Re: HMS FAULKNOR Destoyer question
"Buying a kit model of the Faulknor, if possible, would be another quick way to build this ship, eliminating so much research.
" Indeed it would - if there was such a tbhing!
Instead of collecting a lot of facts from other model builders, I would suggest instead finding authoritative books on British destroyers, with plans and illustrations and make it easier to build the Faulknor. Buying a kit model of the Faulknor, if possible, would be another quick way to build this ship, eliminating so much research. Trying to convert an existing ship kit, as the mentioned E class DD, is like trying to make a silk purse out of a sow's ear--and it would probably look like it!
Admittedly, British destoyers are a weak spot in my naval knowledge.
That being said ?
Can a 1:700 HMS FAULKNOR be fashioned from an existing kit, possibly a Tamiya E class ?
Now I have heard that British destroyer classes are usually very similar next to their assigned lettered groups- as in, potentially, that E,F & G classes can be sometimes indistinguishable from one another.... is this true, for the most part ?
And what would be a good starting point for FAULKNOR; the E class from Tamiya ?
As always, thanks for any imput here & enjoy your weekend !!
