    1:700 scale G-Class (Beagle-Class) British destroyer that provided naval gunfire support in the Gallipoli campaign. The model is made by Combrig. Just waiting on her primer coat. The base measures 14 x 3.5 cm, giving some idea of the size of the model:

    Cool.
    I didn’t realize how thin the bridges were on these early destroyers. Photos really don’t show it well.
    What are the boats attached to?

    Tired is enough.

    Thank you, Thomaston. The boats are attached to photo-etched brass derricks. I am slowly mastering the use of photo-etched parts.

    Looks to me like you’ve done an excellent and clean job with the PE, very very well done!

    Getting the right tools was a huge help. Just need a steadier hand when placing the…. whoops.
