    Excellent model. Well done considering that you only had hull lines and had to use photos for other details.

    Hi Ron,
    Very glad that you have been able to read the article about my model of HMS Euryalus. Should you require any further details , you have only to ask. Good luck with HMS Dido. Please keep me abreast with the construction of this model. Kind regards, Mervyn.

    Good evening,
    I built a R/C model of Dido's sister ship HMS Euryalus details of which which appeared in the excellent " Model Boats " magazine of March 2017. I live in South Africa and we do not have access to hobby shops and suppliers of model ship components. As a result model ship enthusiasts such as myself are obliged to fashion all detailed components. Should you wish to contact me for details of my model of Euryalus, my e-mail address is pollitt@webbis.co.za. Kind regards Mervyn Pollitt

    If the model is going to be a model that will be sailed on water, may i suggest that you consider coating the hull with fibre glass. I have used this method on my fleet of eleven R/C scratch built scale model warships over the past 47 years. The models remain intact and waterproof.

    Suggest you cote with fibre glass resin. The resin should seal the hull.

    Suggest you coat with glass fibre epoxy resin. This resin should seal the hull.
