  1. Hi All, So yes I know you may or may not be thinking "he's got two carriers on the go what is he doing starting something else!". Well truth be told is because of a recent purchase I made which builds into a grand (well I think its grand) plan. More on the purchase below and you can see it in the photo's. Some time ago @ArnoldAmbrose made a suggestion on my 1/350 Dunkerque build that I could do one of each of the treaty battleships as a collection. Im not sure how serious it was but Jeff - the idea took hold well and truly! So I've been gathering kits and extras as a result, still much to get but enough now to make a start. The one frustration is no available injection kit of Nelson or Rodney in 1/350 but we can hope. I think when we think of naval arms races we often think of WW1 but it was well and truly underway before WW2 as well, just not in the numbers as twenty five years before. The plan is that this thread will be the first in the series that I'm hoping to do over the next few.....um .....years. So far i've got hold of the following in the stash; Admiral Graf Spee Strasbourg (having built Dunkerque0 Littorio Scharnhorst 1940 Richelieu Prince of Wales To add North Carolina and Alabama/Massachusetts (although i have some detail bits for them). In some ways Nelson and Rodney sit outside of this as they were outside of this build up towards the second world war, existing almost in isolation. Im pretty sure this lot will take quite some time as I juggle life and hobby, not to mention the other things i have to build as well! I wanted to make a start though. I picked up Strasbourg for a steal the other day (£40) and want to build her desperately as i love the French ships but the first in the line of treaty battleships was Admiral Graf Spee (AGS). Not that she was a battleship at all of course, the word pocket always added to any introduction of her and her class was later reclassified as heavy cruisers. I've been doing little bits and pieces on the kit over the past 12 months or so, pulling it out when I wanted to stick bits of plastic together/first try colourcoats paints by brush. This is the Academy version, and imho it's not great, its not terrible but its a real mixed bag. I chose it over the trumpeter as I thought it had better lines but its certainly not great in terms of engineering. It has some parts that are nicely detailed, others that are bland and it doesn't go together seamlessly shall we say! A few photo's of where I'm at and what I have to use: Whilst watching the very disappointing rugby yesterday I began drilling out scuttles, id previously started then changed my mind, filled and then changed my mind again hence the filler smear at the bow. Seams - seams everywhere! Luckily the detail sets will correct lots of the very soft detail. Im surprised really each time i think about this one. Academys Warspite is great, clean and crisp moulding - AGS by comparison is just a bit messy. Sets from Eduard, MK.1 and Master barrels for her; I still need a deck for her - the plastic one is alright but has a noticeable join so I'll try a wooden one, and her AA guns are woeful so need replacing! So that's where I'm at. My carriers will continue to be the main focus whilst I get them over the line but my hobby evenings are normally Tues, Thurs and a bit on the weekend and AGS will take one of those slots. Thanks for stopping in, S-boat

  4. I was tempted to venture into WWI aircraft for the first time, until this caught my eye and the potential for weathering was too much to resist. It'll be OOB. (I have drilled the gun barrels out though...) They have managed to etch the grill with a very realistic 3D weave, I can't wait to shade and dry brush it! After an hour and a half... It goes together well!
  5. Supermarine Spitfire Mk.I/II Wheels 1:32 Brassin Brassin have released this set of replacement wheels designed for use with the new Revell 1:32 Spitfire. Arriving in a blister pack the set comprises of a pair of tyres, which, while looking pretty plain due to the lack of tread, the side walls are detailed with the manufacturers name and type number. There are a couple of dimples just before the raised lettering which doesn't appear right as they are not visible on the images of real examples, unless they are meant to represent the inspection stamps that are visible on some tyres In any case these can always be filled and sanded flat.The inner and outer hubs are separate; with deep recesses for the five spoke outer hub and good brake detail on the inners. The tyres are connected to their moulding blocks by a small block where the weighted flat section is, and fine webs that run about a third of the way round the tyre. The positioning of the attachments means that it shouldn’t take too much to clean up for use. The outer hub is moulded in a similar arrangement as the tyres, but the inner hubs are moulded with the rear face to the moulding block. This will require the use of a razor saw to remove them, then a careful sanding down to the required thickness will be needed before fitting. Nothing too taxing for those used to working with resin items. To aid with the painting there are also a set of masks provided which should make life easier. Conclusion All in all a very nice and simple add-on to the new Spitfire and one which will provide the finer detail required on what is a clearly visible area of the model. The only thing I'm not sure about is the dimples before each set of raised letters, but I'm sure one our resident experts will confirm they are present or not on the real thing, I don't think they should be there so could be a little faux pas by Eduard, although easily fixed.

  6. This is the one of the kits you must build before you die, a huge pleasure to build. Hope you like it Saludos
  7. Well this is my first model I have made since my return to the hobby after a 7 Year absence... It's the new Airfix Mk.1a kit that I bought from a Museum in Norwich... It's been brush painted (for those who speak Humbrol, in 29, 30. 33, 90) Ok, the finish isn't perfect, and I smudged a bit of glue on the Cockpit plastic... But let's just think of it as condensation I'm quite pleaed with it all in all! Chris
