  1. It seems appropriate for this to be the third in a series as my first 'Stash Clearance' was the Kawanishi N1K1,‘George’, the landbased fighter developed from this aircraft and the second 'Stash Clearance' the Nakajima A6M2-N, 'Rufe’, a float plane. From Scalemates, this is the original boxing from 1996. There were 3 boxings of the type. The 'Early' and 'Late' models distinguished by their engines and the prototype with 2, 2-blade contra rotating propellers. This is the 'Late' version. Typical Hasegawa fare of the time, accurate, easy to build, good fit and not many parts. Interior detail
  2. From Scalemates, this is the original boxing from 1994. Typical Hasegawa fare of the time. Accurate, easy to build, good fit and not many parts. Interior detail is basic as are the decals. The model is OOB with only the addition of Tamiya tape harness and Uschi thread for aerial wire. Colours are from the White Ensign range (now sold by Jamie@Sovereigh Hobbies I believe) ACJ17 Nakajima Amber Grey(Ame-iro), ACJ08 Mitsubishi Cowl Blue-Black, ACJ04 Nakajima Interior Grey-Green + Hu27002 Bright Aluminium and Humbrol Metal-Cote Matt Aluminium. The carriage was gunmetal Hu27004 drybrushed Hu11.
  3. 1.From Scalemates this is a 1997 reissue of a 1977 release. It's described as a 'Special Series' presumeably because you get a pre painted canopy..which is fine if the colour they use is the same as yours. I'll leave you to judge. 2.My spreadsheet of reviews reads for this, "Basic with sparse cockpit-despite the small size of the canopy a fair bit can still be seen- and shallow u/c bays but accurate and easy to assemble.The parts are all crisply moulded and their breakdown is conventional. Good fit." I would agree with that but add "not many parts which means small detail
  4. As you can see after the RFIs on the PZL P.7 and Junkers F.13 my model making is devoid of themes, fads, eras or types, it just happens..ish. This will be my first WIP on here so a couple of caveats. 1. I am an assembler not a modeller tho I strive for betterment and 2. the choice of kit was part COVID enforced but mostly a clearout of the stash. After the tiny pieces of the PZL and the issues with the F.13, I wanted a straightforward kit with no issues OOB but hopefully with something that piqued my interest, a USP if you will. I considered the Trumpeter Wyvern and Gannet as well as
  5. Hello all. I have just finished a build of the White Ensign Round Table Class Trawler over on the Made in Britain II Group Build on this fine forum. If you are interested it is here: http://www.britmodeller.com/forums/index.php?/topic/235023311-round-table-class-trawler-finished/ I got this just before the sad closure of White Ensign, and it was one of the best £9.99's I have spent. It was a fabulous kit to build, and I only had one or two minor hitches with it, and they were reasonably easy to solve. I think I should have used Caenis thread to rig it rather than EZ-Lin
  6. Hello all! This will be unusual, me starting a second build in a Group Build! I have decided to go for something REALLY big this time: And to prove it is HUGE: Hmm...anyway, the detail parts next and the etch of course: Now, considering the size of the etch, how about these instructions? A whole A4 sheet for the etch fittings only. I did not think there were that many on the fret! It will be a while before I start this one, I have ordered a set of Colourcoats paint from
  7. I started this kit in 2014. It's actually the reason I was put in touch with White Ensign Models' liquidator - I had just bought the kit from WEM but was going to buy the paint later, then they announced they had ceased trading a week later! I've never run any threads on this, just chipping away at it on and off in my own time. Due to WEM's demise I bought Flyhawk's detail-up set and their resin turrets to go with, but ended up needing a WEM set later when they were back in production. The deck is from Pontos Model and that was a liberation from Sovereign stock also. As we all know, I did
  8. I'm calling this one done. It's the now aging Trumpeter 1/350 kit #05302. The kit does need a bit of work but it's the only game in town for Britain's favourite warship and is therefore worth the effort. The turrets were replaced with Flyhawk HMS Hood Super Upgrade Set FH350099 which also came with range finders, UP launchers, blast bags and search light platforms. I started off detailing it with Flyhawk 350098 which whilst nice where it's nice, is also lacking in many ways in terms of the parts themselves. The instructions were poor by current standards. Happily White Ensign Model
  9. HMS Coventry 1941 1:700 White Ensign Models The C Class was a group of Royal Navy light cruisers developed from the preceding Arethusa class and designed to withstand the rough conditions of the North Sea. In total, twenty eight vessels were commissioned, divided into seven sub-classes. The Ceres sub-class was the penultimate group and was comprised of five ships. HMS Coventry was the third of the Ceres ships. She was laid down on 4 August 1916 at the famous Swan Hunter shipyard on the Tyne. She was launched in July 1917 and completed seven months later in February 1918. Sh
  10. This week I got a copy of White Ensigns new 1:700 HMS Coventry - the plan being to convert her to sister ship HMS Curlew as my grandfather was gunnery officer aboard her when sunk off Norway in 1940. White ensigns Coventry portrays the ship after conversion to anti-aircraft cruiser in the late thirties (converted alongside Curlew). Have been asked if I'd post some pix - so here they are. Casting quality is excellent - with only a little cleanup being required. The hull is a lovely single piece casting with some beautiful detail - only marred by a few tiny pin-holes on one
