Hi Mark, here's the link to the manufacturer website. http://www.kwasny.com/en/products/ Forgot to mention, the gloss white I used is also from them, from the 'belton' series. The Primer Filler and Protection Laquer are from the 'Auto K' series. Don't know if they can send paints to UK🤔 Maybe they have a British distributor? look forward to pics of the Puffer 👍 Doug 😎
Hi Colin, Can't you email your pictures? To some one and have them upload the pictures for you! I'm sure one of us from the website could do that for you... If you need PM me the picture and I'll do it?
Hi Doug, I like the green! Now I don't want any shine what so ever though! Hi Marky, I'm going to take a look on my side see if I can bring up the link! I was able to bring up the website. But all it was was about house paints😭! Thanks guys👍 I'm a keep on looking......
Hi Doug. I have just noticed that you have already answered my battery question in an earlier post. Do you have, by any chance, a legend for the MTB drawings you posted earlier. I cannot recognise some of the parts. The machine guns in the other picture look superb. I have found them on a website but it states they are brittle. Is this your experience with this kind of 3d printed item? Thanks.😉
Hi Andy I am interested to read about your plans for a dog boat as I am thinking of doing the same (when my Thames steam launch is eventually finished....!). One reason that I am considering this is that my headmaster, when I was at Maidenhead Grammar School in the 1960's, was a former skipper of MGB 658 and I am lucky enough have autographed copies of two of his books. "Motor Gunboat 658" is a fascinating read if you haven't already come across it, as is "Dog Boats at War" with plenty of useful information and photographs - just two of the books by Len Reynolds DSC. (He rose from Navigating Officer to Captain during the war in the Mediterranean theatre and served on MGB 658 from its commissioning in 1943 to the war's end.) Apologies by the way if you already know all this! Two questions if you don't mind - are you going to do a complete scratchbuild from plans or complete a fibreglass hull, and which/whose plans are you using? This may help my own decisions later on. I have seen that there are plenty of the appropriate weapons in 1/24th scale on the Deans website which should make life easier with the fiddly bits! Very best wishes with the build. Smiffy
Although a relatively new member and with no naval background at all I can only agree with the more informed, and thanks for the hard work that goes into maintaining a website like this its really appreciated. Michael T PS how do you open the excel file?
Hi Smiffy, Admiral of the Fleet indeed is correct, but was shortened deliberately to reduce the length of the text. In some areas of the website it's too long to display properly. 1st, 2nd and 3rd sea lord is a viable option. Will see what others come up with too 😎
Hi All, right now there's a chance to update the ranking system on the website. It won't be updated until later in the year, but I'd like to give you all a chance to comment on the attached restructuring. The only thing that is important, is that we have 20 different ranks. I don't mind if we mix US and UK, or ranks from different forces, provided it makes rough logical sense. Please submit your opinions and amendments below. Many thanks, Stephen
I finally managed to contact the Dumas website after a bit of searching ( the link on here is naff) and paid for a plan and instructions via paypal. The next day I received an email from Dumas stating that they had refunded my payment and were sending me the plan and instructions free of charge....well I never !!!! Thanks Dumas
