  1. Hello, Slowly getting ready for my second ship build, really enjoyed my last HMS Prince of Wales build and all the feed back and help was much appreciated. Ill begin the build shortly and was given this kit to build for someone else with no time limit and just for fun. Included in the box is a MK1 upgrade set which has some PE, anchor chain, wooden deck and brass barrels for all guns plus I’ve pe from my POW build so can use that too. Thought I’d start this log a bit before I begin so if anyone has built this ship and has any advice or “wish I’d known before I built” tips would be great to hear from you before I learn them the hard way! I suspect this build won’t take as long as I learnt a lot from my last build. Will be my first attempt at camouflage and a few pics have her looking quite faded and weathered so will be fun to play around with making her look well used. Here is a pic of her during D-Day and you can see the state I’ll be trying to go for which should be fun.
  2. Right then folks ......Change of plan i have changed my mind about building HMS Illustrious and have now orderd HMS Warspite in 1/350 scale, she arrives by next weekend. Anyway after seeing her wreck via a wet path (whats left of her - just bits of her bottom area and keel under water) i am pondering over building her as a full display stand model but weathered, a part wreck as she was when she was wrecked against the rocks near Prussia Cove, to display her even more dissmantled as she was when she was towed into Penzance bay and taken down section by section(this woulkd meen just displaying a hulk with very little details. It would be a shame me thinks not to show her in her glory. OC
  3. Scratch built HMS Warspite.The hull is calved from a block of Canadian pine,the rest of the model is pine too.Just under 3000 pieces of wood to get it looking like this.Copied from plans,1/300 scale.
  4. Hi All! im currently building the Academy 1/350th scale HMS Warspite. Has as anyone got any idea where I could perhaps get a cloth white ensign, for it? The Decals that have come with it aren’t too brilliant. I’ve no idea where I could source one though so any help would be great thanks! james.
  5. Hi all I made a start on what is going to be a massive project in which HMS Warspite is involved in an air attack by the Germans. I will be using Academy's 1/350 Warspite and several other scales of model aircraft also will be using led's for the explosions and lighting the water spurts from near misses with bombs. I wont be getting the Warspite till my birthday in roughly a fortnight but have made a start on the base and some of the planes I will be using. Here are some picks of where I am at, at the moment. the smallest bombers are 1/350 scale kindly donated to this project the 1/144 stuka's are zevada the 1/72 Stuka in the process of being built is Academy and I have a 1/72 Airfix FW190 to go on the Dio too. as you can see it will be a long term project.
  6. Hi to all out there, Just to let you all know a little of my history, I'm a widower (having lost my wife to cancer 4 years ago), am 66 years young and disabled, served in military uniform for over 36 years and am now retired, hence the start of this hobby, I used to be one of the directors at the Heugh Battery Museum, until I resigned to look after my wife in her last days, so I am now a volunteer there, and the Heugh Battery is where the first person in England to be killed duringf World War One, and we have been restoring it from a run down car park and 'vagrant' area since the year 2000, we are now open to the public, and have lots of artifacts (that you would expect from both World Wars) 'plug for the Museum', see us on www.heughbatterymuseum.com. One of the artifacts we have acquired is the model of the HMS Warspite (Queen Elizabeth Class Battleship), she was built in 1912, launched in 1915, the over the years went through a lot of refits. The model we got from the Imperial War Museum was in a terrible state when we received it, (lots of parts missing and broken) it turns out that she was originally (the model) built by some shipyard apprentices to a very good state, but when some of the refits took place, the model was also updated, only not always by the same apprentices and this shows. We received the model in a massive wooden box (where she had been stored during the Second World War, (for safe keeping), evidently this box had not been opened since about 1940/42, so a decision was taken to restore her to her refit of 1942, so the hunt was now on to find both plans and help to put her right again, we received her in July 2013, we then asked around the volunteers as to who would like to take on this mammoth project, after a lot of 'head scratching etc'., it was decided that three of us would do it, Glenn (myself) who would do the most of the metal work (as I have a full workshop including a Lathe and Milling machine along with other machines) and the repair and replacement of some of the parts (which we have to source), along with painting and all the other 'mundane' work, Ken who took on the job of project leader, and works very closely with me, and Allan, who only wanted to do the ' deck planking' and a really good job he is doing of it, including putting cotton between the planks to give the nice black line between them. I am going to copy all this onto another page when I post some of the photos that we have taken, (as I'm not sure that I'm doing this right. So folks, that's all for now, if anyone wants more information, please don't hesitate to contact me and I'll try my best to answer you, thank you for reading all this, I hope I have't 'bored' you all to tears, Sargofagus Thought I'd add some photos of the progress, we have taken loads of the parts we have been able to strip down, but there is lots of 'bits' that we are going to have to source, the plans we are using is a book produced in Poland and is in Polish (also in English) and this has helped us immensely, we have to work out the scale as the full size, then reduce it to 1/48th scale, (but it is working), if anyone out there has any 'better' plans that you would let us have this would be fantastic, we are restoring it to around the 1942 period. Thanks again for your interest, Sargofagus OOps forgot to add the photos, (you can tell I'm new to this) lol I'm the one on photos 11, and 12, Allan is the other person on the photos, Thanks
  7. This is my progress so far on Academy's HMS Warspite special edition. It comes with extra PE and gun barrels. I also bought extra PE oelikons and pomp pomp guns. he oelikon body proved too delicate for me, so I used the shields and bases and the plastic gun from the kit.
