Outstanding!

Makes me want to watch The Cruel Sea again, even though the heroines are a Flower Class and a Castle Class corvette rather than a Black Swan class sloop.

Nice pregress, and I am not a purist so I would use other materials, including wire!

Hello all,

Almost there with Starling, just weapons, railings and rigging to go. I did a lovely job on the forward anchor-windlass, but it went ping from the tweezers and ended up in the great modelling void, so, having to make a new one.
The tripod mast was fabricated from a mixture of bamboo, fuse wire and plastic rod and the vent cowls were carved from plastic sprue.

It looks terrific, Bernie!

I spent some time pouring over these images, imagining I was standing on the bridge and clambering around the deck and upperworks.

Hello all,

Update on Starling, at last. I have been under the weather for a couple of months now and just getting back to the workbench. Anyhoo, I'm just about done with the twin Oerlikons to fit. Trying to get it finished for the Scottish national model show this weekend. I did not have much luck with the Oerlikon mounts and managed to trash or loose all those in the kit. I will therefore be using my own, designed for a previous build.

The model has been mounted on to a piece of fibre-board which has a piece of watercolour paper glued to it. Base finished with acrylic paints and varnish.

Hopefully I will have time to fit some JSC figures around the decks.

Will update soon.
