Re: HMS FAULKNOR Destroyer question
I mentioned that many (MANY) years ago, we had articles from Airfix Magazine about conversions from their (few) kits, and it seemed absolutely wonderful.
Here is an article that addressed some of the conversions that could be done from the H class destroyer. https://www.davecov.org/modelling/reference/airfixmagazinearticles/warships/pdfs/August_1964_A_to_I_Class_Destroyers.pdf
Over the years a number of authoritative books have been written with drawings and illustrations. But for some of us, this kind of info, plus the photos and specifications you find on the internet, are a blessing.
Admittedly, British destroyers 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 !!
