    Hey Guys.

    Does anyone know a maker of a waterline kit of a Queen Elizabeth or Iron Duke class battleships. I tried JSC but it they don't got any. Is it possible to just convert a 1:300 Halinski or !:200 GPM HMS Warspite into a waterline model?

    Thanks

    It shouldn't be a problem to build the Modelik 1:200 Iron Duke as a waterline model.

    SO can i just cut the bottom part of the full hull? I'm not really an experienced modeler of full hull models but I'm thinking of just using the top part of the hull as a pattern and leaving of the bottom portion.

    You should be able to cut the frames at the waterline. That said, you might have to modify them a bit, as the longituninal frames may go through the bulkheads at odd points. Nothing too difficult.

    Thanks for the suggestion. I checked the Hull pieces of my Halinski HMS Warspite and I may have to modify some pieces a the waterline or I'll just fabricate hull parts based on JSC hull for HMS Dreadnought or HMS Lion.

    JSC does make HMS Lion, which is also a WW1 battlecruiser. And waterline.
