Eriksson 1/600 HMS Ark Royal R09

Recommended Posts

I have just bought on eBay the Eriksson 1/600th HMS Ark Royal multi media kit, I can find virtually nothing about it and would like to get any thoughts on building it and if anything else, generic etch sets etc will be needed for it.

I am really an aircraft modeller but want this to match my Buccaneer and Phantom builds.

Like Chris, I was unaware of this kit but have found a reference to it on Scalemates. WEM used to do generic Cold War etch for RN ships, so you could look for those. As for aircraft in that scale, tricky. I don't know if the Airfix HMS Victorious had any Buccaneers that could be used?

 

Not much help, sorry!

Nope: Scimitars, Sea Vixens and Skyraiders.

Too bad. Looks like you can get some on through shapeways though..............

That is just the one I found, I'm sure there are others, but a bit pricey!

The kit comes with a half dozen of each white metal Phantoms,Buccs and a couple of Wessex, though I will need to see how good they are but I would be happy to replace them with the Shapeways ones if needed plus add a couple of Gannets. Will post some pics once it arrives, it only cost thirty quid so I'm happy to add to it.

No wish to diss a fine modeller such as @Chris Hewitt, but I’m sure he won’t mind me pointing out that the 1/700 Ark 4 was produced by Peter Hall / Atlantic Models, not Starling (as per his post); they merely sell it!  Both organisations are huge contributors to all UK ship modellers (and thus empty my wallet fairly regularly), but credit where credit’s due.
