  1. Good day Fellows, After finishing Copper Cliff corvette it's time for next maritime-modelling adventure. I want to convert Starling Model's HMS Nadder to one of the earlier frigates - HMS Jed. She took part in crucial spring 1943 conwoy battles. I prepared the sketch with some crucial points/areas: I will use some aftermarket goodies i.a. single Oerlikons by Black Cat and twins by Micromaster: It's very interesting building frigate after building her younger (and smaller) sister. Technology, military, kind of philozophy of using and fighting... I like to trace these aspects - differeces and similarities between them. Good resources are very important for such approach. To my earlier-mentioned books I added some further materials focused on Rivers. Top plan was attached to "Frigates of Royal Canadian Navy" book. Spey's plan I purchased from Naval Museum in Esquimalt: https://navalandmilitarymuseum.org/archives/projects/ships-plans/ It is posibble to obtain it by e-mail. This plan can be very usefull as Spey is one of the earliest frigaters like Jed, and like Jed she has all these minesweeping stuff. I think this digital reconstruction based on this plan: I must admit - this drawning is beautifull piece of art. Plenty of additional details, descriptions and so on. Author was (probably) F.N. Wilson and it was published by David MacGregor in 1974. Different time, different world... Maybe you know this author and publisher, me - not. I printed plan in big dimension and now it hangs on wall in my shipyard There is one more drawing. In Brian Lavery's book there is original shipyard plan of... HMS Nadder! Unfortunately, quality is very poor (small, gray an so on) but you can still check most important details and features. (BTW - have you Nadder in your modelling plans?) All remarks (and help) are warmly welcomed. OK, I know my direction, destination and ship. It's time to call "Throw the lines"! Let your hearts never fail For the bonnie ship the Diamond Goes a-hunting for the whale! Best regards, Michal.
  2. Hi dear fellows, My name is Michal, I'm from Poland. I like 2 WW planes and warships, and Battle of Atlantic is one of my "special topics". First of all I want say thank you all for such lot of inspiration, knowledge and fellowship on Britmodeller Forum. I want to show you my interpretation of White Ensign Models Castle class Corvette as rather late-war Canadian Copper Cliff: EDIT: you will find more photos further in this thread. In this thread's 2 page you will find my modelling guide for WEM's Castle Class Corvette kit. My reflections, list of modifications and so on. Best regards, Michal.
  3. Dear Fellows, Let me show you my last model. Call it air component of my personal Battle of Atlantic project. It is very nice model, well detailed and designed. One difficult point is undercarriage, carefully fixing is must. Be carefull with PE engine ignition wires too. I'm not sure but I think they are changed right and left in instruction. I used alternative markings from Techmod set - VC-13, USS Tripoli. And finally... is grey camouflage boring? Best regards, MichaƂ. PS. Some close-up shots soon...
