(Blog Update: HMS Diamond D34 Destroyer) Error on Ship Number by Pav403 (Petty Officer)

(Blog Update: HMS Diamond D34 Destroyer) Build Updates by Pav403 (Petty Officer)
Some of the initial keel laying and build of the hull. I've tried to use spare wood I have instead of buying new. A lot of what I have is 1/4" Pine and I've had to double up to get the required thickness, It does involve a lot of sanding when gluing two pieces together to achieve the desired look. Next Phase is to shape the hull before adding the 1/8" Ply sides and Transom.   Posted: 6 hours ago

(Blog Update: HMS Diamond D34 Destroyer) HMS Diamond D34 Destroyer by Pav403 (Petty Officer)
I am building a 1:96 scale model of HMS Diamond D35, She was a 1960's Daring Class Destroyer. This is a Scratch build from plans supplied from the Model Dockyard. This is the 1st Scratch build model I'm attempting and wanted something simple enough to get me going.   Posted: 6 hours ago

(Forum) fireboat update by pmdevlin (Fleet Admiral!)
wow, nice, at least you have looked in the wheelhouse, I was beginning to think it was a waste of time doing all that as nobody looks at it when the boat makes a rare appearance out of its box. I think its a vampireboat, you have seen the coffin! and it never come s out in daylight don't forget the steering wheel, you cant buy that anywhere!  Posted: 18 hours ago
