The decals transfers just fell apart in the water - old I guess.

Here is another fairly cheap ship from the same stable, the USA built many variants on the same basic hull- 31 I think.
This is the U.S.S. Conolly ABL destroyer, the ABL means it had Armoured Box Launchers for the Tomahawk cruise missiles
Once again the decals/transfers fell apart but I managed to retrieve one or two for the ship's name and numbers, the rest were hand painted..

Now I know why it takes Tony a long time to build his ships.
I have just been building this radar  and it is made of 6 brass parts, very fiddly and not easy.
There are quite a few of these on this ship!

5p is the most I get to spend at any one time, this is one that I had hidden away just in case of emergencies.

You lucky person -- if you look at my photos ALL I HAVE IS A SINGLE ONE PENCE COIN.

I though your coin would have a wren on it?
