Hi Msea,

Are they going to be 'Sea Pigs' as opposed to Sea Harriers.........?

Also will they be painted in high altitude pink, to match the sky as the sun sets...........

Cheers,
Bigkev

Well done that man
Not sure about the pink it might clash with the missiles ?
A couple of shots of them under construction -- the last one is the lift that I nearly forgot to add to the deck -- just saved another oooooppps

Hi Msea,
Think I'm close to your wavelength on this project, somebody help me!!

Instead of 'Pink' what about a nice 'Violet' shade. It certainly will help in the colour stakes on this model.

Cheers,
Bigkev

Some rails added to the ship  --- not a glue run in sight.

Nice work from whatever angle...............

He is one in a Million!
Luckily, because we only know of Msea, collectively we can try to contain his wild creativity.......
Hopefully,

I have always liked David Griffiths model "We a' gang doon the watter tae see the splendid cat" with the people on the paddle steamer going to see HMS Tiger in 1914.  So have decided to steal the idea ( I hope he takes it as a compliment ) and add a paddle steamer to this model.
Having used the Hull ferry to cross the Humber in my youth - shall make it the Tattershall Castle.  The ship is 64m length and 17m beam so that should if my maths is correct be a model of 112mm length and 39mm beam.  first card cut out for the shape made - now to decide how to make it ??????

Is this the one that is moored at Hartlepool or am I completely mistaken?

Hi Zak the Tattershall Castle is in London first as an art gallery and then as a restaurant. The one in Hartlepool is the Wingfield Castle.

A start made on the lower hull - the extension parts on the midships area are for the paddle wheel and covering. 
Now should I just plate over the side with thin acrylic or fill in the sections between the ribs with filler and then plate over -- decisions decisions decisions!!!!

This is actually inspiring me to attempt a build of SS Lulworth Hill (see my "wish list post elsewhere on the forum).  I shall contact William Hamilton & Co (if they still exist) and try to find some plans.

Have put some filler in between the ribs of the Tattershall Castle.
So while waiting for that to dry looked at the original info for the Prince of Wales and saw she had aircraft in a gantry, so dug out the box of bits and found that she has 2 in the box - wings folded and extended. Only problem they are made to fit onto the gantry so have made some legs to get them standing on the deck.
