Pictures of my ship models build by others!

As there are quite a few ship models I made, distributed round the world now ,I thought it might be nice to show a few pictures of models build by you.

Lets start with a Hunt Typ II class model made by Karl Forder. What I especially like is that he put a barrage balloon up at the back of the ship!

Next up is a S.S. Green Island steamer build as a CAM ship another nice touch I like a lot

These are two very good examples what you can do with my models. If you are also a proud owner of some of my models feel free to send pictures to info@wargamesgazette.com I will put them up here if you like!

You can purchase the ships if you like just go here for more info !

Next up will be a bigger collier and a passenger liner.

MS Louisa as an auxiliary gunboat

Auxiliary gunboats were used by the germans during WWII in a great variety . This is the MS Louisa converted into such a vessel . These vessels were used for security and convoy support.

I haven’t thought about the armament jet, but you could definitely mount a 88 mm gun in the central position and 37mm or double 20mm guns fore and aft and an additional 20mm on top of the wheelhouse . I will put some Warlord weapons on it when i did the mould.

The other ships are by warlord games.

The first cast of the Hunt

Here is the first cast of the Hunt Typ II Destroyer Escort in 1/300 for cruel seas! It came out rather lovely don’t you think?

The main parts

Hope you like it as much as I do. By the way one of the small squares on the cutting mat equals 1 cm . The ship is round about 28 cm long!

 

The Hunt finished for casting

Here are the pictures of the finished Hunt Typ II DE for Cruel Seas. The only thing missing is the anchors and anchor chain. Then a coat of PVA and mouldmaking can start.

It will take until next week to do the moulds and the first casts as i will be at Salute next weekend so no more modeling for a wile. I will post pictures of  Salute next week!

Further progress on the Hunt DE

Here are a few pictures of the work I did lately on the Hunt class destroyer escort. The superstructure is nearly completed now. But there are enough things to do like putting on all the detail wich is printed on the card but will be lost when casting. So all the dogs and vents have to be glued on again etc. furthermore the main armament has to be build the AA armament will be from Warlord.
