and it just keeps getting bigger and bigger! :shock: :D

quick update on the american stuff, without advertising it, i'm selling it on in the hope someone out there will be able to fix it and run it on american lines, and a bit of whatever it makes going to cancer research, which seems the right thing to do.

Just a quick update, have been busy getting married etc, and this last week, have implemented phase 1 of operation 'shed ship' by way of starting to build a Revell 1:72 Flower Class Corvette. :shock:

Well, it fits through the shed door, so that's an advantage, couple of random awful photos to give an impression of scale etc.

Belated Congrats on the Marriage!

That's a fair old size ship you got there, I may be mistaken as I know nothing really of ships, but the name Corvette (spelling) reminds me of ships helping the atlantic convoys and dropping depth charges and stuff? Might have been in a book I read when I was much younger called The U-Boat Hunter, although i'm probs just prattling on nonsense and am entirely incorrect. Good luck with the build :P

Wasn't the Compass Rose the name of the ship in the novel (and film) "The Cruel Sea"??

Yes, and yes :)

It's a good old convoy protector, i am looking to name her after Jack Hawkin's command, HMS Compass Rose from the classic film.

Thanks Alex, so far married life is very acceptable :D

Fairly sure my grandad did some time on Flower class Corvettes, in between minesweepers (dicey!) and armed trawlers (mega-dicey!) that is. Enjoy the build mate!
