Re:- Merit 1/350 HMS Ark Royal built up model for sale locally but missing its 2 off boat cranes.
Thinking of buying this model but wondering what I could plunder from my spares box to replace them with.
#1/ A Cunning Plan ~ I have spare boat cranes from the Trumpeter 1/350 HMS Repulse ( 1941 fit ) kit.This kit has the option of photo etch or plastic cranes.
#2/ The Steel Navy brains trust recently advised me that RN KGV-class BB cranes are totally design. This later crane design being also used on BB's HMS Queen Elizabeth & HMS Valiant.
Any thoughts folks ?
Attached is a Link to photo of a Fairey Swordfish being hoisted about the Ark.
