A couple of modellers on another site stated the hulls on theirs were warped to some degree, but mine seems to be OK. However, there are a couple of light molding seams running vertically through the hull plating in areas, and some sink holes to take of.

You have all probably seen Warreni's magnificent build of one at Model Shipwrights: Building Revells 1/72 Flower-Class Corvette

This new model may be my plunge into 1/144 ships! It looks very good. I look forward to one of you showing it off.

I'm hoping this will spur a new 1/144 WWII sub. We have a couple of Revell Type VIIs, a type II, a type XXIII, a XXI, and Trumpeter Gatos, but we sorely need a Type IX u-boat in 1/144. All I have is an inaccurate Academy Type IX in 1/150.

Michael, I am sure that RoG will scale down their two 1:72 Type IXs, in the near future but would really like a Type IX B with the deck armament. Cheers, Joe

I've just been in contact with Mark Hawkins of 3D Boats (Shapeways) and a replacement single 2lb Pompom is on the drawing board.

Hi Guys, Hey ... I am getting the REVELL 1:144 HMCS SNOWBERRY from SQUADRON for $27.59 (using my 40% Author's discount). Could anyone here knows RCN/RN/RAN/RNZN ships tell me what the SNOWBERRY had for her armament package like in late-1943, 1944, 1945? And what camou scheme she wore in that time-frame, please? Thank you, Tim
