I have made a small start on this one no I have not given up on HMS York this build will be my Thursday night build York has to much stuff to be carrying back and forth to the model club meet every Thursday night so this will be my smaller carry about project and YES we actually build models at our club meets in the art centre workshops. So after a couple of hours with friends building and chatting about our plastic projects I got this far. Next week I will be replacing the barrels on the 6 inch guns with brass rod drilling out the portholes and replacing the main deck bollards as they look over scale to me and prep work on the funnel to start attaching the PE grills. So the kit the very old NOVO Royal Sovereign 1/500 scale 6 years older than me this kit 1960 donated to me by one of the very kind club members a true gentlemen is our Eddie he also gave me the Battle class I built a couple of years ago. Why HMS Resolution because it was built at the Palmers Yard in Jarrow on the river Tyne same place as HMS York. The Photo Etch upgrade more instructions for this than the kit just the one page And some of my reference material RA Burt not a lot in the box left Stay Safe beefy
Well calling this done my take on the old kit from FROG / NOVO 1/ 325 scale with the addition of Atlantic Models PE and replacement forward guns and torpedo tubes from Shapeways. this is not completely accurate I know there are mistakes the torpedo tubes should be the quadruple launchers and the main range finder is wrong may replace that later but when you think of the age of the original kit the PE and guns do raise the detail levels to a more acceptable level and I have another kit to try and make a better attempt in the future I hope. So here she is my version of HMS Trafalgar and link to WIP. And here is a Plug for Name It thanks for putting me onto these @robgizlu Great service and so much better than the kit one. Beefy
