Thank you Phil,

just one (dumb???) question: do I have to enlist on the new forum again, or is the campaign just transfered???



I don't really know the answer to that. But the thread will continue on the new forum.

Great to have you, Alex. I think today is the last day of this version of MSW. There is a new thread for this build on the new forum here:

Hello everyone,

first, let me introduce myself: my Name is Alex, i'm from Munich (yes, the one with the famous Oktoberfest) and lately I discovered the "fun" of building ship models...

So, now I enlisted in this campaign to share my result with people who know much more than me about building small ships, and maybe I can learn one or two things on my way.

I want to participate with Hasegawa's "IJN destroyer Yugumo", Flyhawk's etched deck and Tetra Model Works detail set. Maybe there'll be other add-on's like guns or searchlights, but this decision will come later.

Fotos will follow as soon as I get the package from my dealer.

Have fun modelling
Alex

Hi Stephen,
Yes, the USS Noa kit depicts the ship following conversion in April 1940. i think it's based on the photo of the ship with the plane installed in the Philadelphia ship yard. You can also tell its prewar due to the lack of AA armament except for the 3" gun near the stern. I'm looking forward to working on it.
Thanks
John

Good choice John.
Interested to see how it builds. I have the Airfix reboxes of this kit in Royal Navy service. Will be watching with a lot of interest.

Does the Noa kit come with the seaplane conversion?

Hi guys
My Mirage kit of the USS Ward arrived a few days ago. My start photo is below. The Ebay seller also included a Mirage kit of the USS Noa as well. It was the Clemson class destroyer that was converted to carry an XSOC-1 seaplane in 1940. The kit is about 60-70% complete so I can't use it for the campaign but it looks to be an interesting build. Anyway, my start photo:



Thanks
John

Shanghai Dragon 1/700 USS Arleigh Burke DDG-51. First destroyer in over 20 years, hope I finish this one.

Thanks.

It doesn't seem to like my login credentials....



Did you make a new login for the main kitmaker website and the forums? If you don't use facebook or google you need to make separate logins for them both.

After talking to Jim I have decided to move this over to the new forum as the current forum will be phased out over the next few weeks.

I have created a new Thread over there and I encourage all of you to post your updates etc on that site.

It can be found here: https://forums.kitmaker.net/t/tin-can-sailors-campaign-group-build/314

...I love the little box with a 1/700 ijn destroyer in it. It feels so good in my hand.


Phil, I know what you mean! I can still remember picking up that "Water Line Series" Tamiya 1/700 Hatsuyuki kit at the dime store as a child (us old guys remember - the ones with the painting on the front and profile rendering of the ship on the back of the box). It did feel just right. The first of many more!

Hull, deck, and midships superstructure glued in place. I bailed on the funnel bands. I think it would look worse than if I left it off.

Thanks. I'm going to have to switch to a white background to photograph this grey ship.

Hopefully will have some more assembled tonight.

Components mostly painted. I'll let the linoleum dry overnight before masking it to get the grey down. A little bit of hand painting




Good start Phil!

I love weekend builds. No photos yet, but all of the subassemblies are assembled and primed. Hope to get a first coat on tomorrow and will post some pictures then.

All right then Lads: I hear you need a Type 45 for this campaign? So after careful consideration, I'll join in with my build which you can find on the New MSW site!

Now, where's the official thread to post the starting shots? And shouldn't it be on the new MSW site???

Another thanks for the link. It appears that the campaign page acts differently in each site. I'm usually on Aeroscale and it doesn't show any of the ship campaigns. I'm guessing that some part of the set up requires a "General Modeling" flag to be set before it shows up in the other queues.
I'm in with Shanghai Dragon Arleigh Burke in 1/700.
