This little model is sat in my garage waiting for some T L C. I hope to resume work early in the new year more to follow.

I am pleased to say I have managed to make a start again on this little model. The main problem I have had is to secure the centre deck section to the hull. I did not want to use bolts our screws so I have used magnets to secure the deck down see pictures supplied.

Work has now started again after the Christmas break . Just a few pictures showing how I have made the gun tubs. First cut out the circles then the shield parts pin down the base.  Glue the shield in place and secure with cocktail sticks pushed in to a  balsa block. Masking tape was applied to the balsa to stop the plastic sticking to it.

Building is rather slow at the moment to cold to do much. Just a few pictures showing the rear gun tubs and bridge section. For such a small model the amount of detail that needs to be fitted is mind blowing.

Today I made a 260 mile round trip to source fittings for this build. I would like to thank Ron for taking the time to help out in what is a normal day for him. I know some of you will say the guns do not look like Deans Marine neither is the d/charge rack all from John Haynes fine scale models. Most of my models tend to have fittings from various suppliers.

Just one picture taken this morning not much done on this model for over 12 months. I wanted to see how it looked on the water with superstructure fitted. To my surprise it sailed very well must do more on this model before the end of the year.

Looking forward to seeing this one done, no doubt it will be as excellent as all your other builds. Your builds are nothing short of inspirational. I'm happy to see that my workbench has the similar appearance to yours, hopefully my current and future builds will be as good as yours!......Heres to hoping!


Cheers, Dave

Yesterday time allowed to primer the main superstructure all be  it is not finished looks better than just white plastic. I placed the 20 mm guns in each tub just to see how they looked and the 3in gun in the forward tub. Other pictures show the stern detail I hope to do some more on this model and have it at Blackpool  along with other models showing under construction details.

Just checking back in to the thread. Fine work here, you're turning this into a Tour de Force!


Fully understand the stop and go and the stalls in construction. I dropped modelling almost altogether for the motor hobby--go karting, mini bikes and trail bikes. Anything with an engine... and bought a 60's Jeep.

Keeps me outside in the fresh air...which model boating is supposed to also do.  {:-{

This model has been left unattended for some time now so I have decided to build this in conjunction with the Yamato build. So today I have taken out the dreaded terminal block and fitted new cable connectors no screws. Just a few pictures showing the internals.

Hi After rewiring the model I realised I dropped a clanger unable to get out the prop shaft's. I am now in the process of making changes  to allow the shafts to come out.

My big clanger is now sorted out prop shafts can be removed. The final drive/steering layout is complete see pictures. Also a shot of the rear deck and props.

Just a few shots from today showing the brass etch D/C rails on the stern and the forward superstructure. This is held in place with M2 bolts makes life easy when painting the radio on /off switch will be under the funnel when the model is finished. Magnets will be used to hold down the funnel.
