Well postie has been busy over the last couple of weeks.

Some reference material first:



And some 3D resin conversion parts from Model Monkey to convert the Trumpeter USS Indianapolis into the Portland including some floater net basket inserts, plus a small subchaser and not pictured a group 3 Hunt class both from L’Arsenal.

Nice Subs Luciano.

was tempted by the Tabard, might Sercombe yet.

Very nice haul indeed Mark.


Cheers

Si



Thanks Si, the T class is being built as HMS Terrapin as part of our club animal theme, it comes with the option for two different gun shields so I think any group 3 sub can be built. I’ve just ordered a book on the T class.

Welcome two new subs to the stash and both went right onto the bench as so as they arrived.

I wasn't going to do this. Add to the stash! But in typical modeller fashion, can't pass up what seems a bargain to me.
I bought this for 90 pounds + shipping off Amazon UK


As a Limited Edition plus Platinum Edition (two for one!) it has a wooden deck, brass for every gun and the masts, plus a few sheets of etch. I might pencil it in for after the big E. if I ever get going on that.

cheers
Michael

Well, with the inevitable yearly ritual that is the birthday celebration, Her Indoors and the Younglings have outdone themselves and presented me with the Hobby Boss rendition of HMS Lord Nelson in 1/350!

Of course I was left gushing! It's great to see these pre-dreadnoughts getting some love and I'm super keen to see more going right back to the Royal Sovereign class!

A quick comparison shows the size difference between Lord Nelson and the Prinz Eugen!

Amazing how much they grew in size in just a few short years!

Thanks Russ,

Those two may be a little way down the list, but two empty building docks, so something will be kicking off shortly.

I should stop buying, but I think I will be thinning out the aircraft and armour under the stand at some shows in the new year,

cheers

Nice acquisitions Si!

Looking forward to seeing the build logs on those two

Unfortunately I'm with Michael's team and have sworn off buying any more kits until I substantially reduce the stash-so instead I'll live vicariously

Very envious even though I have said I have to stop buying models. I would love to get to Telford some year, they don't have anything like it in NZ.

I like the little minesweeper, I haven't seen one of those before.

cheers

My additions to the old stash from ScaleModelworld at Telford. Great traders, in, as they say, no particular order:- White Ensign / Tom's Modelworks / Atlantic Models, L'Arsenal, Sovereign Hobbies, starling Models, Pontos, Master and all the traders selling Ships.











Could have spent a lot more, lots of good stuff.

Might be some new build logs starting soon!

Cheers

Si

Nice haul Rory, watch the instructions on the Indy, usual Dragon miss numbering and busy drawings, great kit though.

Cheers

Si



My OCD self is in full swing in regards to that. Already looked at some of the build ups on here as well as the excellent build review by Stefan Halter!

Several items have washed up into my stash lately. First was a pretty good deal on Ebay. This was Trumpeters HMS Hood which included Eduard PE and the Trumpeter Hood detail set. I have ordered the Flyhawk Turret set which is on its way from Asia.



Secondly was the below. Tamiya's IJN Musashi and Dragons CVL Independance. I could not believe the deal I got for this. Saw them for sale on Facebook and paid.....$40 total for both kits.



Cant wait to get cracking on these though I am forcing myself to finish off at least %50 of my current projects before I start!

Having followed the Danton build the idea of OOB with no extras or resin should get me back in to boat building. So ordered and delivered in just 5 days from Hannants, this arrived.


I think I will start straight away.

Picked up some goodies at Southern Expo.





I am intrigued by the Danton, looks very good kit, and a more than adequate supply etch. She may be getting a very quick trip to the bench.

cheers

Thanks Dave, will do my best.

Nice paint set, see what you mean about the red, Like the coverage and the ease of use through the old windy stick of life colour paints

Cheers
