Ron Bell

Airfix 1/144 Great Western

Recommended Posts

Had a bit of fun with this. Used left over bits of wood decking from another kit to give the ship a "real" wood deck. Replaced the catwalk with thinner stock and veneered it as well. Replaced the kits smoke stack and other piping. Replaced all masts, spars and davits with rod stock and brass wire. Added PE railing and rigging from stretched sprue and a new wooden plaque for a base. Fun little project.

Wow, that is beautiful! I have a larger scale model of that ship I need to finish and rig. Brilliantly done!

Love it! Never saw one built before. Very cool - but she's gonna be hard to spot amongst all of those Essex carriers.

Just shows what potential an elderly little Airfiix kit has to be.made into a very nice model. Very nicely built model!
