Well Sandy just like your good self , forever fiddling and refurbishing , [well cant get down the bloody lake till I get me wheels back so what the hell .

Decided to remove the Sea Venom from the aft Lift and place a heavily modified Buccaneer in its place .....sure its not totally to scale as I cant get the correct scale models anyway [ the ship is 1/96 ] as the Aircraft are 1/72 .....but hey it looks better to me and its my model

hope you think its close enough mate

Very good Ivor.....very very good mate.

Nice to see the nose cone swung back and the Chief Stoker's ears (air brakes) swung out to limit the length of the cab overall. It sits in the lift well quite nicely irrespective of the scale clash.

Hope you're up and about very soon, at least before the winter sets in.

Sandy.

I remember 'slapping in a Preference Draft Chit' to drive it!. Didn't get it of course, but the month before I left the Mob, I got a phone call from FAA PR section at Lee (Same people as the model) asking if I would like to work there, in the art dept. Someone in high places had seen some of my paintings.
I very nearly accepted, but it was too near my leaving date, and I had made all sorts of arrangements for civvi street, and I was wearing my civvi head by then. One of those 'what if' situations.

A great what if Jim ....could have served you well , but like many Great people who contribute a great deal to this Hobby they are blind to their own contribution and feel embarrassed at confronting it .

One recent great light has been dimmed and is in danger of going out ....and is a loss to us all

He knows who he is and like your good self .....his departure will be a great loss

'Ere Ivor ......... Chief Stokers never die ...... they just fade away.

I'm still with you guys, just sorting the Watch and Station Bill for 2014. And I'm only just as far as sorting out a Blue Card for Scurs ......

(NB): Blue Card .... special duties, not falling into any of the recognised duty watches.

NAVAL PRINTS

Click above to see our naval art portal - Eight random half price items are displayed to the right.

Some Current Half Price Offers

The Battle of Trafalgar was fought on a calm, almost windless day, on 21st October 1805.  Nelsons revolutionary battle plan was to cut apart the larger Franco-Spanish fleet of Vice-Admiral Villeneuve by sailing in two single column divisions directly at right angles into the combined fleet and thus rendering almost half of the leading ships useless until the could turn and join the fight, which in such calm conditions could take hours.  The battle raged for five hours in which time not one British ship was lost, however, Nelson would tragically lose his life at the very moment of his triumph, a triumph which rendered the British Navy unchallenged in supremacy for over a century.  Here HMS Mars passes between the French ship Belleisle on her starboard and the French ship Fougeux on her port, firing a murderous hail of gunfire at both ships.  Also shown in the painting on the left hand side is the Spanish ship Monarco and the French ship Pluton.

 Having departed the Namsen Fjord in Norway, on a course home to England across the North Sea, HMS Arab was intercepted by a Heinkel He.115 and ordered to sail due east or be attacked.  His orders ignored, the German pilot began a series of passes over the trawler, raking the small vessel with continuous fire from both of its guns.  The gallant crew of the Arab returned fire with all Lewis and Oerlikon guns blazing, the Heinkel being mortally wounded as it made a low pass across the bow of Arab, finally plunging into the sea some two miles astern of the trawler who continued, without further incident, to her destination at Scapa.

Although all the aircraft were lost and no significant damage was done to the German fleet, all the pilots were decorated for their bravery and Lt-Cdr Esmonde received the first Fleet Air Arm VC to be awarded, albeit posthumously.  The painting depicts the first wave of Swordfish attacking the Scharnhorst with Gneisenau taking avoiding action in the distance.  A German torpedo boat has turned to confront the attacking aircraft.
