Thought I would mail you some pictures of my current project, hopefully to
share with your readers.
This is HMS CARDIFF a 1/96 scale mode, using a Sirmar hull (Exeter) and
modern fittings (York). I did this so that I could make a current version
of a type 42 and not the 70's fit represented by the Exeter fittings, up
to this point as you see her today it has taken somewhere in the region of
As some of your readers might know the real CARDIFF was decommissioned
about a month ago to fall in line with the current defence cuts, a shame
really she was a fine warship.
I will be modelling Cardiff as a she was seen on her last voyage so there
will be an up to date type 42 destroyer.
I will mail
you more pics as progress is made on this most enjoyable model.
