Thanks Dave for your kind words which along with Sandys make me feel very humbled

Next one ...well taking CinC to model exhibition on Saturday to sample the Bacon Sarnies and check out what's on offer then send a written triplicate request to the Shoreham Girl for permission to lay down a keel

Would quite like to tackle " Victorious" but have not noticed a decent sized hull yet and the thought of getting everything right is frightening
so will have to wait and see

Kind regards Ivor

Ivor,

Don't get frightened by a Carrier, they can be somewhat easier than say a Cruiser or even a Destroyer. Fleetscale down here in the West Country are, I hear from our guys, a great source for good hulls.

I would wholeheartedly agree there Dave. I have found their hulls to be of superb quality both in accuracy and detail.

So don't be discouraged from buying an "ironing board" Ivor.

Hi Ivor, I hope you do have a go at the Vic, it would make a great model. I still have the Escort Carrier I started about twenty years ago, 7' 1' oa, sitting in the shed under cob webs, I think she was home to a family of field mice for a while. I suppose I'll get round to finishing it some time.'
Regards Jim

Nice to know there is someone else around like I - my good lady has been goading me into finishing the Royal Yacht [1:96] I started 14 years ago - race you to the finishing line

You are lucky Dave, mine wants the Shed gone as well!. Must admit it is way past it's best, and is a bit rickety, but so am I so she's stuck with both of us.

Jim,

In those fourteen years it has moved from my Office to Spain - six years later back to Plymouth to the Office to the Back Bedroom to the Garage to the Office and finally back to the Garage for the hull and the Office for the Superstructure so it is definitely work in progress in progress in progress which her indoors has dictated has got to become WORK COMPLETED or else.

Thanks Jack for your kind comments ,glad you like her ...it certainly attracts attention when she is cutting through the Water like a razor and I have to keep an eye on modeler's who are chatting and not looking what they are doing so tend to keep her more in the background if I can but then visitors ask me to bring her closer so they can get a better look at her .... can't win some days

You can be justly proud of your completed project Ivor - Karen must be a first class Project Manager .

The first photo of the four prompts me to suggest that with her bows not quite embedded in the seawall you perhaps consider building the "Campbeltown" next

A model of that calibre will always draw the crowds when on the water or on static display so keep up on her technical and operational information because there will always be at least one who knows better "i.e. When I was on her that so-and-so wasn't in that position - so ignore the smartasses and steam on.

Ivor: Quite impressive model, really nice to see on the water. I was wondering, looking at your post 112, photo 2 if your skills were called on for at sea repairs for that fouled starboard shaft, or was that handled in the dockyard?

BZ to you and the "project manager" for a great model.

Regards,

Well dusted her off today and took her to sea for a trip to get rid of the cobwebs and clear the rigging .

All went well and she was going well .....untill the last 10 minutes then she was a bit unresponsive so brought her in only to find that she had lost her starboard Prop and brass lock nut .

Just as well I bought a spare set Eh

Some Pictures for you and one of the crew of the original
