looks decent so far with regards to be a "Hell"er

Yeah, it looks pretty good. But the tracks look "Hell-ish" enough... Is there a single Heller kit that has acceptable tracks?

nope, the one I know off has wheels ;)

Yeah, Heller is mediocre quality at best. Shame, they have subject matter you can't find anywhere else.

I can remember building the personel carrier variant in the 70ties. In general not a bad kit. Made it for a friend who was a driver on this AMX during his service in the Dutch army. The tracks where indeed flexible as T-wraps.

1:350 USS The Sullivans DD-537 (Trumpeter 05304)1:350 USS Fletcher-class Destroyer Detail Set for Trumpeter kit (Tom's Modelworks 3557)
 
25. January 2016, 15:32
Steve Luckinbill
Hello all.
I've started the 1/350 Trumpeter USS The Sullivans DD-537. I will be building her in a "Last Stand of the Tin Can Sailors" diorama where the USS Johnston DD-557 of Taffy 3 commanded by LCdr Evans and his ship, charged the Japanese Center Force, during the Battle off Samar off Leyte Gulf, 23 Oct 44.
The Japanese Center Force consisted of the battleships Yamato, Nagato, Kongō, and Haruna; heavy cruisers Chōkai, Haguro, Kumano, Suzuya, Chikuma, Tone; light cruisers Yahagi, and Noshiro; and 11 Kagerō and Yūgumo-class destroyers.
When the center force was spotted by an Avenger scout plane, they were heading straight for the small force of American escort carriers, destroyers and destroyer escorts. To protect the carriers LCdr Evans laid down a smoke screen and attacked the Japanese force using the only weapons available to him. The Johnston charged the heavy cruiser Kumano, 5" main guns firing, and closed the gap to launch a torpedo attack to starboard on the Kumano. Moments later the bow of the heavy cruiser was blown off and the Johnston turned to continue the fight. The Johnston was hit shortly afterward by three battleship main guns, lost steerage and propulsion but was hidden by a rain squaw. She was able to restore one boiler and manual steerage and rejoin the fight along with the other destroyers, destroyer escorts and every plane that could be launched from the escort carriers as they were loaded.
The Johnston eventually succumbed to damage caused by Japanese destroyers and sunk with a loss of 186 men out of a crew of 327.
The diorama will consist of the Johnston at flank speed turning to port and laying a smoke screen, depicted prior to launching torpedoes to starboard..
I purchased Tom's PE set, Alliance Modelworks twin 40mm Bofors, single 20mm Oerlikon and will be purchasing 3D USN sailors from Shapeways.

I'm going to start with the base.
First, I cut out the foam for the hull with the ship leaning to starboard as she turns to port.

I then shaved out some waves and the wake swells and applied acrylic gel.

I then added paper towel and covered that with more acrylic gel. I'm using paper towel this time instead of paper strips. This should form a little better that paper. I am also using Liquitex Medium Gel, not because it's better than Golden, but because it was available at my local craft store at the time. Either product work as well.

The paper tower/paper is used to smooth out the texture of the foam. Once this dries, I will sand the surface and apply a little more gel to build up the waves.

More to come.
25. January 2016, 15:39
Calvin Gifford
Do you think the Liquitex would be available at most craft stores? Watching with interest - since my old Revell 'The Sullivans' only has a partial hull anyway I am thinking of chopping it off and building it waterline!
17. January 2017, 06:22
Steve Luckinbill
Either Liquitex or Golden should be. They are identical in chemistry and cost.
17. January 2017, 15:32
Christian Bruer
Hi Steve, you made a good start with the waterbase. The story behind USS Johnston and her crew is one of the most heroic acts in naval history. I'm looking forward to any progress with great interest.

Cheers, Christian

I was a little surprised to not see this book in the Model Companies section, given how big Airfix is and how many kits have been in their catalogue.

Completed the build. Many small and delicate parts. Replaced several items with wire. Fit was pretty good but there is flash on a great many parts and clean up is tough on the really small parts. Overall a real good build. Now for some paint.

Hi Henry, nicely done, but if I may say so, :) beware with the seam lines that appear in the optics. photo 32 :S
9. June 2015, 13:28
Henry Milton
Good eyes. I always go over my builds after I prime them to see if I missed any seams and such. The primer helps me see lines I might miss otherwise. I still think I would have missed that one, thanks.

Henry, I thought better to warn you before you start painting it. The close-up photos never lie. Glad to help :) and that you didn't mind ;)

Henry Milton
That is the kind of thing every modeler should appreciate. An extra pair of eyes never hurts and if you can't take a bit of advice or criticism of your work you will not get better and you have no business posting stuff on sites like this. The feedback is how you improve. Thanks again.

Cheers, Henry. Totally agree.

Gun is pretty much done, maybe a bit of tweeking the weathering and I think I saw some raw brass in the muzzle of the barrel so I need to get that sorted out. The base I one of several options I am looking at. I have figures and a nice set of ammo & crates from Resicast to work up and sort out.

Ulf Petersen
That looks great so far, Henry! Regarding the fact, that the ruined building results from the ongoing fighting I would recommend to put far more debris on the ground. So much that almost the whole pavement is covered.
26. June 2015, 04:17
Henry Milton
Thanks for the encouragement and advice Ulf. If I move forward with using this base I will look to add much more debris. The base is a resin product from Verlinden that is not really done yet and I am experimenting with this and other examples of resin bases at this point. I have all materials needed but I may save this base for a figures only vignette, we shall see.

I will be adding the figures and gear to this scene as soon as I get my rank badges from Archer. Most kits only offer rank for 1 sleeve but the British had rank on both sleeves. Archer has a real nice set of rank from lance corporal to RSM.

This one is complete. A great deal of fun was had working on this project.

Hey Rui, are actual Prices provided by the book?
5. June 2015, 14:43
Rui S
Hi Holger. No prices provided. For that you should see (for example) Caen Enchères Militaria Auctions:
- Collection Alexandre Belmer;
- Musee L'Espagne Dans la Guerre;
- 70eme Anniversaire du D-Day.

Started 2 of 10 kits for a major project. AFV Club 6LB AT gun. Very fine detail, very small parts. You can see in one photo I had to scratch build the left side gun barrel travel lock pin; carpet monster was hungry.
