I have apparently decided to go on a major fleet building project this year as I will be building ships for not 1, not 2 but 3 different Campaigns across the KitMaker network. I will also be building 2 ships for the one campaign for a total of 4 ships.
- Tin Can Sailors
- Siege of Malta
- WW I CAMPAIGN Honoring WnW
They are all running for 1 year so I have the time. I will be building them semi-concurrently.
Instead of having a new topic for each one I figured I would lump them all together into one thread.
For the Tin Can Sailors campaign I will be building 2 ships from the current Japanese Maritime Self-Defence Fleet.
Trumpeter JMSDF Myoko
and Trumpeter JMSDF Atago
I currently only have Trumpeter supplied PE for them but I am seriously considering getting more advanced sets, specifically ones with pre-cut railings. While trumpeter supply generic railings they neglected to show exactly where on the ships they go.
Next up I have the Showcase Models HMS Vendetta which will be for the WW I CAMPAIGN Honoring WnW. While this is an primarily focused on aircraft it is open to all vehicles/planes/ships etc from WW1.
This kit comes with a very nice set of PE included so hopefully no further AM will be needed.
Lastly, for the Malta Campaign I will be building Trumpeters HMS Zulu (1941) in her late 1942 fit out.
There is some work to do on this one. Not only do I have to bring her up to her 1942 specs but I also have to try mix the very well known issues with the Trumpeter Tribal’s which are the incorrect ships boats, the bow sheer and incorrect AA. I will not be messing with the screws, mostly because I cannot find a good replacement set. To help with this I have bought a bunch of AM. I will be laying that out in further posts.
