Just built the Battleship which is said to be based on RN KGV. Reduced from unknown scale
to 70% of the unknown scale. Enhanced a little on the seaplane, added some simple rigging
and used the sea base from ZIO's R.N. APE.
The model was downloaded from the site, Papirove-modely.cz
The original, by Rigby, should be from America's Greatest Comic Weekly dated
April 6, 1941 before the Pearl Harbour attack.

Very cool! And I love the idea of framing vintage paper models as art...

I have never seen the “King George V” battleship kit before. It looks good. I built the Rigby “Queen Elizabeth” a few years ago. It builds up into a handsome model. One of these days I’ll try to build the battleship “North Carolina” from the Rigby naval ships book.

A note on the Wheaties paper models. Wallis Rigby did NOT design those airplanes.

Hey, Bob! Great to hear from you and to know you are building. Hope we can see some images of those Rigby's.

Ah, memories! In 1943, I believe (my dad had been drafted into the Army), my mother built a passenger ship printed in the comic section with me. Probably was the Queen Elizabeth that John Dell posted. I also remember a bomber and a tractor with a string of bomb carts with 2D bombs. I was 8 years old at the time. Guess paper modeling goes a long way back for me!
