HMS HERMIONE
« on: February 22, 2009, 12:27:15 AM »

Hi guys, you can blame Martin for this, he said I could post pictures :-)

 Here is my HMS Hermione having just done a "zigzag" at full speed.

 I hope you like the picture.

Hi Martin, this one started out as a Deans marine semi kit, ie, hull and some fittings. She is powered by four 380 motors on 6 Volts which gives her more or less scale speed flat out. I used several books, photos and five different plans to try and get her as correct as possible, I also scratch built alot of parts for this one and moulded them for future use just in case. I also used, after alot of sifting through everything alot of Sirmar fittings on her too. The running gear is by GT Sitek with a scratch built rudder. She sails very well and weighs a ton ballasted up.

A cracking looking boat, young sir...I offer you my congratulations. I like the first pic, looks very realistic in that turn.

...She sails very well and weighs a ton ballasted up...

She's 1/96th - so about 17 or 18lbs?

Oh dear...My Dreadnought's going to be 110lbs...
