    This is sounding like a GREAT idea! the plan of action looks good Doug, we just need to get members on board for the jobs you have suggested, Yeh! I'm OK
    for all armament, and anything else we would need multiples off, I believe that most members will absorb
    their own postal charges, if not, I'm sure we could have a members pot, and as for the guiness book, I
    don't see why this couldn't be a record๐Ÿ‘๐Ÿ‘๐Ÿ‘๐Ÿ‘


    Cheers, Pete

    Yes unfortunately you are right, pity it wasn't built on the Clyde, Glasgow University Archive Section has most of them now.

    This is a great project

    Hi Doug,
    Colossus class carriers and their builders details attached. if we can find out who is archiving the shipbuilders drawings, we could get a copy of the lines drawing that way. Hope this helps, and if I can do anything just let me know.

    Thanks Pete ๐Ÿ‘
    I'll see about drawing up a plan of action, 'Action Item List', then we can see how we can divi up the challenges๐Ÿ˜Š
    I would take Design Authority responsibility and hull / flight deck construction for starters.
    Whose up for the Air Wing? Sea Fires, Avengers, maybe a few Stringbags?
    I warn you, I would want lots of working features e.g. aircraft lifts๐Ÿ˜‰
    I believe Bill already has those covered๐Ÿ˜€
    JB for the smoker?
    Joburgsailor (Tertius) for moving aircraft on deck?
    Graham93 for the electronics to coordinate all operations on the flight deck and lighting?
    Pete, I could see you working on the AA guns?
    All inputs and contributions towards achieving a long time ambition of mine would be gratefully received and compensated by items from my inventory of modules and components.
    Not to mention my stash of around 60 kits! Mostly naval vessels: RN, USN, DKM.
    Plus large hovercraft and an airship!!
    Postal charges also reimbursed๐Ÿ˜Š
    An international Team effort would be really something
    A Model Boats First!? Guinness Book of Records!?๐Ÿ˜‰
    Cheers, Doug ๐Ÿ˜Ž

    OOOOkay!
    Do we want to get a team together?
    An International Project Effort would be real cool๐Ÿ˜Š
    Be just like 'old times' for me๐Ÿ˜‰
    Should I start another thread on this subject?
    Don't want to call it Build Blog until we can see if it's viable or not!
    First job would be to try and find a plan for the Colossus with hull lines.
    Otherwise I'll have to try to adjust the Arl Royal lines I have to suit.
    Will also take time to measure the whole damn kitโ˜น๏ธ
    But if that's the way the cookie crumbles ... wouldn't be the first time!

    Man! Wish I'd been allowed to take a camera on board Minas Gerais๐Ÿค”
    Cheers, Doug ๐Ÿ˜Ž
    PS Sorry about your thread Rooky๐Ÿ˜”

    Assistance from the members Doug???? Im sure all you would need to do is ask๐Ÿ˜Š I for one could make any detail work multiples you would need,(do a lot of resin moulding for our club) and I know other members have special talents.
    'Ya know - It COULD be done๐Ÿ™„'
    I am talking about the 1/96 Colossus, Wow! what a build ๐Ÿณโ€๐ŸŒˆ๐Ÿณโ€๐ŸŒˆ๐Ÿณโ€๐ŸŒˆ๐Ÿณโ€๐ŸŒˆ๐Ÿณโ€๐ŸŒˆ

    Bill,
    Eeeek Eeeek Eeeek Eeeeeeeek !!๐Ÿฑ๐Ÿ๐Ÿ™ˆ
    Which carrier did you mean Bill, Ark Royal or Colossus/Vengeance/Minas Gerais?
    BTW: I also have 1:350 kits of USS Enterprise, Graf Zeppelin/Peter Strasser and Ark Royal.
    Pete,
    Since they've already started opening the gates to Hell here I would need the simultaneous assistance of half our members to even get started by the end of lockdown๐Ÿค”

    What are you guys suggesting?
    The 1:400 Colossus kits or a 1:96 scratch? That's a BIG ITCH!!
    As for Ark Royal I only have the (pretty poor) old Nexus (now Salik?) plan #1212 at roughly 1:192 (125cm), one huge sheet. Would look a bit piddly against my Hotspur and Belfastโ˜น๏ธ
    And my Graf Spee (145cm) would laugh at her๐Ÿ˜‚๐Ÿคฃ
    I have no Colossus plan. Are you expecting that I start like I did with Hotspur back then?
    Measuring up the 1:400 kit parts with a micrometer and scaling up?๐Ÿ˜ฎ
    Hmmmm! Thinks๐Ÿ’ก Scale factor 4.166666r ...
    Excel spread sheet to calculate dimensions/factors for a Corel drawing ....
    Stitch printing on A3 ....
    D-shell connectors between fore and aft sections ....
    Four 8mm nylocked bolts to hold both halves together ....
    Ya know - It COULD be done๐Ÿ™„
    Snag: I only have the hull lines for Ark Royal though!๐Ÿค”

    Oh Jeez!
    Yesterday I already had so many ideas and projects on-the-go (not to mention kit stash) that I was standing on the edge of the Slough of Despond and Indecision.โ˜น๏ธ Today, thanks to you two, I have taken a giant leap forwards!๐Ÿ˜ฎ
    Vote on it Guys๐Ÿ‘ Your Admiral is yours to command! (If he's in the mood๐Ÿ˜)
    Cheers, Doug ๐Ÿ˜Ž
