  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. HMS Exeter 1:350 Etch Set With the release of the Trumpeter 1:350 HMS Exeter is was only a matter of time before White Ensign Models brought out an etched set. As per usual the set has been designed by Peter Hall of Atlantic Models and sold on the Toms Modelworks website, as well as a large, well known emporium in Lowestoft. If you’ve used WEM’s sets before then you pretty much know what you’re going to get. A great selection of brass parts to really enhance your model of this famous ship. Some kit parts will need to have their detail removed before the brass can be add
  3. My eldest sister's husband (now deceased), served on HMS Birmingham during the 1950's. I'm currently doing research on the best way to model this ship (1952 fit), in his honour. I know White Ensign Models did a 1/350 HMS Southampton but it seems no longer available? A friend suggested modifying Trumpeters HMS Belfast which was longer and beamier, along with other differences I'm sure, but that seems like the hard way. I wont start this build till sometime next year, but meantime my research continues. Any ideas on availability of the WEM kit, or using the Trumpeter Belfast?
  4. HMS Eskimo detail set 1/350 White Ensign Models It was good to see Trumpeter releasing the 1:350 kit of HMS Eskimo and whilst it is a nice kit overall it does have a number of problems, not all of which can be sorted with just the parts on the single etched brass sheet in this set. That said, this set will enable the modeller to build the ship in any number of forms throughout her career and also provides parts to build a number of her sisters. To really make an accurate model of the Eskimo you will need to change the ships boats, which are of the wrong type, (certainly not British
  5. Good morning! The postman dropped off the photo-etch pieces this morning so I thought I might as well start So, the base kit will be the old Airfix 1:72 Avro Vulcan, with aftermarket bits including: -Freightdog Resin 201 Series Tailpipes -White Ensign Models (WEM) Vulcan Interior -WEM Vulcan Exterior -WEM Vulcan Bomb Bay This build will be significant for two reasons; first of all, with AS exams starting in two weeks and proceeding over the next couple of months, it will be something to keep me sane! Secondly, it will be the first build where I've already had a go at doing some build-
  6. To be fair, the absolute last thing I needed was another ship project on the go, but I got talked in to it through a Facebook group I co-admin which initiated a group build themed on the Battle of the Atlantic. Being an admin, I thought it bad form not to join in, but realised that finishing a ship would be good for me so decided a fresh start with lowered aspirational standards might actually help. I therefore took a bit of a detour on the way home from Duxford in July and dropped in at Hannants in Lowestoft. In retrospect, there are postal companies available which would have saved an enour
  7. It's a very soggy day in Aberdeenshire today and therefore one purpose made for model making indoors! It has taken me far too long to get around to having a more formalised presence here on Britmodeller and hope to share some of what we're doing both in the UK and internationally. 13 months ago I read on Facebook that White Ensign Models were to cease trading. This came as a shock and huge disappointment. I've been making models since I was a child with both my father and grandfather but had only fairly recently got back in to it properly after a break where starting careers and family got i
  8. The Kit: The model is of the Russian Kirov class missile cruiser Pyotr Velikiy. The kit is by Trumpeter, though the box states that it is a joint project with Pit Road. There are options for both waterline and full-hull versions; I will be building this one full-hull, and using a detail set by White Ensign Models. There are bags containing nine sprues plus hull and deck pieces; a stand can be assembled from parts located on the sprues. There is a sheet of decals, and no photo-etch that I have discovered. The etch set from WEM features railings, a variety of sensors and instruments a
  9. Avro Vulcan 1:72 Etch Sets It’s been a long time coming for someone to produce aftermarket sets for the Airfix 1:72 Avro Vulcan. But at long last White Ensign Models have picked up the baton and really run with it in producing three sets of relief etched brass. The sets are well up to the usual standard we’ve come to expect from this company having been designed by the indomitable Peter Hall they will really spice up the old kit. If you went to Telford last year and saw Peters build of the Vulcan using all the sets, then in pre-production you will understand why there is some excitement
  10. HMS Portchester Castle White Ensign Models 1/350 History The Castle-class corvettes were an updated version of the much more numerous Flower-class corvettes of the Royal Navy, and started appearing during late 1943. They were equipped with radar as well as ASDIC. The Admiralty had decided to cease Flower-class construction in favour of the larger River-class frigates as the Flower-class had originally been intended for coastal escort work and were not entirely satisfactory for Atlantic convoy service. In particular, they were slow, poorly armed, and rolled badly in rough seas which
  11. DKM Battleship Bismarck detail sets 1:200 White Ensign Models Since the release of the big 1:200 Trumpeter DKM Bismarck many companies have released detail sets for it. Now, White Ensign Models have released their Ultimate set. The set actually comprises of eight smaller sets, each of which can be purchased separately, depending on how much detail the modeller wishes to add, so it’s the equivalent of Eduards Big Ed sets. Railings- (PE-2010) which, as the title describes is a medium sized sheet of railings. Since the kit comes with suitable railings for he main deck, this set just
  12. Handley Page Victor K.2 Updates (Matchbox/Revell) 1:72 White Ensign Models It seems like forever since the original Matchbox Victor was released, and since then the moulds have been taken over by Revell, who occasionally re-release them in a more eye-friendly grey styrene. The Victor has been quite neglected over the years when it comes to aftermarket, but Peter at WEM has decided that following on from his sets for the Airfix Vulcan reviewed here, the Victor should also receive some attention. Two Photo-Etch (PE) brass sets have been crafted to cater for the interior and exterior, so you
  13. HMS Belfast detail sets 1/350 White Ensign Models The release of HMS Belfast was yet another pleasant surprise from Trumpeter, but as is their want, they didn’t quite get it right. But now, with the release of these three sets from White Ensign Models will help the maritime modeller build a pretty accurate and very detailed model of one of the finest looking light cruisers in the world, and probably one of the most famous, since it’s still afloat in the Pool of London and open to visitors. Etch Detail Set, PE 35172. To detail the kit White Ensign Models have released this large e
  14. Photo Etch and Resin Detail Sets for Airfix Short Stirling 1:72 White Ensign Models When Bobby Moore lifted the Jules Rimet trophy back in 1966, few could have guessed that Airfix’s then brand new Short Stirling would still be soldiering on as the only available kit of the RAF’s first wartime ‘heavy’ nearly fifty years later. Despite the longevity of this venerable kit however, relatively few aftermarket items have been released for it over the years. Now White Ensign Models have released two comprehensive frets of photo etched parts and a set of resin wheels to help us to spruce u
  15. Hi, I got this kit from White Ensign Models and was very impressed with the delivery (24 hours from dispatch). I have laid a coat of grey primer over the whole kit and display stand. This will be my first kit with photo etch parts and need some advice about the painting of the photo etch parts as they fit into the hull of the sub itself. Photos later. Rick
  16. Type 23 Frigate 1:350 Etch Set To coincide with the release of the Trumpeter Type 23’s, HMS Kent, Montrose, and Westminster, White Ensign Models have released this etch set. Although looking like it was originally designed for their Type 23 model, this set has been modified to fit the Trumpeter kit with the inclusion of some additional parts. Several parts of the kit will need to be modified with the removal of plastic to allow the use of the etched parts. The single sheet measures 262mm x 107mm and contains over one hundred parts. Aside from a full complement of ships railings, each shape
