Hi all,

 

 I've been really busy away from the forum for a while... on with this for about 18 months now and moving house inbetween, so a new workspace had to be built in the new house before the build could proceed!!  NOW ITS ONWARDS!!😯😯

The wheel house is totally scratchbuilt and and the horrible origional kit deck was all flattened with a Dremel and started up over..

A mix of scratch building and aftermarket parts are still to be done as you can see..

 

Things still to do include, new mast, hatches, ammo lockers, twin Vickers, ropes, stantions, vents, cowels, cleats etc..

 

 Research for my Vosper 73" 380 (1944 Thornycroft) was taken from the net, various books including osprey publishing and many trips to Telford for inspiration lol😀🤗

All comments welcome and I'll post more pics very soon as the build continues..!!!

 

HAPPY MODELLING!!

Hi all, 

 

Quick update ...ive been busy with the ammo lockers ( not finished yet) and dry fitting some scratch built hatches and done some more work and the torpedo tubes...the hatches will eventually match in with the coastal craft deck grey...

 

 

Thanks ..

Always good to see these venerable kits being built - good selection of Aftermarket Goodies there Joe.

Looking forwards to seeing this develop

Cheers

Looking very nice, like what you are doing with this kit.

Just as an idea, I think you need to crop your photos as their is too much dead space above/ below your subject and save them in a 800x600 format, we'll be able to see the quality better.
