  1. While Danton is in the final stages, another GB started on the other forum, this is my entry. My plan is to make her at full speed like here: But with the full name on her side, this photo was taken during trials, she was still named 30 then I'm going to use this: and I've drawn a decal with Nagatsuki's name for both sides and stern, but don't have it yet That's how much I've managed in last few days, between painting sessions on Danton: Cheers Mick
  2. I have also started another carrier build as I’ve decided to finish the RN Destroyers, Cruiser and Minelayer alongside the the two DKM Z classes during the wet season as I would more home bound during the wet season and be able to devote more attention to them. Hopefully once they are done a start on some DKM battle wagons as well. This HMS Ark Royal by Trumpeter in 1/700. I always said I would never go to back to Trumpeter after my DKM Admiral Hipper build, but now back have a crack at this one. I won’t be doing to much to this build in the way of PE, but just a enough to make i
  3. Well I started back up again as the Northern Australian build up has started for this coming Wet Season and in the last few weeks we have seen about a 100mm at both of our rural properties here in Darwin as the dry/ fire season was a little loose and crazy is probably a bit of an understatement to say the least. Will post some footage and pic’s down the track. Anyway my plan of attack was to complete for this year was too finish of the J Class, Minelayer, the two L Classes and the Cruiser. Before starting some DKM ships, but I have no cans of Sovereign Colourcoats 507c to finish of
  4. Hi there, this is my first post in britmodeller so I hope you guys like it. A couple of months ago I came back to the hobby after a long seven years without modelling anything… Since I got into model making I always wanted to build the Bismarck. 13 years ago I purchased Revell’s 1/350 scale kit, back then the best and most complete kit you could it have. Unfortunately soon after I moved across the world to Sydney and I couldn’t bring it with me. Then years later I got Trumpeter’s 1/700 with a bunch of aftermarket detailed sets but then again, after my daughter was born
  5. How many of us get side tracked and end up building something else,well I started cleaning up 1/700 Chieftains tanks and the Stalwarts . These were bought from Starling Models and they do them 1/350 as well.Stole this of Wiki ,it describes it the Stalwart perfectly . The Stalwart, formally classified by the British Army as Truck, High Mobility Load Carrier (HMLC), 5 Ton, 6 x 6, Alvis/Stalwart and informally known by servicemen as the Stolly, is a highly mobile amphibious military truck built by Alvis that served with the British Army from 1966 until 1992. I'm doing Intrepid
  6. Two weeks ago I pulled out the leftovers from making the cancelled G3 battlecruiser ,the hull is supplied by IHP and you have to use a donor HMS Nelson or Rodney ,I ended up using both kits plus plenty spares,back to the story,I thought I had all the parts to make leftover Nelson to a more standard lay out.The first picture is as far as I got with what was in the box, so what do you do, buy another Nelson to finish is off.I have bought also wooden deck ,I have spare deck to finish off the stern.Will explain that I will do when the deck arrives, also purchased the White Ensign Models etching s
  7. This is my Soviet submarine project 701 NATO name Hotel III from OKB Grigorov in 1/700 scale. Very nice kit, the only bad thing was that the build finished very quickly, as they were only few parts but I enjoyed all the 2 minutes of it
  8. Well this GB came round fast! This will be a placeholder for a while, I’ve go the BoB GB to finish first, but then I’ll be onto this smashing little kit. This is the Deluxe Edition with extra PE, Brass Masts and Barrels, should be interesting at this scale... I think the barrels are smaller than the XF on the paint pot... Quick play with a few of the larger parts shows the quality of this kit, no glue yet, but the level of detail is incredible. I’ll be using Colourcoats for this kit, always a p
  9. Some years ago, I completed a Combrig HMS Monmouth kit and was intending to follow this up with the also unfortunate HMS Good Hope. A change of plan happened when I saw the image of HMS King Alfred in 1917-18 dazzle camouflage when she was used as an Atlantic convoy escort. I contacted the IWM Collections and purchased the photography/digitising of the Admiralty’s camouflage Order HMS 32 for this ship (then not available on-line). My local photoshop did a fantastic job of combining the port and starboard images and printed them at extremely high resolution on top-quality paper. All the tiny bl
  10. Two new 144th scale sets are available now – photo etched updates for two Cold War classics recently kitted by Mark I: Mirage IIIC/E and Early Harrier Versions: GR.1/GR/3/AV-8A/AV-8S. One new 1/350 naval set is also available now: a photo etched update for French battleship Danton (Hobby Boss). No less than six 1/700 scale sets also have reached our shelves: IJN Ship's Superstructure Wall Equipment Set, 1.1"/75 caliber "Chicago Piano" Gun and four USN Rangefinders and Guns Directors for Fast Battleships: North Carolina class, South Dakota class, Iowa class
  11. Calling these done, all 1/700 USS Ohio, 1 by Dragon, cold war conjecture along with the Soviet Alfa, decals most went on a few wrapped themselves into a ball. At 1/700 not a lot you can do, as the were tiny. but a good result for old decals with the help of Humbrol decalfix. Waterline on Alfa decal white stripe, a sharp learning curve at this scale. The other 3 are all OKB Grigorov resin kits. USS Ohio , USS Tullibee & USS Cavalla. Its interesting to compare the cold war model against the actual boomer in scale. The sail, width of the missile deck and other differences are apparent. The Oh
  12. Looks like another new injection molded ship kit manufacturer, and their first kit is the light fleet carrier HMS Colossus. The box hopefully says "Easy to build plastic model kit." So that's encouraging! https://www.1999.co.jp/eng/10638799 More info here: http://www.shipmodels.info/mws_forum/viewtopic.php?f=2&t=37762&p=796739&hilit=colossus#p796739
  13. The fighting might have ended with VE day or with VJ day, but, for some, there was still work to be done. Amoung those who's contribution continued after the fighting were the crews and ships of the Royal Navies minesweeper flotillas many of whom did not return home until 1946. My plan is to build Starling Model's 1/700 Algerine minesweeper as a member of the 12th Minesweeping Flotilla in summer 1945. There is a long discussion of 12th Minesweeper Flotoilla camouflage in this thread: Much of that discussion is based around a (rather spectacular)
  14. A second Nautilus build here running alongside my Pegasus Hobbies build of the same, but with totally different looks and characteristics of Jules Vern's famous submarine from the depths of 20K Leagues - or in this case, straight from the big screen back in 2004 and the 'League of Extraordinary Gentlemen' film staring Sean Connery. This is a hard to find and expensive kit in original release from WAVE models - there are some very cruddy resin rip-offs of it out there which I considered in past years, but having now got myself an original and having now had a good look at the very l
  15. Hello all, my final build for this GB is the Fujimi IJN Matsu. This was very kindly sent to me by @PeterB last week. He has told me that the model is a bit of a hybrid, as it does not have a rounded transom, but a squared-off one which was on the later Tachibana class, and has the bridge and foremast of the early Matsu class. I will build it as it comes in the box, so it will be a Matsu-ish. Anyway, the box and contents: Note that there are not too many parts! The instructions look to be well drawn, and with English text:
  16. Hi, my first posting on the ships forum. I got this little kit but beautifully formed, as an exercise in rigging for as yet to be made WW1 Wingnut Wings biplanes. Like everything else ignorance can be bliss until ignorance rears its ugly head and I found out some of the rigging was not worth the patience or the trials... My colour vision is not the greatest so I've relied on AK ship weathering to help put some Atlantic crossings on the ship. Problems with posting photos I'm happy with the ropes that controlled the derricks and the mast stays but when I tried t
  17. Hello all. My Combrig HMS Gloucester 1910 has stalled for the time being. I need to scratch build the masts, and they are quite complex. At the moment, I cannot concentrate enough to do it justice, so I searched the stash for something a little less complex, and in the fourth hiding place place I looked, I found this: The Kumano was one of the Mogami class. It had 15 15cm guns in five triple turrets, twelve torpedo tubes and eight 12.7cm high angle guns. It was completed in 1937, and met its fate at Leyte Gulf. Beyond that, I will need to do some research!
  18. 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
  19. One Japanese ship modeler Dai Sasahara 笹原大 builds awesome and great models in 1/700 scale. His works pushes the limits of the possible This is real nanotechnology in modeling! Everyone who makes models on a scale of 1/700 or 1/350 should get acquainted with his work and learn for yourself a lot of new and useful. And inspire yourself to new projects He wrote this books And I want to share and show his brilliant models for all of you Battleship Mutsu 1933 1/700
  20. Back in around 1970 I came across the Japanese 1/700 scale waterline ship series, which was a collaboration between 4 of the main Japanese kit makers – Aoshima, Fujima, Hasegawa and Tamiya, intended to produce examples of just about all classes of ships operated by the IJN during WWII. Initially each company was allocated a particular class and built at least 2 - one early and one late version. In the case of smaller classes such as Carriers and Battleships they usually built the whole lot. Later they introduced a small number of British, German and US ships, and other companies jo
  21. Three new 144th scale sets are available now. First being a PE set for Trumpeter's popular Su-27/Su-30 kits, second – a double PE set for the rather exquisite ClearProp Ki-51 Sonia kit and the third – FuG 202 Luftwaffe WW2 radar antennae set. Three new 1/700 scale sets also have reached our shelves: IJN Cable Reels, 20mm Oerlikon Single Machine Guns and USN Mark 38 and Mark 37 Directors for Fast Battleships. Our web store remains open, the orders can be placed, but please be aware that postal services are se
  22. This build will be of IBG's HMS Zetland, a Hunt II class destroyer in 1942. I don't have much reference fo the model, so will build OOB. To give you an idea how big - or small - the model is ...
  23. This is a first for me - a resin kit. HMS Renown (together with HMS Zetland), will be my first steel ship - I've had a go at tall ship in the (distant) past, but never something this modern. The box: And, just to show how big this thing is, the hull HMS Renown was laid down in 1893, launched in 1895, and commisioned in 1897. In 1914, just before the First World War, she was sold for scrap. This build is to model HMS Renown as she was in 1905 ...
  24. Hello all! I have just finished a delightful little kit, the Flyhawk 1/700 scale German G-39 Torpedo Boat from 1916. It was a wonderful model to put together, and I added to it by obtaining the optional upgrade set with etch and three minute turned brass gun barrels. I had no issues with the model, except the titchiness of some of the parts. An example? the anchors. they had a central arm moulded in, and they needed to be cut off. Now, the anchors are as small (or smaller) than a pin-head, and, you have guessed it, one went down the maw of the carpet monster. Now, this
  25. After a very, very long build I'm calling this finished. Tamiya's USS Enterprise built out of the box except for some help from Eduard's etched set. Finished with Lifecolor paints. Cheers
