This is my second attempt at this model
, I tried this many years ago but had to admit defeat as I did not have the time or patience as a 20 something. Anyway, older wiser and with a lot of lessons learnt I am giving this another go.
She was originally a Buckley Class DE from the US and transferred under the Lease Lend scheme to the RN in 1943. This was my Granddads ship in the war so I have a connection to her and have always wanted
to have this as part of my fleet.
I've uploaded an image of the plans
I have from the Model Dockyard (US Buckley DE) and will modify it to fit the photo I've also attached. The final picture is my start on the keel and forward sections tacked in place.
I'll upload more when there is progress.
Good luck with your build
