Dave writes:

The model is 1/48 scale, has several working items such as lights, gun mount, RIB Davits, radar, anchors and sound unit. A part from the Hull which was purchased from SIRMAR FITTING, the model is scratch built.

Clyde still has approx 6 months more detailing before she complete.


Richard Thurston's 1/72 HMS Ocean (R68), Colossus-class light fleet aircraft carrier

Richard writes:

I have built a 1/72 scale model of HMS Ocean modelled on the Suez canal crisis 1956 when she brought back 590 Royal Marine Commandos and all thier supply's - my dad who was a 42 commando back to Plymouth, sadly passed away in 2001, and being a keen model maker I thought it would be great to build the ship he came home on in 1956.

I started the build in Nov 2008 and only 9 months later had built the model. She has 186 lights, red and white, working anchors, two working radars, smoke unit, rotating helicopter with sound, Morse code lights with sound, plus the band of the Royal Marines come up on the front flight deck playing Soldiers of the sea, Life on the ocean wave, and Sunset.  In addition,a fighting attack roll plau show which last's about 8 minutes.

I display my model at Eaton park Norwich and I belong to the local model boat club there we have a web site www.norwichmodelboatclub.com please have a look in videos you will see the model in action.

I also make the smoke units for model boats which your viewers might want to know about the web site is www.steammasterunit.com
