HMS HOOD by Trumpeter by RNinMunich Fleet Admiral!   Posted: 1 month ago
Hi Steve, Great! Worth all the searching, waiting and effort 👍 A word to the wise! Don't rely completely on the self-sticky back! I made the experience with my Graf Spee that it tends to lift at the edges, and always in the most awkward places to get to 😤 - Thanks 'Murphy'! Recommend gluing round the edges with a medium thick gluper-sue!! Or sealing with a thin type if already fixed on! For my Flower Class, PoW and Bismarck & Co I shall stain the wood decks with Jotica Oak and then seal with Lord Nelson Sanding Sealer, as I also used on my Sea Scout. Followed by Lord Nelson spray satin varnish. BEFORE I fit it to the ship!! I am also going to refurb the decks of my Belfast cruiser and Graf Spee the same way. Keep on blogging, cheers Doug 😎 BTW: loved the antipodean 'deck' care instruction!! 😲😉 Would have loved to have been a 'fly on the wall' when your Missus found it! Can almost imagine the giggles 😁

Mornin' RH, just my British humour, seems to be in short supply these days🤔 I've been very impressed with your build from the outset; from meticulous planning, through innovative mods to superb execution 👍👍👍 As mentioned above I shall probably be using your techniques to mod a surplus 1:96 destroyer hull into a cruiser or maybe even an aircraft carrier. Love the detailing you applied to your ship. Hats off Sir, a super result, you must be very happy. Cheers Doug 😎 BTW: current temp here (Munich) still -2C° and snow lying around😡 Guess it's still much colder where you are.

Bondo the keel! by RNinMunich Fleet Admiral!   Posted: 2 months ago
Mornin' Ed, Not surprised that this is your last Dumas kit🤔 I recently bought the Deans Marine kit of HMS Manxman, a WW2 fast cruiser / minelayer, 1:96 53". It has a superb fibreglass hull that I can't fault and hundreds of cast resin, brass and white metal bits n pieces 😲 On the other hand the drawing supplied is a bit limited, but no sweat as I have several detail photos of the original anyway😉 Rather that way round than like Dumas! Attached are a few pics from the build instructions (there are hundreds on a CD). Good luck with the rest of your build👍 😎

Hi Jim If you go to google and then to you tube. Write "Chris Craft cruiser build" in the search box. You should get building instructions or something to help. Sid

HMS Dreadnought by RNinMunich Fleet Admiral!   Posted: 4 months ago
Hi Mark, Glad you like the link, so do I could become addictive 🤔😉 Just watched the Ark Royal vid not too much new but interesting. Still looking for a vid about HMS Manxman, the fast minelayer/cruiser that helped to supply Malta. Been a favourite of mine since I built the Airfix 1:600 version as a boy. Now my next build project at 1:96 (134cm = 56"!!) See attached pics. She will be on the main assembly bench while various refit/renovation projects are 'fiddled' with elsewhere! Kit arrived on Friday, hundreds of bits!!! 😲 Cheers Doug 😎

M.V. TEAKWOOD by RNinMunich Fleet Admiral!   Posted: 5 months ago
BTW: I've had for years a Fleetscale 1:72 hull for an H class Flotilla Leader destroyer. Since I've already got a scratch built HMS Hotspur I've been considering converting it into a County class cruiser hull, HMS Kent my home county. Your blog has set the grey cells and cogs in motion👍 I drive a Toyota - 'Nothing is impossible' 😉 Keep up the good work (and blog). Cheers Doug 😎
