Re: Modeler challenge
take one Atlas HMS RODNEY OR NELSON, one Airfix, HMS ARK ROYAL, remove the structure from NELROD , i left the 6 inch guns, cut the flight deck from ARK to length to overhang the stern and part cover C 16 inch turret, use cut sections from the ARK to adjust the deck level and fill in. build the bridge adding a gunnery director from NELROD and there you have the USN version of what she may look like when completed,
Some of us are "just" collectors, who wouldn;t dream of cutting up a model for a conversion project; others wouldn't buy a model anymore without a conversion in mind! Others, still, just make what they want from scratch (oh, how I wish I had that level of skill!). So... here's a challenge to those who do or who have done conversions.... list three **easy** conversions you have done, and describe one in detail (starting model, materials needed, etc.) so that others out there might get some new ideas for Fall projects. Please don't include ones already archived on the website. In case you're wondering, I'm fishing for ideas to keep myself busy. If you can post pictures, even better! Simple (emphasis on the word simple) scratch-builds also welcome!
