Dan and I went to the lake today, to launch his Cambletown.

As I had my camera, I've taken the following pictures of his ship and the build so far. I hope you like them. My particular favourite is the moody shot of 'man and boat' in contrast against the water.

Enjoy

No problem Dan. Thank You for filming Imara while I steered her around the lake. It came out well and I shall be putting it on 'You Tube' soon.

thanks gingyer
i was a bit disappointed with the steering, the ship only seemed to turn when i had it going at full speed. I'm might try messing around with the tiller arms a bit to see if i can get the rudder to turn a bit further. otherwise i was very happy with the performance

Dan,

I see in the last photo that you have a resin funnel, if it is a solid resin moulding I would suggest that you hollow it out as much as possible. I have seen models that have used the solid resin funnels and they all had stability problems with that much weight above the waterline.

All Sirmar funnels are hollow with the exception of some of the 1/48th larger models.

I am a complete newbie to model boats and am watching this thread with great interest. Absolutely cracking work Dan.

The reason I am sooooo interested in this one is that I served on the real HMS Campbeltown from the day she was built for 3 years and hold her very dear to my heart. F86 Fighting Fortress.

Where did you get the hull from Dan as I want to build one but not sure whether to build from absolute scratch, making a plug, or buy a hull and then fabricate the rest of the superstructure and detail myself.

If there is any info I can give you or photos, as i will have some close up shots of me stood in front of various bits of the ships equipment then please shout.

Ian

P.S. just a small detail, not sure if the red oxide colour you used for the water line is just a base coat, but on the old girl she had a white water line and then gloss black below it. (I should know, I was in the seamanship branch and had to keep bleeding painting her) <:(

Hi Ian,
Thankyou for your comments.
I am currently waiting to join and serve in the RN, however i need to put on 4KG before they are willing to take me. I have already been accepted as an aircraft technician, but like i say i need to put on the weight first.
I purchased the hull from Fleetscale, an it has been made to a very good standard. i Know others who have build HMS campbeltown, but made their own hulls using a plank on frame techniques which seems to have worked very well.
As for the paint that is on the hull at the moment, these are just the primers waiting for the final coats. I have already got the correct gray for the ship, but could you recommend a red for under the waterline please?

Thanks again, Dan  :-))
