Oakville,s Flower

Oakville's Flower. Flower class corvette. (Short Forecastle) The build. Always wanted to convert the Revell 1/144 Snowberry Corvette since it came out but had never built up the courage to start. I have made the 1/72 kit using “Flightpath,s” detail sets many years ago. (Still have it. HMS Bluebell) ...

HEIEN Under new managment

Under New Owners. Hi all, Bought this kit as I thought it was cheap for a 1/144 scale ship of this size. After deciding to buy the deck overlay, that almost doubled the price! but I'd never tried a deck overlay before. After a bit of research, I decided to build it as “Heien” as used by the Japanese...

CMB 213

Hi all, Looks like I got my alphabet wrong, CMB instead of HDML. No matter. Bought & built the Brengun Tupolev G-5 torpedo boat a while back and thought about reworking it to a CMB. Well, I obtained a second Brengun boat to give it a try. After studying some photos & dimensions, (the 55ft CM...

Vanguard Fund Raising Appeal.

Fund raising appeal. Looking for funds to repaint a much-neglected exhibit at the museum. (Maybe a winner of some high paying competition) If and when funds are raised it would then be a difficult decision on whether to finish it as is, or to repaint it as the iconic BEA scheme. Also, will have to r...

I had originally made it as a full hull displayed on the kit supplied stand however, after making my model of the” Kriegsfischkutter...

A loving fairwell

As usual the Neomega kit is lovely. Now cast not just in resin and PE brass but a lot of 3D printed parts. Now, I'm not quite sure I like the 3D parts as they tend to be brittle and need very cautious cutting out and some of them are TINY. Also, there are some parts that could have been added to the...
