Nope - I have noo connection to author or publisher. I am curious about Atlantic Conveyor and Sheffield since I have these in 1:250 in my stash.

Indeed, well done.

Myself I ordered those parts to be cut by laser. I've included dxf files into model's folder. I don't know if you noticed those?

Hi Herky,

checked your link and noticed that in recent years there are uploaded quite amount of documentaries and archive reports regarding Canberra. Pity those were not available when I designed it. Such videos provide a lot of useful information.

I saw them, but decided to cut them myself. For the railings however I've used a lasercut set. It adds a lot of depth to the model.

This ship requires a lot of railing.
I have only used it once and it was produced by HMV.
It is impressive how fine the cutting can be done with a laser cutter.
The railing in these photos looks consistent and well done.

I always design my models very basic, mostly due to lack of time and patience
But hoping that creative and thoughtful builders, like You, can bring model into completely other level.
Again - looks great.
