HMS ARK ROYAL R09


Recommended Posts

There is a 1/700 resin kit produce by Atlantic Models sold from Starling models,the hull and bridge needs some work,but the Photo etching is first class.l will put some photo,s later today.l replaced all the aircraft because l wanted more and found a couple of deck vehicles left over from other carrier builds.

Can I ask, where did you get the replacement 1/700 scale aircraft from?

The kit will be available again in the summer, when Chris built the model the extra aircraft sets weren't available, but are now.

The "other thread running" discusses the colour schemes of the Second World War ARK ROYAL, not the ship represented in the Atlantic Models kit.

Hi Chris 

Great work,i am just starting the ark royal build and found when i was pairing down the hull that is has slight banana bend, did you experience this and if so was it detrimental to the build?

hi 

    No my hull was straight,you need to straighten the hull ,it will become noticeable at the end of the build,you need the submerge the hull in hot water and apply pressure to straighten it out ,this might take a couple of goes.
