison (the KGV kit) is a mid 80's release and so I do expect the age to show. Normaly I add etch to a kit to bring it up to standard so to make it a fair comparison I will include the the Eduard etch set as part of the compari
  4. So having finished my build at 1:144 Scale I have decided to shrink back down to 1:700 scale again. I thought I should share my build of a kit I picked up at the South West Ship Show in Portishead a couple of months ago. I had not seen one of these before and was not aware of the manufacturer also there was a nice model of Victory on the stand and temptation got the better of me. I know that this model doesn’t fit with my usual of modern warships but my excuse is that HMS Victory is still in commission as the Flagship of CinC Fleet and features on the back of my Long Se
  5. Hello everyone. The Easter holiday has finally allowed me to get my teeth into some long overdue modelling. First up is the Type 42 Destroyer from Dragon models. As with most things, planning is everything. After a scan of the instructions and a dry fit of the major components, it became clear that the photoetch should be tackled first. The main reason for this is because at 1:700 scale you have so little room to work with that fitting railings underneath walkways would be near impossible. The railings under the flightdeck show just how difficult it would be to fit after the flightdeck is
  6. Greetings again all, Here is my other 'completed' ship build. This was originally started in the Non Injection GB but unfortunately time got the better of me and I didn't finish until just recently. This is HMS Renown around the turn of the century before the introduction of the Dreadnaughts. Although designated as a battleship she didn't have much wartime action but was a favourite of Admiral Jackie Fisher who designated her as his Yacht. This is the Combrig 1:700 kit which is quite excellent in my view although the construction instructions are very sparse (Just as well us blokes ditch them
  7. Masts and 14 Barrels 1:350/700 Master Models Master Models continue to build their range of accessories and barrels in both 1:350 and 1:700. Having released two sets of yardarms in both scales, they have now released two sets of tapered masts to go with them. [sM-350-89] The first of the mast sets is contained in the standard Master packaging, only the internal bag is compartmentalised, allowing each of the four masts to be slid into their own pouch. Each mast is 100mm or 4 inches in old money and are meant to used as the main section on larger ships masts.. [sM-350-90] Set two in 1
  8. So I have been flicking through this GB since it started looking at the fantastic builds on offer and now I have finally succomed and been suckered into it! I managed to find a pure resin kit in my stash and this is the one I shall present. It is the very fine Pre Dreadnaught HMS Renown from Combrig in 1:700 scale. She is very small and very fine, I just hope I can do her justice! Any hoo here are the pics I also found the remains of a GMM 1:700 British Battleship etch fret. I was glad about this as it has railings ladders and also the admirals walk railings which will make alot of d
  9. Maritime Accessories 1:700 Master Models As with their 1:350 range Master Models continue to build up their range of 1:700 scale armament sets, and they are also including the other accessories as seen in the larger scale. Some of the parts are ridiculously small, and there must be some kind of magic to be able to turn parts as small as these. [700-043] The first set contains 10 barrels, depicting the British 12” gun as used by the battleships Lord Nelson, Dreadnought, Bellerophon, plus Battlecruisers Invincible and Indefatigable. These barrels do have a tiny bit of flash that will need
  10. Hello! After some twenty years managing L'Arsenal, it is now time to retire and give place to a young and enthusiastic team ! My friends Mélaine and Philippe Perrotin will continue the job, and will offer to modelers the same level of service and quality that one can expect from L'Arsenal A new website with the same address will replace the old one on 21 February, new address and phone numbers will be indicated at this moment. But the old team will remain in place to design models and accessories! (We were too sad to leave you, ha, ha !) The output of new kits will raise significantly as it
  11. Miscellaneous items 1/700 Atlantic Models Sometimes, when building a model there are items that you’d love to add that extra bit of detail without having to go to the expense of buying a full set for which you’d only use a few parts. Well Peter Hall at Atlantic Models has thought of that, and released these two sets of etched brass just for those occasions. Both sheets are quite small due mainly to the scale, but they provide enough parts to detail a whole ship. Ratlines ATEM 06: This single sheet set gives the modeller exactly what it says on the tin, a set of sixteen thin brass rat
  12. HMS Plymouth MT Miniatures1:700 HMS Plymouth is a Rothesay-class frigate, which served from 1959 to 1988. She was built at Devonport Dockyard, in her namesake city of Plymouth, and launched by Viscountess Astor on 20 July 1959. During her commissions, Plymouth served in a variety of locations, including the Far East and Australia. She saw action in the Cod Wars between the United Kingdom and Iceland and also the Falklands War in 1982. In which not only was she the ship on which the surrender of the Argentine forces on South Georgia was signed, but was also hit by five bombs
  13. This week I got a copy of White Ensigns new 1:700 HMS Coventry - the plan being to convert her to sister ship HMS Curlew as my grandfather was gunnery officer aboard her when sunk off Norway in 1940. White ensigns Coventry portrays the ship after conversion to anti-aircraft cruiser in the late thirties (converted alongside Curlew). Have been asked if I'd post some pix - so here they are. Casting quality is excellent - with only a little cleanup being required. The hull is a lovely single piece casting with some beautiful detail - only marred by a few tiny pin-holes on one
  14. K class submarine K-12 1:700 In 1913 an outline design was prepared for a new submarine class which could operate with the fleet, sweeping ahead of it in a fleet action. At that time the only way which they could have sufficient surface speed, of 24 knots (44 km/h), to keep up with fleet was to be steam powered. In a fleet action, the submarines would get around the back of the enemy fleet and ambush it as it retreated. Six improved versions, K22 to K28 were ordered in October 1917 but the end of the First World War meant that only K26 was completed. Although powered on the
