H.M.S. Agincourt / Deans Marine
« on: October 28, 2016, 09:02:27 AM »

Hi Modellers
 We showed you the first hull from the mould of H M S. Agincourt at 1/96 scale earlier this year
 This is a update on the first model, to show the progress that has been made
 The Semi-Kit is being developed as the build progresses, special parts and fittings produced as required for the Semi-kit.
 This is a very impressive and elegant model indeed, the model will be on display at the Warwickshire model boat show 11-12-13th November on the Wickstead club stand along with a display of other WW1 ships.
 We will also have a stand at the show and will be showing our other new release, if you require anything special that we can bring to the show drop us a e-mail.
 Hope to see you at the show.
 Regards
 Deans Marine

Can anyone clarify as to when black boot topping was introduced, was it during the First War or later? I ask because I have yet to see a picture of boot topping prior to 1914; this includes real ships and museum models of the period.

What's the expected cost of the semi kit

 The MK2 Semi~kit is a method of supplying the modeller with the requisite parts and information to construct a large model where we have followed the construction of the prototype to completion Models in the range are chosen for their large size, difficulty or unusual design for the modeller who wishes to construct a large or difficult model or something a little out of the ordinary that makes the prototype unlikely to be developed in to a full kit.
  The semi-kit does not contain any instructions or parts for the decks and superstructure as this is left to the modeller who by the nature of the project will be well versed in developing the project to its basic construction.
 The parts available are listed in the parts list, all individually priced many have alternatives, such as stanchions, brass etched ( three types ) cast metal or turned brass plus alternatives for such as turrets, boats, A/A weapons, for different version of the model
so there is no fixed set of fittings, but a large choice depending on versions and price.

IMO this should be considered more of a semi-scratch than a semi-kit.
 
The hull is listed at 195.00.  You can search the site for similar turrets, fittings, boats etc.
Also prices for similar sets of running gear. You should be able to get a close cost approximation for the basics.
If enough modellers buy into this project I am sure Ron may consider offering a running gear set.

The decks and superstructure look fairly straightforward to build for anyone with experience, and access to some plans.  My Polyphemus started off as just a Dean's hull.

Bear in mind the model is a touch over 2 metres, and allow around 18 kg when fitted out and ballasted.
But who could resit no less than seven main armament turrets.  Fourteen 12" guns.  Two of us have used the term "delicious".

No doubt a Mayhem build log will emerge in the fullness of time to further tempt us.

Well done Ron  :-))

Manny thanks for the kind words, crazy project to make as it will never recovers its cost, but who could resist her.

What I would really like to know is if the HMS Agincourt semi-kit prototype will be at the Deans Open days 17/18 Dec?.  If so, I shall be there taking lots of photos with the intent of starting to build one early Spring.

Perhaps if the builder could confirm he will be bringing it I will definitely be there taking lots of photos.

After ruling out trailers and roof mounted boxes my only real option for transport is to build it in two halves, separating between the two centre turrets.  2.13m long, 282mm beam.

Yippee !  Many thanks. 
Looking forward to seeing you, and the awesome HMS Agincourt, on December 17th.
Loads of questions, and will be taking lots of pictures.  Bob K
