1:250 Scale Paper Model: Flower Class Corvette "Battleford"

Recommended Posts

Thanks all, yes I contacted HMV with the images. They are going to double check with their test builder if he had the same issues. I did see one other build online, but this was of the same kit when it was on a paper model download site. They also had an issue with hull length, but simply cut the stern short (which on my version would put the holes for the depth charges significantly out of place relative to the magazines).

Finally got time to make some progress - mainly cutting out furniture for the bridge and various decks etc, but I did manage to fit the main bits of superstructure tonight:

Built up the interior parts for the bridge, including the laser-cut wheel, and what appears to be a Chesterfield sofa...

All will be pretty much hidden when the walls are fitted. As with the "Mellum", I used some thin acetate for the glazing. There's anther wheelhouse to fit above the first. Also built the basic structure of the funnel.

Bit more progress on the forward gun platform and the two launches:

Still a long way to go...

Anchor and minesweeping winches now built. This model requires a few parts to be formed from wire, which is a shame, but not much choice:

And a few ventilators finished:

I really like these models, and its very impressive what you do with them. I did buy a couple at Telford 2 years ago and keep telling myself thatĀ one day will give it a go.Ā Until such time I will enjoy watching your builds, thank you.
