Here is the completed armed trawler.
I need to make some sea for it to float on.

The same company also built two Flower Class Corvettes, The Azalea and the Begonia, they were among the first batch to be built. The one here is HMS Begonia K66. The scale is 1/300, but I am not sure you would notice the difference to 1/350 really.
I have also been working on one of these, again from Cruel Seas, again a hunk of resin with some white metal additions, so it is mostly painting.
I am going to display this and the armed trawler on one base.

Admiral Zak and his wonderful fleet.


Should that have been 'Admiral Zak and his wonderful feet'?
Cheers,

I just wanted to put them on one base, as they are quite small.

The connections to the East Riding keep going on.

There are Hunt Class minesweepers from WW1 ( Middleton).
Hunt Class destroyers - Class I and II and also modern mine countermeasure vessels.
So what next?
HMS Holderness, HMS Middleton (3 ships of this name), HMT Thornwick Bay???

No, none of these, it will be HMS Beverley, a town class destroyer from WW2.
Talking to Peter Hall (Atlantic Models) led me to buy HMS Monmouth, a destroyer of this class.
This has mostly resin parts and an etched fret from White Ensign.
It should be possible to build something like HMS Beverley from this.
Not much information is online and very few photographs, so guesswork and modellers licence will be the order of the day.
This class were flushed deck, four stackers on lend lease from the USA.
They were converted and refitted here for escort duty.
The literature seems to be confused as to details about the ship.
One book quotes it as a Belmont Class, where as she was in the Clemenson Class and part of the first batch with the Belmont, hence the error I guess.
There appear to be differences, as usual between members of the class, but as Peter Hall said, who will know.
Well enough waffle, onto the model.

I started by cleaning up all the parts and then washing them, they were then all undercoated.
I did clean the etched brass with solvent first.
