Some Deck mates for the perfect ladies !! sorry !

Recommended Posts

Hello Dears,

Since my Seafire FR.47 in now in such a state...

41218693312_780d90f03b_b.jpg

Time to think about givin'her a deck mate...

HMS Triumph on the first British action in the Korean war has Some Seafire FR.47 and Fairey Firefly Mk I, Sooo

My Korean serie is on the go with another british entry,

41202093392_f6162d107e_b.jpg

I would have a WWII paint scheme with the Korean stripes But...

41202093572_e5d885772c_b.jpg

Will not have the 2 with almost the same painting...

And I hesitate between Evely Tentions or Lucy quipment for my BPF serie.

So I will make this one

40349363635_70b6067420_b.jpg

I will just check if she lasted long enough to carry the stripes too...

The offer is good, look

But I will add this,

41202093462_8b1cf3df05_b.jpg

and this

41202093522_9981bc00d1_b.jpg

same resin parts in the Grand Phoenix one !

Let's start !!

The instructions gave some Beige radio and radar boxes...

I doubt about that color, may be @tonyot can help about the fact !

However, I'll warmly thank Tony, his articles are really helpfull, However, I miss the one about the Fireflies...

Have a good modelling time

CC, the serial WiP'er....

That's not such a daft idea, it would make for a very colourful display at Telford. :hmmm:

Enfant mechant! I keep on thinking about that Target Tug SIG idea of yours CC, it just will not go away. If I do end up setting up such a group, you will be the first target to get towed. If I have told you once before that I need no assistance to get myself into trouble, I have told you a thousand times! :chair:

Hiya C.C.

             Wow this should prove to be a beauty,..... it will look great alongside your Seafire too. Re the radio`s,..... I usually just paint them black mate,..... wouldn`t go for beige anyway! I suppose a mid/dark grey case,.... but black seems favourite to me! That is what I`be done with my Fireflies in the past.

 

Cheers

Hello Tony,

Thank for the tip ! I hope that it will be half as good as your, and I'll be super glad !

After these 2 ladies, May be the Theseus deck with Sammy the stork ???

Have a good modelling time !

Sincerely.

Ooooh very nice.   I have one of these in the stash and we just looking at it yesterday thinking about bringing it to the top of the queue but decided not to.  Your build may give me the inspiration.

All the best 

Chris

This looks to be fun.  I find the Firefly has likeable lines and a robust character...

I do in fact have a Sammy the Stork figure in 1/48 that I will probably never use if you need one.

Here he is !

and the little story to go with !

26447618067_bd52146a0b_b.jpg

But my mistake, I quoted the story aboard HMS Theseus but it was HMS Glory in fact :sorry:

More to come soon, seemingly, the chin of the Firefly has to be rectified... :raincloud:

sincerely.

Ooh! I’ll tag along if I may? I’m doing the Novo Mk.1 in 1/72 and it’ll be useful to see what I need to scratch build on it.

Welcome aboard Trevor !

Thanks Navy 870,  Did you tried the Barracuda ones !

I will use it instead of the original ones or at least a part of it.

So if it went well, I'll pass a Windscreen to you.

Can't let a Firefly dryin' out on a shelf !

Sincerely.

Would it be vulgar to mention I've got quite a few big bits of a TT.53 Sea Venom in my garage?

A Target Tug Sea Venom ??

Wow, it will be interesting, especially for our Dear Alien @Martian Hale for his Target Tug SIG !!

My Firefly Mk V will also be a Korean war one, to go beside the Sea Fury.. Aaaaand Sammy the Stork.

Must now find some pics of the HMS Glory Sea Furies and Fireflies ...

Why should I not make a kit OOB ??

Sincerely.
