    Hi All,

    First tentative Build Blog going up to site - hope you find it enjoyable, after the first bit of boring 'here's the bits in the box!'

    Seeing how other modellers build is always a good idea

    Hi Gary,

    Apparently it's 39.37" long, or in my language "B*&&$% Heck!".

    Also eventually going to need to redo the launch lift I made for the Flower Class (but not for a year or so).

    I'm also going to use same daughter (she's a star, well the whole family is to be truthful), 'cos she's got a posh Iphone that apparently can 3D scan the crew figures and I'm going to try and add to crew members by 3D printing them - well that's a plan I hope isn't going to fall foul of any copyright laws - it's not for sale or gain, so I'm hoping that's going to be allowed. More importantly, I hope I can actually do it!

    Hey, that is a fair size at two draw widths plus half a cooker, what is that in inches as I don't do metric? Regards, Gary.

    Andy,

    Yes please! Especially if there’s going to be lots of detail and articulations πŸ‘

    Hi All,

    The chief crip is back!

    Seriously, my youngest daughter bought me the attached S38 (1/35th) as a birthday present (and I thought everybody hated me!) Trouble was wherever I looked there were no Italeri 5607 Crew kits available anywhere. Even my favourite store - Cornwall Model Boats, where she bought the ship, is OOS and like everywhere it seems to be a case of 'we'll let you know when it's available again'. Found one in --- Holland! It's from Most-Models.Com and including shipping was under Β£30.00, so big thumbs up for them.
    Look, as some will know, I'm a bit limited in my dexterity (I love understatements) so I wondered if you wanted yet another Schnellboot build detailed in a log?
    It won't be a fast build and I will be detailing the heck out of it and RC converting it. Crew will be first, cos I want to articulate the front gunner to match the servo control elevation and rotation of the Gun.
    Let me know, I'll post a build log if you won't be bored or fed up waiting for the next installment.

    As an aside - this thing is HUGE!!!
