HMS campbeltown build 1/96
« on: July 30, 2008, 06:45:14 PM »

hi guys. here are some pictures of my latest build, HMS campbeltown 1/96 scale, i haven't taken many pictures of the build so far and i regret it so i will take lots more as the build go on. i had the semi kit from fleet scale for a Xmas parents from my parents, then i bought the futaba 6EX 2.4 GHz RC system for my birthday. the reason i bought this RC system was because most of the crystal frequencies are being used at my local club by the time i get there and because of the following functions i wish my boat to perform - a  turning turret, many lights throughout the ship, rotating radars, possibly smoke coming from  the funnel, and the lifeboat/working boat will lower over the side and lifted back up again.
i hope you like the photos and there will be lots more to follow through time.

Hi Dan. 

That looks good. I'm jealous already. I'm thinking about 2.4 gig as well.

That's your summer all booked then.  :D

All the best

today i spent 8 hours (is that better ken   O0) working on the bridge. i thought it would be extremely difficult with various angles but it didn't turn out too bad, it needs a bit of filler in a few places and a roof but i think it looks good for now, so I'm in a good mood until something else goes wrong with the build ;D

dan,

I've just found your boat. Very impressive. Hope this one doesn't burst into flames in the middle of the pond! :(
Seriously, it looks as though you've been working v.hard. keep up the good work. Looking forward to seeing next stage.

If i ever get round to building a warship one day it will be one of these.  I just love the shape of that bow.

The build looks good.

Hi Dan, looking good so far, but, please let me put you right on one thing if you don't mind.
 The 4.5 gun base on the fore castle is upside down mate. the big plate fits to the bottom of the turret, the round bit goes to the deck.

Darlek1,

That's what I call "Useful Tips". I have the Fleetscale 1:72 hull and hope to start construction some time this year.
With all the posts on the forum of the T22 builds - I hope to have a lot less errors as in the past with my other builds.

Keep up the good work dantheman - your model is coming along well and will keep a close eye on this build - many hints for my build.

Thanks Martin, I will post pictures of my Campbeltown in Dans thread if he agrees?
 Come on Dan, let me know?
 It will work for both scales, trouble is mine will be completed in some pics and not quite in others.

 I just thought, if it helps?

Darlek1,

Why don't you post your pics in "What are you building at the moment" thread. That way it won't hijack dantheman's thread :-))

come on - post some pics - I need all the help I can get %)

OK Martin, I will start resizing and start a thread asap.
 My Campbeltown was built about 4 years ago now. She had a glossy bottom for a completed model client for protection, but, it shouldn't detract from what you guys need to know hopefully.

Sorry Darlek1 - just realised who you are - Paul from Sirmar - you would definitely know which way  a fitting should be installed...

I have a question re a Fleetscale part - will send pm if that's okay...
