Please be very gentle with me as I haven't done any maritime modelling for years and I know this isn't very good. I picked this little Leander up on a whim at Telford this year and had great fun with her. Inspired by but not a patch on the great work by MollytheDog I give you HMNZS Canterbury. The pennant numbers are too big but all I had and I just couldn't paint the kiwi on the funnel small enough. Just need a 1/1250 scale Wasp. It is amazing that the lens has caught all the brush marks that are invisible to the naked eye! I'lll try for better photos under natural light
I am sure that most modellers of the Royal Navy already know this,but after the tremendous losses to the destroyer flotillas, particularly in the Med in 41/2,almost always to sustained land based air attack, the decision was finally taken to grapple the HA/LA and associated fire control problems,and a class of destroyer capable of shipping the required weapons. Suffice to say that the 1942 Battles were the result. I won't go into the history of these handsome ships-there are a few books out there that cover it adequately,though apart from the old Almark title by Hodges,no other is dedicated to this class. In plastic a similar situation,just the Frog Battle in 1/325 or something. Apparently never built Kriegsmarine is more sexy.... Notwithstanding ,I'll be building my own,as usual in my preferred scale of 1/1250,ans entirely scratchbuilt,with my own custom made etch. The usual materials, plastic card, Milliput and Green Stuff and Tamiya Extra Thin-Humbrol no longer make a plastic glue that works,due again to EC regulations..... The basic hull,roughed out.
