    Dream kit and wish list?

    A 1:200 scale (or larger!!!) Royal Navy Type 23 Frigate.
    A beautiful ship - very graceful.

    I can but hope.
    regards

    Hi Barry,

    Yes i have a set of 'Jecobin' plans...and a fiberglass hull from Fleetscale at 1:96. One day i will get around to building it out as a radio controlled model, however i would LOVE to build a card version at 200 scale first....as i may be retired by the time i get to building the larger version (i am only 42 now!!!!).

    I've got those drawings too, but at my present rate of progress, the keel will be laid in January 2018, completion anytime 20 years after that....

    The thought had crossed my mind to try to design a card model from the Jecobin plans........however, i then came to my senses and realised I have not got a clue as to how to go about it.

    My mantra is " let those who can.....do ", and I certainly can't!!!!!!

    If some kind soul does produce a decent kit of this beautiful ship, I would GLADLY pay good money to acquire it.
