    My first Scale model
    Made from fiberglass and styrene with many cast resin parts. Taking a total of 18 months to complete. Normally sails at Bonython Park boating lake in Adelaide South Australia. Working Radars, rotating gun, lights and stabilizers.
    HMS Argyll
    I joined Taskforce 72 some years ago so my first scale model was HMS Argyll. Never having built a scale model before I purchased a Fleetscale semi kit. The build took 18 months and incorporated working stabilizers, rotating gun, rotating radars and lighting. Running gear consists of Futaba 6 channel radio, ford buhler motors,twin speed controllers and 4x 7.2v 5000 ma nicad packs running on 14.volts. It was a much enjoy able build with many challenged including making many moulds and castings to create the finer details. Some think else I had no experience in. The wharf was also made just to moor the model, along with a few islands just to add some intrest. I hope you enjoy the pics.

    Not really only takes about 15 minutes to place the wharf and islands out in the lake. All the components are permanently mounted the wharf and islands.

    A Large wooden carry box tied down on a tray top utility.
    It is starting to get to the stage where this isn't going to be big enough. ๐Ÿ˜€
