Christian Bruer Happy New Year to all of you!

Well, what better to do to on a rainy and stormy New Years Day than to start a new project!

I choose Starling Models River Class Corvette in scale 1/350. The excellent and well packed kit comes in a stiff card board box with all small parts separate packed. The casting is excellent, with just little flush. There are some minor mismatches in mould and some holes in the smaller parts they were not completely filled in the casting progress, but all in all nothing to be worried about. The kit comes with PE, brass parts for masts and gun barrels, a decal sheet and instructions. There is only one paint scheme required for HMS Nadder. If you want to built one of the other 150 River Class Frigates you have to check your resources.

I choose to build one of the Canadian River Class Frigates, HMCS Runnymede. Most of the Canadian Frigates were equipped with a 4 in twin mount fwd. instead of the single mount. They also had twin motor driven Oerlikons guns in the bridge wings and on a platform aft of the funnel and a different boat davit layout.

This is an easy modification to do, to cut out the davit supports and the gun tubs for the Oerlikon. The 4 in Mk. XVI comes from North Star Models.

All in all comes out nice and fit perfectly together, so I think to manage this, next to my Venomous until the first Model Show at the end of March.

Cheers, Christian

04. January at 00:33:31
Peter Hardy Aha! Progress. Gun and rocket mount looks wonderful Christian.
15. January at 20:56:52
Christian Bruer Glad to see you here Spanjaard :)
Well, once I got deeper and deeper into the RCN River I found out that there are a lot of more differences to a RN River. Different armament, different boat arrangement, slightly different bridge, etc. etc. so it took more research and time than I first thought. Although it is an excellent designed and manufactured kit, there are some minor topics. The framework port and starboard of the bridge wings does not fit correctly, so I decide to make it new from styrene. Furthermore there is a mistake in the instructions, Step 4 does not show the correct lenght of the mast. There is a correction available from Starling Models, you can find it here in my WIP or on Starling Models FB page. Anyhow about the correction I decide to make the mast from one piece without a topmast as shown in the instructions. So far so good, some way to go before I can start painting the model.

By the way, you'll find a tutorial for bending PE parts within this WIP. May it is helpful for the one and other.

Cheers, Christian
15. January at 21:00:19
Peter Hardy Any and all assistance with pe is gratefully embraced!!!!!!!

Dieter Bihlmaier Hi Christian, I like your display. Good start so far! A 1:32 kit of the LM is on my wishlist for the near future. ;)
27. December 2018 at 13:55:45
Christian Bruer Thank you Dieter. That sounds interesting and a scale 1/32 LM is a huge model.

Stefan Fraundorfer What a great idea to build some Apollo 11 equipment for the 50. Anniversary of the moon landing. To build these models is one small step for you, but one giant leap for mankind.

Christian Bruer Thank you very much Stefan. I don't know if is a giant leap for mankind when I'm building this models ;) Well, but if the ones who are interested in have fun with it I'll be happy :)

Treehugger Q: How did you make the ocean for the model as seen in photo 306?
01. January at 16:55:17
Christian Bruer Well, the sea question :) I have a method close to Frank Spahr's easy and simple method of making a display and water. I use a Styrofoam board, the one you use for insulation of buildings. The surface contours can be made using a rotating brass brush and a sharp modelling knife. Frank Spahr use lately a method by heating the Styrofoam board slightly from below. I didn't so far.
Once the surface is in shape I sand the surface, just to prevent irregular pieces of material. Then I add wall paint in a stippling motion in several layers. Not to thick to avoid any cracking. When the surface dried completely I paint it in the colours of my choice. Last is to add several thin layers of high gloss varnish. I use one from the DIY store in a rattle can.

I hope that helps.
Cheers, Christian
