What a coincidance !

What a coincidance !

Whilst at the Beale Park event last weekend we heard that some of Richard Beale's massive collection of boats would be offered for bids, in aid of Richards charity.  I seem to have come away with a 1/96 WW1 HMS Marshall Soult with a nice twin turret of 15 inch guns.  It was in a bit of a state, no internals, and age-seized prop shafts.

A nice restoration project I thought.



I just heard that Nick has also just got one the same.  What a coincidance !

Gosh, that brings back memories of the old build article in RM / MMI. I always thought this might make an interesting "micro" size model on account of the increased beam at the WL!
