With the amount of detail being added to this model it is obvious that you have researched the ship quite thoroughly - she's looking fantastic Dave. :-)

Well after a good morning sailing at Setley , I spent the afternoon making one of the Generator housing vents.


Still have one more to make.

I like a good flange. All engineeringy things should have a flange, it frames the part well.

Lots of neat detail and a nice component  :-))

Like in Radiojoe thread, I also thought about access to the power switch and how I was going to connect and disconnect  the lights , radar etc. But also be able to hide these.



This is my method I came up with , it reduced the amount of times I have to lift off the superstructure.

On some of my other models , were I had more space or large lockers I could also added charging points.

Another neat solution to the problem - good work Dave - with the lockers in place the connection / switch is totally hidden and most likely to be unaffected by the odd goffer. :-)

Ray.

She looks almost real in that natural light. The odd stain on the deck (possibly distorted light through window glass) adds to this  :-))

Thanks Ian,


I did not notice the stain, I'll need to clean it off as I have a show at HMS Collingwood tomorrow , so she needs to be prefect to pass inspection by RN personal.

I really feel as if I'm back aboard a hunter when I look at your pictures. I was the MHDO (Mine Hunting Directing Officer) in Kedelston in 83 and 1st OOW in Middleton in 86. Memories fade as the years pass but I think that they used a similar Sonar arrangement. My comment is that the Sonar dome cover would only be stowed on the front of the accommodation when actually hunting as the dome would be inflated with sea water when searching. Speed of the ship was limited when hunting and could only use full speed when transducer was retracted into the hull and the cover fitted in place. They may have carried two covers, I can't really remember. Can somebody put me right on this?
Jerry.
