I like the resin casting. Very crisp and bubble free. The mast is fab too.

As the wife has been away this weekend, I managed a few good hours in the workshop, started to build the Scott dome platform and associated structures. The hand rails are giving me a real headache, buy making progress. Jon

Evening all, It's been a while since my last up date, but the build continues. Mainly been painting the main superstructure and hanger, getting them ready for detailling. Here's a few pictures of her in the sunshine during a dry assembley. Jon

The CPP Propellers on T21, T22 and T42 RN vessels all turned Inboard Chaps. I made a living taking them apart and putting them back together at Devonport for about 14years. As well as wrestling with the Hydraulics on all 21's  {:-{ , early 22's & 42's. On later hulls of these two classes, the system was much simpler.
Nice to see you are still alive and kicking Rob, I will be in touch shortly.
Awesome progress Jon!

As we have come to expect from you Jon....very nice Work!!
Hope you don't mind if I answer Chris's question regarding his T23.
Chris, you have your props correctly fitted if turning Outboard when going ahead. This is in common with several other classes of RN Ships also fitted with fixed pitch propellers. Whitby/Rothesay, Type 41/61 and Leander Class Frigates. County and Type 82 Destroyer, Invincible Class Carriers.


Two pictures of T23's, one with the original 'petal' bladed design (Iron Duke). One with the later skewed design (Sutherland).


Hope that puts your mind at ease.

Hello Chris, Righly or wrongly I have my props turning inward when going forward. During the build I tried to find a picture of the batch 3 props, to confirm. Never found one, so went with inwards. Jon

This weekend I managed a little time in the workshop, generally before it got too hot. Finished the base for the 1022 radar, just need to clean up the soldering on the hand rails and its ready to paint. Building the 1022 radar antena is proving to be a challenge, and not finished yet, a few pictures of the progress so far.

Hello Chris, being photo etched brass with a thickness of less than 1mm thay are quite soft and do tend to bend easily. What I do is thread the brass rod (0,5mm) through each of the holes and then solder each joint, this create a stronger assembly. Jon.

Yes Jon  that's what I did an they still bent as people are not carefull enough I normally use billins stanyions as they are very stronge  but they are now way to dear to buy when you need hundreds of them but thanks for your reply an yes the 1022 big radar was murder to build as mine in 1/64 scale was about 4" across but lookin at your build skill's I don't think you will have any trouble you will get it done  :-))

Been pondering how to make the lift-raft racks, started with plastic strip, but that din't work. Far too flexible and difficult to make multiple matching items. I'm going to try moulding the base items and build the racks that way. Jon
