  1. Hello everybody... Im in with an extreme rarity and oddity this time. This is my first attempt at a ship build since 1993. I will be building IBG’s excellent 1/700 scale kit. This ship has a personal connection to me as an Uncle of mine served on her during the war. Edwin Wojtas was 16 years old in 1940 when he crossed into Canada illegally and joined the Polish Navy in Exile. The Polish navy operated as part of the Royal Navy during the war. After his training he was assigned as a Fire control-man on board the Kujawiak. He sailed on multiple convoys as escort, he went to the US
  2. The Build log is here https://www.britmodeller.com/forums/index.php?/topic/235070426-1350-hms-kent-county-class-cruiser-1941/ Thanks are due to Richard Dennis @dickrd and Jamie Duff @Jamie @ Sovereign Hobbies for their considerable input into the Colour scheme, which differs substantially from previous interpretations. I've made extensive use of 3 D printed items from https://micromaster.co.nz/ which IMHO have set new standards in small scale detailed realism
  3. Hi everyone This is my Revell 1/72 EH-101 Merlin HM.1 representing the aircraft ZH860. The Kit had incredibly good detail, it had raised rivets along the sides of the aircraft but not the top or bottom. The fit was very good and required minimal filling and sanding. I drilled small holes into the stairs (if that is what they are called) at the side to try copy how it looked in pictures. The decals where good and conformed well to the surface detail. For weathering, I used panel liner to make the rivets more visible and oil paint to add small oil leaks and exhaust stains. I also used it lo
  4. I started building this Seafire as part of the Spitfire and Seafire Group Build but unfortunately ran out of time. At last I have managed to finish it. Supermarine Seafire NN341/3A 886 NAS 3rd NFW Lee on Solent June ‘44 Lt RM Crosley ‘D’ Plus 1, Wednesday 7th June ’44. “Lo and behold I saw another one like the first (Crosley had tried to stalk an aircraft a few minutes before), heading in a straight line for Deauville. This time I determined to take a good overtaking speed to make sure what he was, quickly. The top of the cloud was about
  5. Hi all I’m almost done with my first ship build, the Tamiya 1:350 HMS King George V. It’s been a brilliant build so far, but due to my relative inexperience In the World of ship modelling I’m not really sure how to go on from here in terms of weathering and finishing the model. Could anyone give me any tips as to how to continue from here? Cheers Luke Rutter
  6. Hi guys n gals. Gonna dive in. I started a Dynavector 1:48 scale Scimitar a month ago. Lockdown and Corona Builds have slowed me down in my usual build speed what with doing dishes mopping the floors vaccuuming and cooking for the Boss so she lets me do nothing but sit with planes well I’m still new to posting here so I’ll try and figure out how to post wip pics.
  7. This is one of my older models - HMS "Zinnia" build with the help of the WEM photo-etched set. The model took silver medal from the European Championship Class "C" in 2014
  8. Hi guys, I will be building the Airfix 1/48 Buccaneer in Royal Navy colors. There will be some extra decals for it from Xtra decals and a few foto etch sets plus 2 resin bangseats from Neomega and some resin intakes. I will put on some pictures at a later date. Cheers,
  9. Now this is a bit different. I picked this up several years ago on a visit to Hannants at Colindale as I noticed one of the liveries provided was for a Royal Navy glider. I recalled that I had it a few days ago and thought if I could dig it out of the stash it would be a quick build and get done now I'm almost finished my other contributions. It's only got 11 parts and a canopy, pretty much one colour, no etch, no resin and only 4 transfers to go on. So it was found in a pile on the top shelf and out it came. A simple simple set of instructions on one pag
  10. On 20.11.1941 Lt P N Charlton flying Hawker Hurricane I (Trop.) W9327 OL*W of the Royal Navy Desert Fighter Flight intercepted and destroyed three Ju87s. Later in the same flight Charlton was hot down by a 'friendly' Tomahawk, later awarded DFC by RAF. This is my representation of Charlton Hurricane. I must thank and both @Beard and @tonyot for their help with the general appearance of this aircraft. Kit is the Airfix 1/48 Hurricane MkI(Trop.) boxing, paint is Xtracrylics, decals came from the kit or from Xtradecal generic set, the Squadron codes were spr
  11. Hi all. I'm new to this community and this is only my second thread, the first being on the intros section, but thought I'd jump straight in with a completed build. I was half way through this when I joined up and the build was being documented elsewehere and I thought I'd post here for your amusement and / or pleasure. Hope you like it. If I can get to grips with this photo hosting I'll see if I can't share a build or two.
  12. Seeing all the great Models in the group build persuaded me to get involved, as I have never done a group build before, any advice would be appreciated. I decided to use the old sky wave 1/700 scale kit, that comes with 2 O& P class destroyers in . ( the kits an old one as I'm returning to the hobby after a while, and I had to start on the stash some time ). The plan was to do one of the models as HMS Oribi, almost straight from the box with the addition of a WEM etch set A bit of research later showed that the 'R
  13. Hi all and taking the plunge with this one, Esci's lovely Sea Harrier FRS1 That second plane in the pattern looks a bit close! Esci Sea Harrier FRS1_box by Dermot Moriarty, on Flickr Inside the box.. Esci Sea Harrier FRS1_contents by Dermot Moriarty, on Flickr Esci Sea Harrier FRS1_contents_2 by Dermot Moriarty, on Flickr The plan is OOB but will try to display in a diorama.. Thanks for looking and enjoy your builds Dermot
  14. Not one, but TWO new facsimiles of 1942 Royal Navy camouflage documents are now available! Similar in nature to our previous facsimile of C.B.3098 1943 edition but using the earlier Western Approaches, 507A and C and MS & B camouflage paints, Confidential Admiralty Fleet Order 679 from April 1942 and 2146 from October 1942 have never been seen except by those who have been to The National Archives at Kew, London for many decades. C.A.F.O. 679/42 contains 51 full-colour camouflage designs for destroyers and smaller ships in Western Approaches, Admiralty Dark and Admiralty Light type de
  15. Hull Red seems to differ from navy to navy. The German color, at least in WWII is based on RAL 8013 and has a very definite brownish hue to the red. Is the Royal Navy color similar or is it a brighter red? I am mainly interested in the period from HMS Dreadnought to the end of WWII. Thanks
  16. My latest finished build is the Hasegawa 1/48 Royal Navy Sea King for a group build. Used: Eduard interior/exterior set UMP Primer MRP and Tamiya paints UMP and Tamiya washes Uschi van der Rosten rigging wire Thanks for looking
  17. Budge up, shove up a bit, move down...... Room for one more upstairs? XV590 was an FG.1 of 892 Naval Squadron which was zapped by it's hosts on a visit to NAS Oceana. in 1978 I believe. OK, I've now seen that @FortyEighter is also building this bird, but who can have enough of the rivalry between these two closely-linked navies and the fun and games that go on in service life. Well I've found a few reference pics on t'interweb, so plan to build it as close as I can to those pictures, so no fuel tanks, no armament, just empty inner pylons. My onl
  18. Royal Navy Signal Flags Eduard 1:200 (53232) Quite a few maritime kits these days provide a selection of flags and pennants that are printed on paper. These can look ok, but generally always have a tired well worn look, like they’ve been left in the sun for a few months. Eduard have now countered this look with the release of this pre-painted steel set. The 36 flags are beautifully painted and will look great either as a coded message from a halyard, or even on a ship dressed overall. Unlike the 1:350 set this set in 1200 does not contain Pennants or alter course
  19. Morning All, I didn't mean to start this kit, its been in the stash for a while now waiting for me to build up some skills, and nerves. I was waiting for the canopy to dry before masking on a 1/48 Spitfire and had the glue and airbrush out, and I thought "let's have a look" The next thing I know the hulls been glued together... How'd that happen? I blame SWMBO, saying I need to reduce the stash, as if that's going to happen! I cannot say enough good thinks about Flyhawks kits. I've got the Aurora, Niad and Legion in the stash. They'r
  20. Royal Navy Signal Flags Eduard 1:350 Quite a few maritime kits these days provide a selection of flags and pennants that are printed on paper. These can look ok, but generally always have a tired well worn look, like they’ve been left in the sun for a few months. Eduard have now countered this look with the release of this pre-painted steel set, which supersedes the etched brass set previously available. The forty five flags and ten pennants are beautifully painted and will look great either as a coded message from a halyard or two or even on a ship dressed overall, alt
  21. Fairey Firefly F.I - Mission load out I am trying to figure out what would be the likely load-out configuration of a Fairey Firefly F.I on an ASR escort mission in April 1945. On the 12th April 1945 two Fireflys flew escort to a US Navy Mariner searching for a downed Pilot after raids by the Fleet Air Arm on Northern Formosa during Operation Iceberg Oolong. During the Escort mission the two Fireflies engaged with five Ki51s, shot down two each and shared the fifth. One of the two aircraft (DV119/S281) was piloted by S/Lt JP Stott with Lt B Ward as Observer, flying fro
  22. This is my 1/72 Fujimi Phantom dating from the 1990s, but built earlier this year at about the time the new Airfix version became available. The fit of parts was quite good and probably would have been regarded as good when it was released. I would have liked to fit the extended nose leg but it didn't seem to be correct given the absence of crew and dropped flaps.
  23. Hello, dear friends and colleagues! Let me present my yet another model Blackburn Shark Mk.II by Eastern Express. This kit is the repack of the "old school" Frog model. The kit offers wide choice of varieties – with floats, on wheeled chassis, with folded wing or in-flight configuration – and leaves you rather pleasantly impressed. For its time the model seems quite respectable and can be transformed into a perfect replica if you give it a certain effort. As far as I know, this model of Shark aircraft hasn’t got any alternatives nowadays. The main drawbacks
  24. Here is my recently completed Astute Class Submarine using the 1/350 HobbyBoss kit. Pretty straight forward kit that's almost 'toy like'. Went together with no real problems and painted using mainly Halfords Satin Black from a can, kit decals were used and are I based on the earliest boats when I trial. Mounted on usual base and a few figures from Tamiya were added for scale. WiP: Stuart
  25. USN Ensign Flag Modern and Royal Navy Ensign Flag WWII (Steel) 1:700 Eduard Eduard released a set of WWII-era US Navy ensigns a couple of months ago. Now they havde added a set of modern USN flags and a set of WWII-vintage Royal Navy flags in the same glorious 1:700 scale. On the US Navy fret are two large and six small flags, while on they Royal Navy fret there are four large and five small flags. Each flag is pre-painted and has small tabs to aid attachment. I'm not sure how easily these flags can be manipulated in order to give them a more 3d shape -
