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.
