  1. 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 treat. In this thread's 2 page you will find my modelling guide for WEM's Castle
  2. These 1/350 Flower Class corvettes seem to be very popular with White Ensign Models doing a photo-etch upgrade set. However they seem to have a reputation for being a struggle to build. This is my first 1/350 model with HMS Kent waiting in the wings for some pedestals before attacking that. I love the Mountbatten pink scheme portrayed here The colur profile bids you use B20 as the contrast colour, though the text I feel rather more correctly, suggests MS2, more fitting with an early war scheme around 1940/41. Despite extensive sea
  3. Since I'm new here, I thought I would dig out some old builds of mine to share. I wanted it to be a simple out-of-the-box build, but that changed when I saw the body that was in the box. As far as I can tell, it was based on a prototype road car that was never produced. There are several differences between the kit's body, and the actual car. When Revell released a kit of the C5-R of the 2001 Daytona 24 hour race, I thought I could use that body for the LeMans car, because I prefer the yellow/white scheme better than the all-yellow scheme. Needless to say, that ended up not working either. I e
  4. My friends, colleagues and evil overlords at Sovereign Hobbies have pointed out to me that in order to achieve my core competencies and qualify as a fully-accredited member of the Associated Federation of Henchpersons, Goons, Thugs and Minions, I was going to have to build a ship. Believing, as I do, that building a model in anything other than 1/72 scale is a perversion of the grossest nature and an affront to all that I hold dear left me somewhat limited in my options if I was to successfully complete this task. Still, I cast my mind back to 1979 when I was still a me
  5. The kit: * * * First thing to do, trace the mold lines with a marker and sand & polish them out: ]* * * Next, for my own reference, highlight the lift-off nose section, because I'm planning to build this one all opened-up and plumbed/wired to the best of my ability. * * * Ughhh, ugly cut: * * * All separated now, the red 'scars' are where the knife & saw blades slipped and gouged the surface. A
  6. Having built HMS Crocus, I was planning to attempt HMS Clematis and likely still will. However, researching Corvettes on the web I came across some startling pictures of HMCS Eyebright and I am indebted and grateful to Mr Ron Bell for his permission to download his images via http://www.forposterityssake.ca/GALLERIES/EYEBRIGHT.htm. Thankyou Sir, you are a gentleman. Picture quality is superb and several angles convey one of the ten British built/designed Corvettes that were loaned to the Canadians. The Camouflage is the "Admiralty Light" sche
  7. I wanted something quick and simple that I could get a good result on swiftly to blow away the cobwebs and a mild case of modeller's block... and there in the stash was a recently acquired Revell Germany release of the kit that's a snapfit, I believe, in the US. The body was pre-painted, of which more later... Despite being a "simplified" kit, the detail on the parts was pretty good, so a bit of careful painting was all that was needed to bring a bit more realism. The colour scheme is a real one, albeit intended for the 2017 "Grand Sport" model. As soon as I saw it, though, I knew that
  8. Hi, Look at what has just arrive to my workbench! The Steregushchy (Project 20380) Russian Stealth Corvette produced originally by Gwylan Models, but now available through Combrig. The Combrig instructions sheets are usually poor, but this one is quite good and I think I have to “blame” Gwylan Models for the excellent photos and step-by-step guide provided, which is a very useful tool in order to build a good looking model. The first photo of this model at my workbench: http://imagizer.imageshack.us/v2/800x600q90/746/riquvU.jpg I won’t write any review of this model as the
  9. Flower Class Corvette Revell 1:72 The Flower Class Corvette is the best known Escort Ship of all time, purpose built for the task and based on merchant design to enable it to be constructed in merchant ship yards. Designed as an all weather depth charge platform they carried only rudimentary surface and AA weapons. Although intended to act as coastal escorts they were actually used in both the Atlantic Theatre and the Russian Convoys. By no stretch of the imagination was the Flower Class Corvette heavily armed, initially they carried only a single 4" gun, salvaged from obsolete ships,
