Steam Whistle! by figtree7nts Fleet Admiral!   Posted: 28 days ago
Hi JBRCfloats, I got the figures for the Brooklyn. From Cornwall Models in the UK! After shipping they come to about $10.00 a piece! I have about 5 on the Brooklyn. I paint their hardhats blue. And leave one figure with white hardhat. As an indicator he's the Captain! Regards, Ed

Where can I get the figures that you show in one of your posts? I live in the USA.

Good morning Doug. Forgot to say that in the photo of 368 unloading at Anzio, my father is the taller of the two figures with white cap covers standing on the ramp. This photo was the front cover of a magazine, I think it was called Defence published in 1944? Cheers, Nerys

Who's at the helm? by Westquay Fleet Admiral!   Posted: 2 months ago
Your excuse to get the Mrs. involved, Steve. Get a dolls' house doll and redress him/her. 1/12th is a pain for non period figures. 1/8th ain't much better. I've redressed some 1/16th figures with Milliput to make four crew for my Crash Tender, but it took a while and you still need a base figure to save time. Martin

Are you still talking Crash Tender, Ian? Those are good figures if you don't mind dressing them. There's a wonderful old American chap who builds lovely yachts and he has a teddy bear who moves the tiller and moves his head as he turns and for some reason you don't think about it being a teddy! I think the old boy's so nice the tendency is to forgive him anything. Martin

Nice surprise with the books👍 Shame about the reason for it though. Re crew figures, the Police er 'ladies', driver and the surfer are from the American Diorama range, the two girlfriends are from 'Fast Ladies' - where else 😁 You may remember we discussed the correct scale for Sea Scout some time ago and decided on around 1/16 to 1/20. These are all 1/18 and look about right to me. Can't for the life o me remember where I ordered them or find the receipt 🤔 Google American Diorama and I'm sure you'll find some UK sources. Cheers, Doug 😎 PS risk Googling 'Fast Ladies' if you want! I'm sure you'll get some interesting answers 😁😲

And the fact the driver is a stand-offish sod who disappears inside. Nice boat load of figures! I hadn't noticed them before. Where are they from? Just had a huge white US Mail sack delivered by our tiny Scottish post lady. Full of boaty books from the widow of my recently deceased old buddy. What a lovely present. Martin

The figures you are looking for are also used in garden railroads 1/18-1/20 -1/24 you may find figures at a model train shop or on line for g-scale trains. Rick

Shapeways have the greatest range of ship and boat crew members but they are expensive. You can ask for whatever scale you like, just need to discuss with the designer. I got my U-boat crew done in 1/45 and a few of the characters with slightly modified poses. For my WW2 MTB's I used Preiser German firemen figures and modified them. They are not available any more.

I managed to enlist crew for "the Jade" from the toybox,(Grannie was never the same after seeing Titanic on the telly).

Adriansfigures are no longer trading, Adrian sold to Mountfleet who took all his mouldings and have now produced more, cannot find figures on their website, but they have them at the many shows they attend, might be worth giving them a call.😊

My friend lived in a very similar house in Suffolk, dating back to the 14th C. He couldn't afford the cost of thatch insurance, so had it redone in second hand pegtiles. Looked lovely. We had to burn 25 tons of old mucky thatch that had lived under the corrugated tin for years. All in one long weekend! Martin

Thanks for the offer! but have now stopped the building after fitting windows,yes it was thatched but now tiled,over 500 years old with chimneys fitted later and floors inserted.My wife and I joined a buildings archeology group and measured and drew the house in 1/25 scale and it seemed a good idea to build a model,(we found the priest hole by doing this)pics of a wattle and daub wall in the roof real and model.Sorry for the thread drift now back to boats!
