New associate member?

Two of my grandsons accompanied me to their first model show this year (Northern Model Show.) They loved it. Carter my youngest wanted to buy a model from Huw, however, Huw said he could have it for nothing. This is the result. 287copy.jpg his sense of direction needs working on as you can see his c...

Re: Like waiting for a bus

The first bus has just arrived. The NeOemga Fairmile “D” bus to pleasure. Now how to present it. Full hull or on a sea base. Decisions, decisions. The fun continues.

Re: Oakville,s Flower

The fun with this model is now complete. (Well, it was when I started writing this but found a few other details to add). Making model boats is quite cost effective but once built need to be protected against the dreaded dust and accidental damage so one must find a way to keep them save. One way I ...

Re: Oakville,s Flower

The fun continues. Made up the K178 and the name Oakville on my computer to the right sizes and printed out on clear decal sheet and applied to the ship. The reason Iv'd decided on making a model of Oakville was the story about the sinking of U-94. Photo763008o HMCS Oakville battle with U-94.jpeg Wh...

Re: ICM's KFK

Nicely done Mike. I like how you got the Ukrainian colours on. I also got some of those Hobbycraft bases you mentioned. Hope to have the HMCS Oakville ready for Northern Model Show (Yacht Club)

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...
