Glad you liked it Scott,
Trying to locate crew figures but itís a bit wired there is nothing similar to what they wore
All the figures are ww2 and modern but Siri g the Korean War the equipment etc was a bit
Different

She looks wonderful. I love and have always wanted to build a large carrier. Alas, I was lured astray by the Gun club...he will be stunning with a deckload of aircraft. 1/72 scale...plenty of room for motors in them.

work is progressing....
a few issues though, the GRP superstructure was all wrong and the combing for it to sit on was worse. so outwith the old and to make my own.....



the old combing was cut away and the hole filled in.



the new opening didn't need to be too big as there was very little going
up into the superstructure.


you can see the difference in height in this picture



I have made the superstructure so that it will be clad in 0.75mm styrene sheet to give it the final finish











I also printed some fittings using my own 3D printer i wanted to see how
they looked in place

Fantastic work once again Colin. I didnít realise how long the tripod mast was used on RN ships- I thought that by this particular ship it would have switched to a lattice mast but it adds a classical feature on this late war carrier.


On another note, I know you and I were after a mobile crane. Well I found a late 1960s Jumbo but in 1/700 scale! I bought the item from Starling Models thinking it would be something to upscale and wow itís so small! It measures approx 15mm in the two pieces it comes in. At least Iíve got an idea what it looks like but the minute kit doesnít help being so small to measure from!

Yes the tripod mast was still in production until the late 40s I reckon.
Itís the height too from the top deck of the superstructure to the top
Of the mast itís bigger than the flight deck to the top of the superstructure
I have a small 1/700 kit for Glory it has the crane in it too
I may need to use that as a guide
I also got a couple of 1/72 clarkat tractors and they are small

Progress has continued on the superstructure, unfortunately work still gets in the way, I am now having to work in the Shetland isles which means I am away for 3weeks at a time   >>:-( >>:-( >>:-(


the latest updates on the superstructure
some of the viewing platforms and bulwarks have been added as well as the forward pompom position

Lovely work on the superstructure and mast, tidy piece.

the superstructure is still moving on....
funnel has been made and detailing is on going



















the deck is being slowly fixed too, so eventually it will be level and no longer twisting

time for an update....
After a lot of work the deck is now fixed and levelled.
the original hatch openings were not sitting correctly and the deck its self was no where near level. I ended up cutting out the new deck openings and filling and smoothing the deck.













today i managed to get some primer applied and the ship seemed to start to come together...














a long way to go yet though

That's looking very good, she has a well-bodied amidships hull form accentuated by the bilge keels   :-)) ...are the props a pair, or a set?....... Derek

Thanks Derek
The props are a pair of 3 blades props as per the original ship.
This being an original Colossus class, they only had a pair of 3 bladed props
Unlike the later Majestic class which has a 3 and a 4 bladed prop fitted.

Very tidy work gingyer  I think I'll follow along  I'd like to build a large warship one day not as big as this. A 3d printer must be a boon but that's more expense and tech im not on entering into.

So mismatched props on a two shaft setup? What was the reasoning behind that?

Thanks Dave,
There is a lot of untidy bits hidden.
The 3D printer has been great but I am not able to make the files I get that done by someone.
I did think about it but I think the set up I have is ideal for what I want. I can get better quality
Fittings cheaper than elsewhere also I can print as many as I want.

Colin


They increased the power in the engines but the length of the starboard shaft had some significant vibration issues
So they fitted a 4 bladed prop which then allowed for lower revs for the same output.


When I get home I will share a picture of one in dry dock itís definitely weird.

I think what Colin was questioning is what I was alluding to, in the earlier images, both shafts appear :o  to have 3 blade right hand rotation propellers

From memory, we saw a model of what appeared to be a Carrier of the same Class at the recent Blackpool Model Show as photographed by Nick B

I'll find the image & post it back here...is has the same/similar hull belly
