WWII Battle class windscreen!
« on: February 07, 2010, 01:33:17 pm »

Has any one a good picture of the Wind Screen/deflector on HMS Barfleur's bridge, or sisterships or other similar  destroyer.

From the pictures I have (Long distance) Barfleurs is different from some of her sisters and other destroyers but need something to work from.

My HMS Barfleur built from a Solebay kit bought in '97 it kept getting put on the back burner for one reason or another and went through 3 house moves. Finally got on the water today.
It floated well very stable. It did not perform as well but thatís my fault for experimenting with the drive I hope to re-do the motors soon and look forward to some good sailing

Hi Tom, I hope mine looks as good as yours - I am convertingmy Solebay kit into the radar picket conversion
You say yours is nice and stable but because of the large fore and main mast (mainlymade of 1mm angle brass)
mine appears a bit top heavy when i did my float test in the bath    - even considered putting on a false bolt-on keel
will have to see when complete
I like the camo scheme
