Airfix HMS Cossack

Recommended Posts

My first ship in a very, very long time! A 1/600 Airfix Cossack with Atlantic Models PE and a few scratch built bits. I have modelled her as close as I can to her May 1941 build (minus splinter shields).

Probably 50 years since I built Cossack, seeing this lovely job, I'm tempted to try & find another, this time with  some PE, & a bit more skill. As you've shown so well, skill & PE takes this old girl to another level. :)

So you actually can make a silk purse from a sows ear then. 
To be fair she wasn’t a bad kit for her time and you’ve proved it can still be a lovely model

 

I still dream of a Tribal in a modern state of the art mould, accurate and in 1/72 which must be about as big as you could go

 

thanks for showing

I’d have to buy such a kit, if it ever showed up. I’d even take a 1/144 scale Tribal, or 3! Revell, where are you?

Gidday Worms, your work on the guns, tubes, and PE has certainly made a big improvement. Well done. Regards, Jeff.

Very nice rendition of this kit. Lovely update to what was a basic starting point. I learnt some stuff from your build thread too.

 

All the best, Ray

Thanks chaps, I  thoroughly enjoyed the build and the research that went with it...not to mention the help that you gave me, most appreciated!

Really nicely done and it goes to show that you don;t need a £50+ state of the art modern kit to produce something that looks really good.  COSSACK was my very first kit back in the 60s.  I must see if I can get hold of another one and super detail her.

One of the members of our local model club has just built a RC 1/72 tribal in which he 3D printed all of the parts.  He did say at the last club night that since he has the plans he could now produce a kit of anyone wanted one!

Steve , sounds so familiar. I remember HMS Cossack as one of my earlier naval efforts. Devonshire and the German navies Rommel
