Ahoy Julian

Very very cool display idea.

I hope Mrs Gremlin is not trying to do to much dusting with her injury?

Cheers

So envious, in fact reading the comments the first thing that sprang into my mind was a take-off of the 4 Yorkshire men skit:
..Wall?!! You're lucky to have a wall. I have to use a bookshelf, half falling down, with shelves missing.

You're so lucky to have a bookshelf. I have to stack 'em under the stairs!

Ohhh! I dream of space under the stairs! That would be fantastic for me. etc etc (Monty Python for modellers, perhaps?)

They just look amazing Julian!

About 10 years ago I attended a living ship day on the USS Hornet CV 12 at Alameda NAS. The guest speaker for the event was Lt.Col. Frank Kappeler who served as the navigator on plane #11 the Harri Kari,on the Doolittle Raid and he spoke at length of the training, mission, and escape from China. It was a great honor to meet and be in the presence of a true American hero and member of the greatest generation.

Hi I know this is a long shot but I got this kit a couple of years ago for my retirement unfortunately I too seriously ill and was off my feet for a long time.A couple of weeks ago I took the kit out to make a start on it.aTo my horror I couldn't find the instructions and then I remembered I took them out before I took ill to read over them and they went missing and can't find them anywhere.I came across your fantastic build from a few years ago and was wondering if you are still using them.if there is any help you could give it would be greatly appreciated I can pay you for any costs any thanks Anthony

Hello Anthony.

Julian hasn't been on this site for a few years now. Best site to try and find him would be Britmodeller.com. I would also try the manufacturer and see if the can send you a pdf of the instructions.

Cheers
