Title: 1:48 fittings search
Post by: pops on November 25, 2007, 03:32:14 pm
Would any of you kind people know where I might find "quality" 1:48 scale fittings for a USN Fletcher?

I have just come off a bad experience of the purchase of some fittings and need to be far more selective in order not to make the same mistake twice.

One company that comes with good credentials is Quartermaster. However, I find little about them from Google. I know Loyalhanna carries Quartermaster fittings, but they have very few photos of them and the photos are even poor. Any help would be most appreciated.

Thanks, in advance.

I checked them some time ago and did not see any 1:48 fittings. Right now their site seems to be knackered.

Nothing wrong with the Sirmar site, just checked. There are plenty of 1/48 fittings as well ??? ??? ??? ???

It was not working last night, but you are right, it is up now. Thanks, I'm headed that way.  :)


Update:

Unfortunately not much has changed since the last time I looked. Twin Bofors was about all I could find there. Sirmar, understandably, has little for the American ships. 

My search goes on.

I can send photos of 1:48 scale fittings suitable for USN Fletcher if you are still interested. Been doing this for 18 years now.
