Ensign and jackstaff fitted. Ensign Hoisted at the gaff.

HMS Malcolm commissioned.





She's a beauty all right. Excellent result as always Simon. And as always I am thoroughly jealous of your work ethic!



Thanks Rory,

To be honest, bit of down time at the moment, otherwise she would not have made the show.

Lots pof great ships at Telford, will try to get some pics tmrw.

Si,

congratulations on your commissioning of HMS Malcolm!!
She's another fine model, as I mentioned more than once before I love your choice of 'out of the beaten path' subjects and the dedication you build those smaller vessels with. Great ship, mate! And I do like those colorful paint schemes, that's adding so much to it - next to your fine detailing!

Definitiv a winner!!

Cheers,
Jan



Thanks Jan,


She is gracing the IPMS London stand, not a great one for competitions, especially when you have to pre-register the model.

I am hoping she will get the club some attention.


Cheers

Great build Si. You have a great affinity for these ships and they always look great.

Have fun in Telford!

cheers
Michael



Thanks Michael,

Being ex Merch I have a great respect for the crews of the escort vessels, many of whom were hostilities only ratings, and their officers RNR or RNVR, which I think is why I like building theses smaller vessels the most.

I am intending to, especially as Starling Models River class Frigate being out, and L'Arsenal have just announced they will be releasing a type III Hunt class DE at the show! Both in 1/350th.


Cheers

Si

Si,

She looks wonderful, great final. The rigging and rails really do add to the looks. Hope you do well at the show.

Mark



Thanks Mark,


Very kind of you to say so. she will be spending the weekend on the IPMS London stand, along with a selection of my other builds.


I don't know about the competition your side of the pond, but over here we have to register exactly what we are entering by some time in September. I understand why, but knowing my luck, either I wouldn't finish the model or I'd drop it!


Thanks for all your support along the way.

Cheers

Here we go, the final push.

Railings, these have no gutter rail so they are fun to fit.







Railings painted to match the upper deck camouflage.



Ensign and jackstaff fitted. Ensign Hoisted at the gaff.



HMS Malcolm commissioned.













And in the box ready to go up to Telford tomorrow.




Will post some pics when I get back.. Or maybe before.

Cheers

Today's progress, which has basically been rigging, and the other odd thing.

Firstly, etched boat securing straps, you might call them tricing pendants I presume, except the are diagonal.





There are some etched, what I would call Ratlines, provided for the foremast.



In place.

.

Pictures without words, except one word - Rigging.











Done.



Now anchors, railings and Jack & ensign staffs.

Will get that done either tomorrow or Thursday.

Cheers

Sweet as morning dew on a peach blossom.

In other words, splendid build. Anxious to see how you mount it on a stand.

Si,

Very nice progress, those life rafts paddles really standout. Looks like the paint on the anchor chains have worn off in spots.

Mark



Thanks Mark,

The paddles are a nice touch, very few kits actually include them. I will touch in the worn spots on the cable , and put a rusty wash over it.

Cheers mate.
