  1. Picked this one up from a well known auction site Hull is already formed.. No motor in the box unfortunately Everything else looks good to go. All instructions are in Chinese, but I'm sure I can figure most of it out with much trouble lol Looks as though I'm going to have to make it as USS Spruance post VLS upgrade as the x2 sprues that have the quad TLAM launchers and the ASROC launcher is not in the box or make them myself Luckily I can leave those until the end to decide. First
  2. Sanger has announced a 1/48th Douglas B-66 Destroyer vacuform kit Source: https://www.sangereng.co.uk/index.htm#Available Kits V.P.
  3. 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 ...
  4. Hello all, I am working on Tamiya's 1/350 Fletcher with Eduard's PE set. Tamiya's kit is best Fletcher in its scale but still has inaccuracies and fitting issues, also Eduard's set suffers from same problems. You have to check your references before installing nearly every piece. I am not a ship expert and sometimes my models suffer from inaccuracy and mistakes but I am trying my best to build them close to the real one as much as possible. So, let the photostream begin Update 29 November: Beside these books,
  5. Hello folks! Well, this is going to be my first attempt at a simple sea diorama (EEP!!), and I would appreciate any tips and techniques from you lovely people (unashamed groveling). These kits are great value and lend themselves to improvement so out with the platicard and don the thinking cap! Wasn't happy with the size and positioning of the round windows (yes, watch playschool!), and hull needs detailing etc so filled in the scuttles (smarty pants) and so the adventure begins... The etch was purchased from a hobby shop in Poland at a reasonable cost.
  6. ACE Model (http://acemodel.com.ua) is to release in 2017 a 1/72nd Douglas BTD-1 Destroyer kit - ref. 72306 Source: http://acemodel.com.ua/pages/ace_2017_catalogue.pdf V.P.
  7. I have HMS Kelly in the stash and I might just be tempted to join the GB. I have lots of goodies to add too.......
  8. All, I've just purchased Italeri's latest boxing of the RB-66B and am keen to make a start (subject to clearing the modelling bench of course!) Since I was a young lad, I've always been fascinated by the image below of a single RB-66 leading four F-105D's to their designated target. Photo's of Vietnam Destroyers in MNF seem a little thin on the ground so I'm hoping that someone can guide me to more photo's of these great looking aircraft during this conflict. Interestingly, the RB-66 above has both forward and aft fuselage Blade Antennas - which
  9. 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
  10. Hello everyone. The Easter holiday has finally allowed me to get my teeth into some long overdue modelling. First up is the Type 42 Destroyer from Dragon models. As with most things, planning is everything. After a scan of the instructions and a dry fit of the major components, it became clear that the photoetch should be tackled first. The main reason for this is because at 1:700 scale you have so little room to work with that fitting railings underneath walkways would be near impossible. The railings under the flightdeck show just how difficult it would be to fit after the flightdeck is
  11. IJNS Destroyer Kagero Eduard 1:350 It hasn’t taken long for Eduard to release these two sets for the new Tamiya 1:350 IJNS Kagero destroyer kit. Unfortunately I haven’t got my hands on the kit itself, so it’s taken a little while to figure out what parts Eduard have provided, as their instructions still let them down. Fortunately the etched brass doesn’t and there are more than enough details, both additional and replacement to satisfy the most ardent maritime modeller. Part 1 (53161). Whilst the majority of the larger parts on this single sheet make up the ships railings, which look dist
  12. The new IBG 1/700 Hunt (type 2) destroyers are in stock now @ MJW Models! Our price is £9.60 each! http://www.mjwmodels.co.uk/ibg-models--1700--kits-359-c.asp The 2 ships are ones loaned to the Polish navy but they should work for Royal Navy Hunts. I've had a sneaky peak at the kits and the look quite nice, although some parts like weapons could be improved by replacing them with aftermarket items. The kits come with some etch, providing rails, ladders and a few other bits. The only things missing that I can see are radar antennae. These can be found on the Tom's Modelworks British Radar et
  13. Deciding what to do for the future EB-66E build once I have cleared a space - its a big lump for a 72nd scale kit! Looks like a backate to a RB-66B is out due to lack of clear references to the camera positions and details, so OOB EB it is. Decided to go with the sharkmouth 54-438 simply because you don't see it often on such big birds. Nice picture of it p22 of the Aerofax monograph - but in 4 colour not 3 colour camo the kit instructions say. In itself not a problem except theres lack of an overall set of pix to complete the scheme. Can anyone help? .... It wasn't a one off panel or
  14. I have just read on www.navy.mil that the US Navy has launched PCU Zumwalt, DDG-1000, the first of 3 Zumwalt class destroyers, without any fanfare (champagne over the bow etc). They cancelled the ships christening ceremony due to the recent partial government shutdown. The christening ceremony will be rescheduled for the spring. Bath Iron Works will continue working on the ship throughout winter with sea trials due to commence next winter. A year tied up to a dock is a very long time for something worth what these ships cost. Look at the size of this bad boy, compare it to the tugboat next t
  15. 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
  16. Arleigh Burke Class Destroyer - DDG - US Navy. This is DDG-112 USS Michael Murphy. The Michael Murphy is the 62nd Arleigh Burke Class Destroyer and is named after US Navy Seal and Medal Of Honour Recipient Lt Michael P. Murphy. Photos thanks to Mike Costello.
  17. Dear Fellow Modellers These peculiar shaped IJN Destroyers were inspired by German WW1 designs. The gun armament was placed above the main deck to ensure all armament would function in heavy weather. The strange focsle reminds me of a whaler? This old kit had no portholes or details on the deck houses so I embarked on a month of scratch building and photo etch extravaganza! I think Mikazuki means 'full moon' Hope you like it? Andrew

  19. Russian Udaloy Class Destroyer The Vice-Admiral Kulakov, pics thanks to Panzer Vor.
  20. 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.

  22. German Z-39 Destroyer Eduard 1:350 Whilst he Trumpeter Z class destroyers have been getting the Eduard treatment lately, this set for the Z-39 is for the Dragon kit. Now the Dragon kit is in their Super Kit range which already includes some etched brass this set adds even more detail for the completed model. (53076) The single sheet contains a range of railings missing from the kits sets, several types of inclined ladders, four torpedo reload shelters, a number of life rings, and bollard tops. For the ships boats there is a new roof for the motor boat with railings for the foredeck, a
  23. Dutch Admiralen Class Destroyer, Second Series Pacific Crossroads 1:350 In the 1920s, the Dutch evaluated various European designs to replace the obsolete destroyers of the Roofdier-class. They settled for the British design of HMS Ambuscade. This type included many hard-learnt lessons from the Great War. The design was altered in places to make them more suitable for service in the Netherlands East Indies: a floatplane was added, and the fire control system was considered better than that of their British counterparts.
