  1. Hi everyone, Here is my finished Sea King HAR.5, according to the details it is aircraft XV699 from 771 NAS based at RNAS Culdrose. Happy with the way this one came out. Here is my Sea King with other my completed Airfix models, all Royal Navy - think I might need a different subject matter i.e. RNLI or Royal Air Force My Type 45 destroyer has stayed on my work desk at the moment, for the final decals to be fitted in place. I will not be starting another project until those decals are done. Thanks for looking. Cheers, Rick

  5. Update: Please disregard the question in this message. It is not relevant anymore as I do not plan to release any new kits. Hi All Keeping in mind that two Royal Navy flight deck tractor kits have been lately released by our company (both are in 1:48 scale), I'm thinking about continuing in the same direction. But I would appreciate your help in deciding upon a particular flight deck tractor type to try next. For ease of reference, here's a diagram that shows all major flight deck tractor types used by the Royal Navy throughout the years. We've covered #1 and #4, so what next? What say you? And may I please take a liberty and ask you to be personal: which kit would you, in particular, want for yourself? (and not what's good for the mankind in general... ; ) Thanks a lot in advance, Alex
  6. Hi everyone, As the weather is cold and snowy outside, I have decided to make a start on my newly arrived Type 45 destroyer gift set from Airfix. Pictures will follow as the progress continues but so far I have completed stage 1 of this project by drilling the holes for the optional fit Harpoon missile launchers, refuelling probe and Phalanx guns which I will be installing.... I have added a poll to this thread to help me decide which ship to decal this as when the kit is closer to completion, so if everyone could pick an option, I would appreciate it.
  7. Hi, I bought my HMS Ocean (Orange Hobby) 4 months ago from WEM, but I did not yet start it since I'm resuming now to build 1/700 model warships after 5/6 years period dedicated to 1/87 (H0 gauge) scale model trains, as you can notice in my signature. (BTW, why do not visit my page on Facebook and click the "like" button? ) For this reason I'm resuming with easier projects that will make me gaining confidence in order to be more confortable to work on more complex models like HMS Ocean. Starting with some reviews of this model: http://www.modelwars...ohb-review.html http://scaleplastica...om-orange-hobby As you can see I already started working on the hull: I'm looking for a configuration with the flight deck packed with helicopters for my HMS Ocean. Right now and the configuration is not yet "closed" but I would like to pack the flight deck with the following type of helicopters: 4x Apaches (Orange Hobby) ??x Sea King Commando HC-4 (L'Arsenal or WEM????) ??x Merlins EH-101 (Orange Hobby) 2x Sea Kings ASW (WEM) 2x/4x Lynx (WEM) 1x Chinook CH-47 (PitRoad or Tamiya JMSDF Ohsumi) I'm not sure if it make sense to have Sea Kings ASW on HMS Ocean..... I'm not sure also if Sea Kings HC-4 were replaced by the EH-101 Merlins..... A pack of extra 4x Apaches and 4x Merlin EH-101 Helicopters from Horange Hobby (also from WEM) should be on the way in order to complete the original 2x helicopters of each type included in the original model. What do you think about the configuration of the air wing mentioned above? And what about deck vehicles? What options are available?

  8. Hi, I built HMS Norfolk (F230) Type 23 Frigate Royal Navy from WEM (1/700 scale resin model) about 6 years ago and now that I resuming building 1/700 model warships, I noticed that the hull looks like a "banana" shape. Any suggestions to fix this problem? Thanks in advance. Regards, Ayala Botto Facebook: "Ayala Botto Model Trains" http://www.facebook....100140160133220
  9. Hi, Another recently arrived model to my workbench: HMS Daring Type 45 Destroyer from Cyber-hobby (1/700 scale) I already started to paint some parts of this model and I'm using the following WEM Colourcoats references: WEMCC M16 - Modern Royal Navy Deck Grey, Light WEMCC M01 - Modern Royal Navy Light Weatherwork Grey It's the same WEM references I used on my Type 23 Duke Frigate resin model I bought to WEM a few years ago. This time by the photos I've seen it seems the deck grey of the Type 45 Daring destroyers is a little bit darker than the deck grey of the Type 23 Duke Frigates. Am I using the correct WEM colour reference to paint to decks of my Type 45 Daring Destroyer? Thanks. Regards, Ayala Botto Facebook: "Ayala Botto Model Trains" http://www.facebook....100140160133220
  10. Hi mates! After 48 years of modelling, I decided to take the plunge and build my first all-resin kit. I've certainly used lots of resin cockpits and other detailing accessories, but I've never gone for an entire resin model. I figured I should start with something simple and easy, so I picked CMR's beautiful 1:72 Buccaneer. The work-in-progress thread can be found here. I learned a lot along the way, but I think the biggest takeaway is that building a resin kit really isn't much different than a "normal" plastic kit. You have more work to do removing the parts and cleaning them up, and you've got to use different adhesives, but other than that it wasn't so bad. If you've been wanting to give resin a try, go for it! The Buccaneer is finished in Gunze Aqueous H333 Extra Dark Sea Grey, with H331 Dark Sea Grey used for weathering accents. Black pastels were also used to highlight some panels. The metallic surfaces are Alclad, and I chose to pose the model with the wings folded. Oddly enough, the wing fold braces are included with the kit, but not mentioned in the instruction manual. By the way, I can't say enough for CMR's instructions - all 22 pages. I wish every kit had such detailed instructions. One thing I really found useful was a painting guide that listed the correct paint (by BS381C numbers if appropriate) for every single part in the kit. Nice! I didn't use any aftermarket on the kit, because let's face it, all of the aftermarket is already in the box. It's got a resin cockpit and bang seat (hey, the whole model is resin, right?), it's got pre-painted photoetched details for the cockpit, and other photoetch details for use elsewhere, it has two sets of vacuform canopies (good thing, I made a major mistake cutting out the first one), it's got die-cut masks for the canopy and windscreen, and it has two huge sheets of transfers with no less than 12(!) options for markings. So here she is, I hope you enjoy the photos! Cheers, Bill
