Thanks Ian and Sealord  - encouragement always welcome and valued - particularly having had the chance to meet ian at wicksteed  - at least as positive in person as you are online!


yes i'm  starting to think about the next model - sms g42 https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/SMS_G42   or/and hms swift appeal candidates as having been involved in the 1917 dover action.
 
i lean towards G42 even though to my eye Swift is prettier. I've not found any plans yet, but there is a 1:50 builders model of a sister ship at the maritime museum   https://www.rmg.co.uk/collections/objects/rmgc-object-67387   that should give pretty good information.

if anyone knows a source of plans for 1913/v25 german torpedo boats - particularly the ones by F. Krupp at Germaniawerft, Kiel, i'd be interested to hear.

John,


If S49 is of the same class then the Polish model boats magazine has a plan in 1:300th that you could scale up. [size=78%]Polish magazine for shipmodellers MODELARSTWO OKRETOWE (modelboatmayhem.co.uk)[/size] Reply 63. Whilst from a different ship builder, there might be enough info to work from and get you going.


Pop the editor an email if interested and see if he has a back copy. on purchasing, he might be able to provide a translation and/or PDF for you translate yourself so you can glean any details. I hope this helps?

Well, decision made – next model will be SMS G42.  I just made a first post:


https://www.modelboatmayhem.co.uk/forum/index.php?topic=68486.new#new


i think it was the different people at the mayhem at wicksteed weekend asking ‘what will your next model be?’  that prompted me to actually get on with it – thank you mayhem!


(btw the youtube link in previous post is HMS broke at the mayhem weekend by 'RC MODEL WARSHIPS' channel - nice to see her on the water - esp as i was too busy to film it myself!   )
