Hms Rodney/ Nelson by epmbcmember Sub-Lieutenant   Posted: 4 months ago
There is an HMS Nelson for sale by a member of the Ellesmere Port Model Boat Club, pictures on their Facebook site. It sails very well.

I thought I had already asked the question!! Where can I get a wooden deck for a Trumpeter 1/200 scale HMS Nelson. I know someone does one but do not know who! Just taken delivery of one of these kits and am wondering if brushless motors would be suitable as well.

Sorry Norm, Got a bit carried away 🤔That's HMS Hood, but I strongly suspect that the capstan / anchor chain arrangement would have been very very similar. After all Hood was only 10 years or so later and much from the Dreadnought was used again and/or improved. Suspect that, as you said, foredeck arrangements were virtually identical on the Nelson class. Cheers, Doug 😎

I think HMS Rodney was long before USS Rooney!!! Lord Rodney would not be amused. 😁 Just taking the Mickey. 😁

The Lone Ranger Rides Again or Hull Finishing ;-)) by RNinMunich Fleet Admiral!   Posted: 10 months ago
Hi Boatshed, Know what you mean about brushing and brushes! You CAN achieve the same effect with brushes, but it takes much longer, with much more flattening in between coats. So much more 'secret ingredient is needed! Brushes from DIY shops, and most model shops, you can forget 🤔 too synthetic, too coarse and too prone to shedding hairs. 😡 For tiny detailing work, esp on Plastic Magic projects, I went to an art supplies store! Prompted by the GF who is into oil and water colour painting! There you will find a great selection of very fine real hair brushes in sizes from 'Help I can't see it'! to about 1" flat, used for applying 'washes' 😉 Not cheap, but quality never is! For example; I'm using a 1/4" flat camel hair brush for renovating the wood decks of my Graf Spee and HMS Belfast with sealer and satin varnish from the Lord nelson range. Will also apply some Jotica Oak stain to dampen the bright colour a bit. For the pinstripe / Boot Topping on the Sea Scout I'm 'Going for Gold', to be applied with the finest airbrush nozzle I have and using Tamiya masking tape to get a good clean edge. hardest part will be getting the tape on right 😲 Hope I don't mess up what I have already achieved! Cheers Doug 😎

HMS Nelson by Gdaynorm Captain   Posted: 1 year ago
[Score: 8/10] 47" HMS Nelson Capable of 2mph and a runtime of 60mins Twin Propellors (3 Blade 25mm) Direct Drive Powered by NiCad (7.2v) Batteries - Comments: Scratch built using Admiralty drawings from Greenwich and miscellaneous photos. to 1/192 scale Hull carved from basswood as are boats. Guns turned in brass in basswood turrets. Rigging steel guitar strings. Sails well. In rough seas tends to ship it green over bow.

Admiralty drawings by Gdaynorm Captain   Posted: 2 years ago
I have a number of drawings sets, came from Greenwich, which I am unlikely ever to use again. They are HMS Valhalla (V & W destroyer), HMS Ceres, HMS Erebus, HMS Nelson and SS Great Britain and SS San Demetrio (tanker). The drawings are in Canada so postage could be a problem. Anyone interested?

HMS Nelson by Gdaynorm Captain   Posted: 3 years ago
HMS Nelson, scratchbuilt to 1/8" scale. Powered by two motors driving twin contrarotating shafts with three blade props. She sails on Lake Lisgar, Tillsonburg, Ontario. I decided on Nelson as she took part in Operation Pedestal, from which I made a 1/216" waterline model of SS Ohio, the ship that saved Malta. She took a little over 600 hours from solid chunk of basswood to launch. Probably info collection took as long!
