Naval History - PQ17 by RNinMunich Fleet Admiral!   Posted: 1 month ago
Hi John, I meant the the photos that Dave M posted of his Revell Corvette, HMS Bluebell! Thought 35Megs was for aircraft only!? I nearly got lynched here in Munich for once using my 35Meg Sanwa for my destroyer. Sticklers for the rules and regs here 🤔 The COMMS buoy is still on the ideas list, plenty else to finish off before frills that! Yesterday spent the whole day cleaning up and lubricating my lathe cos it hadn't been used for 10 years or more, and of course now I need it 🤔 Want to make some alignment tools for new motors and prop shafts! Cheers Doug 😎

Hi Doug, I am building A Corvette an turning into K213 HMS Poppy. I agree that was a bit of dry British Humour. Regards, Taffy.

Naval History - PQ17 by RNinMunich Fleet Admiral!   Posted: 1 month ago
Sorry couldn't resist this - dry British humour at it's best😉 Extract from the history of PQ17, disastrous arctic convoy to Russia- 'The convoy was now entering the zone of the Barents Sea where enemy surface attack was most likely to happen. Lt. Beckley (P614), the senior Officer of one of the two British Submarines taking passage in the middle of the convoy, flashed to Senior Officer Escorts, "In the event of attack by enemy forces propose to remain on the surface." Commander Jack Broome in the destroyer H.M.S. Keppel (ever the humorist) promptly flashed back, "So do I!" ' A classic! Found while researching Flower Class corvettes - HMS Poppy.😉 Cheers Doug 😎

The radio aerial & handrails. by robbob Fleet Admiral!   Posted: 6 months ago
Hi Bill. Congratulations on your first posting...don't be shy. Being a larger model, at 1/12 the scale, the detailing is probably easier as a result. Now get back to that corvette and get a build blog going 😁 Robbob.

The radio aerial & handrails. by billmcl61 Apprentice   Posted: 6 months ago
Hi Robbob, Dang that boat is big, been following your very impressive build for a while now, I just had no idea of the scale of it until I saw it in it's cradle. And at last I've finally made my first post. Perhaps now I'll get my finger out and make some progress with my wee corvette. Regards Bill

That is a very smart looking scratch-built vessel you have built. Well done. 👍

Suspected Seam by Peter47 Commander   Posted: 7 months ago
Beat me to it, I have used WEP and scrap plastic, to strengthen all joints in a Plastic TID tug, Corvette and my latest build Vosper Gun boat.I used a small jam jar as issued with my toasted tea cake at Costa coffee, just cut up some scrap plastic into jar, pour in enough WEP to cover, seal jar with lid leave over night, then using a cheap brush paint inside and in your case outside joint, after cleaning surfaces first. My TID tug, has stood up to of many a knock, with no leaks so far, apart from when my Brother ran it down with his RC yacht and she turned turtle took on water and down she went , after a quick rescue and trip to park gents to use its hand drier, she was soon back sailing, joints still intact :-)

USSR GANGUTEZ by Dainesh Chief Petty Officer   Posted: 7 months ago
[Score: 10/10] - Comments: This is a small 80m long corvette from the Black Sea. It is not finished some bit and pieces are still missing but I try to finis ASAP. I would like to see her performance on the water. She is my little beauty :)

HMCS Agassiz by Rod Commander   Posted: 7 months ago
These little corvettes were the backbone of the Atlantic defence of the supply convoys from Halifax Canada to Britain from 1942 to 45 Here she is with steam engine engaged for checking before recent sailing complete with Asdic sound This was used to echo signal of enemy submarines to pinpoint their position
