Hi Brian
I got those pics a while back thank you. I love the shots taken in the English Channel. The third shot is of an earlier unit. It's a shame, it was just the view I wanted.

Cheers

I use James Lane's brass stanchions and brass wire.

Do you brush paint all the superstructure and fittings? Looks like there are loads of nooks and craneys so would expect spray painting to perhaps not give decent coverage unless you use an air brush as well.

Thanks, I wasn't sure, but it almost looked like the wire had knots in it. Might be shadows or artifacts from the camera. I've seen some people try and make the rails look like chain, but the real thing is square tube on edge (except were there are access gates, in which case there is chain and you have that drooped nicely), The square tube looks weird up close on the real thing.

Looks like you're using Pauls resin pieces to good effect, I didn't know he made so many parts for the Burkes.

Can't wait to see it finished!

Hi Darren
I used brass wire for the rails and some very fine copper wire for the maindeck cables. James lane made the 5 rail stanchions for me. I think getting things like that is very important. Paul makes a special set of fittings for the Burke class to supplement the Sirmar fittings. They are excellent. The mast was great fun to make!!!
Paul also sent me a large amount of photos that helped to get the detail correct.

I wonder how many ship models there are out there that have been painted with good old Halfords finest grey and red primers!!

Hi Bob
All the fittings are either Sirmar or PSShips. The Bushmaster and STWS are scratchbuilt.

No, I've heard stories about boating behind The Old Ford but can find no sign of it now.

Sorry to hear that, it used to be a thriving club and a popular venue. They built the water themselves by excavating it and filling up from the nearby river. I went to many regattas there in the 1980s.
