Dear All,
I tried posting this before so apologies if this comes up twice!

My completed HMS/M Thrasher for the DDD campaign is completed and some photos can be found at -

The model is of Thrasher on Mediterranean service in 1943, the kit is Tom's Modelworks 1:700, now discontinued. Build is mostly out of the box except the 4" gun, a couple of crew members and a little rigging were added. Some reworking of the shape of the rear torpedo tubes was needed otherwise the kit is as it comes. Most of the time was taken in trying to simulate drainage holes through some careful masking and painting and in the seabase.

Hope you like it!

Mike
