Buenos tardes marineros, it's time to leave the trotten shores and start something different. A year ago, I purchased a wooden sailing ship kit direct from Chris Watton's homepage, called Vanguard Models. It's a kind of Yacht in the typical scale for Chris's ships of 1/64. At first, I would have preferred a larger scale, but viewing the kit, it's amazingly detailed. Alert and Speedy, two military vessels, were on my list too, but I chose the Duchess of Kingston, because she has risen decks and great decorative ornaments all around. The kit is mainly wooden, but there are resin parts, photo etch and metal parts included as well. There is no need for aftermarket and the only things I added, were better blocks made from pear and a rowing boat, made from wood. Here is a link to the duchess of Kingston page on Vanguards website, where the complete manual (which is truly brilliant) available as PDF-file. Royal Yacht, Duchess of Kingston – 1778 – VANGUARD MODELS There is a build review available written by James Hatch on our fellow forum Model Ship World. Duchess of Kingston c.1780 by James H - Vanguard Models - 1:64 - FINISHED - - Kit build logs for subjects built from 1751 - 1800 - Model Ship World™ This is how the kit looks in it's appetizing box Cheers Rob
Hi guys, Even though rigging the Dh9a is a lot of fun I started thinking of my next project. This will be the Special Hobby I-16. But without paint. Showing the materials it was made off. Wood, linen, aluminium and putty. I'm using: • Fab Resin wheels • Renaissance model resin cockpit • Vector resin engine and cowling (full engine set) This is what I found online so far: If anyone has any info.... please share! What i still need to get is the Renaissance models ailerons and rudder set. And some Uschi wood grain decals ofcourse! Cheers, Jeroen
