Hms Bristol Type 82 Destroyer 1:96th scale
« on: May 18, 2014, 06:25:45 AM »


Hi this is my 1:96th Hms Bristol, I purchased her a few years ago from a guy in huddersfield and bought her back to Portsmouth. I am just about to start a refurb on her and then build Hms Westminster at 1:96th to go with her.

Nice to see her as she was rather than as she is now

Nice model of a fine looking ship! She is on my list of 'to-do's' in 1/72nd.
Are your plans Jecobin, if so, are they good?
Please post more pics as you refurbish.....internals would also be good. Is the hull bought or scratchbuilt?

HI Type 82 I know the builder very well a long standing member of Kirklees Model Boat Club. I will be speaking to him this evening and I am sure he will be interested in your plans.

All the best

Nest project, have some cracking shots taken recently way down in the bowels, hope to built her with the 30mm and 2x 20mm gun decks, did toy with the idea of having her in service a bit longer so could fit phalanx as she was ready to have it if needed.

Alsop hoping to tie the build in with the book on her that I am doing, starting in Sept.

I had literally hundreds of pics taken on her as she is now.
Shall I have a dig around and see if I can find them.
I used them for close up structure.
And had an interesting day on board.

I had a quick look but couldnt find them so now I know you want them a deeper look required.

Hi Littoralcombat


I can make a 1/72nd scale HMS Bristol hull the price would be 140.00 pounds and shipping to Australia would be 30.00 by surface mail.


I just finished the Type 24;

as you can see the longer hulls are supplied in 2 halves with a flange for easy re-assembly.

noticed model has several bilge keels whereas real ship has 1 forward of the three stabilisers, guess its cause its on the Jecobin plan that people include it, several faults on that plan have come to light the more time I spend on board her  :-))
