Hello from Scotland


Recommended Posts



I am 53 , and currently looking forward to beginning the Trumpeter 1/350 HMS Hood- for which I have acquired a lot of aftermarket additions

I have in the display cases , the Trumpeter 1/350 HMS Repulse , 1/350 Cossack ( from Eskimo kit ) , Showcase Models 1/350 HMS Walker

( from Vendetta Kit ) 

and finally the Infini added Super Detail set for the 1/350 Tamiya Yukikaze - I only build in 1/350 scale as the details are easily visible -

I have a few Shapeways - aftermarket sets added to the Kits for the Vendetta Model and 3 D Printed1/350 Main Gun Turrets for the Repulse and Hood -

these last 2 added huge amounts of extra detail ( and the Repulse Rear Turret had the right 1941 Oerlikon Walkways rather than Gun Tubs from Trumpeter -

I find Acrylic Display Cases are better for Destroyers and Glass ones for Battlecruisers ( although expensive )


regards to the Forum

my HMS Hood in 1/350 - given a lot of after-market additions 

and the aftermarket MICROMASTER-designed Shapeways 15 inch Turrets ( printed in finest plastic they offer )

which I have bought for the Hood ( not cheap but they solved the errors with the Kit Turrets ) 



and what the ones for HMS Repulse looked like -


and the effect when painted and given etch and brass barrels -


I think you might like this ??
