Mountfleet Empire Ivy/Flying Tempest
« on: June 20, 2009, 07:24:01 PM »

Have searched for any information/comment on this kit but all I can find is a post from Knoby who has one but didn't build it. Is there anyone out there who has built one and could give me their views on how it went together and what they thought of it?
Best Wishes

Hi Douglas i built the ivey that knoby has, i found the hull a bit out of shape plus over plates.
The superstructur was fine as with all the fittings i hated the bridge shape.
I copied the brige from the CERVIA tug i built years ago,the rest was very nice to work with.
Iwill try to post some pictures for you.
