    Thanks Doug for your very generous offer but I couldn't cope with the fine detail work required for such a small scale. I struggle with 1/12th at present. Have to go for more x-ray's next week followed by 2 more mri scans before the surgeons decide which option for my spinal operation they think will help me.
    We just had a 10 day camping holiday with my son, his wife and my grandchildren on the Welsh coast, just in case the operation doesn't work.
    Managed to do some boat fishing, got a couple of dozen mackerel, now in freezer.
    Just doing a small dolls house for my granddaughter.
    Cheers Colin.

    Some nice detailed photos for the scale modeller. I already have a built Matchbox kit but acquired an almost started complete kit a few years back and will perhaps build it as the Sackville using the photos. Thanks for sharing,Ron

    Sorry Hh, HMS Agincourt was a Battle Class destroyer.
    commissioned in 1947 and scrapped in 1974.

    BTW; you are Off-Subject in this (Ron's) thread.
    Please start you own thread for such queries๐Ÿ˜‰

    That's HMCS Sackville, Modified (Long Forecastle) Flower Class Corvette. The last survivor of the class.
    I can send you a Revell 1/72 kit if you like. I have two๐Ÿ™„
