Slow going still, and yet another small fitting to be tackled, the two R.A.S posts. In order to make a casting this part has to be made in several sections. This is the first section.

Well Dave, I'm simply running out of superlatives with regard to your abilities so, I'll just say you've done another cracking job with those RAS posts - great stuff  :-))

Ah yes, that makes sense. Explains why you haven't followed your usual method of multi-part castings  :-))

Thanks Dave.

Thanks Ian, :-))


This is the same method I used on my 1/48:HMS Clyde flight deck landing lights, it works well.


Howís your current build going ?


I am not up to much at the moment. I hope to next year once one or two other projects have been completed. The Destroyer is almost done, and the small monitor isn't too far from completion. Thanks for asking.

Is it the same model as used on the R.A.N. Armidale class? if so, I have a few photos.
