Default First pictures post HMCS ARROWHEAD

Hi all,

I want to share a build that is part of the Canadian Naval Centennial celebrations. I was supposed to be completed in February, but stuff got in the way.

This is the HMCS ARROWHEAD K 145, one of Canada's Flower Class corvettes that were used for convoy escort duties during the battle of the atlantic. The kit is the (now discontinued) Revell 1/72 HMCS Snowberry. I went an step further, and scratched an interior for the engine room and a couple messdecks forward.

and now, the pics!

humble beginnings:
the engine room

the forward messdecks

the aft bandstand had its exagerrated sidewall removed and some more scale installed
the bridge. Not much of the kit was used for this:


the engine, a three week ordeal!



Mostly done. I wanted to include these two to shoe the lighting I did

(I kinda like how huge the engine looks in this shot)


and here it is, all put together:

Very nicely done interior; especially like the weathering on the exterior. Not sure which would have been better duty, being on a merchantman trying to cross the Atlantic or on a Flower Class Corvette doing the same thing - either way they were very small vessels on a very large and unforgiving ocean.

Will this be displayed some where as part of the centennial ?

I was planning to take it to the various shows this year, but I'm deploying in a couple weeks until december. The president of my local IMPS has agreed to take it to a few shows,and I will try to get my girlfriend to take to the Big Island open model competition in September.

after that, I will donate it to either the Naval or the Maritme Museum

Lol, the one I heard was "would roll on a wet lawn!"

By the way, the kit makes an awesome RC boat!

This is the first (of four) Flower Class corvettes I've built, the HMCS SACKVILLE. She's got a 12V motor, direct drive and a 6V gel cell. full scale speed was about two clicks on the trim. Full throttle would yield about 70 scale knots!

Cool. When you take her out, is it just a case of giving her a wipe off (the boat!) or is there a more detailed process?

A trick I learned, when you take the boat out of the water, tilt it stern down, and most of the water will run off.

Which to be honest with you is where this lass deserves to be.
First thing to come to my mnd was that's a damn sharp build, second thing was that it's just the sort of thing in the manner it's presented, that i'd expect to see in a maritime museum.

Stirling job that modeler and welcome aboard!
