newbie from Scotland


Recommended Posts

Hi Guys; first up; confession...complete landlubber, mostly! I think I've been on a few ferries; so please be gentle with me😱

The main reason I've come aboard is out of frustration mostly; though I've been 'lurking' for a while....mostly to see to the beautiful work that's 

created here. Really impressive and well done.. honest I mean it..

Anyway; I received a wee prizzy a while back...the Tamiya 1/350 King George V...a lovely model of a beautiful ship. I started her earlier this year and 

have been pleasantly surprised at enjoying the process as much as I do...

Since I came back to modelling a few years ago; she is the first ship I've built and first in this scale! The frustration comes from the apparent lack of info concerning the rigging and all the ariel wiring etc that seems to appear and disappear in the photos that I have of her. I bought the Kagero Top Drawer Plans by Witold Koszela. Certainly; great to see all the detail and differences through the war years. I was disappointed that the rigging plans are fairly basic and merely added to my frustration; as you can imagine!

Basically; are there any comprehensive drawings; etc that I can get my hands on so as to try and do justice to this area of the ship?????????????

When I figure how......which; given my head and tech these days can be more of a matter of if rather than when...I'll post some piccies of my steady progress!! Thanks for letting me join and for reading........

Welcome to MSW.  There is at least one build of her here at MSW.  As far as rigging... really not much on battlewagon compared to wooden sailing ships.   Other a quick search for build logs here, maybe contact the NMM over there.   Or look at their website, they have literally thousands of plans.   Other than those two things (build logs and the NMM) I really don't know of a good source.   I hope you get an answer.
