Gondor44 Posted May 17 Share Posted May 17 I'm not a big naval vessel buff which is why I started this topic as I need help! I have several Airfix 1/600 ships, four of them being Leander ships. I have a couple of detail sets that I bought from Shapeways for an Ikara conversion ser and a Rothesay conversion st, both by Bogeys Bits. The Ikara conversion set is fairly straightforward as the Shapeways page for the set had some usful pictures as to what went where, however for the Rothesay conversion there are just pictures of the parts and nothing more. I am also intending to get a couple of sets of etch brass by Atlantic Models at the end of the month to help detail both ships. If all goes well the last two Leanders will be a Gun armed Leander and an Exocet/Seacat Leander. The only references I have are Modern Combat Ships 1 "Leander Class" by Cdr C.J.Meyer OBE,RN Published by Ian Allen Leander Class Frigates by Jim Allaway Published by HMSO I have read and looked through both books several time and still have very little idea about the vast majority of what is what and what should be on which class or batch of ship and at what time of their life, let alone knowing what types of radar or anything much of anything else. I am not completely clueless though, I do know what a 4.5" gun turret generally looks like and what a LIMBO is and looks like, but a lot of the rest is beyone me. Maybe a lot of the parts at the edge of the ship is just bollards Gondor Link to comment Share on other sites More sharing options...
