HDMS ABSALON L16
« on: October 05, 2019, 04:34:46 PM »

Hi !
New building from Billing Boats

The Absalon class are support ships of the Royal Danish Navy, commissioned in 2005. The two ships in the class may be described as a hybrid between a frigate and military transport ship with multiple role capabilities, with the capacity to be transformed from a combat ship with the firepower of a traditional frigate to a hospital ship within a day.

Hey Chris,

How well do the frames fit inside the hull?

Hi !
To Martin
Frames are laser-cut parts on wooden boards.The reinforcement frame fit perfectly in the hull and must be glued to the hull.

I fitted radio gear to one and the engineering of the kit is most excellent. However the use of self adhesive stickers for things like anchors (!) and grill work leaves something to be desired. However, as a basis for a bit of super detailing, a very good start.
Also, I hear it sails really well, which is a bonus!

Hi unbuiltnautilus !
I agree with you concerning adhesive stickers for things like anchors. For the price of the kit they could have added anchors !
For example, Iíll build her with a bow thruster.
