Really looking beautiful guys.  I guess you will be the paint crew Nick?
I am really enjoying the excellent progress you both have made with this ship  :-))

Hi Ian


The shipís boats are 1/48 scale items from Quaycraft via Model Dockyard of Cornwall. Still need to locate a 30ft Cutter- might have to be scratch built.


Hi Bob


Yes Iím the dockyard painter! ;)

Stunning work chaps. Will the decks be painted a darker colour or left in the hull colour?


Good to have you back by the way  :-))

Hi Kevin


Thanks for the links, every little picture helps! :-))


Hi Ian


The deck will be is painted a darker grey, just finished it today. The paint certainly changes the model again and we are looking forward to adding the next layer of detail.

True. The destroyer looks much more complete in her scheme now. The deck is a near future job to do on it.

Lovely detail work Nick.  Love the finished rudder.  Precision acrylic funnel too.
Can't wait to see her close up   :-))

Be careful you don't knock her off that stool  %% She's looking very nice as is Invincible above.

Again...this imgbb software is great..................


 %) however it does also suggest :o that the rudder wing is secured to the rudder post by 1 pin only

Could this be the case?

Hi everyone


After a little break in the build Steve has started with the shipís boats davits. These are made from 3mm diameter brass rod and bent to shape using a pipe bender from a Victor Bomber brake line kit!
Only six more to make!

Hi everyone


A bit slow on the updates I know but Dad has been busy in the mean time whilst I'm (ahem) elsewhere occupied in the Eastern Med!
Another test float with the hull and superstructure painted to ensure that the waterline is correct. In the Brown's Shipyard, well, shed, he has been finishing off the davit supports (pictures hopefully coming soon via the amazing interweb!), he is still working out the funnel top and drilling out the broken stanchion which broke a few weeks ago!   
Another progress report hopefully in the next few days... :-))
