What RN WW2 1/350 kit you wish the most?

Recommended Posts

Hello guys, I would like to ask all of you if there is any particular WW2 Royal Navy ship you wish to be released in 1/350 scale.

 

For example I never heard about any HMAS (Aussie actually...) Sydney available around in that scale.

HMS Exeter 1939, HMS Achilles & HMS Ajax both 1939 so we can model the Battle of the River Plate. HMS Starling, HMS Gloworm

davepb, Starling and Gloworm are both available in resin from Atlantic Models, I have both and very nice they are.

 

For myself I would say HMS Renown, HMS Sheffield, any Dido class cruisers and any carrier serving in the British Pacific Fleet.

I stand corrected Richard. How about HMS Wear or any other River Class Frigate?

Sadly I don't know of any, White Ensign would have been the best hope for one. Maybe Pete Hall at Atlantic Models will do one in the future, I hope so as they are historically important and offer up plenty of options .

Well, as they were designed only a few miles from where Peter lives, perhaps he'll consider it when he's finished his present "to-do" list!

There is already the Trumpeter HMS Eskimo or as HMS Zulu in the 1/350 Scale as an injected plastic Model kit

You are welcome , just be aware you need to fit aftermarket 1/350 Quad Pom-Pom as Trumpeter fitted the Model with an 8 barrel version and different boats ( they fitted German type boats to the Kit )

and the full details of the Model are here

HMS Manxman for no other reason, that Airfix' 1/600 kit was the first shipkit I ever built. :winkgrin:

I have recently bought it again, but a larger scale injectionmolded kit would be nice.

 

Cheers :bye:

Skytrex do a River class frigate and a V/W destroyer in 1/350.  They are a bit crude but with a bit of work and some WEM PE they can turn out quite well.

My first option would be a Victorious (or Illustrious as they were reasonably similar) and also a CA class destroyer, preferably Cassandra. But really? anything RN would certainly catch my eye and pull at my wallet!
