Hi Chris


Absolutely stunning build, perhaps the best build of the old matchbox kit I've seen for a long time.
Beautiful work. :-))

That is coming along nicely. It is a great kit for conversion/super detail potential.

Thank you for your kind remarks.  Work on her has slowed down due to work on the house. But hope to have some more updates soon.

Super finish, I am after a break of some thirty years building the Revell kit but as the LE' Mave just in case I get the detail wrong  I can alway state "well in the Irish Navy 1953 refit she was remodled"

For thoughs of you that have been following this thread I must apologise for the delay in the updates, I have been ill and not done any work on her.
I have now started to get on with her and will put some more pictures on here.  One of the things I will be doing is changing my radio set up. I was on
Acoms 2.7 which for what I was going to do was OK, but I have found out that the fishing boats go on that and it used to cause a bermuda triangle problem with the RC aircraft boys so like them I am now switching over to 2.4 , found a nice set up on Hobbyking.  That is now on order and I wait for that. Mean while I can finnish the rear part of the ship. Hope to keep this going for you, as I have found alot of threads start but don't finnish.

Right update with pics. I have decided to put some camo on her, as I am not doing a particular ship I have done my own interpretation, As I am sure there was a lot of colours and patterns. You will notice I have uprated the Pom Pom and the Lewis guns on the rear deck they are a mixture of Great little ships, the PE that came with the ship and a bit of scratch work. Still more to come and will sort the RC out when it comes. Mean while I hope you enjoy the Pics and I look forward to your comments.

Lovely work Chris :-))
I wish all those years ago I had made such a good version from a Christmas present but alas I was too in-experienced in the art of model making at the time and spoilt it.

Well here we go again, I do apologise  for the long delay.( illness and other things ). I have been doing little bits now and again and she is starting to look better, I still have a lot more things to do on the detailing and of course she needs a crew.
As with a lot of things that I have done to her its better to see the pics than a lot of chat, if you have any comments I will be pleased to receive them. I have split the thread in two, first on dry land ( table ) and the second in the testing tank ( pool ).
