    Hi Ship mates, I started this a while ago (possibly a couple of years ago), well thought now is good time to continue!
    This is based on the Glynn Guest plan for USS Hibbard, which is a freelance design inspired by the Arliegh Burke class destroyer, as it’s a semi scale it’s not an actual copy! It will be constructed from balsa sheets, the deck and bulk heads already built, is 6mm balsa!
    I have lost the plan so I will construct my own superstructure design! Watch this space!

    Hello again, here’s a picture of an M class destroyer which I built some years ago, she is of again balsa construction from Model Boat Magazine plans, I built over one winter about 9 years ago, she is sealed with dope and tissue which gives a smooth finish, the guns were constructed from plastic card, with brass rods for the barrels!
    She was retired a couple of years ago, but recently she was brought out retirement and gifted to family friend was showing an interest in battle ships!

    πŸ“ First sail of the year!

    Back in May I was able to get my boats out on a the local boating lake, it went ok and it was magical to have them on the water again, although I did have battery issues, and my small type 24 frigate had a leak, well I live and learn, back to shed to discharge and recharge my NMHI batteries, and address the leak! More to follow soon!

    Here is pitcure of both my boats sailing on a boating lake not far from my home, the larger of the two was commandeered by my 8 year old son for a trainning mission he had in mind, which gave me an excuse to build another one, which is the smaller boat the picture, as the young captain needed escorting while getting use to his new command!
    They are both made from balsa wood, which the material for the hull, it is sealed with a acrylic varnish,painted over the top with enammel paint with clear varnish on top of the paint! The superstructure on the larger destoyer is made from thin plywood, and on the smaller frigate its made of plasticard!
    I got the lynx helicoptors on Ebay from "The Dorest Print Man" I think it was, which are 3D printed by him!

    Hi Colin, thanks for your message, yes the boat below is another build from model boat plans of a fletcher class destroyer, again it's semi scale so looks good on the water but not loads of detail, she has been retired as the old girl leaks!

    Hi folks here is my HMS Tiger, which is fictional warship, I made up a class of ship, the type 44 destroyer.

    It is based on a Glynn Guest design from Model Boats Magazine, which was the USS Hibbard plan, which should of been a stand off scale Arleigh Burke destroyer!
